This Market Perspective analyzes COVID-19's impact on the 3D printing market in Africa, highlighting the market's capabilities and limitations. Given the existing challenges on the continent, the pandemic is likely to accelerate adoption of 3D printing technology and create new opportunities for existing market stakeholders."The adoption of 3D print technology across Africa region has been slow over the last few years, with applications limited to uses cases such as concept modeling and functional prototyping. Given the 3D print market's high responsiveness and agility to fill in medical supply-chain gaps, COVID-19 will likely compel more businesses in Africa to reconsider their adoption of the technology and make a profound impact on disrupted supply chains." -- Research Manager Samar El Sayed, IDC Middle East and Africa
