Every 3D Printing Stock & Share Price Publicly Traded 2020

In the early 2000s there were hardly any 3D printing stocks to buy; the industry was not large enough for companies to go public. However, during 2013 and 2014 when the best 3D printer companies were tipped to become a global manufacturing phenomenon, shares rose exponentially and hitt record highs. Though confidence in the future performance of 3D printing is still buoyant, the valuations reached between 2013 and 2015 have since dropped to more stable levels.

Stratasys was the first 3D printing stock you could buy, having gone public in 1994, selling 1.38 million shares to raise around $5.7M. Other big 3D printing companies to go public include 3D Systems in 2011 on the New York Stock Exchange.

There are currently 14 publicly traded 3D printing companies, with their share prices, market caps and areas of specialty listed, along with some company information. If you own or work for a company we have missed — or has been delisted — please let us know. Not all the featured companies act solely in the 3D printing industry — though any company with a sizable portion of its revenue related to 3D printing was included.

Note: Stock prices are taken from 6th April 2020. Share prices and market caps will fluctuate beyond this time, but we will endeavor to update this list as often as we can.

3D Systems

The original 3D printer company, and industry legend of over 30 years, 3D printing would likely not be where it is now without 3D Systems.

Three decades after releasing the first ever 3D printer — the SLA-1, utilizing stereolithography technologies — 3D Systems are nor worth close to a billion dollars. They’ve expanded into Direct Metal Laser Sintering, Selective Laser Sintering, and more as the company continues to innovate and grow.

Moreover, 3D Systems sell a relatively cheap 3D scanner, the Sense 2, for under $500. It’s an impressive handheld scanner, showing 3D Systems are capable of creating great products, no matter the sector.

Stratasys

  • Stock exchange: NASDAQ
  • 3D printing stock market cap (as of November 2019): $805M
  • 3D printing share price: $14.80
  • Area of 3D printing: FDM 3D printers, PolyJet, Lost Wax Casting

Like 3D Systems, Stratasys also have over 30 years 3D printing experience, having launched the first ever FDM 3D printer — the 3D Modeler — back in the early 1990s.

Since then, Stratasys have moved into Polyjet among other 3D printing technologies having merged with Object Geometries, as well as buying Makerbot for around $400M in stock.

Additionally, Stratasys run Stratasys Direct, a 3D printing service; and SolidScape, a 3D printed jewelry manufacturer.

Proto Labs

  • Stock exchange: NYSE
  • 3D printing stock market cap (as of November 2019): $2.02B
  • 3D printing share price: $78.05
  • Area of 3D printing: 3D printing service

Proto Labs don’t make their own 3D printers, but instead offer a 3D printing service as well as services in CNC milling and injection molding.

Now employing over 1,000 staff across Europe, Japan and North America and a share market cap of around $2B, Proto Labs is undoubtedly one of the most successful companies to operate in the 3D printing industry.

It’s important to note however that despite the large share capital, not all of Proto Labs’ sales are in the 3D printing industry — in their reported Q3 2019 earnings only an estimated 13.4% of revenues came from 3D printing.

Materialise NV

  • Stock exchange: NASDAQ
  • 3D printing stock market cap (as of November 2019): $932M
  • 3D printing share price: $19.06
  • Area of 3D printing: professional 3D software, manufacturing & marketplace

The first European 3D printing stock on our list — despite being listed on the NASDAQ exchange — Belgian company Materialise sell 3D software for manufacturing and use in the medical industry, as well as operating online platform i.materialise.

i.materialise is very interesting as, in a similar vein to Shapeways, it allows budding designers to upload their 3D models, and when customers order, Materialise fulfill the order and the designer gets a commission.

Combining both this consumer market with the B2B software and manufacturing market has proven successful for Materialise NV, with their share capitalization totaling almost a billion dollars and growing.

Autodesk

Autodesk are undoubtedly a software giant — and with a market cap of over $30B, their immense success is undeniable.

The American company makes 3D CAD software tools for almost every industry, encompassing rapid prototyping, industrial manufacturing, architecture, as well as making phone apps for for basic endeavors.

Autodesk’s product list is almost endless: AutoCAD, AutoCAD Mobile, Civil 3D, Fusion 360, and Maya are just some of the software options you can purchase from the American company. It’s worth noting however that not all Autodesk’s products involve 3D printing, but the company has close enough ties to include.

HP

  • Stock exchange: NYSE
  • 3D printing stock market cap: $21.62B
  • 3D printing share price: $14.98
  • Area of 3D printing: Multi Jet Fusion and Metal Jet 3D printers

HP are well known as a leader in desktop computers, but are lesser known for some of the innovation HP have brought to the additive manufacturing sector in the last two years.

Utilizing their patented Multi Jet Fusion technology, HP have released a number of industrial 3D printers capable of printing in full-color, including their Jet Fusion 4200, 5200, and Metal Jet models. Though it’s difficult to tell how much of HP’s $20B+ valuation is down to 3D printing, HP are undoubtedly one of the most innovative companies currently in the industry.

Organovo

  • Stock exchange: NASDAQ
  • 3D printing stock market cap: $37.83M
  • 3D printing share price: $0.30
  • Area of 3D printing: 3D bioprinting

We’ve previously covered Organovo in our 3D bioprinting and 3D printed organs feature story. Organovo work on created 3D printed tissues which can be used to fight diseases, and overcome some of the current difficulties in transplants such as rejection by the host.

Despite at one point being valued at $500M, Organovo’s share price has dwindled of late, falling from over $7 to just $0.30 as of April 2020. Hopefully the bioprinting company can turn it around and find success.

Robo 3D

Robo 3D are another fast-growing, US-based desktop 3D printer brand, and currently sell a range of low cost printers, including their C2, R2 and E3 printers.

Recently, Robo 3D has acquired education startup MyStemKits, and now sell a variety of education kits featuring their Robo E3 3D printer, along with online training guides, filament and everything else necessary to teach a class full of children about additive manufacturing. We interviewed Robo 3D about their commitment to 3D printers in schools, which you can view here.

Nano Dimension

  • Stock exchange: TLV
  • 3D printing stock market cap: $23.94M
  • 3D printing share price: $5.90
  • Area of 3D printing: industrial 3D printing

Israel-based Nano Dimension are unique in the 3D printing industry in that they do not make 3D printers that only attempt to print plastics, or metal. Instead, they simultaneously print any polymers necessary for structure with the conductive metals to form functioning electronics.

However, the company appears to have struggled as of recent, with the stock losing around 90% of its value since 2017. Hopefully Nano Dimension can turn things around, restoring investor confidence and bringing the 3D printing company’s share price back up to previous levels.

Voxeljet

  • Stock exchange: NYSE
  • 3D printing stock market cap: $3.18M
  • 3D printing share price: $0.85
  • Area of 3D printing: Metal 3D printers

We’ve previously discussed Voxeljet in our metal 3D printer write up, with the company showing impressive expansion across Germany, the UK, and setting up Voxeljet China. Since then, the company has kept up with its track record of innovation, releasing the VX4000 — the largest 3D printer in the world, according to Voxeljet.

In terms of stock price, Voxeljet is another 3D printing company that many saw huge potential in back in 2013 and 2014, with the share price in November 2014 hovering around $12. Since then, this has fallen dramatically.
