Footwear industry is using more and more 3D printing technology to develop and manufacture their products
and prototypes. According to the “3D-Printed Footwear 2019-2029, an Analysis of the Market Potential of
3D Printing in the Footwear Industry” study specifies that the overall demand of AM materials in Footwear
Industry is expected to reach 3.7 thousand metric tons by 2029. Accordingly, adding new functionalities in
the midsole can be of high importance for the future market. This technology allows midsoles not only to be
more agile and flexible during the initial design & testing phases but also allows them to iterate faster with
a faster time to market meeting the customer expectations with a better product.
