Strengthening scientific and human potential, improving the regulatory framework, activating import substitution processes – such priorities are outlined in the Strategy for the Development of Additive Technologies for the Period up to 2030, approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) involves the creation of products by layer-by-layer build-up. As Mikhail Mishustin noted at a meeting of the Government on June 24, this method can significantly reduce the time from development to the release of finished products, reduce energy consumption, and most importantly – create such products and structures, the appearance of which previously seemed impossible.

The strategy focuses on the key technologies needed to build a competitive industry. We are talking, in particular, about the development of printing biological tissues, high-precision objects for the aerospace and nuclear industries, elements of residential buildings. To do this, it is necessary to establish a serial production of equipment for 3D printing, components and materials used in production. The most important sectoral projects, as indicated in the document, will be provided with state support.

The formation of a new high-tech industry will require the adoption of modern standards and regulations. At the same time, regulatory and organizational barriers hindering the development of exports and cooperation should be minimized. To strengthen human resources, it is proposed to continue updating professional and educational standards, to start monitoring the industry’s needs for qualified specialists.

It is expected that the implementation of the strategy will increase the volume of the Russian market for additive technologies by more than three times, and will become an additional incentive for the innovative development of the domestic economy.
