Venture Funding For 3-D Printing On Track For Record Year Even Before Carbon’s Coming $300M Deal


Venture funding for 3-D printing companies is on track for a record year, according to an analysis of deals conducted by VC database PitchBook for Forbes. That’s the case even before accounting for the coming $300 million fundraise from 3-D printing unicorn Carbon, which was first reported by PitchBook on Thursday.

So far this year, 3-D printing companies have attracted $400 million in venture funding, half the $800 million they had garnered in the entirety of last year, and surpassing the $300 million they’d attracted the year before that, according to the PitchBook analysis. If deal flow continued at that rate, it would cross the billion-dollar mark for the first time in five years, even before accounting for the Carbon deal.
