In May of 2013 McKinsey & Company published their now famous report which outlined twelve disruptive technologies that would have a big impact by 2025. 3D printing was one of them and consumer products were a driving force. 

In the report, they noted that, “3D printing could have meaningful impact on certain consumer product categories, including toys, accessories, jewelry, footwear, ceramics, and simple apparel.” They predicted that “global sales of products in these categories could grow to $4 trillion a year (at retail prices) by 2025.”
