Last year we conducted the most comprehensive Salary Survey in Additive Manufacturing created to date by studying more than 4000 employees and more than 100 employers across AM.

This is an excellent opportunity for employers within Additive Manufacturing to collectively shape the compensation landscape within our industry in the year to come. Both employees and employers requested the 2016 survey results and the report received numerous accolades. It is a benchmark survey that addresses an industry that is just beginning to build its voice.


Please note that questions 3-9 cover EMEA region, questions 10-16 cover APAC region and questions 17-23 cover North America region. Please also note that the salary banding in EMEA is indicated in Euros (€) and in APAC and North America in US dollars ($).

For each question regarding salary banding you must select one option from each column (i.e. you will have a total of five responses per question).

For salary banding, should an exact match be unavailable, please select the most appropriate option.
