Detailed 3D Prototyping market research case study

We are very interested in the new and growing world of rapid prototyping. There are 3D printers, 5 axis CNC, laser scanning and more activities within the UK. We'd like to know how big demand might be, who the competition are, where they are, what services they offer? we are most interested in the small prototyping and one-off pieces in high quality such as toy and jewelry production.

What we need is a market research report to see how many companies do this, what services they offer, perhaps you can even find lead-times and prices and give us an idea for demand. We are only interested in the United Kingdom for now. Some links are for the USA but they are more machinery suppliers in some cases than 'competition'.

Research questions:

What printing techniques produce the best quality prints? (not all printers print in layers)

Who is offering what kind of service

With what technology

In what part of the country, and

What can we do better?

We'd like to have better quality machines (look at the Ultra 2 link) and ensure it is busy for every possible hour (no idle time). Geographic location of companies in the UK would be interesting too. Industrial Plastic Fabrications is our ultimate business model.

We are not really interested in low-budget home install printers unless they are exceptionally good.
