Singapore with less than six million inhabitants and a small area is recognized as an economic power. Last year, it exported goods worth 373 billion dollars (almost twice as much as Poland and more than Great Britain) which earned it a strong position among top ten largest exporters in the world. The phenomenon of this country is also the fact that the value of exported goods exceeded the size of national incomeconsiderably. It is the effect of a small internal market and perfect understanding of its job as an intermediary in international trade. The country mainly exports machines, devices, electronics and mineral fuels (60%).
Singapore is one of the fastest growing countries in the world. Many research centers for additive manufacturing are launched here, and the government supports the development of modern technologies. The introduction of our solutions to this market is a natural stage in the development of our sales network – comments Marcin Szymański, VSHAPER Product Manager.
