Abstract

In this paper, we provide an extensive bibliometric review of the literature dealing with the impact of AM on industry, business and society, by mapping prior research in the field, across a wide spectrum of journals. The analysis illustrates the evolution of AM research over the last few decades, the main outlets for publication, the level of concentration or fragmentation of the scientific community, the geographical density of the research collaborations and the employed methodologies. We also disentangle the main topics that have been addressed by the community of scholars debating the impact of AM and depict the current knowledge base on which AM research is grounded.
