    With a market cap of more than $49 billion, Hewlett-Packard will become the biggest player in the 3D printing industry. Therefore, the thought of producing faster and cheaper 3D printers isn't too far-fetched for HP as the company has enough resources to fund the Research and Development (R&D) of this technology. To put into perspective, HP spent more than $3.4 billion on R&D in the preceding year, therefore it's evident that the company will not shy away from spending on R&D once it enters the market.

    Furthermore, with more than $13 billion in cash, Hewlett-Packard can even consider acquiring other small name players like Arcam AB (OTC: OTC:AMAVF), Organovo (ONVO), and ExOne (XONE), which will diversify its product offerings. All these companies have an annual revenue of less than $50 million, but they are enhancing their revenues rapidly by improving their product offerings and may become a takeover target for Hewlett-Packard in the future.
