This paper reviews some of the recent additive manufacturing research and development works in China. A considerable amount of AM research activities in China focuses on directed energy deposition processes, powder bed fusion processes and stereolithography, with much of the effect dedicated to system and application development. Although many of the recent results are not readily available from the literatures published in China, from the available information the areas of focus for research and development could be clearly seen. Despite some speculations, the AM research in China is vibrate and aggressive, with some areas at least several years ahead of the other countries.
