In 2014, the 3D printing market experienced a wide-spread crash after investor hype in late 2013 and early 2014 sent company values soaring to billions of dollars, only to be brought down by lower than expected consumer sales. Stratasys' stock price dropped almost 90% between September 2014 and February 2016, to $15.6.

Stratasys’ stock is currently traded at $20.81 on Nasdaq on Wednesday pre-trade, with a slight downwards trend.

Stratasys is a leading manufacturer of 3D printers and production systems for several industries, including aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and consumer products. In 2012 the company merged with Objet Ltd., a privately held 3D printer manufacturer based in Israel, and since then has been dually headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel. Stratasys has around 2,500 global employees.

Stratasys reported revenues of $179.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $175.3 million for the same period last year, and GAAP net loss of $10 million ($0.19 per diluted share), compared to a loss of $14.8 million ($0.30 per diluted share) for the same period last year. For the fiscal year 2017, the company reported revenues of $668.4 million compared to $672.5 million for the fiscal year 2016. Its GAAP net loss for 2017 was $40.0 million ($0.75 per diluted share), compared to $77.2 million ($1.48 per diluted share) for 2016.
