When we create machines that can create stuff from raw atoms they will probably require large power sources and strange chemicals to operate. I would think that manufacturing would simply replace their current production with a replicator system if it was cheaper to do so.

as for small personal replicators the cost for items would shift from retail to the cost of materials and the "template". Templates being software, they would be protected and pirated as they are today-- so the lesson here is that when personal replicators are invented, invest in the materials. profit!
