Global Healthcare 3D Printing Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2016 - 2022


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2017 -- The 3D printing, which is also termed as additive manufacturing is a process of production of 3-Dimensional physical items from a digital file. Previously, in the field of paramedics device manufacturing, the stereolithography technology was largely used however, owing to its high cost, the use of this technology was later discontinued. The 3-Dimentional printing technology evolved from the prototyping in different applications into the development of operational products and parts. With the use of healthcare 3D printing, various physiological applications such as dental implants, hearing aids, contact lenses and prosthesis are customized for the patients. Additionally, the 3D printing technology possesses the advantage of low cost, environment friendly, tool-less and its sustainable nature as compared to the conventional stereo lithography techniques. Hence this technology is considered to be crucial in the field of paramedics. Personalized digital-data represents a blueprint for the future healthcare 3-Dimentional printing market solutions, from knee and hip implants to dental crowns and from hearing aids to orthotic footwear and prosthetic limbs.
