Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled "3D Printing in Medical Applications Market (Medical Implants (Dental, Orthopedic, Cranio-maxillofacial), Surgical Guides, Surgical Instruments, Bio-engineered Products) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" to its report store.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2014 -- In a discipline that requires constant innovation in order to save lives, 3D printing has revolutionized the field of medicine by empowering practitioners and researchers. The success of the global 3D printing in medical applications market depends largely on the fact that the advanced 3D technology has not only enhanced the quality of a patient’s life but also reduced the manufacturing cycle and eliminated the prototyping process. 3D printing constructs a desired product layer by layer using various materials such as ceramics, polymers, metals, and biological cells. In the field of healthcare, it offers precise and customized medical devices such as dental prosthetics, hearing aids, braces for scoliosis, exoskeletons and implantable devices. In extremely complex surgeries, a 3D printer offers surgeons planning models to practice on and plan the best approach.

Among the technologies that are used in 3D printing for medical applications, photopolymerization and laser beam melting (LBM) are expected to be the fastest growing sub-segments from 2013 to 2019 and also accounted for the largest market share. The most commonly used raw materials for the manufacture of bio-models are metal and polymers. The medical implants application (including dental, carnio-maxillofaial and orthopedic) is forecast to grow at the highest CAGR of 15% during 2013-2019.
- 3D printing: The future of medicine
Thanks to 3D printing, the medical industry has undergone a revolution. Providing multiple solutions to large problems, 3D printing has reduced the cost and time of surgical procedures and simultaneously improved patient care. The advancement in medical technology has widened the scope of 3D printing applications and the trend of using customized 3D printed medical products has risen over the years. Moreover, private agencies and government bodies have contributed in terms of funds and encouragement that have propelled the growth of the 3D printing in medical applications market. A move that can increase the prospect of the industry is seeking acquisitions by software companies in the field of 3D designing. The factors which curb the development of the 3D printing market are fewer trained professionals and lack of raw materials.
- Competitive insights
The 3D printing in medical applications market is oligopolistic in nature and is dominated by a handful of significant players. The major companies include 3D System, EnvisionTEC GmbH, Materialise NV, Arcam AB, and Stratasys Inc.
