Healthcare to Be 3D Printing Manufacturers' Largest Market by 2022, the Business Research Company Forecasts


London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2018 -- In 2016, the global aerospace and healthcare markets for 3D printing devices, services and supplies were both worth around $1.2 billion. By 2022, though, as a report from The Business Research Company, 3D Printing Devices, Services and Supplies Market 2014-2022 shows, healthcare will be worth over 30% more than aerospace. Growing government and private funding to support the development of new 3D printing technologies will be a major driver of 3D printing healthcare spend. A growing demand for organ transplantation and the ease of development of customized medical products by 3D printing devices offer new growth opportunities to the companies operating in this market. The use of 3D printing devices is expected to increase in the healthcare industry by 28.6% year on year, which means that in 2022 one fifth of all sales of 3D printing devices, services and supplies will be made to the healthcare industry.

In 2022 the healthcare market for 3D printing devices, services and supplies will be split among the Americas, Asia-Pacific and the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa regions). Even though the Americas remains the biggest market in the world, its growth will be a little slower than that of Asia Pacific or EMEA. Asia-Pacific is expected to see the highest growth rate, at 33% year on year.

The market for global 3D printing technology is characterized by the presence of well-diversified domestic and international players with a range of product and service offerings. The top 3 competitors in the 3D printing services market in 2017 are Materialise NV, Photo Labs Inc. and Gitim GmbH. These three companies make up about three fourth of the market with Materialise NV's share being over half of the market.

These global players are increasing their presence strategically across various geographies through acquisitions and collaboration. Strategic acquisitions include 3D Hubs purchase of Printivate, and BigRep acquisition of NOWlab. The aim of the first acquisition was to improve 3D file handling and printability prediction, while the acquisition of NOWlab helped BigRep offer a wide range of material and design consultation services.

In contrast to the global players, the small domestic companies are finding it difficult to compete, particularly on quality, price, and technological innovation. They thus provide the global players with significant acquisition opportunities.
