Global 3D Printing Medical Devices Market

Posted by ahila on March 20th, 2018

3D Printing Medical Devices Market: 3D printing is otherwise called as additive manufacturing that utilises layer-by-layer addition technique for producing the physical objects from 3D digital file. 3D printing technology is rising due to the increase in demands of the personalised medical care by providing customised medical devices based on the needs of the individuals. 3D printing technology is flourishing in many application areas in healthcare like medical, implants, drug manufacturing dental and others. Materials used for this process will vary according to the need. For instance, metals and ceramics are mostly used in dental implants to print dental crowns, own array of bio-materials are used by the medical industry. 3D printing is used to make 3D printed models of organs plan and practice of complex surgeries

3D Printing Medical Devices Market: Market Outline

A number of factors such as continuous technological advancements in 3D printing, increase in public and private investments to develop new 3D printing technologies, rise in acceptance of 3D-printed implants and organs are propelling the demand of 3D printing medical devices market. In addition, growing demand of organ transplantation, consolidation of industry by mergers and acquisitions to enhance market share in the global 3D printing medical devices market. However, high cost associated with advanced 3D printers, lack of both structured regulatory frameworks and reimbursement policies, copyright and patent issues associated with the 3D printing of patented products is expected to hamper the market growth.
