Foot insoles market in the US: Introduction of 3D printing in foot insoles

The increase in R&D activities accompanied by advanced technology is assisting in making effective use of 3D printing in formulating orthotics. 3D printing manufacture takes less time compared to the conventional manufacturing processes. Some of the advantages of using 3D printing to produce precision orthotics include faster delivery, customized variable densities by controlling the areas that require added support, and provision for softer areas.

“In 3D printing, the soles are made layer by layer so that their porous support structure is lightweight and breathable. Moreover, the application of 3D printing technique helps in eliminating the material wastes and labor costs, thereby it helps develop better products that are also cost-effective,” says a senior research analyst at Technavio.
