Since its introduction over a decade ago, 3D printing as a technology has revolutionized manufacturing as a process. Ever increasing cost pressures on medical device manufacturers and their intense need to introduce innovative products has forced them to adopt 3D printing as a means to reduce the manufacturing life cycle and almost completely eliminate the traditional prototyping process. Traditional manufacturing techniques are based on the subtractive method where, the required product is created by cutting or drilling of the base material. 3D printing builds the desired products layer-by-layer through addition of materials. Hence, this process is also called as additive manufacturing.
This report includes an estimation of the global market for applications of 3D printing in the healthcare segment in terms of value (USD million) for the period 2013-2019, considering 2012 as the base year. In addition, current market trends and recent developments are taken into consideration while determining the growth rate of the global 3D printing medical applications market.
The overall 3D printing market for medical applications has been categorized on the basis of its applications, raw materials, and technology. The applications market has been focused only on the medical applications of 3D printing and further segmentation has been provided which includes implants, surgical guides, surgical instruments and bioengineered products. The 3D printing technology market includes those technologies which are used extensively in medical applications for manufacturing bio-models.
These technologies comprises of laser beam melting, electron beam melting, photopolymerization and droplet deposition manufacturing. The raw materials market includes the market focused for use in medical applications. The raw materials market comprises of metals, alloys, polymers, ceramics and others. The market for all these segments and sub-segments is estimated for the period 2013 - 2019 in terms of value (USD million).
