In the past decade, the orthopedic implant industry has been quietly revolutionized through the use of additive manufacturing. Today, the penetration rate of additive production of standard-sized implants is expanding rapidly. In the future the researcher believes the majority of implants will be produced additively, creating a new revenue stream for printers and materials as well as new opportunities in the healthcare business itself.
This AM expansion is impacting the entire implant sector including spinal, hip, knee, and other types of implants. And successful case studies of additively made implants have further fueled the role of 3D printing in true patient-specific devices. This SmarTech report is the only worldwide market analysis specific to additive orthopedics.
This study provides:
Complete coverage of the worldwide additive orthopedic implants market including craniomaxillofacial, hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, thoracic/spine, and custom implants in both metal and non-metal materials
A comprehensive analysis of the developments in the materials used for additively produced orthopedic implants. This includes a discussion of biodegradable and lightweight reinforced polymers
A detailed ten-year market forecast of opportunities in AM hardware and material sales for printed orthopedic implants and devices, including breakouts by technology, material group, and implant type. These forecasts are provided in both volume and value terms
Analysis and ten-year projections of secondary opportunities for additive orthopedics including specialty print services and software
Profiles of the marketing and business development activities at the market leaders in the additive implant space as well as the most innovative companies in the field
As we see it, additive manufacturing represents the only true path to economic viability and production feasibility for implants designed and shaped to a specific patient with unique trauma, degenerative disease, or birth defects. Indeed, additive manufacturing will be a key piece of the holy grail of orthopedic (and other medical) care, in which physical solutions are tailored to the exact needs of an individual patient.
This study identifies where the money will be made and lost as these trends play out. It will be vital reading not only for executives in the 3D printing/additive manufacturing space, but also for marketing and product managers at companies in the medical materials, medical device and healthcare industries.
