3D printing is a process of creating a solid three dimensional physical object from a digital design. It involves the process of additive manufacturing where an object is formed by adding materials layer by layer. 3D printing is emerging as an efficient and cost effective manufacturing option for medical devices industry for certain key functions such as dental implants, hearing aids, custom made knee, surgical instruments and many more. In addition, it also helps surgeons to plan and strategize surgeries in advance, which in turn supports in reducing the operational risks involved during complex and critical surgical procedures, risk of infection, and decrease the time duration of anesthesia exposure. 3D printing is poised to disrupt the medical devices market by encouraging new entrants, enabling precision planning for surgeries and optimizing device design and development.
Continuous technological developments in healthcare, increasing demand for patient-specific products in dental, orthopedics and many more, reduced cost as compared to traditional product manufacturing, private and government funding to support the development of products and technologies, enhanced productivity leading to reduced waiting periods for devices are key factors driving the growth of the 3D printing medical devices market. Furthermore, strong push towards mergers and acquisitions to increase market share, expiry of key patents, and rising demand for organ transplantation at affordable prices are offering high-growth prospects for the various market players. However, the strict regulatory process for the approval of 3D-printed medical devices, lack of trained professionals and high cost of 3D-printed organs and tissues are some of the key restraints hampering growth of 3D printing medical devices market.
