Market Overview

The growth of the global 3D printing medical implants market is thriving on the back of increasing focus on advancement of medical products backed by the rising investments in R&D by the key players, coupled with the growing importance of 3D printing in the healthcare industry. 3D printing plays an essential role in the healthcare industry as it provides healthcare specialists the power to manufacture several medical devices. 3D printing is a process in which a three-dimensional object is created by building consecutive layers of raw material. Each new layer created is fixed with the previous layer until the object is complete. Such objects are manufactured from a digital 3D file, such as Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) or a computer-aided design (CAD) drawing. The 3D printing technology has numerous utilities in manufacturing medical devices such as cranial and orthopedic implants, titanium replacements of jaws and hips, surgical apparatus, dental fillings such as crowns, and external prosthetics, and limb prosthetics. Owing to the easy usage and innovative technology, many medical specialists prefer 3D printing devices before initiating any treatment or surgery, which tends to reduce the risk of any error.

The global 3D printing medical implants market reached a value of around USD 900 million in the year 2018 and is expected to garner a value of around USD 4800 million by the end of 2027 by registering a CAGR of around 19% across the globe over the forecast period 2019-2027. Further, the worldwide market of 3D printing medical implants is anticipated to achieve an incremental $ opportunity of around USD 800 million in the year 2027 as compared to the previous year.
