3D Printing in Healthcare Market Size & Growth (2020 – 2025)

The global 3D printing in the healthcare market is anticipated to touch USD 3692 Million by 2026, registering a CAGR above 18%, from USD 973 Million in 2019. 3D printing is a process that forms a three-dimensional object from a computer-aided design (CAD) model, mostly by successively adding material layer by layer, this is why it is also called additive manufacturing. 

3D printing is used for the development of new surgical cutting and drill guides, prosthetics and the creation of patient-specific replicas of organs, bones, and blood vessels. And the recent developments in 3D printing in healthcare have led to lighter, stronger and safer products, lower costs and reduced lead times. The customized parts can be tailored to each individual which improves the understanding of patients by medical professionals and improves patient comfort level by allowing interaction with products that are designed especially for their anatomy type. 

The global 3D printing in the healthcare market has witnessed significant growth in recent times due to the rapid technological advancements, an increase in investments in R&D activities, and rapid expansion of the customer base. Moreover, the increase in the scope of biomedical applications and efficient material usage is the fuelling factor in this 3D printing in the healthcare market. In addition, the use of 3D printing in the healthcare industry is expected to facilitate effective pre-operative planning, better surgeon practice, and enhanced patient outcomes.

But the high cost involved in the purchase of 3D printers, lack of quality & regulatory frameworks for 3D printers and reimbursement challenges, are the key factors that are hampering the growth of the global 3D printing in the healthcare market. Additionally, inadequate technical know-how in developing economies impedes the market boom.

Recent Developments

  • SLM Solutions Group AG, a manufacturer of 3D metal printers listed on the stock market and co-owner of the word mark SLM which was headquartered in Lübeck, Germany, and Divergent Technologies has executed a letter of intent to purchase next-generation AM Machines and further increase their partnership strategically.

  • Mr Czinger was appointed to expand and deepen the strategic partnership between the companies and the SLM Solutions Supervisory Board in June 2019.

  • 3D Systems DDD, a company that engineers, manufactures and sells 3D printers that were headquartered in Rock Hill, South Carolina, was developing tissue and scaffold bioprinting processes for third party companies, aiming to expedite the advancements in the biomedical industries by partnering with CollPlant Biotechnologies CLGN.

Drivers and Restraints of 3D Printing in the Healthcare Market

The reduction in cost & time in the medical procedures for the transplants, surgeries and rapid expansion of the customer base is one of the primary drivers of the global 3D printing in the healthcare market. The best suitability as an alternative to animal testing with the organs made out of 3D printing technology, the customizations offered by this technology and efficient material usage are the fuelling factors of the market.

However, the stringent copyright & patent infringement systems and concerns regarding mechanical properties & biocompatibility are the challenges that are hindering the global 3D printing in the healthcare market. Also, the lack of quality, regulatory frameworks for 3D printers and the inadequate technical knowledge about 3D printing technology in developing economies like India, China, etc., are considered as the restraints of the market.
