Future Market Insights (FMI) presents pertinent insights and a revised forecast of the global 3D-printed medical devices market in its published report titled ‘3D Printed Medical Devices Market”: Global Industry Analysis (2012-2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017-2027)’.
The global 3D-printed medical devices market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.1% during the 2017–2027 forecast period.
Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising awareness regarding personal care are major factors that are driving the growth of the 3D-printed medical devices market.
Increased ability to innovate aids the global 3D-printed medical devices market
With an increasing popularity of 3D printing, medical devices manufacturers are particularly focused on innovations.
3D printing meets a need for individualised but economical medical solutions. Hard and soft areas, solid and porous structures, multi-material and multi-colour sections that are difficult-to-implement in conventional manufacturing techniques are made simple using 3D printing.
In addition, patient-specific implants are being manufactured based on computerised tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, which results in a reduction of the overall cost of surgery. This has increased the popularity of 3D-printed medical devices worldwide.
