The Global 3D Printing for Medical Sector Market is projected to reach US$ 1,109.2 million by 2024 experiencing market growth at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2016 to 2024, according to a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. 3D printing has revolutionized the way medical procedures are performed, medical training is provided, and cost-effective medical products are being developed. Improved clinical outcomes is attracting the medical community to explore various avenue of 3D printing in the medical sector.
3D printing has been around since 1984. However, until recent advancements in technology which attracted people’s attention, 3D printing also gained traction for applications in healthcare. This includes development of surgical implants, biological prototypes, artificial organs, and dental implants. Innovation in 3D printing technology is expected to drive down healthcare costs much lower than current levels and increase medical product accessibility. Also, increasing demand for personalized medicines, and reduction in manufacturing cost and time would propel demand for 3D printed medical products in the near future. Wiiv—a Vancouver-based startup—uses 3D printing technology to create customized insoles for patients suffering from joint discomfort, plantar fasciitis pain, and general foot fatigue.

Conventional printing process include major input costs, time, high amount of waste, and high error rate. 3D printing involves layer by layer printing, which eliminates waste generation and allows error-free process. Furthermore, the polygel technology enables producing product or device in desired color utilizing different materials.
In recent past, 3D printing has gained significant traction in the dental and orthopedic implant segments. However, reimbursement for dental procedures in the U.S is inadequate. Therefore, integration of 3D printing technology for dental implants is expected to lower the cost of dental procedures, in turn making it more affordable and accessible to patients from low and middle income economies.
3D printing of in healthcare sector is done using technologies such as electron beam melting, laser beam melting, photo polymerization, droplet deposition, and laminated object manufacturing. However, clarity on regulatory aspects on manufacturing and approval process of 3D printed products is major factor restraining growth of the market. 3D printing enables pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers to focus on development of innovative healthcare products at low costs without compromising on profit margins.
However, high cost for instillation of the machine to achieve desired operational efficiency is hampering growth of the market. Moreover, lack of trained professionals for handling the equipment is also restraining market growth. Key players in the market are focused on developing cost effective products by investing major amount of for research and development related to 3D printing.
