Global 3D Printing– Revolutionizing the Healthcare Industry

3D printing is revolutionizing the healthcare industry by providing improved therapy outcomes and affordable medical devices. This technology is enabling manufacturers to produce small and delicate parts of an organ or medical device with a high accuracy, which is a very cumbersome task using current manufacturing capabilities. Companies such as EnvisionTEC, Inc., 3D Systems, Inc., Stratasys Inc., Materialise NV, and Organovo Holdings, Inc. are collaborating with each other or independent research organizations and institutes to speed-up the research activities in order to decrease the time to market (TTM).

3D printing offers various benefits such as pre-operative planning of medical procedures based on the 3D model, creating anatomical models for training, creating medical products at lower costs, and possibility of manufacturing medical devices of smaller form factors with higher precision. Increasing awareness about cost benefits offered by this technology has increased its usage in hospitals, dentists, pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, and medical clinics is propelling the market growth for 3D printing.

This report segments the global 3D printing for medical sector market on the basis of technology, application, and end user. On the basis of technology, the global 3D printing market is classified into electron beam melting, laser beam melting, droplet deposition and photopolymerization. Applications of 3D printing include tissue engineering, surgical implants, healthcare research and development (R&D), and others. 3D Printing technology is used for medical applications across pharmaceuticals and biotech companies, medical devices companies and academic and research institutions.

A plethora of medical applications 3D printing technology is primarily used to create artificial skin, kidney, liver, pancreas, pills, and orthopedic and dental implants. The current manufacturing capabilities are not adequate to produce artificial organs with precise shape and size of miniature organ parts. Biological models made from 3D printing technology can help in surgical training, planning, and offering personalized medicines, thus enhancing quality of life of the user. While the use of 3D printing is widely implemented in dental applications, other medical segments such as tissues, prosthetics, medicines and heart valves, medical equipment and synthetic skin are also expected to deploy 3D printing technology to a greater extent in the near future.

Different raw materials cater to different 3D printing demands

3D printing technology uses numerous materials such as the metals, ceramics, polymers, and biological cells for printing skin, organs, and medical devices. Metal printing is widely used in prosthetics and implants. Biological cells are widely used in skin and tissue printing. In 2014, L’Oreal S.A. announced partnership with Organovo Holdings, Inc. to 3D-print human skin. Organovo printed the first blood vessel in 2009 and is in the process of developing 3D-printed tissues through strategic partnerships with biopharmaceutical companies.
