Based on technology, the medical device additive manufacturing market is segmented into laser sintering, stereolithography, electron beam melting, and extrusion. In 2019, the laser-sintering segment accounted for the highest share of the market. The market growth of this segment is attributed to the fact that there is no need to provide support structures for fragile and thin parts of devices, unlike the devices produced with the use of stereolithography. Further, high precision in geometries achieved by laser sintering is not possible with any other technology; thus, the market for this segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the 2020–2027.
The healthcare sector has been witnessing rapid transformation since the last few years. Various technological advancements in the sector include the customization of medical devices, use of computing technologies to design medical devices, and restructuring the core build-up of these devices through technologies such as CAD-CAM and 3D printing. With a need for better healthcare facilities, technology-enabled care (TEC) solutions are being preferred in the healthcare systems in the emerging economies. The increase in elderly population, rise in incidence of chronic illnesses, and escalating need for pediatric care are the primary factors driving the growth of healthcare sector. Various established players in this sector have been investing significant amounts of their revenue in research and development activities for the development of better and advanced products as well as technologies. Also, the availability of reimbursement for various medical procedures is contributing to the growth of the sector.
Medical device companies in the world are investing in the expansion of their capabilities and operations. Leading market players such as Medtronic; Stryker; BD; and Baxter International, Inc. are investing significant percentage of their annual incomes in the development of their manufacturing capabilities by incorporating advanced technologies such as additive manufacturing in the overall processes. Thus, the potential advancements in the global healthcare sector provide significant opportunities to the medical device additive manufacturing market players to secure growth during the forecast period.
The COVID-19 outbreak was first reported in December 2019 in Wuhan (China), and with its spread to ~100 countries across the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) termed it a pandemic with public health emergency. In North America, the US has been profoundly affected by the outbreak. For instance, California-based Airwolf3D Company has proposed its fleet of 3D printers for the manufacturing of respirator valves and custom medical components. The company is also contributing remote technical support for medical staff that would be willing to know more about 3D printing. The use of 3D printing and additive manufacturing for the development of medical supplies and instruments in emergency is likely to be a prime opportunity for the market players.
3D Systems, Inc., GE Additives,Materialise NV, 3T Additive Manufacturing Limited, Renishawplc, Stratasys Ltd, Vaupell, Inc.,Precision ADM Inc, EOS GmbH, and Allevi, Inc. are among the leading companies operating in the medical device additive manufacturing market.
Increasing Demand for Additive Manufacturing in Healthcare
Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, holds great potential to transform the conventional process of manufacturing of medical products and components. Additive manufacturing allows companies to provide extensive customization based on the individual patient requirements for medical applications. This helps save time and efforts by allowing the manufacturing of medical devices and implants that are ideal fit for patient’s needs. The technique helps overcome the constraints of traditional manufacturing methods—mainly associated with the mass customization; fabrication; milling, casting, and forging; and so on.
Additive manufacturing is majorly beneficial in medical fields such as production of new orthopedic products, fabrication of customized maxillofacial prostheses, and casting of dental implants. Further, it is also receiving attention as a method used in biomedical modeling and organ printing. The increase in demand for additive manufacturing has encouraged medical device manufacturing companies to invest significantly in the development of commercial models and reduction of the cost of modeling. Leading medical device market players have uniquely positioned themselves to benefit from the advances offered by additive manufacturing. For instance, in May 2018, Medtronic announced development of the TiONIC Technology, which is a new 3D printed technique that helps tobuild enhanced surface techniques for designing of medical devices. Further, axial3D, a company developing automated 3D printing solutions for healthcare sector, announced the completion of a funding round for raising US$ 3 million in funds to expand its operations in the US. Thus, the increasing demand for the additive manufacturing technology in healthcare, leading to rising investments by market players for its advancement, fuels the growth of the medical device additive manufacturing market.
