3D Printed Medical Devices Market size in terms of volume and value 2016-2026

3D printing is also known as additive manufacturing which is the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. 3D printing is the next-generation customization. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved by using additive processes. In an additive process, an object is made by adding successive layers of material until the entire object is created. Each of these layers are thinly sliced horizontal cross-sections of the final object. Bio-printing is the process of using 3D printing technology by biotech firms and research institutions to create artificial organs and body parts using inkjet techniques. Layers of living cells are deposited onto a gel medium and slowly built up to form a three dimensional structure of the desired organ.

3D Printed Medical Devices Market:  Drivers & Restraints                    

3D printing technology is a manufacturing revolution. The outlook of 3D printing of medical devices is evolving at an extremely rapid pace as the adoption among the medical communities across the globe is increasing. Patients worldwide are experiencing improved quality of care through 3D printed implants and prosthetics. The major restraint in the market is that medical devices have stringent regulations and the adoption of 3D printing technology in medical devices is governed by the rigorous verification and validation of designs and processes which are designed with particular consideration of mechanical and thermal properties, and biocompatibility.
