Market Insights

High Occurrence of Dental and Orthopedic Diseases Drive 3D Printing Medical Devices Market Growth during Forecast Period

The use of 3D printing technology has gained prominence in the field of implantable medical devices in recent decades due to its high accuracy and precision, and optimum material utilization abilities. The specialty that can benefit the most from the advantages of these tools is dental, orthopedic surgery and traumatology. 3D printing technology can create implantable medical devices of any shape, simple or complex, without being affected by processing issues. It can solve the problems associated with the design and manufacturing of complex implantable medical devices. The 3D printing technique can also be used to produce personalized and customized implantable medical devices.

Tooth decay is the second most common dental issue in the world. The prevalence of orthodontic problem is common in both males and females, with minor differences based on gender. The possibility of individualized products, savings on small-scale productions, simplified sharing and processing of patient image data, and upgrades in education are the forces driving advancements in 3D printing for medicine and dentistry applications.  

Increasing Applications of 3D Printing in Healthcare Sector Contributes Significantly to 3D Printing Medical Devices Market Growth

3D printers are used to manufacture a variety of medical devices, including those with complex geometry or features that match a patient’s unique anatomy. A few devices are printed from a standard design, and then multiple identical copies of the same device are made. Other devices, called patient-matched or patient-specific devices, are created from the patient-specific imaging data. The choice of technology used for 3D printing depends on many factors, including the intended use of printed products and the simplicity of the printer, among others. Powder bed fusion is the most common technology used for the 3D printing of medical devices. This technique is compatible with various materials used in medical devices, such as titanium and nylon. With 3D printing, creating patient-specific, tactile reference models from CT and MRI scans is both affordable and simple. These models provide an additional perspective that helps physicians better prepare for surgeries, resulting in drastically reduced time and cost of an actual procedure performed within an operating room. This may benefit patients through greater satisfaction, lowered anxiety, and shortened recovery time. In addition to this, the launch of new biocompatible medical 3D printing materials helps in the development of new surgical tools and techniques with the ultimate goal of improving the clinical experience during surgery. The tools that can be printed using 3D printing techniques include sterilizable fixation trays, contouring templates, and implant sizing models, which can be used to size implants in the operating room before the first cut, allowing surgeons to save time and improve accuracy during complex procedures.
