How far 3D printing will be used by medical professionals?

The use of 3D printing by medical professionals is considered as one of the major trends of the market’s growth. In its latest report, research advisory company Technavio has analyzed this segment and estimates its growth at a CAGR of more than 23% during the period 2019-2023.

This growth results from the increasing use of 3D printing medical devices that are considered more efficient than other competitive systems. Furthermore, the more professionals carry out projects, the more they will need appropriate materials that will help them to improve existing techniques.

It goes without saying that medical innovations based on 3D printing technology are also portrayed in media. As a matter of fact, every week, at least one research or one medical innovation is unveiled in our media.

At a technical level…

The research firm explained that, with 3D virtual pre-surgical planning, the positioning of the implant is done within a stable reference frame, linked to the entire scapula, using reliable landmarks that are no subjected to the case and specific wear patterns. Also, 3D printing technology is used in 3D printed anatomical models which are then used as training tools as they help clinicians to practice on the exact replica of the patient’s organ or body part, improving their rate of success.

In this report, Technavio provides market segmentation by the application (orthopedic and spinal, dental, hearing aids and other applications) and by region (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC). It provides an in-depth analysis of the prominent factors influencing the market, including drivers, opportunities, trends, and industry-specific challenges.
