Dental Segment to Lead the Demand 

“3D printed dental products are expected to capture the largest market share during the forecast period,” a lead analyst at Fortune Business Insights states. “This segment will be closely followed orthopedic and cardiovascular products. Combination of all three segments will fuel the global 3D printing medical devices market till 2026,” adds the analyst.

North America to Dominate the Market 

Being home to some of the most innovative companies involved in 3D printing technologies, North America is expected to have a significant market share in the global 3D printing medical devices market. Moreover, factors such as rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, a steadily aging population, and rapid technological advancements in 3D printing in medical field will keep North America in the lead. The global 3D printing medical devices market will get boosted as a result.

Market Growth Expected to be Restrained

3D printing technology comes with its share of disadvantages. One of its biggest restraining factors is the high cost of 3D printed medical products such as implants and devices. Therefore, for the global 3D printing medical devices market to grow at a faster pace, 3D printed medical products need to become more cost-effective for patients. Since it’s a relatively new technology, there is limited technical expertise to operate and maintain 3D printers. 3D printers are also not easily available in developing countries. Lastly, 3D printers in any field are not environment friendly as building ending products requires plastic. This can have a negative impact on the growth and development of the global 3D printing medical devices market in the forecast period.
