Technological advancements such as personalized plasters, bioprinting of cells, tissues and organs, and 3D printed medications will boost demand of healthcare 3D printing devices.  For instance, in 2017, 3D printed vaccines were discovered to deliver multiple doses of vaccines into the patient’s system on a specific time, thus eliminating the multiple visits to the doctor.

High cost of 3D printing devices and irregular reimbursement policies reduces the sales. Additionally, concerns regarding biocompatibility of 3D printed medical devices and dearth of skilled professionals may hamper the industry growth.

Syringe based 3D printing is estimated to account for largest revenue due its efficiency to print fluids using nozzle, enabling the printing of complex shapes/objects. Syringe pump extruder offers various applications including embedded printing, bioprinting and food printing that will ease its usage and flexibility. This should drive segment growth over the forecast period.

FDM offers features such as rapid speed, accuracy, easiness, limited design restrictions and automatic scaling, that has increased its adoption rate. Fused deposition modeling (FDM) will experience a significant growth owing to their application in medical device customization, dental clinics and hospitals.

Medical application is projected to dominate the revenue share due to its increasing use in 3D printing of various organs. Application of 3D printing in medicine can confer various benefits such as personalization and customization of medical products, drugs, and equipment, cost-effectiveness and increased productivity. 3D printed prosthetic is trending, and its demand is predicted to further increase over forecast timeframe.
