It is predicted that the global 3D printing in medical applications market size will witness significant growth during the forecast period. Advanced research and development activities by the market players and rising popularity of customized 3D printed medical products are some notable factors driving the market demand. 3D printing is an advanced technology used to produce objects through fusing or depositing materials, such as metals, polymers, and ceramics in layers, resulting into 3D objects.
Geographically, North America leads the 3D printing in medical applications market and held the largest share in 2017, mainly on account of increased research and development (R&D) investment, focused on technological innovation. Europe is predicted to be the fastest growing regional market for 3D printing in medical applications, mainly due to the growing funding by private and public organizations.
Some of the factors driving the 3D printing in medical applications market are rising public and private funding, and time and cost effectiveness of 3D printing applications over traditional manufacturing processes. The funding by several private and public bodies provides opportunities to start-ups involved in 3D printing to advance their R&D activities and explore its further application in the medical field. For instance, in April 2018, Arigin Medical Co. Ltd., a Shanghai based start-up focused on providing complete medical 3D printing solutions in the field of orthopaedics, completed its series A investment round, securing tens of millions RMB in finance. The funding was led by Proxima Ventures, Dingxin Capital and Delta Capital.
