Global 3D Printing in Healthcare Market to Reach US$ 9.4 Billion by 2032, Facilitated by Rising Preferences for Customized Medical Products

February 28, 2023 | Healthcare

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “3D Printing in Healthcare Market Report by Material (Polymer, Metals, Ceramic, Organic),Technology (Droplet Deposition, Photopolymerization, Laser Beam Melting, Electronic Beam Melting (EBM), Laminated Object Manufacturing, and Others), Application (External Wearable Devices, Clinical Study Devices, Implants, Tissue Engineering), End User (Medical and Surgical Centers, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies, Academic Institutions), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global 3D printing in healthcare market size reached US$ 3.0 Billion in 2023. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, refers to the process of making solid three-dimensional objects. It is commonly used in the healthcare sector to create new surgical cutting drill guides, prosthetics, and patient-specific replicas of bones, organs, and blood vessels. It facilitates the customization and personalization of medical products, drugs, and equipment and assists in producing living human cells or tissue in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. It helps minimize operative risks involved during complex medical procedures, lowers the chances of infections, and reduces the duration of anesthesia exposure. It also aids in saving time, decreasing costs, and enabling faster and more effective delivery of medical services. As a result, 3D printing in healthcare has gained immense traction across the globe for manufacturing customized prosthetics, implants, and other wearable devices.

Global 3D Printing in Healthcare Market Trends:

The rising preferences for customized medical products and the surging popularity of precision medicine represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the increasing incidences of chronic diseases, such as cancer and respiratory and cardiovascular disorders (CVDs), are other major growth-inducing factors. Additionally, there is a rise in the use of 3D printing in liver modeling and the development of tissue, bone, and medical implants. In line with this, the escalating demand for regenerative medicines, stem cell solutions, and cancer therapeutics has catalyzed market growth. Apart from this, the growing usage of technologically advanced products for patient monitoring and disease management to improve patient care quality and reduce the cost of care has augmented the demand for 3D printing in healthcare. Furthermore, the rising public and private funding to expand 3D printing manufacturing capabilities have propelled the market growth. Along with this, continual technological advancements in 3D printers and heavy investments in aggressive promotional activities and marketing campaigns by key players are contributing to market growth. Other factors, including the expanding geriatric population, increasing biomedical and pharmaceutical applications, easy availability of bioprinting tissues and organs, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 9.4 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 13.2% during 2024-2032.
