New Reports Forecasts 3D Medical-Applications Market

(Research and Markets) Research and Markets has released its report: “3D Printing in Medical Applications Market — Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013-2019.” This report includes an estimation of the global market for applications of 3D printing in the healthcare segment in terms of value (USD million) for the period from 2013 to 2019, considering 2012 as the base year. In addition, current market trends and recent developments are taken into consideration while determining the growth rate of the global 3D printing medical-applications market.

Ever-increasing cost pressures on medical device manufacturers and their intense need to introduce innovative products has forced them to adopt 3D printing as a means to reduce the manufacturing life cycle and almost completely eliminate the traditional prototyping process. Traditional manufacturing techniques are based on the subtractive method, in which the required product is created by cutting or drilling the base material. Three-dimensional printing builds the desired products layer by layer through the addition of materials. Hence, this process is also called additive manufacturing.

Some of the significant players in this market include 3D Systems, Stratasys, EnvisionTEC, Arcam AB and Materialise NV. These market players have been profiled on the basis of attributes, such as company overview, recent developments, strategies adopted by the market leaders to ensure growth, sustainability, financial overview and recent developments.
