3D Printing in Medical Markets 2015: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast Featuring 15 Leading Printer Firms

DUBLIN, Feb. 24, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Research and Markets

( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xc7q95/3d_printing_in) has announced the addition of the "3D Printing in Medical Markets 2015: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast" report to their offering.


Revenues of materials for medical 3DP were almost $50 million in 2014 and are expected to reach $345 million by 2020. After 2020 revenues from 3D-printed medical materials will be larger that revenues from the printers themselves. The author's bullish forecast for materials is due to rapidly increasing print volumes for medical applications. Primary drivers for these increased volumes are medical models and orthopedic implants. Currently, most of the sales of 3DP materials for medical applications are photopolymers and metal powders.

For medical 3DP hardware, total revenues are split closely between North America and Europe. Even for applications serving patients in other regions, the majority of medical 3D print service providers are based in these regions. Nonetheless, China continues to invest heavily in 3D printing technology, and the author expects that Chinese medical 3DP products and services will be influential in other parts of the Asia Pacific. Revenues from medical 3DP are expected to approach $95 million by 2020 in this region.

In this report the author identifies the main opportunities for 3D printing in the medical environments. It identifies where money is being made through the current use of 3D printers in this area and shows where the revenue streams will be found in the future. It also identifies current technical weaknesses in 3D printing and where 3D printers, software and services must adapt to become a commercial success. As the table of contents below shows this report provides coverage of all the current medical applications for 3D printing, along with granular ten-year forecasts of 3D printing in the medical sector in both volume and revenue terms.

3D Printing in Medical Markets includes ten-year forecasts with breakouts by printer technology, materials type, and software expenditures. It also contains market analysis for a wide variety of medical applications including implants, surgical tools and guides, medical models, medical devices, and equipment prototyping. The report further discusses where 3D printing must adapt to meet the needs of medicine. Comprehensive profiles of medical related strategies of 15 leading 3D printer firms are included.
