Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Medical Devices – Prosthetics, Orthotics, and Audiology:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

As the medical 3D printing segment continues to evolve in ways which set it apart from the rest of the rapid prototyping and industrial additive manufacturing markets, interest in apply various technologies into the fabrication of medical devices has grown significantly. On the success of the orthopedic implants, surgical guide, and dental segments, now other medical practice areas have begun exploring digital manufacturing processes as a means to improve efficiency, and build a global supply chain to patients in need.

Prosthetic devices are the third major area of exploration for 3D printing technologies in medicine today, marked by two distinctly different medical treatment areas -audiology and the orthotics & prosthetics (O&P) markets. Such externally applied devices now being made with 3D printing technologies include hearing aids, upper and lower extremity prosthetics and componentry, and orthotic insoles and braces.

Where orthotic and prosthetic devices are just emerging as an area of interest and commercial opportunity with strong growth potential, the use of 3D printing in hearing aids has been long established. The outlook and market analysis in each area is therefore compared and contrasted, including an up-to-date outlook for continued growth opportunities for 3D printing in the hearing aid segment which has often incorrectly been written off as totally saturated.

Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Personalized Surgery 2017 - Medical Modeling and Surgical Guides:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

3D printing technology has been a major revolution in the field of medicine primarily for its ability to much more effectively and easily create objects of a complex and detailed geometry with no significant additional cost concerns from one object to the next. Combined with medical imaging systems and digital conversion software, 3D printing has grown to become a critical tool for advancing personalized care in both medical and dental markets.    

Through the past two decades, 3D printing technology has been applied to surgical practice to redefine the concept of personalized surgery in the production of realistic anatomical models and single use surgical cutting, pinning, and drilling guides based on real patient data. Today, the combination of these and other personal 3D printed devices are reducing surgical times and associated costs, while improving the outcome for patients.

Additive Orthopedics: Markets for 3D-Printed Medical Implants - 2017

In the past decade, the orthopedic implant industry has been quietly revolutionized through the use of additive manufacturing. Today, the penetration rate of additive production of standard-sized implants is expanding rapidly.  In the future SmarTech believes the majority of implants will be produced additively, creating a new revenue stream for printers and materials as well as new opportunities in the healthcare business itself.

This AM expansion is impacting the entire implant sector including spinal, hip, knee, and other types of implants.  And successful case studies of additively made implants have further fueled the role of 3D printing in true patient-specific devices. This SmarTech report is the only worldwide market analysis specific to additive orthopedics.
