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

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. This study provides:

  • Complete coverage of the worldwide additive orthopedic implants market including craniomaxillofacial, hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, thoracic/spine, and custom implants in both metal and non-metal materials
  • A comprehensive analysis of the developments in the materials used for additively produced orthopedic implants.  This includes a discussion of biodegradable and lightweight reinforced polymers
  • A detailed ten-year market forecast of opportunities in AM hardware and material sales for printed orthopedic implants and devices, including breakouts by technology, material group, and implant type.  These forecasts are provided in both volume and value terms
  • Analysis and ten-year projections of secondary opportunities for additive orthopedics including specialty print services and software
  • Profiles of the marketing and business development activities at the market leaders in the additive implant space as well as the most innovative companies in the field
     

As we see it, additive manufacturing represents the only true path to economic viability and production feasibility for implants designed and shaped to a specific patient with unique trauma, degenerative disease, or birth defects. Indeed, additive manufacturing will be a key piece of the holy grail of orthopedic (and other medical) care, in which physical solutions are tailored to the exact needs of an individual patient. 

This study identifies where the money will be made and lost as these trends play out.  It will be vital reading not only for executives in the 3D printing/additive manufacturing space, but also for marketing and product managers at companies in the medical materials, medical device and healthcare industries.

Opportunities for Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace 2017 - Civil Aviation:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

Manufacturing of civil aircraft – that is planes for commercial and general aviation – has already emerged as the first industry sector where 3D printing is an established manufacturing modality. We continue to see important new opportunities emerge in this area in both metal AM and the polymer AM (metal replacement and composite).  This report identifies and quantifies the business potential of these new trends. The report includes:

  • Detailed ten-year forecasts of the revenue generation potential for additive manufacturing in the civil aviation sector.  These forecasts are presented in both volume and value ($ Millions) terms and cover printer shipments and install base, revenues from specialist aerospace service bureaus, aerospace-related AM software, and materials (metals, polymers and composites).
  • A strategic assessment of the leading firms supplying the “additive aerospace” sector.  In this assessment, we also take into consideration the commercial impact of the rapidly growing number of companies that are targeting aerospace firms as potential customers.
  • An analysis of how this segment of the aerospace industry is changing its strategies and adoption patterns for metal AM and is exploiting the increases in speed, part size and process automation that have occurred in the last few years.
  • A discussion of how the absence an appropriate software infrastructure for “additive aerospace” was impacting the market and how significant investments made in this area are going to lead to a much more rapid adoption of the technology. Here there appears to be an opportunity to market new software packages to fully support all phases the AM process, from CAD to PLM to enterprise infrastructure.”


The aerospace segment has seen larger than ever before investments in AM hardware and materials and these trends continue to indicate that the market for AM in commercial and general aviation is still only at the very beginning of its potential growth curve.

This report is based on extensive interviews in the “additive aerospace” sector as well as on SmarTech’s extensive database of information and proprietary market forecasts in this space.  The report will be highly valuable to marketing, business development and production executives at 3D printer makers, AM material companies, specialist service bureau, as well as within the aerospace industry itself.

Bioprinting Markets: Materials, Equipment and Applications – 2017 to 2027:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

Bioprinting Markets: Materials, Equipment and Applications – 2017 to 2027:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

SmarTech believes that the potential for the bioprinting sector has increased considerably in the past couple of years.  What we are seeing is that (1) bioprinters themselves have technologically matured and (2) they have also become more accessible in terms of cost to a wider target of users -- low-cost desktop bioprinters are available at below $20,000.

Meanwhile, bioprinting is experiencing a rapid transformation from basic research in academic laboratories to an emerging industry due to its near-term potential in areas such as drug discovery, personalized medicine, regenerative medicine, cosmetics testing, medical devices and food manufacturing. While printing complete organs still seems a long way off, revenues from bioprinting are already being generated from these more immediate applications.

SmarTech’s analysis suggests that by 2027, bioprinting applications will generate over $1 billion in revenue, accompanied by a healthy market in specialist bioprinting hardware and materials. 
 
This report explores the commercial implications of bioprinting in depth and includes:
  • Ten-year forecasts of bioprinting materials, hardware and applications markets. Materials are broken out by type and forecasted hardware is presented by both unit sales and in revenue terms, with breakouts by process technology and price point.  Revenues for bioprinting applications are segmented by the type of application – specifically, drug discovery, cosmetics testing, medical devices and tissue regeneration.
  • Highly granular information about current pricing of both bioprinters and printing materials for bioprinting applications.  In addition, the report provides detailed information on which companies and institutions are using bioprinters today and which printers they are using.
  • An assessment of the product/market strategies of emerging and established firms in the bioprinting space.  While many of the firms pioneering this space are well-funded and innovative start-ups, bioprinting is also attracting the attention of some of the largest multinationals in big pharma and cosmetics, for example.  Astellas Pharma, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Merck, Novartis, Procter and Gamble, Roche and others all have bioprinting programs, as do some of the large research facilities in the world, such as the National Institutes of Health in the US.  Meanwhile, bioprinting continues to be a favorite target of venture capital firms.
  • A full discussion of the latest developments in droplet and extrusion bio printer and what they mean both technically and from a business perspective.  Also included is an analysis of the very diverse market for bioprinted materials.  Emerging bioinks, include combinations of polymers, ceramics, cells, cell aggregates, peptides, growth factors, hydrogels, scaffold components, and other materials.
SmarTech believes that this report will become required reading for marketing and business development executives in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, consumer products, cosmetics, specialty chemical and other industries as well as those in the 3D printing/bioprinting sector itself.  This report will also be considerable value to members of the investment community who are increasingly appraising opportunities in the bioprinting space.

3D Printing Opportunities in the Jewelry Industry 2017:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

3D Printing Opportunities in the Jewelry Industry 2017:  An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast

3D printing finds is finding its way into just about every aspect of jewelry manufacturing, due to the widespread adoption of CAD software among jewelry designers.  Annual revenues from 3D-printed hardware, materials, services and software used in the jewelry industry is expected to top $900 Million in 2026.  Even in traditional jewelry manufacturing with vulcanized silicon molds, the initial model is often 3D printed using high-temperature resistant photopolymer resins. Jewelry prototyping for size and shape verification is complemented by the use of directly 3D printed wax and resin patterns for direct casting and serial manufacturing. The next evolutionary step is direct metal 3D printing.

This new 150-page report identifies the opportunities in this sector and is based on SmarTech Publishing’s ongoing coverage of the jewelry and precious metals markets. This report provides detailed ten-year jewelry manufacturing forecasts for additive manufacturing in volume (Kg) and value ($US) terms.  Forecasts cover:

  • Hardware and technologies (both photopolymerization and metal powder bed fusion based)
  • Materials (both photopolymers and precious metal powders)
  • Jewelry-specific 3D printing service bureaus
  • Jewelry-specific CAD software
     

Other features of this report include:

  • Detailed profiles of the leading providers of technologies and materials for jewelry AM. These profiles include Stratasys (Solidscape), 3D Systems, EnvisionTEC, EOS, Concept Laser, Sisma, ReaLizer as well as precious metal powder providers such as Cooksongold, Legor, Progold and Hildebrand.
  • Analysis of future adoption patterns of 3D printing technology for current to medium and long-term jewelry applications.
  • Assessment of pricing schemes for all currently available jewelry 3D printing technologies, systems and materials.  Today those technologies are evolving with the introduction of low-cost systems (sub $5,000) and high productivity (continuous DLP) systems, opening up the door to a new phase of growth and more widespread adoption for serial production of more complex and customized products.
     

This study pinpoints the opportunities for stakeholders jewelry additive manufacturing – from manufacturers of AM systems with a specific competency for castable materials, to suppliers of gold, platinum, silver and other precious metal alloy metal powders optimized for AM systems, to adopters of AM focusing on the many applications for the jewelry sector.
