SmarTech believes that 3D-printing technology is creating an entire category of medical solutions, which SmarTech refers to as “3D Print-enabled Medical Technologies. These combine 3D printing with medical imaging and 3D digital design to produce an extremely powerful new area of medical solutions where the sum is truly greater than the whole of its parts.

About the Report:

SmarTech’s “Additive Manufacturing Evolution in Healthcare” shows how this new medical modality is evolving commercially and how best to take advantage of this opportunity.  It includes:

  • SmarTech’s latest ten-year forecasts for 3D printing in the medical sector, with breakouts by printer technology, materials type, and software expenditures.
  • Market analysis for a wide variety of medical applications including implants, surgical tools, guides, medical models, medical devices and equipment prototypes, and more.
  • A discussion of the current technical weaknesses in 3D printing for medical applications and where 3D printers, software and services must adapt to become a commercial success in the healthcare industry.
  • An assessment of the medical related strategies of 15 leading 3D printer firms that have made medical markets a critical part of their product offerings and market direction.

Not all medical applications for 3D printing hold realistic long-term adoption potential and a major goal of this report is to discern winners and losers.  In order to carry out this important analysis SmarTech has categorized the uses of 3D printing in the medical industry into four groups: Direct Patient Use Parts, Medical Professional Assistance Parts, Medical Manufacturing Parts, Biomedical Research Parts

Medical imaging technologies, and three-dimensional modeling software, have existed for decades; it has been 3D print technology that has really enabled the powerful combination of all three.  Showing how we expect this powerful combination of technologies to generate new business revenues, this report, builds on SmarTech‘s extensive in-house knowledge in the “additive medicine” as well as interviews with other industry insiders.

SmarTech believes that this report will provide invaluable guidance for 3D-printing equipment and software companies, service providers, specialty chemical firms and medical equipment firms.  We also think that it will prove to be required reading for investors in the 3D-printing business as a whole.
