This report explores the revenue potential for 3D printed medical implant markets including a discussion of the latest trends and their commercial implications. Printed implants of standard sizings in hip markets are approaching significant volumes, with more implant types now beginning to reach critical minimum real world trial length to be determined medically successful.

SmarTech thinks that these early trials have paved the way for more common orthopedic and medical implant procedures to achieve widespread commercial success in the future, with applications expanding rapidly into knee, spinal, shoulder, and other implants to serve specialty cases where traditional treatments would fail.

In this report we take a look at how this market is evolving, and where the money will be made.  The report includes ten-year forecasts of the medical implant market in both volume and value terms, as well as a discussion how major medical device firms and materials firms are preparing for the growth in 3D printed implants.
