Given the growing predominance of 3D printing in healthcare, it is important to observe the leading trends to see how our healthcare market is shifting.

By component type, the system segment generated 51% revenue share in 2022. However, the materials segment is registering growth at a CAGR of 21.3% over the forecast period. As the user base of systems gets established, ongoing material purchasing will grow in importance. By technology type, the droplet deposition segment led with a 29% revenue share in 2022.

By application, the external wearable devices segment accounted for 38.7% market share in 2022. By end user, the medical & surgical centers segment exhibited a revenue share of around 45% in 2022. In addition, the academic institutions segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 21.6% between 2023 to 2032.

By region, North America garnered the highest revenue share 43% in 2022, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 19.5% from 2023 to 2032. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.8% over the forecast period 2023 to 2032.

Making same-day devices (we would say even same-appointment) while the patient is in the office is becoming a much more achievable goal for the future of medical 3D printing. Additive manufacturing on demand is a great cost-saving approach in terms of time and materials. The end products still qualify for insurance reimbursement. Most importantly, the customization inherent in 3D printing provides a better product to the patient and an overall healthier outcome.
