The healthcare industry is proving to be an enthusiastic adopter of the 3D printing technology and the widespread use of this technology will lead to better treatment modalities and approaches, better materials, and eventually better lives for both the patient as well as the surgeon. Challenges such as low reimbursement rates, lack of clear regulatory framework, and issues related to cybersecurity and intellectual property need to be addressed for 3D printing to get into mass production.
"Healthcare is the third-largest consumer of 3D-printed products, behind consumer electronics and motor vehicles, accounting for 17 percent of the total market revenue," observed Sundar. "Market segments as dentistry, orthopedic reconstruction, orthopedic trauma, and prosthetics are best placed in the next 5 years. Over the next two to five years, markets such as corrective lenses, advanced wound care, and stents also show promising growth prospects. Bio-printing and organ transplants are interesting areas that hold significant potential but are subject to high levels of risk and long dated."
