The three-dimensional (3D) medical implants are medical devices that offer aids in the medical reconstruction procedures of physical faults and abnormalities of the body. The 3D medical implants are commonly additively manufactured using 3D printers; which allow to develop complex geometry features and customized implants specific to the patients’ anatomy. The 3D medical implants technology integrates virtual computer-aided surgical planning and facilitating accurate and effective treatment of the complex malformations. Furthermore, the 3D medical implants have proved to be time saving and cost saving procedures as it does not involve multi-step surgical procedures or additional surgical tools. Over the years, 3D medical implants has undergone tremendous development and is widely used in the healthcare sector. To date, FDA has granted clearance for several 3D medical implants which includes hearing aids, dental crowns, bone tether plates, skull plates, hip cups, spinal cages, facial implants, knew trays, etc.
3D Medical Implants Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growth of 3D medical implants market is primarily driven by increase in geriatric population who are at high risk of diseases and disorders such as osteoarthritis, loss of hearing and others. In addition, rise in rate of accidents across the globe, leading to the need of medical implants is anticipated to fuel the 3D medical implants market. The increasing trend of end product customization owing to the low cost and less time consumption procedures, better fit, improved performance and just-in-time delivery leading to inventory reduction is expected to increase the demand of 3D medical implants market. Furthermore, the increasing FDA approvals and wider acceptance of 3D medical implants is expected to boost the 3D medical implants market growth. However, the lack of skilled profession and less awareness among the people in undeveloped economies is expected to sluggish growth of this market. In addition, the significant time required for production of customized implants have limited the use of 3D medical implants in case of emergency trauma surgeries is anticipated to hinder the 3D medical implants market. Moreover, the stringent government regulations, issuance issues, reimbursement issues and high prices of 3D medical implants can also deter the growth of 3D medical implants market. Ongoing research and development associated with the 3D medical implants is expected to create new opportunities in the forecast period. To step up the research and development, the American National Institute of Health (NIH) has created the NIH 3D Print Exchange Internet Website, which enables open, comprehensive and interactive access for searching, browsing, downloading, and sharing biomedical 3D print files, modeling tutorials, and educational material.
