3D Medical Printing Market Trends



  • Rising incidence of osteoarthritis and related musculoskeletal disorders is driving the market growth


The increasing incidence of osteoarthritis and related musculoskeletal disorders is one of the main drivers driving the market for US 3D medical printing. Patients with osteoarthritis experience pain, stiffness, and a loss of joint function as a result of the disease, which damages the cartilage in the joints and the tissues around them. Surgeons can access important information that may not be accessible on a 2-dimensional scan by employing 3D printing technology to replicate a patient's joint. Osteoarthritis is more common as people get older. For instance, a survey from the U.S. National Library of Medicine predicts that by 2040, 78 million (or 26%) of adult Americans who are 18 years of age and older would have a formal diagnosis of arthritis. Therefore, encouraging the adoption of medical gadgets that are 3D printed and facilitating industry growth.


For those who are in need, organ transplantation is an essential and frequently life-saving action. It is now feasible to finish this process without depending on human donors because to developments in medical technology. The number of organ transplants performed worldwide in 2021 was 144.302, as reported by the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation. Organ transplant waiting lists included 104,234 men, women, and children as of 2022. Organ transplant recipients in the United States lose up to 17 lives every day as a result of the lack of resources and information surrounding organ donation. This yearly death toll exceeds 6,000. Furthermore, the lack of organ donors and the high rate of organ failure is restricting the growing need for transplantable organs; nevertheless, medical 3D printing holds promise to address these issues. The prevalence of organ failures has increased due to factors including heavy tobacco usage, sedentary lifestyles, accidents, and chronic diseases, which has further boosted the demand for organ transplantation. Thus, driving the 3D medical printing market revenue.
