3D printing is a manufacturing process that builds layers to create a three-dimensional solid object from a digital model. First, it takes graphical data input from the computer, which is often created using a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) tool, and cuts the data to accommodate separate object layers or components. It helps the surgeons to plan surgeries and there by reduces operative risks in complex surgeries. The segmented/layered graphical data is sent to the 3D printer, which applies the required combination of raw material for that particular layer. 3D bioprinting is used in regenerative medicine to address the need for tissues and organs suitable for transplantation.

Market overview: Global 3D Printing devices market was valued at $.... million in 2018, and is estimated to reach at $... million by 2025, registering a CAGR of ….% from 2018 to 2026. The global 3D printing devices market is segmented based on the technology, application, end user, and geography. The research and development initiatives by the U.S government and major players of 3D printing medical devices are located in this region thus creating opportunities for this market.

Technology: Photo Polymerization, Droplet deposition, Laser beam melting, Electronic Beam Melting, Laminated Object Manufacturing, Wax Deposition Modeling, Bio Printing

A various variety of 3D printers are available in the market based on different technologies. Photo Polymerization, selective laser sintering, laminated object manufacturing, and electron beam melting are some of the technologies used for 3D printing. electronic beam melting printers accounted for a major share in the North American 3D printing market, constituting 33.2% of the total market revenue in 2015. The use of these printers for designing models and molding patterns has increased owing to its high accuracy and better surface finish. Stereolithography is an additive manufacturing technology that implements layer-by-layer production technique using photopolymerization for the development of prototypes and functional models. Electron beam melting technology-based 3D printers are likely to give the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2026.
