Key Market Trends

Metals and Alloy Segment is Expected to Grow with High CAGR in the Forecasted Period

For any 3D-printed device to implant/other medical uses, biocompatibility is of utmost importance. Any material used must comply with surface chemistry, surface topography, and other parameters that drive biological response to the implanted device. Titanium alloy and pure titanium are the most-preferred and biocompatible metallic materials for a biomedical implant. Titanium alloy, like Ti6Al4V, improves strength and has resistance to corrosion. However, it is important to consider that the high elastic modulus in titanium causes an elastic mismatch between the bones and the implant. On the whole, titanium is one of the most adopted metals for 3D printing for medical applications. The titanium or titanium-alloy-based segment of the market studied is expected to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. With advancements in technology, the 3D printing titanium sub-segment is expected to revolutionize medical device manufacturers over the forecast period.  However, 3D-printed devices require software and material specifications that are more stringent than the specifications of the other traditional medical devices. These factors are expected to provide steady and consistent growth to companies and overall business, over the forecast period.
