Global 3D-Printed Medical Prosthetics Markets 2015-2020

Revenues From 3D-Printed Prosthetics, Orthotics and Ophthalmic Applications Are Expected to Reach $310 Million

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - April 05, 2016) -  Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D-Printed Medical Prosthetics Markets" report to their offering.

3D-printed prosthetics has served as the poster boy for 3D printing in medicine for quite some time. Started by grass roots movements to provide functional hands to young amputees, the segment is quickly burgeoning into commercial significance through expanding applications in other prostheses types. The author also sees significant growing value in the closely related areas of printed orthotic devices for posture correction, fracture healing, and also includes niche medical markets for vision correction and hearing aids into one report.

In this report we discuss the reality of value creation and market strategies in the 3D-printed prosthetics space, with coverage of the expanding areas of lower extremity prosthetics, orthotics, and ophthalmic applications in 3D printing.

3D-printed prosthetics has often served as the poster boy for 3D printing, with (say) a 3D-printed hand serving to illustrate the wonderful things that can be achieved using 3D printing, however the capabilities of 3D printing in prosthetics are extending beyond just these often highlighted applications today.

In this report we forecast the future of 3D-printed medical prosthetics and orthotics, including how the supply chain is emerging in this space. Both volume and value forecasts are included. Exploration of the capabilities of printing into lower extremity prosthetics, medical braces for skeletal system treatments, printed insoles, and other similar applications are included.
