Emphasis of 3D & 4D Printing Technology to Boost Demand for Biocompatible Raw Materials

Currently, 3D and 4D printing technology is gaining traction to develop patient-specific implants and treatment-specific drugs. Adoption of 3D and 4D printing technology needs the development of smart materials. Hence, medical device manufacturers are preferring medical-grade polymers and biocompatible raw materials. Due to the safety and performance of medical grade polymers, these are used in implants, catheters, and surgical instruments, as well as in an array of medical devices. This will hold immense potential for the expansion of the biocompatible materials market size over the coming years. For instance, in April 2019, DuPont Transportation & Industrial showcased its new semi-crystalline materials at RAPID + TCT for 3D applications. These advanced semi-crystalline materials in RAPID + TCT 2019 are expected to boost the product segment of 3D printing.

Moreover, medical grade plastic provides radiolucency, which allows surgeons to have an unobstructed view. Durability and biocompatibility are crucial aspects of biocompatible materials used in the production of metal replacement and medical plastic products, which is a continuing trend in the medical space, and bodes well for the growth of the biocompatible materials market.

Growing Competition to Encourage Manufacturers to Develop Cost-effective Products

3D printing techniques have enabled start-ups to begin manufacturing at lower tooling costs, which makes it cheaper even at low volumes to serve niche market segments. Thus, many new entrants are able to sustain the competition from giant market players. New businesses are already popping up, offering collaboratively designed and highly customized products, as the direct manufacturing of end products reduces and simplifies work of a designer, as the designer only has to take products to commercial viability from a computer screen.

Increasing investments by companies for advanced product development that are non-toxic and non-immunogenic are also expected to create growth opportunities in the near future for the biocompatible materials market. Niche market players are expected to transform industries by moving ability of mass manufacturing at lower cost, ownership of customer networks, and designing away as a source of advantage

Innovative 3D Printer Launches

In the last few years, 3D & 4D printing technology has been widely preferred by the dentistry sector, to provide implants matching patient needs. 3D & 4D printing technology is also used in plastic surgeries and reconstructive surgeries. Therefore, 3D-printed medical device manufacturers are now focusing on the launch of 3D printers and devices as part of their broader manufacturing strategy, which is expected to provide opportunities for the biocompatible materials market in the near future. This revolutionary device feature combines best in class performance and speed at an affordable price point.

Moreover, polymers are significantly used in 3D & 4D printing technology, as well as in reconstructive surgeries. Hence, polymers hold a prominent share in the biocompatible materials market
