Meticulous Research® Forecasts Medical 3D Printing Market to Reach $9.6 Billion by 2030

The medical 3D printing market is projected to reach $9.6 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 18.3% during the forecast period.

According to a recent report by Meticulous Research®, the global medical 3D printing market is expected to achieve a remarkable valuation of $9.6 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.3% over the forecast period. This growth is propelled by rapid technological advancements, the rising prevalence of dental and orthopedic diseases, the expansion of healthcare infrastructure, and an increasing number of surgical procedures.

Despite the promising growth, the market faces challenges such as the high costs associated with 3D printing and a shortage of skilled professionals. However, the rising adoption of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies, along with the increasing demand for artificial 3D-printed organs, presents significant opportunities for market expansion. Conversely, issues with the accuracy and repeatability of 3D printing compared to traditional methods remain a notable hurdle.
