“The biocompatible 3D printing materials market is projected to register a CAGR of 22.0%, in terms of value, between 2018 and 2023.”
The biocompatible 3D printing materials market size is estimated to be USD 308.1 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 832.7 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 22.0% between 2018 and 2023. The increasing demand for biocompatible 3D printing materials in medical applications is one of the most significant factors driving the biocompatible 3D printing materials market. 3D printing is a process used for creating objects directly, by adding materials layer by layer in a variety of ways, depending on the technology used. 3D printing technologies are developed to encourage and drive innovations with unique design freedom; these technologies are tool-less processes that reduce the excessive costs and lead times. By using biocompatible 3D printing materials, various components of a structure can be designed. The high cost of materials is restraining the mass adoption of the 3D printing technology in various applications.

“The polymer type segment is projected to dominate the overall biocompatible 3D printing materials market during the forecast period.”
Polymer materials can be used in orthopedic & dental implants, hearing aids, drug delivery, prosthesis, tissue engineering scaffolds, and other medical applications. These materials are easily moldable, biocompatible, biodegradable, and cheaper as compared to metal and bioink. Thus, the biocompatible 3D printing polymer market is projected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period.

“The biocompatible 3D printing materials market in the tissue engineering application is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Tissue engineering is a broad term which can be further segmented into applications such as 3D cell culture, bone regeneration, drug release, soft tissue fabrication, 3D tissue constructs, and others. The increasing cases of tissue or organ failure due to age, diseases, accidents, and congenital disabilities are a serious medical problem, globally. 3D printing with biocompatible materials can solve these problems by elevating the need for donors and tissue match. Tissue engineering is estimated to be the fastest-growing application during the forecast period because of the growing research and investments made on bio fabrication of body parts and organ printing.

“The biocompatible 3D printing materials in the powder form is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
On the basis of form, the biocompatible 3D printing materials market is classified into powder, liquid, and others. Powder is the leading form in the global biocompatible 3D printing materials market. Powder form is compatible with several 3D printers and hence is used in medical applications such as implants & prosthesis, bio fabrication, and surgical instruments.

“The biocompatible 3D printing materials market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023.”
The biocompatible 3D printing materials market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for biocompatible 3D printing materials in China, Japan, South Korea, and others countries. The growth of the biocompatible 3D printing materials market in APAC is mainly due to the rising geriatric population, increasing focus of major players on emerging Asian countries, rising awareness about healthcare, and willingness of people to spend more on advanced medical treatments.
