These technologies vary in their efficiency and accuracy. These technologies are being used to manufacture various medical structures such as surgical guides, medical implants, surgical instruments and bioengineering. The material used to manufacture these bio-models include metal, polymer, ceramic and biological cells. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.4% from 2013 to 2019. This growth is attributed to rise in demand of quick medical solutions. In addition, government funding, increase in research and development investments and rising application areas of 3D printing in the medical industry would also boost the growth of this market.

Laser beam melting (LBM) and photopolymerization has accounted for the major share of the market in 3D printing for medical applications. They have proven to be more accurate and efficient for manufacturing various bio-models. The market for LBM and photopolymerization is expected to have the highest growth during the forecasted period. To manufacture various bio-models, the most used raw materials are metal and polymers. These technologies coupled with raw materials are majorly used to manufacture medical implants which include dental, orthopedic and cranio-maxillofacial implants. The medical implants market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of more than 15% from 2013 to 2019.

Geographically, the North American region constituted the largest market share for 3D printing in medical application in 2012; however, Europe is predicted to foresee the highest growth rate from 2013 to 2019.
