Global Additive Manufacturing Technologies Market: Overview
Technological advances have become an integral part of reconstructive surgery. New developments in software, imaging modalities, additive manufacturing, and customization of implants are poised to revolutionize the field of reconstructive surgery. Digital 3D design data is used in additive manufacturing technologies process to build a component in layers with deposition of material. Additive manufacturing technologies uses material in powder form to build a product. Additive manufacturing technologies are useful in cases where conventional technologies have limitations and when a new approach to design and manufacture is required to derive a solution. Additive technologies use a design driven manufacturing process, thereby enabling highly complex structures to be light and stable. The principle behind additive manufacturing technologies is applying a powder material in the form of layers to build the platform. Then a beam of powerful laser fuses with the powder exactly at defined points generated by computer component design data. Later the platform is lowered and the process is repeated for application of one more powder layer. There is again fusion of material and the technique used depending upon the type of material materials. Additive technology is effective in making pieces that are resilient and precise. Hence, the technology is being used to develop products with benefits such as design free, low quantity economic, material efficiency, predictable time, and reduced assembly space.
Global Additive Manufacturing Technologies Market: Drivers and Restraints
Rapidly changing economies of scale, rise in gold prices, outsourced manufacturing making it important to find cost effective methods, increase in demand for restoration, government investment, increased application areas, robust product development at low cost, and ease of development with customized products drive the global market. However, regulatory uncertainty, limited choice of materials used, material and process manufacturing qualification and certification standards, and ethical consideration are likely to restrain the market.
Global Additive Manufacturing Technologies Market: Key Segments
The global additive manufacturing technologies market can be segmented based on technology, processes, application, end-user, and region.
