"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The 4D printing technology has brought in generous transformation in the medical industry. 4D printing is the process through which a 3D printed object transforms itself into another structure over the influence of external energy input as temperature, light, or other environmental stimuli. Technological advancements in 3D printing technology and the increasing demand for innovations in organ transplants are the major factors driving the market's growth. Also, the focus of market players to develop 4D printing applications for targeted drug delivery is expected to boost the development of the market.
The increase in research and development activities, growing investment by key market players are the factors fueling the market over the forecast duration. For instance, in May 2019, 3D Systems launched Simbionix ANGIO Tab Pro endovascular simulator which is a first-to-market solution designed for gradually training of endovascular interventions. The lightweight construction reduces angio tab pro to be an ultra-portable solution, making it ideal to be used at conferences, also as within the physician’s clinic or home. Combined with this, production of useful implants such as biocompatibility, including biomedical splits and stents, could be a primary factor anticipating the industry growth.
However, the high development cost, strict government regulations for the implantable devices and smart materials used for the product, coupled with low awareness among low- and middle-income countries are some of the factors hampering the market growth.
