Additive Manufacturing For Medical and Healthcare Conference

According to a new research report from Albany, NY based Transparency Market Research, the global market for 3-D printing in medical application was valued $354.5 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4 percent from 2013 to 2019 to reach $965.5 million by 2019.

Additive manufacturing has allowed the successful printing of prosthetics, dental work and hearing aids, which can all be made from plastic or pliable materials and often need to be tailored to a specific patient. New technology will soon be able to print blood vessels, skin, even embryonic stem cells and more.
