Global Biocompatible 3D Printing Materials Market: Key Players

The market for biocompatible 3D printing materials is extremely concentrated, with a few significant producers holding the lion's share of the industry. The majority of businesses invest a lot on thorough research and development, especially to produce environmentally friendly products. Key players frequently use mergers and acquisitions as well as product portfolio expansion. The major players in the market include 3D Systems, Inc., Envisiontec, Inc., Renishaw plc, Evonik Industries AG, EOS GmbH, Concept Laser, Inc., and Stratasys Ltd.

Some developments by the key players in the global market for biocompatible 3D printing materials are:

  • On April 14, 2022, Sandvik revealed the addition of 3D-printed biocompatible materials in cemented carbide to their offering for additive manufacturing. A unique method combined with custom-made powder created on-site allows for the increased capacity.
  • Leading 3D printing business Formlabs revealed on November 29, 2020 that it has created two novel biocompatible materials that will debut at RSNA 2021. The BioMed Black Resin as well as BioMed White Resin are intended for use in settings where opaque materials are required for their usability or aesthetic appeal.
  • New materials were introduced on November 19, 2019, by 3D Systems. These materials are anticipated to provide new production options that will be widely adopted by industry. The best-in-class high heat deflection temperature (HDT) as well as USP Class VI biocompatibility criteria of VisiJet M2S-HT90 make it the perfect choice for applications in the consumer goods, automotive, and healthcare industries.

To effectively develop dental equipment using 3D printing technology, one must take into account the mechanical qualities of biocompatible materials. A poor material selection might result in breakage or significant deformation, which would impair the functionality of the created item. New biocompatible materials are being used in CAD/CAM technologies, and production processes are becoming more accurate and quicker. There is a thus an increasing demand for biocompatible 3D printing.
