Further, the technology segmentation includes electron beam melting, selective laser melting, selective laser sintering, photo polymerization, direct metal laser sintering and others On the basis of application the 3D printing medical device market is segmented into orthopedic & cranial implant, dental restorations, surgical instruments and others (tissue fabrication & external prosthesis).
Photo polymerization will remain the most lucrative technology for 3D-printing medical devices, followed by laser beam melting.
