3D printing technologies were first developed for the purpose of creating fast and cost effective prototype for the product development within industries and are called as the rapid prototyping (RP). Since then it has been evolved and widened its application from just creating a prototype to creation of the final product itself. 3D printing technology is now considered as the game changer in many fields such as healthcare, aerospace, industrial manufacturing, jewelry, and many other sectors cited to its time and cost saving benefits.

3D printing technology finds its major applications in healthcare industry; it has already being widely used in prosthetics, orthopedics, and dental implants cited to its ability to replicate the complex human organ structure with accuracy. Dental industry is one of the prominent industry that is set to transform by the 3D printing since it possess the ability of mass customization to produce multiple individualized items. With combination of oral scanning, CAD/CAM design and 3D printing; dental laboratories are now able to manufacture most accurate crowns, bridges, stone models, and a range of other orthodontic appliances rapidly. Also, the increased awareness regarding the dental health, and rising edentulous population opens more opportunities for 3D printing technologies. Moreover, it decreases the fabrication time significantly and increases the output marginally in comparison with the tradition practices at the dental laboratories.

It is observed that there are already about a million 3D printed dental implants all across the globe. Most of the dental laboratories in developed nations like the U.S. have already adopted 3D printing technologies to increase production efficiency and precision in the manufacturing.

This increasing adoption and efficiency of 3D printing technology promises the number of opportunities to all the stakeholders in this market. According to the latest market research report published by Meticulous Research® on “Global Dental 3D Printing Market Outlook: 2014-2020”, the global dental 3D printing market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 23.3% to reach $752.5 million by the end of 2020. It also elucidates and analyzes the major drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges that have a long and short-term impact on its growth across the globe. Growing adoption rate of 3D printing technology among the dental laboratories is one of the key drivers of this market since it enables the laboratories to reduce the manufacturing time significantly with the ability to customize the dental products.
