The 4D printing in healthcare market is projected to reach at a CAGR 27.93% rate during the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by technological advancements in 3D printing technology, such as the development of smart, programmable materials. On the other hand, high development and production costs, need for compliance with regulatory and performance standards that will slow product launches, and potential safety hazards are the factors restraining the growth of this market.

Software & services segment accounted for the largest share of the 4D printing in healthcare market. Software has a diverse range of applications in additive manufacturing. 3D printing software is used for creating, designing, and assembling models required in the healthcare space. This software also inspects prototypes to ensure that the required specifications have been met. The file preparation software prepares STL and SLC files to develop the product design. Software needed for should fully support the process.

FDM segment is expected to account for the largest share in healthcare market. However, the PolyJet segment is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. This technology enables the development of complex shapes with intricate details and delicate features. It offers products with a variety of colors and materials into a single model. The reduced material wastage due to the higher accuracy of deposition and the ability to use multiple materials and colors are the major advantages of this process, thus, driving its demand.

North America accounted for the largest share of the 4D printing in healthcare market during the forecast period. This can majorly be attributed to the continuous technological advancements, growing demand for organ transplantation, efforts taken in the research & development of the technology in the healthcare sector, and the presence of highly developed healthcare infrastructure in the region.

Key market players include 3D Systems (US), Organovo Holdings Inc. (US), Stratasys Ltd. (US & Israel), Dassault Systèmes (France), Materialise (Belgium), EOS GmbH Electro Optical Systems (Germany), EnvisionTEC (Germany), and Poietis (France).
