Companies Diversify Revenue Streams by Dedicating 3D Printers for COVID-19 Kit Production

An increasing number of 3D printing facilities is being used to produce COVID-19 supplies. SmileDirectClub - a Nashville-based teledentistry company is gaining recognition for using its resources to establish a 3D printing facility focused on producing medical supplies required to respond during the coronavirus outbreak. In this way, stakeholders in the dental 3D printing market are bolstering their credibility credentials whilst diversifying their revenue streams.

Business activities in the dental 3D printing market have been affected due to the ongoing pandemic, since individuals are limiting their visits to dentists only until necessary. Formlabs - a 3D printing technology developer and manufacturer is dedicating its 3D printers for developing necessary tools and kits utilized to diagnose patients with potential COVID-19 infection.

Automation Technologies Help overcome Cost, Health Limitations of Production Activities

3D printing, otherwise known as additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping or layered manufacturing is rapidly growing due to the proliferation of automated technologies, such as in the development of clear aligners. However, conventional 3D printing is a relatively costly technology and increases the risk of skin irritation and inhalation of powders during production activities. Hence, companies in the dental 3D printing market should invest in R&D for automated 3D printing technologies to overcome traditional production challenges.

Since most dentists do not have 3D printers in clinics and offices, the need for on-demand 3D printing services is surging. LuxCreo - a specialist in 3D printing and large-scale manufacturing is capitalizing on this opportunity to provide dental products on demand.

Proprietary Materials, Cloud-connected Smart Factories Storm Market

The dental 3D printing market is projected to advance at a robust CAGR of ~9% during the forecast period. New resins for dental manufacturing and engineering are inundating the market landscape. Companies are introducing proprietary materials such as reformulated Draft Resins that enable users to print up to four times faster than currently available resins.

Thus, to boost credibility, stakeholders in the dental 3D printing market are increasing efforts to acquire FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved 3D printing services for night guards and retainers. Cloud-connected smart factories are grabbing the attention of dentists where suppliers help in printing and shipping of customized dental products to the dentists’ office or directly to the patients.

3D Printing Enables Cost-efficient Development of Custom-made Dental Products

3D printing is reshaping dentistry. This is evident since innovations, right from dentures to Invisalign retainer braces, are creating value-grab opportunities for companies in the global dental 3D printing market. 3D printing is making it possible to develop custom-made dental implants that suit specific needs of consumers. Manufacturers are realizing that the one-size-fits-all approach for dental implants often requires multiple iterations of the same mouthpiece.

Manufacturers in the dental 3D printing market are producing unique surgical guides, crowns, and trays at relatively quick speeds and in cost-efficient ways. 3D printing is eliminating the need of the lengthy process of taking physical impressions and creating a plaster mock-up of a patient’s teeth to manufacture a device.

3D Printed Digital Models Help to Test Drive Patient’s Future Dental Outcomes

Companies in the dental 3D printing market are investing in planning centers that use the 3D printing technology to assist dentists in the planning of their patients’ treatments. This has led to the concept of 3D printed digital models that predict the desired outcome of a patient’s teeth after complete dental treatment.

3D printed models are allowing patients to test drive their future ideal teeth. Manufacturers in the dental 3D printing market are innovating in simulated end-result teeth that are 3D printed and worn in the mouth to see and feel the difference. Such business strategies are helping to bridge the communication gap between patients and their dentists and share a common objective of outcome from any given dental treatment.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Apart from utilizing 3D printers for producing COVID-19 products such as PPE and testing supplies, increased marketing and advertising through eCommerce and telehealth are helping in the uptake of clear aligners, braces, and other dental products. The dental 3D printing market is expected to reach US$ 2.9 Bn by 2031. However, it has been found that ceramics, which are widely used in dentistry, lack the ability to be 3D printed due to high porosity caused during fabrication. Hence, companies should increase R&D and investment in automated production technologies to overcome the shortcomings of conventional production methods.

Dental 3D Printing Market: Overview

  • Dental 3D printing is a method of designing three-dimensional solid dental models such as implants, surgical guides, braces, dentures, crowns, and bridges.
