Additive manufacturing (AM) is an automatic process used to create rapid prototypes and functional end-use parts. It takes virtual designs from Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, and transforms them into thin, virtual, horizontal layer-wise cross-sections, until the model is complete. Various synonyms generally used for AM are additive fabrication, additive processes, additive techniques, additive layer manufacturing, layer manufacturing, and freeform fabrication.
The Additive Manufacturing Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.5%, to reach $3,471.9 million.

The penetration rate of additive manufacturing for the medical devices market is faltering in emerging markets. However, established companies and new entrants in the additive manufacturing for medical devices market should consider these GDP growth rates, ease of product approval, increasing procedural volumes, and low penetration rates compared to mature markets, as the driving opportunistic factors that will plant the seed for future possible success for such companies.
Europe accounts for the largest market share of the global additive manufacturing for medical devices market in 2012, followed by North America. In the future, it is estimated that the share of the European region will decrease, attributable to lowering device prices, regulatory pressures, and increasing focus of players towards emerging markets in the Asian and Latin American regions.
