Kenya 3D Printing Medical Devices Market Executive Summary

The Kenya 3D Printing Medical Devices Market size is at around $2 Mn in 2022 and is projected to reach $8 Mn in 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.40% during the forecast period. Kenya's Total Health Spending increased from $3,188 million in 2016 to $3,476 million in 2020. Kenya spent 6.3% of GDP on health overall in 2020, down from 6.8% in 2014. Out-of-pocket expenses made up 23.25% of Kenya's total current health spending in 2020. Out-of-pocket expenses decreased gradually from 36.25% in 2015 to 23.25% in 2020 as a percentage of Kenya's present health expenditures.

In Kenya, Patient-specific medical equipment is being created using 3D printing, which has generated a lot of curiosity. Utilizing 3D printing, customised medical equipment can be created for each patient. By doing this, the device will suit perfectly and provide the required support or treatment. With 3D printing, it is not essential to use expensive tooling or manufacturing processes. This makes it a cost-effective choice for producing medical devices, particularly those that need to be produced in small quantities. With 3D printing, medical device creation can be completed much more quickly than with traditional manufacturing methods. This is particularly useful in an emergency situation where time is of the importance. Medical equipment that is 3D printed provides patients with more support, comfort, and usefulness when compared to conventional devices. 3D printing produces very little waste because it only uses the exact amount of material needed to make the object.

Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers Analysis

Kenya's population growth and increased prevalence of chronic diseases are contributing to an increase in the demand for healthcare services. Manufacturers of 3D-printed medical devices now have the chance to offer the public creative solutions to meet their healthcare requirements. In Kenya, funding for medical gadget research and development using 3D printing is increasing. It is anticipated that this will result in the creation of novel goods that address the particular healthcare requirements of the local populace. With investments in infrastructure and technology, the Kenyan government is aggressively promoting the growth of the healthcare industry. Manufacturers of 3D-printed medical devices should be able to develop and expand their businesses thanks to this support.

Market Restraints

As Kenya's healthcare infrastructure is still being developed, access to medical facilities, equipment, and qualified personnel poses challenges. Reaching their target market and providing the necessary help may be difficult for manufacturers of 3D-printed medical devices. Although Kenyans are becoming more aware of the benefits of 3D printing medical equipment, the technology is still relatively new and has not yet gained widespread use. This may make it challenging for producers to find clients and generate revenue. Access to financing is a significant barrier for many Kenyan producers of 3D-printed medical devices. Lack of funding may prevent manufacturers from investing in R&D, production, marketing, or company growth.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

The regulatory organisation in charge of regulating the importation, production, and dissemination of 3D printed medical devices in Kenya is the Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB). All medical equipment, including those made using 3D printing, must currently be registered with the PPB in order to be bought or used in Kenya. The safety, functionality, and quality of a medical device must be fully disclosed by the maker, along with proof of the device's clinical efficacy, in order for the device to be registered. To make sure that manufacturers adhere to Good Manufacturing Practises (GMP) guidelines, the PPB examines this data and performs site inspections. The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS), which is in charge of setting technical standards and making sure that products adhere to safety and quality standards, was created by the Kenyan government in addition to the PPB. A standard for 3D-printed medical devices is being created by KEBS, which has established standards for a variety of goods, including medical devices.
