South Africa 3D Printing Medical Devices Market Executive Summary

South Africa's 3D Printing Medical Device Market is expected to grow from $19 Mn in 2022 to $70 Mn in 2030 with a CAGR of 17.53% for the forecasted year 2022-30.  The South African government spends more money on healthcare (14% as opposed to 11%). The administration has been trying to make the health budget line item larger. Implementing National Health Insurance (NHI) will be challenging due to the high cost, which is predicted to hit US$16.5 Bn annually by 2025. $16.4 billion, or 1.1% more than the previous year, was allocated for healthcare in the South Africa Health budget. 

In South Africa, 3D printing has attracted a lot of interest and is being used to produce personalized medicinal equipment for patients. Custom medical devices can be produced using 3D printing and are made specifically for each patient. By doing this, the device is guaranteed to fit precisely and offer the necessary support or treatment. The use of costly tooling and manufacturing techniques is not necessary with 3D printing. This makes it an affordable option for manufacturing medical devices, especially those that are required in small quantities. Medical device production is much quicker with 3D printing than it is with conventional manufacturing techniques. In an emergency where speed is of the essence, this is especially helpful. When compared to conventional devices, 3D-printed medical equipment offers patients greater support, comfort, and functionality. Since 3D printing only uses the precise quantity of material required to create the object, it generates very little waste.

Notable Recent Deals

2020: The Medical University of South Africa (MEDUNSA) and Materialise, a provider of 3D printing software and services, announced a partnership in 2020 to create a 3D printing medical training facility. The facility is made to offer practical training in 3D printing technology and its uses in healthcare to medical workers.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

In South Africa, the licencing, importation, and distribution of 3D-printed medical devices are subject to the Medicines and Related Substances Act (No. 101 of 1965). The requirements of this act must be met by any 3D printed medical device that is planned for domestic marketing. For the safety and quality of 3D-printed medical devices in South Africa, standards are established by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS). Guidelines for the testing and certification of 3D printed medical equipment, including specifications for material properties, mechanical testing, and biocompatibility, have been released by SABS. South Africa's National Department of Health (NDoH) is in charge of creating and enforcing healthcare laws and rules. For the use of 3D printing technology in healthcare, the NDoH has created guidelines that include suggestions for clinical validation, quality control, and patient safety.
