Thailand 3D Printing Medical Devices Market Executive Summary

The Thailand 3D Printing Medical Devices Market size is at around $4 Mn in 2022 and is projected to reach $12 Mn in 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.64% during the forecast period. The overall cost of healthcare in Thailand is thought to be $25.3 billion. Costs are projected to increase by $47.9 billion by 2026, which would indicate a compound annual growth rate of 6.6% over the preceding 10 years. With a 6.6% share of GDP, the expense of healthcare is also high. Another issue is Thailand's ageing populace, which will comprise 20% of the nation's population by 2024.  In 2019, Thailand's per-capita healthcare expenditure was $296. The average annual growth rate for Thailand's health expenditure per capita was 8.83%, rising from US$62 in 2000 to US$296 in 2019.

Thailand's medical sector has adopted 3D printing, with numerous hospitals and research facilities using this technology to enhance patient treatment. Custom prosthetics can be created using 3D printing and can be produced to suit each patient's individual anatomy, improving comfort and functionality. Thailand-based surgeons use 3D printed surgical guides to guarantee accurate and exact placement of surgical tools, implants, and other medical devices. Implants can now be produced using 3D printers that are more durable and biocompatible and conform to the anatomy of the patient. The development of specialised hearing aids that precisely suit the patient's ear canal thanks to 3D printing technology has improved comfort and sound quality. By enabling the creation of specialised dental implants that precisely fit the patient's mouth and offer greater stability and functionality, 3D printing has revolutionised the dental sector.

Notable Recent Deals

2020: MicroPort Scientific Corporation, a manufacturer of 3D Printed medical devices, declared intentions to invest $100 million in a 3D printing facility in Thailand in 2020. The facility will be used to make medical devices using 3D printing technology, including orthopaedic implants.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

The Medical Device Act, which offers a regulatory framework for the production, import, and sale of medical devices, was created by the Thai government in terms of healthcare policies and laws. The Thai Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is in charge of overseeing medical device regulation in the nation, is in charge of enforcing the law. The FDA also keeps a list of medical devices that are authorised, and this list includes 3D printed medical devices. The growth of the 3D printing sector in Thailand has received support from the Thai government. A 3D printing laboratory has been created at the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) as one of the initiatives the Ministry of Industry has launched to encourage the use of 3D printing technology.
