The global market for additive manufacturing technologies is set to double in 2012-17. While much of this expansion will be in product design and prototyping, a growing niche of custom-made, one-of-a-kind implantable devices are being made from computer aided design (CAD) files drawn up using a patient's actual anatomical dimensions. The attraction of these is that fit can be improved substantially, compared with more traditional generically-sized products. A leading light is USA-based Oxford Performance Materials, co-founded by Scott DeFelice.
