Assessment of Zoan products as biomaterials for 3D printing in health care

Project description

3D printing using marine coral

3D printing technology is a rapid emerging technology that empowers manufacturers in the medical sector to produce customised medical equipment and products. Zoan Biomed, a dynamic SME based in the west coast of Ireland, specialises in cultivating medical-grade marine coral and creating products from it that can be used as a bone graft substitute. Zoan, through the EU-funded InnovationOrigin project aims to pen up a new realm of potential applications through the 3D printing sector. Zoan is positioning itself to enter the global 3D printing market, which was valued at USD 4.2 billion in 2014, and is projected to reach USD 44.4 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 21.8 % from 2019 to 2025.
