Market Overview

The Latin America 3D 4D Technology Market is expected to reach a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. Latin America is a developing region where the ease of technological advancement is in a growing phase. The first additive manufacturing consortium was created in Latin America to enhance its north-central region's technological, scientific, and innovation cooperation.​

  • This consortium in the region is expected to allow the implementation of 3D bioprinting through joint projects. The selected partners are expected to invest over USD 13 million in implementing new additive manufacturing infrastructure and are committed to designing, manufacturing, and repairing 3D printed components.
  • However, it is a region with a high variation in economic development and health profiles among populations. The usage of 3D reconstruction is mainly in the heritage and medical field through which it provides growth to the market.​
  • Players are increasingly collaborating in the 3D technology market to develop the technology further and boost its adoption. Companies, such as Renato Archer Information Technology Center and Biomagnetism Laboratory at the University of São Paulo, in partnership, have developed a free open source 3D medical imaging reconstruction- InVesalius that generates a 3D image from a sequence of 2D DICOM images (CT or MRI).​​
  • The disruption caused in the global supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to look at technologies, which allow for remote manufacturing capabilities without the need for investment in large areas, and as such, 3D and 4D technologies provide solutions to such issues. Further to this, the pandemic has created the need for companies to maintain digital copies/assets relating to data to manufacture a component/object. In any case, the 3D printer bridges the gap by utilizing these digital designs to produce products as and when required, thus providing opportunities in these testing times.

Key Market Trends

Healthcare is Expected to Hold Prominent Market Share

  • The region has a majority of its population within the age group of 15-64, increasing the emphasis on healthcare. Moreover, the income and wealth are unequally distributed, which results in a considerable percentage of the population living in poverty. Due to the low economic stability, the market for 3D 4D technology is still small but is expected to gain momentum looking at the investments and innovations taking place in the healthcare sector.
  • For instance, Brazil works with 3D-printing technology, and CT scanned imagery to reconstruct skull fragments at a lower cost. Doctors and researchers in Brazil develop affordable cranial reconstruction, which can cost up to USD 50,000 for cranial reconstruction surgery.​
  • Additionally, researchers from the National University of La Plata and CONICET in Argentina are developing a 3D bioprinting system incorporating the 4th axis. This new 3D printer will likely enable the additive manufacturing of more complex cylindrical, tubular, or helical mesh structures. ​
  • This study was conducted at the Human Genome and Stem Cell Research Center (HUG-CELL). Hosted by the University of Sao Paulo (USP), HUG-CELL is one of the research, innovation, and dissemination centers (RIDCs) funded by the Sao Paulo Research Foundation, FAPESP. The study combined bioengineering techniques, such as cell reprogramming and the cultivation of pluripotent stem cells, with 3D bioprinting.​

Brazil is Expected to WItness Significant Market Share

  • The region has a comparatively high expenditure in end-user industries such as Healthcare. For instance, in February 2019, SchemaView received approval from ANVISA (the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency) to use the RAPID imaging platform across the Brazilian region. RAPID is designed to provide physicians with fast, fully automated, elegant, and easy-to-interpret imaging that facilitates clinical decision-making around stroke.
  • It automatically provides straightforward, easy to interpret CTA maps, including a colored overlay to identify brain regions with reduced blood vessel density. Additionally, a 3D reconstruction of the vasculature enables physicians to rotate the image for optimal viewing of the vessels from multiple angles.​
  • Furthermore, players are engaging in mergers to gain the market business. Belgian software and 3D printing service provider, Materialise acquired a 75% stake in Engimplan, a Brazil-based medical device manufacturer. In this agreement, Materialise will apply its medical 3D printing expertise in Engimplan’s device portfolio. Together, both companies will accelerate the introduction of 3D printed medical implants and instruments in the Brazilian market.​
  • By implementing 3D printing from Materialise, Engimplan’s range of medical devices will gain additional benefits and allow the development of highly personalized implants capable of catering to the unique anatomy of different patients.​
  • Aerial photography has many applications in archaeology, surveillance, environmental studies, and agriculture, among others. One particular use is in 3D reconstruction, in which the images from a flight are used alongside GPS and attitude data to create a georeferenced 3D model of the area flown over, which helps examine an area to gain a better perspective. ​

Competitive Landscape

The market for the 3D 4D technology market in Latin America is moderately fragmented owing to the presence of major international players, and the market is expected to become competitive as the technology becomes more robust and cost-effective. Some of the recent developments in the region are -

  • February 2020 - INMETRO, a Brazilian standards organization, has signed a partnership agreement with local AM company FARCCO Tecnologia Industrial with the express goal of accelerating the implementation and adoption of additive manufacturing in Brazil’s industrial sectors. The partners believe that AM will help companies in Brazil achieve a higher technological capacity.

Recent Developments

  • December 2021 - PGS secured a contract from Petrobras to conduct 4D seismic surveys in two offshore fields in Brazil. The survey will begin in Q2 of 2022 and be completed by Q3. Petrobras announced plans to invest $ 68 billion in November 2021 to increase oil production in the submarine pre-salt region. Brazilian state-owned enterprises will invest over the five years from 2022 to 2026.
  • March 2020 - Copper 3D, a Chilean manufacturer of innovative antibacterial filaments designed the own version of the popular N95 protective mask and prepared it perfectly optimized for 3D printing on desktop 3D printers of the FDM / FFF type. The project is released under an open-source license and has been simultaneously patenting pending to prevent other entities from commercializing it.
