3D Printing: Move beyond the hype and discover its true commercial value

3D printing has the potential to impact the entire product lifecycle. No longer just the darling of R&D departments, this fledgling technology is extending its reach. Although experts agree it’s not a panacea, it certainly can’t be ignored either. What difference is 3D printing making now? What developments are expected? And what is the single biggest factor that could seriously hamper further progress if pharma doesn’t lay the right foundations today?

Report Overview

The Future of 3D Printing in Pharma cuts through the hype and identifies where the tangible value can be gained from this emerging technology. Insights are drawn from interviews with 8 experts from pharmaceutical and technology companies and institutes at the forefront of these ground-breaking new developments.

Report Features

  • Summary of the lessons already learned, both from within pharma circles and in other sectors further ahead in the development and application phases.
  • Assessment of the set-up and resources to consider, including the various disciplines, external alliances, and the impact on current structures.
  • Detailed discussion on potential commercial opportunities and how these can be aligned with clinical need.
  • Pragmatic view of the transition from academic development to business innovation and the risks involved.

Key Benefits

  • Separates the facts from the hype: Gain clarity on developments to date as well as the wider ramifications of adopting this new technology including cost, scalability and time to market.
  • Puts 3D printing into the context of pharma: Understand possible applications as well as where the most potential lies to benefit drug developers, manufacturers, payers and patients.
  • Provides thought provoking ideas and inspiration: Find out what the experts are saying about what the future holds, not just for the pharma industry but for the wider medical community.

Why 3D printing matters for pharma

Clearly there is little point in innovation for its own sake. 3D printing has been of interest in pharma R&D departments for a while, but now others are also taking notice – and for good reason. 3D printing may well be the catalyst that transforms the drug manufacturing landscape forever, not only in terms of how drugs are manufactured and administered but also in key areas such as speed to market, cost and personalisation. As the technology is now so accessible, the question for pharma companies is not ‘should you be involved?’, it’s ‘why wouldn’t you?’

Key Questions Answered By This Report

  • Where does 3D printing belong? Is it just in R&D and prototyping or are there real opportunities in manufacturing? Ultimately, how likely is decentralisation of manufacturing in the long term?
  • Is it time to open the floodgates for personalisation of medicine? Can 3D printing successfully create customised pills or devices that more closely meet patient needs?
  • Is the technology a match for pharma quality standards? Risk of abuse and counterfeiting are not new issues, but does 3D printing present any further complications in these key areas?
  • How could the widespread adoption of 3D printing transform the supply chain and bring the end product closer to the patient? Will pharma companies become designers and developers only?
  • What is the value proposition? And what are the opportunities, risks and challenges associated with the potential gains?

3 Key Quotes

“What's interesting about 3D printing is the crossover point where it becomes economically as well as technically interesting. The next question is, will it be clinically and commercially successful? Of course, that's not a given with any product.”
Clive Roberts, University of Nottingham, UK

“It is conceivable that a pharmacy in the future would in fact be able to print pills itself and that would, of course, change the structure of the industry considerably. The pharmaceutical company would then be the pill developer and designer but not the manufacturer. There could be shift from a centralised to a decentralised manufacturing model.”
Adam Cohen, Additive Insight LLC, USA

“It’s my belief that the development of 3D printing for use in the printing of medicines will require multiple parties to collaborate.”
Martin Wallace, GlaxoSmithKline

Key Questions Answered By This Report

  • Who has a role to play? Is patient focus a departmental or company-wide strategy? Is it just about patients or should pharma also engage with family members, carers and others?
  • What are the commercial benefits? Are there key metrics to have in place to keep track of progress? What does success look like?
  • How is the concept of patient centricity similar to ethics within pharma? What can be learned from reviewing how an ethical stance is accepted and embedded across the business?
  • When does the patient become most important? At what point in the product lifecycle should pharma seek to engage patients? How should engagement take place?
