The global 3D cell culture market size is expected to reach USD 1.69 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., exhibiting a 14.8% CAGR during the forecast period. Need to incorporate 3D cell culture systems in research for better representation of in vivo environment has driven development of new materials and methods, thereby propelling market growth.
3D cell culture is more suitable for in vivo modeling due to the resemblance they provide to morphology of organ or cells. Several 3D cell culture options are available in the form of scaffold-based, scaffold-free, and 3D bioreactor systems. Emergence of 3D optimized assays, kits, and protocols, along with maturity in development of different assay techniques, is projected to accelerate market growth.
Increasing adoption of tissue engineering and organ transplantation for chronic diseases is projected to drive adoption in research over the forecast period. Furthermore, use of microchips to implement culturing through use of micro-fabricated tissue component is expected to present the market with potential avenues.
Fabrication techniques to produce scaffold-free systems that are inexpensive, transparent, and compatible with liquid handling tools have emerged. Rapid adoption of these systems for tissue engineering research, drug discovery, and personalized medicine contributes to market growth. Scaffold-free technology is expected to observe the fastest growth over the next few years, registering an estimated CAGR of around 15.7% from 2016 to 2024.
