3D Cell Culture Market Size Worth $3.48 Billion By 2028 | CAGR: 10.7%

January 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

3D Cell Culture Market Growth & Trends

The global 3D cell culture market size is expected to reach USD 3.48 billion by 2028 registering a CAGR of 10.7%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The development of 3D optimized assays, kits, and protocols coupled with the evolution of assay techniques is anticipated to drive the three-dimensional cell culture market.

As 3-dimensional cultures have the capacity to closely mimic a typical morphology and microarchitecture of organs, these are continuously developed for the studies that require in vivo model systems to analyze the effect of a foreign drug over body tissues and organs. This, coupled with the availability of various choices in terms of material and structure of the scaffold for different in vitro applications, is anticipated to support revenue generation for scaffolds.

Recent researches have explored the use of a diverse range of scaffolds including graphene scaffolds, nanofibers, freeze-casting, natural marine collagen, and others. In addition, the application of lab-on-a-chip techniques in several assay types-proliferation, viability, stimulation, transport, patch clamping, high content screening, and metabolic activity-leads to a rise in demand for projects with advanced and efficient solutions.
