A 3D cell culture is an in vitro technique where cells can grow in an artificially created environment, which closely resemble the structure and functioning of the native tissues, thus stimulating normal differentiation, morphology, and behavior of cells. The growth of 3D cell culture market is driven by the technological advancements such as development of improved scaffold-based & scaffold-free products, increase in research-related activities, and rise in demand for organ transplantations. The collaborations between companies, hospitals, and academic institutions have led to launch of new products, which further boost the market growth. In addition, stringent regulations against use of animal models for various pharmaceutical and diagnostic tests fuel the growth of the market. However, lack of skilled professionals and budget restrictions for research-related activities restrain the market growth.
Cancer research is anticipated to dominate the global 3D cell culture market throughout the analysis period. This is because the behavior of the cancer cells grown in 3D culture is similar to the cells that grow in vivo. Thus, 3D cell culture allows researchers to study various tumor characteristics such as hypoxia, dormancy, and anti-apoptotic behavior. The R&D activities in oncology have rapidly increased, owing to the multiple advantages of 3D cell culture.
North America dominated the 3D cell culture market, governing around two-fifths of the global market value in 2015, and is expected to continue this trend throughout the forecast period. Advancements in various healthcare applications such as cancer and tissue engineering fuel the market growth. For instance, in 2016, a Canadian scientist created a miniature lattice structure called AngioChip that is anticipated to be used to grow human tissues outside the body. This person-on-a-chip technology is used to test the effects of drugs on human tissues.
