Global 3D Cell Culture Market to Reach US$ 4,123 Million by 2027, Impelled by Extensive R&D Activities

Published on Aug 16, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "3D Cell Culture Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global 3D cell culture market reached a value of US$ 1,746 Million in 2021. 3D cell culture refers to an artificial environment that allows cells to interact and grow in an in vitro condition. This is done by adding a third dimension that can mimic the complex interactions between cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM). Some of the common methods of 3D cell culture include multicellular tumor spheroids (MCTS), suspension culture, device-assisted suspension culture and gel embedding culture, that are widely adopted for developing biological cells. In comparison to the 2D culture system, this method represents the actual microenvironment where cells reside in tissues more accurately and provides excellent in vitro models.   

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global 3D Cell Culture Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing prevalence of chronic diseases among the masses. Along with this, continual improvements in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors are providing a boost to the uptake of the 3D cell culture method. Since the method facilitates easy impersonation of microarchitecture and morphology of organs, there has been a considerable increase in the adoption of 3D cell culture to analyze the effects of foreign drugs on tissues and cells. Moreover, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players for drug discovery, stem cell study and engineered functional tissues for implantation are creating a positive market outlook. Apart from this, the rapid outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has encouraged key players to study the infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 and immune responses. Additionally, continual technological advancements in the 3D cell culture method are impacting the market growth favorably. Other factors, including the rising number of research laboratories and the growing preference for personalized medicines, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 4,123 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 15.28% during 2022-2027.
