Market Introduction

3D cell culture is an in-vitro practice where the cells are cultivated in a simulated environment. This practice enables the normal cell to migrate, flourish and to differentiate through interacting with their three-dimensional surroundings. 3D cell culture provides a suitable environment for analytical studies, which includes the assessment of multi-stage disease models through cellular modelling. They are primarily used in the field of tissue engineering and drug discovery. 3D cell culture has proven to possess the functionality similar to that of natural cells, due to which they find wide application in cancer research.

Market Dynamics

Rising incidences of cancer is one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the 3D cell culture market at present. According to National Cancer Institute, deaths due to cancer in the U.S. is expected to touch more than 600,000 people in 2018. Common types of cancer prevalent in the U.S include breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, and liver cancer among others. Further, 2016 witnessed per capita cigarette consumption of more 1050. According to Insights and Reports, the tobacco industry in the U.S. was valued at US$ 117 billion in 2017. High consumption of tobacco is one of the key factors that has resulted in such as high prevalence of cancer in the country. According to Insights and Reports, more than 18 million people in the U.S. suffer from diseases caused due to the consumption of tobacco. These factors are heavily responsible for the growth of 3D cell culture market in the country.

Further, rising demand for organ transplant is another major factor fuelling the demand for 3D cell culture market at present. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 34,770 organ transplants were performed in the U.S. in 2017 and more than 114,000 residents in the country are waiting to have their organs transplanted as of April 2018.

However, factors such as limited number of skilled and experienced professionals, lack of proper infrastructure in the under developed and developing economies, budget limitation in small and medium scale laboratories are responsible for the slowdown of the market at present.

Market Segmentation and Analysis

Based on product type, the global 3D cell culture market has been segmented into scaffold based platforms, bioreactors, gels, scaffold free platforms, microchips and services. Scaffold based platforms are further segmented into microfluidic, 3D reactors, hanging drop plates, and 3D pertridishes among others.

Based on application, the market has been segmented into cancer and biotechnology research, drug discovery, screening and development, stem cell application, 3D printing microfluidics, tissue engineering and re-generative medicines. Cancer and biotechnology research is expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period due to rising prevalence of cancer across the globe and sufficient funding for cancer research from public and private organizations.

Based on end-user, the market has been segmented into hospitals and diagnostic centers, research laboratories, academic institutes, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies among others.

Geographical Outlook

North America and Europe led the 3D cell culture market in 2016 and is expected to retail market dominance throughout the forecast period as well. High prevalence of cancer in these regions coupled with high investment in research and development by the private as well as public organizations are the key factors supporting the high growth of the market at present. According to Insights and Reports, the EU-28 witnessed more than 1.3 million people reported to have died from cancer, which also equaled to approximately 25% of the total deaths that occurred in the region in that year. Death due to cancer were higher among the male population, accounting for more than 30%, while the female population accounted for less than 23%. Denmark, Netherlands, Ireland and Slovenia showed a higher incidence of deaths due to cancer that other countries in the EU-28 region.

Asia Pacific is expected to project the fastest growth during the forecast period on account of rising spending on healthcare spending by the populace in the region. Further, improving healthcare facilities in the key countries such as India, China and Japan among others are greatly pushing the market growth for 3D cell culture in the region. According to Insights and Reports, per capita healthcare spending in India amounted to approximately US$ 98.41 in 2017, up from US$ 46.54 in 2008, marking a 9% growth annually from 2008-2017. This signifies the high growth in healthcare spending in the country. Further, according to the America Cancer Society, more than 2.8 million deaths due to cancer occurred in China in 2015, with lung cancer being the most common type of cancer leading to the deaths. These factors are expected to continue pushing the market growth of 3D cell culture in Asia Pacific, making it the fastest growing region.
