DUBLIN, September 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "3D Cell Culture Technologies Patent Landscape" report to their offering.
The patent landscape related to 3D cell technologies is very open, involving important academic applicants as well as small companies. It includes over 2,500 patent families and involves over 1,000 patent applicants.
In 2015, the 3D cell culture market was valued at $725 million and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 30.6% between 2015 and 2020. Surprisingly, while many companies provide products dedicated to 3D cell culture on the market, these companies don't appear among the main patent applicants in the IP side of the domain. In fact, the Top-10 of the main assignees owns less than 10% of the whole patent families and no patent assignee is taking over the 3D cell culture domain. This finding indicates that the IP landscape and market for 3D cell culture are currently structuring and should both evolve in the coming years.
Cell culture in two dimensions is widely used for various applications, from fundamental research to biomedical applications. However, this type of culture doesn't reproduce the natural physiological microenvironment of a cell or an organ. Going from two to three dimensions allows the culture conditions to get closer to the true in vivo environment of the cells and 3D cell culture models are becoming more and more popular.
