BOSTON, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After over 15 years of research and development in academia and industry, several main applications of 3D bioprinting technology are ready to be realised. In IDTechEx's new report titled 3D Bioprinting 2017 – 2027: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts, the global 3D bioprinting market is predicted to experience a period of high growth to reach a size of $1.8 billion by the year 2027.
IDTechEx report 3D Bioprinting 2017 – 2027: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts contextualises recent industry activities, and discusses the key drivers of the 3D bioprinting industry as well as providing insight into the market trends observed.
One such market trend is the increasing versatility of 3D bioprinters. Users can now easily incorporate several 3D bioprinting technologies into their construct without involving a second or third machine. IDTechEx's new report profiles and benchmarks the four main 3D bioprinting technologies of inkjet, extrusion, laser-induced forward transfer, and microvalve printheads. The report details key specifications, technology subtypes, and includes a SWOT analysis of each printhead technology.
Current and future applications of 3D bioprinting covered in 3D Bioprinting 2017 – 2027: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts include the testing of cosmetics and other consumer goods, drug screening for the pharmaceutical industry, personalised medicine, regenerative medicine, cell-based biosensors, food and other animal products, education, academic research and bionics.
The recent increase in interest and excitement for 3D bioprinting bodes well for the future. IDTechEx forecasts that the overall 3D bioprinting market is set to reach $1.8 billion by the year 2027. This is driven by demand for both 3D bioprinters, and 3D bioprinted tissues, and additional 10-year forecasts for these product markets are included in the report. Though regenerative medicine is not expected to be a significant market within the next 10 years, it has and will be a major influence on the 3D bioprinting market. As such, a separate chapter of the report is dedicated to discussing the future for 3D bioprinting in regenerative medicine.
Readers of this new report by IDTechEx will gain a comprehensive view of the technologies, applications and markets of 3D bioprinting. Insights and knowledge of the industry were obtained through primary interviews with key stakeholders in 3D bioprinting companies, and these interviews also form the basis of the company profiles included at the end of the report.
