3D cell culture is a man-made environment which is created to allow cells to grow and interact with the surroundings in all three dimensions. It is an advanced cell culture technique that overcomes limitations of 2D cell culture in terms of cellular characteristics and behavior. 3D cell culture is better suited to study disease models by cellular modeling different disease states. Research laboratories and institutes, hospitals, and biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are adopting 3D cell culture for better outputs and the adoption rate is posed to increase rapidly in the near future. Rising investment in 3D cell culture development, increasing research related activities, rising demand for organ transplantation, and 3D cell culture’s ability to replace animal in research and pharmaceutical testing drive growth of the 3D cell culture market. However, budgetary constraints faced by small and medium-sized laboratories and lack of consistency in 3D cell culture products are key restraints for the market.

Europe dominates the 3D cell culture market. The U.K. represents the largest market for 3D cell culture in the region. This is due to rising investment in 3D cell culture market, increasing research related activities, and 3D cell culture’s ability to replace the animal in research and pharmaceutical testing.

3D cell culture refers to a process of growing cell culture in a 3D environment. It provides a 3D view of the cells grown which helps to analyze cell culture in a better way. 3D cell culture accurately stimulates normal cell morphology, proliferation, differentiation, and migrations and thus, is better suited to study disease models by cellular modeling different disease states. Globally, the 3D cell culture market is witnessing significant growth due rising investments by major players in the market, increasing research related activities, and rising demand for organ transplantation. Moreover, 3D cell culture’s ability to replace the animal in research and pharmaceutical testing is also driving the growth of the market. However, factors such as budgetary constraints faced by small and medium-sized laboratories and lack of consistency in 3D cell culture products are restraining the growth of the global 3D cell culture market. The global 3D cell culture market was valued at US$ 586.1 Mn in 2014 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 29.1% to account for US$ 2,717.6 Mn by 2020.

Europe has the largest market for 3D cell culture. Extracellular matrices or scaffolds are the largest segments in the overall 3D cell culture market. On the basis of the end user, biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries dominate the 3D cell culture market. The Europe 3D cell culture market was valued at US$ 234.4 Mn in 2014 and is expected to account for US$ 1,067.8 Mn by 2020 at a CAGR of 28.7%. One of the latest trends that have been observed in the 3D cell culture market is increasing usage of laboratory automation for 3D cell culturing.
