The 3D cell culture technologies market consist of sales of 3D cell culture technologies and related services. Some of the 3D cell culture technologies include microfluidics, hydrogels scaffolds, scaffold-free 3D cell culture techniques, spheroids, cube, spherical droplet, stacked plate, magnetic bead, organ-on-chips and other technologies. The 3D cell culture technologies market does not include sales of cell culture consumables and instruments. This market is segmented into scaffold based, scaffold-free technologies and 3D bioreactors.
The global 3d cell culture technologies market is expected to grow from $1.6 billion in 2019 to $2 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.8%. The growth of this market is mainly due to the increase rates of experiments related to COVID 19 to understand the nature and its virologic effects on human beings. 3D cells culture technologies are greatly used in these trials and helps in understanding the coronavirus. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 25% from 2021 and reach $3.9 billion in 2023.
