3D Bioprinting Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global 3D Bioprinting market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 21.2% between 2022 to 2027 and be worth USD 1724 million by 2027 from USD 543.9 million in 2022.

3D bioprinting is a process that aims at creating biomedical parts imitating the nature of tissue-like structures in the body used in the process of tissue engineering. 3D printing uses cells, biomaterials, and growth factors to fabricate these biomedical parts. layers and layers of bio-inks are used to create tissue-like structures. 3D bioprinting can be used to print organs and tissues for treatments, drug research, and transplants, and to create scaffold material used to regenerate tissues and ligaments. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the global 3D bioprinting market:

The COVID-19 pandemic leads to more R&D to counter the SARS-CoV-2 virus and find a cure in the form of vaccines and drugs for the deadly pandemic. The emergency lockdown situations lead to difficulty in obtaining much equipment, especially in the healthcare sector. The 3D bioprinting helped with this crisis. the 3D printing assisted with producing more covid-19 test swabs, respiratory devices, ventilators, and face shields, all of which were scarce during the pandemic. 

COVID-19 has accelerated the growth rate of the 3D bioprinting market.

Along with the production of equipment, the 3D printing technology helped print the lung tissues, which supported the virus's growth for researchers to study the virus better. Thus, the pandemic benefitted the market for 3D bioprinting. However, as the research activities became more focused on covid-19, the other research subjects were side-lined, and so were the issues of 3D bioprinting. In addition, ever since the impact of covid-19, it has become more critical to conduct drug testing to ensure the safety of the consumers, which has positively impacted the market.


The technological advancements drive the 3D bioprinting market along with increased research and development and government funding in the area.

The scarcity of organ donors, the rising geriatric population, and chronic diseases that need organ transplantation are driving the 3D bioprinting market growth. It was mentioned in, each day 17 people die waiting for an organ transplant. Additionally, the production of medicinal equipment and several support products during the COVID-19 pandemic led the market to grow further. Furthermore, the rising acceptance and application of 3D bioprinting technologies in cosmetology and pharmaceuticals are expected to promote market growth.

The increasing demand for 3D bioprinting in the healthcare industry drives market growth.

The requirement for more complex organ transplants like heart, kidneys, and lungs are pushing the market forward. However, it is a known fact that there is a chance of the body's immune system rejecting an organ transplant when taken from another body. Still, the chances of rejection become very low when an organ transplant occurs through a 3D printing method with biomedical parts. In addition, the healthcare industry requires a 3D rating in cases of bone fractures where tissue engineering is required. Therefore, the need for the advancement of 3D printing in the healthcare industry is one of the other primary factors for the market's growth.


However, the complexity of the 3D bioprinting procedure and the high costs of production and management associated with the field, along with a lack of skilled and knowledgeable professionals in the study, will prove to be a hindrance to the market.
