4D Bioprinting Market Insights
The global 4D bioprinting market will grow at a high growth rate between the forecast period (2020-2026). 4D printing is an upgraded version of 3D printing in which a physical object is created using a blueprint. However, in 4D printing, the formed 3D object gets transformed into different shapes and sizes when exposed to pre-determined stimulus or energy such as heat, pressure, ultraviolet rays, or other energy sources. For this, 4D printers require special printing material which can self-transform on getting exposed to an external energy source.
Factors such as rapidly increasing technological advancements in healthcare sectors and growing research on 4D printers for potential application is prevailing 4D printers market in the healthcare sector. Wide areas of application ranging from chemotherapy, tissue engineering to biomaterials of human scale are boosting the overall 4D printers market. Increasing investment of various companies for 4D printer manufacturing and shift of interest of consumers from 3D to 4D printer is expected to show the largest market in the forecast period.
However, high production costs, hazards associated with the safety of the product, and strict government regulatory norms are the key parameters hindering the overall 4D printing market.
4D Bioprinting Market: By Type of Component
Based on the type of component, the market is segmented into programmable materials [living cells, hydrogels, and shape-memory materials] 3D bioprinting equipment, and software & service.
The software & services segment is expected to grow at the highest growth rate in the forecast year due to the diverse range of 4D technology applications in prototyping development and to change shape and size. However 4D printing process requires fully supporting software, which is still under development as the technology is at its initial stage.
Programmable materials are the most recent and advanced segment of 4D printing which involves cells or biocompatible responsive materials as printed objects which are capable of transforming its function or shape when exposed to external stimulus. This technology has widened the 4D bioprinting market and the most favored market if of drug delivery and tissue engineering which make this segment grow at the fastest rate, especially in developing countries.
4D Bioprinting Market: By Type of Technology
Based on technology type, the market is segmented into fused deposition modeling, polyjet, stereolithography, and selective laser sintering.
Fused deposition modeling is expected to bring the largest share in the coming years however polyjet is the most promising segment for the highest growth in the projected period. The reason behind polyjet market is the technology is capable of producing any complex structure with detailing and features. Technology offers products in different shapes and colors with a reduction in material wastage due to the high precision of deposited material.
4D Bioprinting Market: By Application
Based on application, biomedical application, patient-specific implants, and research models. The medical and research segment which involve both hospital and research laboratories are accounted to be the largest shareholder segment. The model manufactured in research and medical laboratories can be customized based on the patient pathology which reduces both time and cost. 4D printers are capable of manufacturing smart medical model which can transform both the medical sector and the overall 4D printing market in coming years.
Targeted drug delivery and organ transplant is another 4D printing application in medical and dental clinics which is emerging as a booster to the overall 4D printing market.
4D Bioprinting Market: By End User
Given by the end-users, the market is divided into dental clinics and labs, hospital laboratories, and research & academic institute.
Dental clinics are expected to grow at the highest end-user segment in the projected year due to increasing demand for 4D printers in dental implants which act as soft support to prevent tooth injuries.
Research and academic institutes are always among the hot area of the 4D printing market due to increase investment from the government and rising 4D printing based start-ups are expected to accelerate its overall market in the coming years.
4D Bioprinting Market: By Region
Based on the region, the market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and Central & South America. The North American region will dominate the global 4D bioprinting market between the forecast period. The rising demand for organ transplants and growing technological innovation in the region are the prime factors supporting the market growth.
Asia-Pacific is another region that is estimated to follow the North America market trend in the forecast period. Advancement in technology and growing investment in new products by the government are triggering its market-leading to generate immense opportunities for 4D printing start-ups. However high investment cost remains to be the biggest challenge for the market.
