Chapter 1: Introduction

Study Goals and Objectives
BCC Research’s goal in conducting this study was to update the status of the three-dimensional (3D) cell culture market and assess its growth potential over the five-year period from 2016 to 2021. Particular focus was placed on understanding the current market adoption and analyzing drivers for increasing this in terms of both scope (more applications) and maturity, in terms of more common platforms, collaboration with regulators and the emergence of standards. In addition, BCC Research was interested in understanding the impact of these methods on different research sectors, specifically cancer, toxicology and safety testing; liver and metabolic research; and stem cell proliferation and differentiation.

Reasons for Doing the Study
Three-dimensional cell culture has been used by researchers for many years now, with early adoption and now key roles in cancer and stem cells. Furthermore, classical toxicology testing programs have been in place for many decades, and over the past 20 years, animal welfare and scientific activities have spurred the development of in vitro testing methods. This report details the recent key technical advances in 3D cell culture equipment, raw materials, assay kits, analytical methods and clinical research organization (CRO) services. Many suppliers provide equipment, assays, cells, reagents and services used in 3D cell culture, and this study sought to understand business models and market maturity dynamics in greater depth.

Scope of Report
The scope of the report encompasses the major types of 3D cell culture that have been used, as well as the major applications being developed by industry, academic researchers and their commercialization offices, and government agencies. It analyzes current market status, examines future market drivers and
presents forecasts of growth over the next five years. Technology developments, including the latest trends, are discussed. Other influential factors such as screening strategies for pharmaceuticals have also been included.

Intended Audience
This report is designed to satisfy the information needs of a wide variety of individuals involved in the cancer, other drug discovery, stem cell, predictive toxicology and in vitro marketplaces, including company senior management executives seeking to base their strategic decisions on the latest insights into market forces and application trends. It is also aimed at managers and executives in product research and development, particularly those responsible for bringing new products to market.
