Bioprinting Markets and Opportunities Report 2022: Bioprinting Industry Revenues to Reach Almost $1.2 Billion by 2028

The “Bioprinting: Markets and Opportunities” report has been added to‘s offering.

Revenues from bioprinting are expected to reach almost $1.2 billion in 2028, compared with just $182 million today. By 2028, the analyst expects almost 70 percent of the bioprinting industry to come from applications and service revenues. The new report, “Bioprinting: Markets and Opportunities”, claims that we are many years from transplanting printed organs. Nonetheless, bioprinting is finding a rapidly growing application in drug and cosmetics testing. Using printed tissues and organs avoids the need for animal testing and enables testing on printed tissue and organs that are realistic substitutes for the real thing.

Report Highlights

Production-grade bioprinters and reproducible bioprinting applications are coming to the fore. By 2031, R&D service revenues will clock up almost $250 million in service/applications revenue for bioprinting, but this will still only amount to 12 percent of total service/applications revenues in the bioprinting industry.

The analyst expects technological innovation across the entire bioprinting sector to accelerate. The new report points to three developments in particular as areas of strong commercial potential. One of these is the arrival of organs-on-a-chip, a product class that bioprinting does much to enable. The report also predicts that bioprinters will move beyond the currently dominant extrusion and inkjet machines. Already as many as 20 novel ways of doing bioprinting are emerging from leading labs and healthcare facilities worldwide.

While extrusion and inkjet bioprinters will account for well over 90 percent of bioprinter revenues in 2022, but by 2031, 15 percent of bioprinter revenues will come from printers based on entirely novel printing technologies.
Another technical trend that is leading bioprinting forward technologically and will improve costs to patients and expand capabilities is the trend toward next-generation bioprinting platforms that have greater capacities, automate much of the work, and integrate medical functionality well beyond basic bioprinting. By 2031 the analyst expects production grade bioprinters or biomanufacturing platforms incorporating bioprinting to clock up around $100 million in revenues.
