Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Scaffold Technology market size is expected to be worth around US$ 1.92 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Scaffold Technology market size was valued at US$ 968 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.04% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The market is driven by a high demand for body reconstruction procedures and a rise in organ transplantations globally. The biomimetic tissue constructs designed by scaffold technology generate 3D organotypic structure, which improves the transplantation processes, consequently boosting the organic revenue growth of the market.

The commercial success of 3D cell culture over the 2D culture system for histological analysis and drug screening purposes has provided lucrative growth avenues for scaffold technology used during 3D cell culturing. 

The broadening horizon of scaffold technology in drug development procedures fuels the market progression. The continual attrition rate in drug development caused due to the inability of monolayer cell culture paves a path for the adoption of scaffold-based cultures that efficiently mimic the disease-causing microenvironment. 

The use of biomatrix with incorporated nanoparticles for drug delivery and tissue repair is expected to have a high success rate in the near future. The combination of biomaterials and an emerging concept useful in cell delivery and tissue construction, which positively impacts the revenue generation in this application. In addition, the presence of supportive organizations, such as the International Society for Stem Cell Research, boosts the demand for 3D scaffolds in this application.

Report Highlights

The hydrogels segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 42% in 2019. This is attributed to the properties related to the application of hydrogels, such as the ease of loading drugs and cells for controlled drug delivery. In recent years, hydrogels have gained demand as a leading candidate in 3D cell cultivation and tissue engineering. Ongoing technological advancements in the microfabrication of hydrogels are expected to boost revenue generation in this segment.

The nanofiber-based scaffolds segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The nanoscale fibrous structures with interconnecting pores designed by the electrospinning technique facilitate the formation of artificial functional tissues during tissue engineering. These artificial tissues resemble the natural extracellular matrix in tissues, thus enhancing tissue engineering by providing a similar extracellular matrix of living tissues.

The stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering application segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 66% in 2019 and is expected to witness the fastest growth from 2020 to 2027. High usage of scaffolds in wound healing, aesthetic surgeries, soft tissue tumor repair, abdominal wall repair, periodontology, and colorectal surgeries boost the revenue generation in this segment.

In addition, the combination of an antimicrobial agent with a tissue repair scaffold to enhance the regeneration process is expected to improve plastic and reconstructive procedures, which involve a high risk of loss of repaired tissue due to infection. The development of computational topology design and solid freeform fabrication has enabled the designing of tissue-engineering scaffolds with controlled architecture, which contributes to the growth of this segment.

In terms of revenue, the orthopedics, musculoskeletal, and spine segment held the largest revenue share of 55% in 2019 owing to the rise in the incidence of musculoskeletal and orthopedic complications.

A combination of cell therapy, drug delivery, and electrospun nanofiber scaffolds has potential in regeneration and repairing of orthopedic tissues. Topographic cues offered by these nanofibers have significantly improved the migration, adhesion, differentiation, and proliferation of cells. Thereby, the advent of new technologies, such as electrospun nanofiber scaffolds manufactured for the engineering of orthopedic tissues, further propels the segment growth.

The neurology segment is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to continuous R&D in regenerative solutions for neurological disorders. The researchers from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Institute of Engineering in Medicine developed a spinal cord with the help of 3D printed scaffolds as reported in January 2019. The spinal cord was loaded with neural stem cells and promotes the growth of stem cells during spinal cord injuries.

Biotechnology and pharmaceutical organizations captured the largest revenue share of 47% in 2019 due to a wide application of scaffold technology in drug discovery protocols, especially in drug screening and target validation of therapeutics.

The hospitals and diagnostic centers segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing end-use segment during the forecast period. A rise in the number of grafting procedures, coupled with road accidents and related injury cases, consequently increases the demand for biological scaffolds in hospitals. Several hospitals offer scaffold-based treatment for cardiovascular and dental surgeries, which subsequently supplements the revenue generated by this segment.

North America dominated the market with a revenue share of 41% in 2019. This can be attributed to an increase in regenerative medicine and stem cell research, a developed healthcare framework, and a rise in investments to expand the applications of these technologies.

Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest CAGR in the forecast period owing to the presence of government agencies that focus on regenerative medicine and stem cell research.
