The new “Big Three” of the 3D bioprinting industry

Published in Bioprinting.

Segment consolidating around BICO, 3D Systems and Desktop Health; exploring new materials and opportunities

Just like industrial additive manufacturing, the bioprinting industry lives on extreme ups and downs. The ups bring new enthusiasm and innovation, and the downs bring back the reality of how complex it is for any new industrial segment to emerge into a real commercial opportunity. At the same time, the down periods often hide key trends that silently feed the next growth cycle, with new players emerging as technological and market leaders. That’s more or less what has been happening lately in bioprinting, with three key companies, BICO, 3D Systems and Desktop Metal (yes, Desktop Metal, via the recently formed Desktop Health) emerging as leaders, even as dozens of smaller companies and startups continue to bring innovation to the table.
