Research and Markets: Global Bio-Printing Markets Report: A Ten Year Opportunity Forecast

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ng9x2h/bioprinting) has announced the addition of the "Bio-Printing Markets: A Ten Year Opportunity Forecast" report to their offering.

Bio-printing is a young but emerging field of study, whose ramifications are increasingly commercial. Promises of 3D-printed organs may catch the attention of the media, but the time has come for the wider market to take notice as well. More imminent applications of bio-printing technology will drive growth and galvanize bio-printing into a real industry over the next decade. This industry will require dedicated hardware, software, and materials that suite its needs, and present considerable revenue opportunities.

This report identifies the current state of the bio-printing sector though an analysis of processes, software, and materials employed by the industry. More than simply an industry survey, this report focuses on the strategies employed in the bio-printing market through an analysis of key players. Readers of the report will gain an understanding of the dynamics of the industry as it stands today, as well as a framework for contextualizing new developments.

This report will provide invaluable guidance for material, software, and equipment manufacturing companies in the bio-medical industry, 3D printing industry, and other related sectors. This report will also interest specialty chemical firms, cell culturers, and forward-thinking medical professionals, clinics and laboratories. We also think that this report will prove to be required reading for investors in the budding bio-printing sector.
