4D Bioprinting Market, Type of Technology, 2024-2035 (USD Million)


The concept of 3D printing has been one of the biggest revolutions across the globe. Various industry stakeholders and academicians have undertaken several initiatives to further develop / improve this technology for a variety of applications. One such application area is 3D bioprinting that includes the printing of living cells and enables the development of highly complex tissues that mimic the structure and performance ability of desired organ, within the body. 3D bioprinting results in the printing of an exact replica of primary human organs; however, the printed 3D objects are inert and static in nature and are unable to change shape when subjected to environmental changes. 4D bioprinting makes this possible.

4D bioprinting refers to the incorporation of a fourth dimension that enables these structures to change their shape with time. The additional element in the bioprinting technology that enables the fourth dimension, includes application of smart materials, which have the tendency to morph in the presence of stimuli (such as, heat, water, light, electricity, magnetic energy, stress, strain, and pressure). In addition to the ability to morph, these 4D printed structures have the ability to self-repair and can adapt to various environmental changes. This technology, though, is currently associated with several challenges; these include printing the existing stimuli-responsive materials and optimizing them with bio-inks. Assembling and folding deformations in 4D printed structures is also quite demanding.
