Thermo Fisher was the leading player in the 3D cell culture market in 2016. The company’s leading position is primarily attributed to its strong brand image and product portfolio. Thermo Fisher constantly focuses on strengthening its product portfolio. For instance, in 2014, the company introduced Nunclon Sphera, a polymer-coated cell culture surface with low-binding characteristics, which supports the growth of 3D cancer spheroids and embryoid bodies. The company has a strong presence in over 100 countries across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa.
Corning was the second-largest leading player in the global 3D cell culture market in 2016. The leading position of the company is attributed to its robust product portfolio which includes scaffold-based and scaffold-free products. To maintain its strong position in the market, the company focuses on adopting organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansions, agreements, partnerships, and collaborations.
