Lack of insufficient organ donor is one of the high impacts rendering factor to drive demand for scaffold technology. Application of biomimetic tissue constructs to reproduce 3D organotypic structure has convinced large number of research entities to adopt scaffold technology for organoid generation in order to enhance transplantation procedures.

Scaffold technologies have shown potential in fulfilling the purpose of tissues engineering to restore and maintain the function of damaged organs. Increase in demand for in vitro tissue constructs that provide co-ordination of multiple cellular processes such as transportation of nutrients, mechanical stability, is expected to drive the progress of scaffold technology market. In order to accomplish proper transplantation procedures, researchers have invested efforts for development of scaffolds as matrices/support for proper insertion of the tissue substitutes in the patient’s body, which is expected to fuel growth over the forecast period.

Which factor is restraining the demand for the market?

Ethical Concerns Pertaining to Animals

Ethical concerns surrounding the use of animals, particularly bovine fetuses, in cell culture processes have emerged as a significant issue within the Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) market. The reliance on bovine fetal serum for cell culture poses ethical dilemmas due to the intense suffering inflicted on the animals during the blood collection process. The inhumanity of extracting blood from the fetus's heart without anesthesia has raised ethical alarms among scientists and manufacturers alike, prompting calls for alternative and more humane sourcing methods.

The heightened awareness of these ethical concerns has catalyzed regulatory actions and government interventions aimed at controlling the use of animal-derived products in cell culture. Governments, including the U.S., have implemented stringent regulations to address the ethical implications of using living organisms in research and commercial applications.
