The future outlook of 3D bioprinting is significant particularly in biomedicine for the creation of personalized medicine, drug screening, tissue replacement and future organ transplant. In the area of green technology, bioprinted algae have potential applications in bioremediation and providing sustainable environmental solutions in various industries. In addition, there are other non-traditional applications that would greatly benefit from the precision and automation tools provided in bioprinting technology. These applications have the potential to impact an incredible range of consumer and medical products.
