The Flow Chemistry market is driven by rising demand in sustainable equipments, energy savings devices as well by safe and flexible processes. The continuous demand for flow devices caters to wide range of applications in the chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries. The market is estimated at $709.85 million in 2012 and expected to reach $1,216.1 million by 2018 growing at CAGR of 9.4%. The major devices discussed in the report are Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors (CSTR), Plug Flow Reactors (PFR), Micro reactor systems (MRT), Microwave systems and others. Out of all devices, MRT systems market is estimated to grow by 22.8% till 2018.

The report discusses the MRT market by revenue on the basis of type of reactor. The various types of reactors discussed are chip or plate based, capillary based and microstructure or Millistructure based. The various materials included are glass, silicon, stainless steel, polymers, ceramics and other metals.

The market for MRT systems is driven by the fact that they have a lot of energy saving potentials and are safe in operation as reactions takes place inside the micro channels itself.

Also the systems can be used for manufacturing of bio diesels. The threats for the MRT systems are from CSTR and PFR itself as they can be used for large scale production.
At present China is the largest market for continuous flow reactors due to growing industrialization in the region. Europe is the largest buyers of flow reactors due to presence of strong customer base in region. All the major companies in the chemicals and pharmaceuticals business are located here.

The global Flow Chemistry market is growing at a significant pace due to changing economics and rising energy prices. The MRT systems, which is one of the important type of flow reactors is expected to grow at 22.8% CAGR till 2018 to reach $55.8 million. Europe is the largest market for almost all reactors except for Microwave systems. The major restrains identified for the MRT systems market are related to the cost of these systems. The cost of these systems are much high at present, but have high potentials in energy savings and flexibility.

The global continuous market was estimated to reach $1,216.11 million by 2018, with majority of share taken by CSTR and PFR modules. Micro wave systems market though larger in size at present as compared to MRT systems can only be used for lab scale production due to technical limitations. The microwave systems market was estimated to reach $361.33 million by 2018 growing at 9.5% CAGR.

U.S. is the largest buyer of micro wave systems due to ongoing lab scale projects here. The major companies in the micro wave systems market are Milestone SLR, CEM Corporation and Cambrex Corporation. CEM Corporation is the market leader in the microwave systems market.

India, China and Middle East are the upcoming markets for continuous flow reactors due to huge infrastructures in chemicals and pharmaceuticals are already present here.
