The microfluidics market is witnessing tremendous growth owing to the growth in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology research funding and government participation and support through funding and corporate investments, globally. However, high prices of microfluidics-based genomic and proteomic analysis platforms and lack of proper healthcare and research infrastructure in emerging markets are restraining the growth of the global market to a certain extent. The Microfluidics market is expected to reach $7.5 Billion by 2020 from $3.1 Billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 19.3%.

North America is the largest regional segment of the global market, followed by Europe. The large share of this region can be attributed to the highly developed healthcare system, presence of leading market players for microfluidics, and several stem cell and cell-based research programs initiated by the government. However, the Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market owing to factors such as increasing geriatric population, rising incidences of lifestyle diseases, growing R&D expenditure, and rapidly growing healthcare industry.

The global microfluidics market is highly fragmented and new university startups and acquisition of small microfluidics players having high potential products is further intensifying competition. However, most of the companies are strategically aiming on developing microfluidics products in their specialized areas such as diagnostics, proteomics and genomics, and drug delivery. The high competitiveness is expected to further drive innovation in the market, thereby helping the industry to evolve and solve existing challenges.

Major players in the global market include Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Becton, Dickinson and Company (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), and PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.).

Scope of the Report

Microfluidics is defined as the science of designing, fabricating, and formulating products and processes that deal with low volumes of fluids in the range of nanoliters or picoliters. The technology has evolved from MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems) devices and can replicate all the functions of its counterparts in various healthcare applications, such as drug delivery, point-of-care (POC) testing, and clinical diagnostics.

This market is mainly driven by the rising demand for point-of-care (POC) testing, increasing demand for microfluidic chip miniaturization as it offers lower testing time and improved portability, growing Asian market, rising incidences of lifestyle diseases, increasing R&D expenditure and healthcare spending, and growing stem cell and cancer research. However, complex and time-consuming regulatory approval process, high cost of integrated instruments and microfluidic sensors, and lack of market visibility for microfluidics products are inhibiting the growth of this market to a certain extent.

The global microfluidics market is segmented on the basis of materials and applications. On the basis of materials, the market is categorized into polymer-based microfluidics, glass-based microfluidics, silicon-based microfluidics, and other material-based microfluidics. On the basis of applications, the microfluidics market is divided into pharmaceutical research, in vitro diagnostics, and drug delivery. The pharmaceutical research segment is further segmented into lab analytics (cell-based assays, proteomic analysis, genomic analysis, and capillary electrophoresis), dispensing, and microreaction. The in vitro diagnostics application segment is further divided into clinical diagnostics, point-of-care testing, environmental testing, industrial testing, and agro food testing. The drug delivery application segment is divided into inhalers, microneedles, and micropumps.

On the basis of regions, this market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW), which is further analyzed at country levels. The research report discusses the key market drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities in the global market and its submarkets.

In 2014, the in vitro diagnostics application segment accounted for the largest share of the global microfluidics market, primarily owing to the rising incidences of chronic diseases, growing demand for point-of-care testing, and rising aging population.

North America accounted for the largest share in 2014, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW. The Asia-Pacific region represents the fastest-growing market for microfluidics products, primarily due to the increasing R&D and healthcare expenditure and growth in the overall healthcare industry. In addition, increasing investments in the healthcare industry by key market players, rising demand for cutting-edge technologies, and expansion of private sector hospitals to rural areas in countries such as China, Taiwan, and India are driving the growth of this region.

The market is highly fragmented with the presence of several large and small market players. Major players in the global microfluidics market are Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.), Agilent Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), and Becton, Dickinson and Company (U.S.).
