Microfluidics is a set of technologies that deal with the movement of small amounts of fluid. The field has been developing for more than two decades, but most of the early development, while intense, was in isolated modules. More recently, scientists have been putting the pieces together into systems, leading to new applications and rapid market growth.

This report covers the major markets and applications for microfluidics-based products and technologies. The current state of the market as defined is assessed, and projections for growth and advancements in technology along with market trends are detailed.

The major objectives of this report are:

  • To provide a thorough evaluation of the technical and business environment surrounding the emerging microfluidic systems market.
  • To review the technologies, the related sub-technologies and alternative technologies in light of the emerging needs of the relevant markets.
  • To examine the current and potential applications of microfluidic technologies and assess their importance in the context of emerging market paradigms.
  • To describe the spectrum of microfluidics-related products currently on the market and in development.
  • To provide an overview of the current microfluidics market in terms of scale and competitive structure.
  • To assess the future of the microfluidics market in terms of growth potential for various product and application segments.
  • To examine the trends that will shape the future of microfluidics technologies and markets, and to examine their impacts.

The report is intended especially for entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know where the microfluidics market is headed in the next five years. Other readers who should find the report particularly valuable include MEMS marketing executives and government officials associated with the National Nanotechnology Initiative and other state-level programs to promote the development of the nanotechnology injury. The report’s findings and conclusions should also be of interest to the broader nanotechnology community.

This report addresses the global market for microfluidics devices and applications, from 2011 (base year) through 2017. Microfluidic devices are defined, in general terms, as devices that handle very small (e.g., micro- or nanoliter) volumes of fluids.

The study format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary.
  • Definitions.
  • Microfluidic components and systems.
  • Microfluidic fabrication technologies
  • Major end-user markets and applications.
  • Global microfluidic market trends, 2011–2017.
  • Industry structure, market shares and ownership trends.
  • Factors that will influence the long-term development of microfluidic technologies.


METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES

Projecting the market for emerging technologies such as microfluidic technologies, whose commercial potential has not yet been proven, is a challenging task. This report uses a multi-phase approach to identify the technologies with the greatest commercial potential and quantify the market for these applications, as described below.

In the first phase of the analysis, we identified a “long list” of microfluidic technologies (including technologies that are still under development) and mapped them against potential applications and end-user industries, such as life sciences research, drug discovery and medical diagnostics.

In the second phase, we eliminated those technologies that appear to have little likelihood of making it into commercial production in the next five years, through a literature review and statements by industry sources. The result of phase two was a “short list” of technologies and applications with the greatest near- to mid-term commercial potential.

The third phase focused on quantifying the potential market for each short-listed technology and application and identifying the main prerequisites for commercial success. Various methodologies and data sources were used to develop the market projections, including trend line projections, input-output analysis and estimates of future demand from industry sources.
