Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst product type, microfluidic chips category to hold significant share during the forecast period”

Based on type, the microfluidics market is segmented into microfluidic-based devices and microfluidic components. The microfluidic components are further segmented into microfluidic chips, micro pumps, microneedles, and others. Among these, microfluidic chips accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that they will grow rapidly during the projected timeframe as these are used for drug screening to increase the efficiency of screening and reduce costs. Furthermore, PCR carried out on a microfluidic chip offers benefits such as speed, parallelization, and sensitivity. For instance, in October 2022, X9 Real-Time PCR System was launched by Standard BioTools, Inc., using microfluidics technology to provide a flexible and productive high-capacity genomics platform.

“Amongst material, the PDMS to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of material, the market is fragmented into polymer, silicon, glass, PDMS, and others. The PDMS category is to witness significant adoption of microfluidics during the forecast period. PDMS is a polymer that is frequently used in microfluidics because it provides many benefits including nontoxicity, resilience, optical clarity, permeability to gas and oxygen, biocompatibility, elastomeric characteristics, low-cost, and the ability to stack several layers for complicated designs of microfluidic devices.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, North America held a significant share of the global microfluidics market. This is mainly due to the presence of established market participants in the area, the development of cutting-edge technologies, an increase in the number of studies chosen to better sample optimization, and the sizeable demand for POC diagnostics. Additionally, the active involvement of research institutes in the creation of novel microfluidic devices is anticipated to maintain the region’s dominance in the next years. For instance, in March 2022, NCATS collaborated with the U.S. FDA and other NIH institutes to design human tissue chips that precisely model the structure and function of human organs, including the heart, liver, and lungs. This initiative was expected to help predict drug safety in humans more effectively and rapidly.
