Microfluidics Market Segmentation:
In this report, the microfluidics market is segmented based on application, component, material, and region. On the basis of application, the market is broadly segmented into in vitro diagnostics (point-of-care testing and clinical diagnostics), pharmaceutical & life science research (lab analytics, microdispensing, and microreactions), drug delivery, and laboratory tesing (agro food testing, industrial testing, and environmental testing).
In vitro diagnostics segment is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. Growth in this market segment can be attributed to the rising geriatric population and subsequent growth in the prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, increasing adoption of fully automated instruments and automation in laboratories, increasing adoption of point-of-care testing, and growing awareness about personalized medicine.
The lab analytics segment of the pharmaceutical and life science research application is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Compared to conventional desktop systems, microfluidic chips offer several advantages such as low fluid volume consumption (leading to reduction in reagent costs and lesser wastage), faster analysis, better quality, precision, greater control over the process due to faster system response, and elimination of error margins. These are the major factors driving the greater adoption of microfluidic devices for lab analytics.
Based on the type, the microfluidic components market is further categorized microfluidic chips, microfluidic sensors, micropumps, microneedles, and others. The microfluidic sensors segment is expected to register highest growth during the fortecast period. The high growth rate of this segment can be attributed to the utilization of microfluidic sensors in several types of diagnostic and research products embedded with microfluidic technology.
Microfluidics Market by Geographic Analysis:
Geographically, the microfluidics market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This high growth in this geography can be attributed to the rising geriatric population, growing per capita income, increasing investments in the healthcare industry, rising demand for advanced technologies, and expansion of private-sector hospitals to rural areas in various countries in the region.
