Microfluidic Devices Market Overview

The term microfluidics can be defined as obtaining, preserving, screening, monitoring, and controlling fluids at a micro-level. The fluids obtained are very minute or scaled-down in quantity. The microfluidics device model is generally used to transfer, preserve, blend and separate the fluids for further testing in laboratories. This is done while the development of new cells or in the origination of medicinal drugs and injections. Microfluidics device cell capture is also needed to detect diseases and ailments such as cancer and tumors. Microfluidics testing can also be applied to gasses and other forms of chemicals. This technology has proven to be useful in many industries. The microfluidics device industry is flourishing because of its improved effectiveness and efficient handling of miniature particles.

The Microfluidic Devices market value is foreseen to shoot up to USD 14,296.04 Million by the end of the year 2024. It will grow at a CAGR of 19.70% throughout the forecast period. Let’s hope to see much growth in this market.

COVID 19 Analysis

People across the globe are suffering from the covid19. This has weighed down the pathological labs for continuous testing and diagnosis of diseases so that they can be treated well in time. The government of every nation is investing a huge lump of their resources in research & development projects. This has made the labs and research centers more equipped than they were before.

As testing increased, a need arises for procuring and manufacturing more mobile microfluidics devices. This has made possible the rise in the sales of the point of care devices market which made possible the rapid testing of antigens.

Microfluidic Devices Market Dynamics


The demand for genomics or complete strand of cells, and proteomes is increasing. This is the major driving force for the microfluidic devices market. The testing of microscopic cells has also become possible only with the help of microfluidic devices. As the quantity used and preserved for testing is very minute, it has made the handling less cumbersome and the results attained are quicker than primitive methods of testing


The major benefit of using microfluidic devices is that they use a very small quantity of chemicals which is under observation. It, altogether, lowers the cost of research. The microfluidic devices can also be connected wirelessly to cell phones. This is another boon of the advancement of scientific technology. Point of care testing is possible because of this feature.


Businesses have to abide by the law of the land and cannot operate outside it. The rigid policies of medical authorities to provide standardized microfluidic devices may hinder the growth of the market globally. The raw material for manufacturing or assembling the testing equipment is expensive. This is another obstacle for the manufacturers of microfluidic devices.

Value Chain Analysis

Owing to unhealthy lifestyles resulting in deteriorating health, and moving up statistics of chronic diseases, it has become important to get a quicker diagnosis of diseases and finding the least hazardous cure for the same. The key players of the microfluidic devices market are launching devices, such as microfluidics device collagen gel, microfluidics device syringe pump, piezoelectric device microfluidics, microfluidics chromatography device, and others, that have made testing easier and more proficient.

Microfluidic Devices Market Segmentation

The microfluidic devices market can be divided into various segments. These are: based on industry, based on materials used, and based on application

Based on industry

This segment is further divided into in-vitro, or in a test tube, diagnosis, pharmaceutical products, and medical devices. In-vitro diagnosis alone had a market share of 50.6% in the year 2018. Pharmaceuticals are further sub-divided into chips that are used for lab analysis, accurate dispensing apparatus, and micro-reactors for drug synthesis. The medical devices include micro-pumps and dispensing systems, inhalers, micro-needles, etc.

Based on material used

Various kinds of materials used in the manufacturing of microfluidic devices are polymer, glass, silicon, and others. Polymer, as a material, is cost-effective and is easy to procure than glass or silicon. This is the reason why polymer holds the largest market share in microfluidic devices.

Based on application

The various places where microfluidic devices are installed or used are Pharmaceutical and Life Science Research institutions, Clinical and Veterinary Diagnostics labs, Point of Care Diagnosis and rapid testing centers, Drug manufacturing and delivery, Environmental and Industrial equipment, and others.

Microfluidic Devices Market Regional Analysis

Microfluidic devices market size is increasing with every passing day. It is leaving its impression in every corner of the world. The regions where they are operating include America, Europe, Asia-pacific, and the rest of the world.

America, which includes the area of North America (the US and Canada) and Latin America, eclipses above the share of all other regions. America is the largest consumer because of the increasing geriatric population, widespread infectious and chronic diseases. Larger investments in medical infrastructure by the authorities, and awareness among the general public, related to the unhealthy habits and their effects in long run, are the key driving factors.

The European region which includes Germany, UK, France, Russia, and Italy, has bagged the position of second-largest market share in the microfluidic devices market. This is because of the easy and cost-effective availability of raw material. Some of the major key players are also investing in these areas because of the ease of doing business.
