The Global Microfluidic Market, by Material Type (Silicon-Based Microfluidic, Glass-Based Microfluidic, Polymer-Based Microfluidic, and Others), by Application (In Vitro Diagnostic Devices, Drug Delivery Devices and Monitoring Devices), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 2.8 billion in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 19.4% over the forecast period (2017–2025). Increasing adoption of microfluidic technology to produce miniaturized microfluidic chips used in molecular diagnosis and analysis, is expected to boost growth of the microfluidic market. For instance, in March 2016, 908 Devices Inc. launched, ZipChip, a microfluidic device that provides high quality separation possibilities to mass spectroscopy enabling fast analysis for a broader range of biomolecules.

Advancement in microfluidics technology such as lab-on-a-chip is expected to propel growth of the market Advancement in microfluidic technology such as sample droplet production technique, microfluidic sensors, lab-on-a-chip, microfluidic enabled microscope, and microfluidic valve controller helps to further augment growth of the microfluidic market. Moreover technology advancement in microfluidic saves the time, eliminate the need of expensive laboratory robots and reduce the risk of sample loss and contamination. For instance, in February 2017, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a relatively cheap and reusable diagnostic lab-on-a-chip for medical diagnostic application, which is expected to enhance the diagnostic capabilities and would be a highly feasible option in emerging economies.

Rising adoption of microfluidic technology in drug delivery systems is expected to accelerate demand for microfluidics Controlled drug delivery system deliver the drug at target sites, in desired quantity, and on time thus, enhancing drug efficiency, bioavailability, and pharmacokinetics while maintaining minimum side effects. Microfluidic-based devices are adopted significantly for micro and nano-scale drug delivery, maintaining the physiochemical characteristics of drug, at the target location. For instance, researchers at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School and Charles Stark Draper Laboratory in Massachusetts developed microfluidic based automated micropump device for direct delivery of drugs into the perilymph fluid within the cochlea- an auditory portion of the inner ear.
