  • (1888PressRelease) January 29, 2013 - Wellesley, Mass. - Total market value is expected to reach nearly $10.3 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13%.

    Inkjet printing currently is by far the largest application of microfluidics, accounting for about 63% of the total market in 2011. Although the inkjet printing segment includes applications such as biochip production and flat-panel display fabrication, it obviously owes its dominance to the inkjet printer head market. Despite its size, inkjet printing is the slowest-growing application segment with a projected CAGR of less than 7%, and by 2017 it is expected to account for slightly less than 45% of the market.

    After inkjet printing, healthcare-related applications such as high-throughput screening, diagnostics, and drug delivery represent the largest and fastest-growing applications of microfluidics technology. Together, these three applications accounted for more than 33% of the microfluidics market in 2011; by 2017, their combined market share is expected to be greater than 51%.

    The remaining application segments, particularly chemical analysis and synthesis and proteomics, are smaller and growing at a slower pace than healthcare-related applications. The market for defense and public-safety applications should remain small throughout the period under review.
