Microfluidics helps facilitate many assays concurrently. Thus, increasing the throughput where a good level of spatiotemporal control is possible. This reduces the consumption and cost of precious fluids, chemical and biological assays. Numerous applications utilizes microfluidics based technology such as clinical diagnostics, analytical testing, point-of-care testing and drug delivery. Genomics, proteomics and cell-based analysis uses microfluidics technology-based instruments and chips during analytical testing.

Microfluidics systems provides features such as ease of automation, reduction in the overall consumption of sample and reagents while reducing the analysis time. Thus, it can be considered as an attractive solution for various assays like chemical and biological assay. The system also allows to conduct assays parallel, thus decreasing the cost of the assays and time.

Microfluidics in 3D cell culture has recently enabled the development of microenvironments that facilitate differentiation of tissues and can also replicate the interface between 2 tissues. It can further facilitate spatiotemporal chemical gradients, as well as mechanical micro - environment of living organs. There is an ever-increasing demand for microfluidic lab-on-chip technology in the biomedical, pharmaceutical industries as well in anti-terrorism, environmental, food and military applications. To further add to this, the development of consumers, environmental and security markets, the speed, portability, availability and low costs of miniaturized biosensors have huge commercial potential.

Strategic collaborations among key players drive the microfluidics market to develop novel microfluidic platforms for drug discovery, portable diagnostic devices and others. The collaboration space is dominated by the players who have a strong product portfolio and patented technologies dedicated to clinical research and in-vitro diagnostics applications along with the local GMP certified manufacturing facilities.

In order to overcome difficulties associated with the fabrication included into the microfluidics devices, many companies are substituting the mixers in these devices with the bubbles at large. This can be the opportunity to improve the efficiency of the microfluidics devices creating a huge opportunity in the market.
