Microfluidic Device Market Forecast to Reach $5.7B by 2018

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Microfluidic Applications in the Pharmaceutical, Life Sciences, In-Vitro Diagnostic and Medical Device Markets Report 2013" report to their offering.

How life science and in vitro diagnostics applications are driving an impressive 27% growth for the microfluidic device market.

The microfluidic device market is expected to reach $5.7B by 2018!

The microfluidic device market will grow swiftly, from $1.4B in 2013 to $5.7B by 2018. This impressive 27% growth will be fueled mainly by Pharmaceutical research and Point-of-Care applications.

Facing new challenges, the healthcare industry is currently moving toward personalized medicine. In this context, the line between traditional markets (pharmaceutical and in vitro diagnostic markets) has blurred. More than ever, rapid, accurate tests are needed to increase pharmaceutical research yield and better monitor/cure patients.

By offering innovative solutions, microfluidic technologies have successfully managed to fill the gap.
