The first commercially-available lab-on-a-chip devices are now more than 20 years old. Over the past decade, the complexity of microfluidic devices has reached a level not even dreamed of before. Complex laboratory processes can be integrated and automated on-chip, from sample to answer. However, the mass production of such devices is still far from being widespread. In the meantime, the acquisition wave continues, leading to an impressively rapid structuration of the industry. As a consequence, a minority of players now represent 75% of the microfluidic market and seem to be the only ones which reach large production volumes. In this presentation, Sébastien Clerc will give some inputs to understand this situation, explain what the keys to unlock the situation are, propose alternative strategies for which commercial success does not lie on large volumes, and overall share Yole’s vision of the latest microfluidics market and technology trends.
