The fast moving ecosystem of Chinese microfluidics
The Chinese government has created a strategic plan to comprehensively upgrade the country’s industrial sector and make China a major player that is independent from other countries. This plan, Made in China 2025, includes a focus on pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Companies involved in these sectors will benefit from almost unlimited funding by 2025, with the goal to compete with foreign industries and retake significant market share. As a key tool for diagnostics and life sciences applications, microfluidic technology will likely benefit from this massive spend. The Chinese diagnostics market is currently dominated by large international companies like Roche and Abbott, but new Chinese companies are rising up to compete.
Yole Développement (Yole) expects that the market for microfluidic based products sold by Chinese players will grow at 28% CAGR between 2017 and 2023. The new report, Chinese Microfluidics Industry, is showing a $171m market in 2017. According to Yole’s analysts, this market should reach $754.1m in 2023.
