Market Overview:

The global flow cells market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for flow cells from various end-use industries, such as chemical industry, electronic industry, and biological industry. In addition, the growing demand for quartz-based flow cells is also contributing to the growth of this market. However, factors such as high cost and limited availability of raw materials are restraining the growth of this market. On the basis of type, metal-based flow cells accounted for a major share of the global flow cells market in 2017. This segment is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period due to their high efficiency and long life span as compared with other types of Flow Cells available in the market. On account on application basis; chemical industry was observed as largest adopter accounting more than one third share followed by electronic & semiconductor applications which will grow with highest CAGR over next few years owing miniaturization trend across globe .

Global Flow Cells Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Flow Cells are a type of microfluidic device used to measure the flow rates of fluids. They consist of two channels that intersect at a right angle, with one channel narrower than the other. The widths of the channels can be varied to change the flow rate. Flow cells are important for measuring fluid flows in research and development applications.


Metal, is a chemical element found in abundance on earth. It is a solid and hard form of the element that has various industrial, commercial and technological applications. The metal plays an important role in the growth factor for flow cells market as it provides structural support to the cell membranes. Metal ions are used by bacteria and other microorganisms to build protective walls around themselves, this helps them avoid being destroyed by their environment or other organisms such as viruses or competitors.


Glass is a transparent, brittle, non-reactive material that can be used as a support for cells. It has applications in flow cytometry and immunoassays. The most common types of glass are borosilicate and silicon; the first one being more rigid and the second one being more flexible.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. Other applications include chemical industry flow cells for the most part as they offer ease of use and high efficiency in transfer of materials. The electronic industry is also expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for electronic devices across the globe.

Chemical industry flow cells are used for processing chemicals at a molecular level by providing controlled environments that prevent contact between different compounds while allowing them to come in contact with each other. This technology is gaining popularity due to its ability to provide precise control over process conditions such as temperature, pressure, and flow rate which ensure quality standards are met during production processes within chemical companies worldwide including Dow Chemical Company LLC., BASF SE., Royal DSM N.V., ChemChina Co., Ltd.; Mitsubishi Materials Corporation; and Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd among others (see table below).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of a large number of major chemical companies, which are using flow cells for cell culture and research purposes. The U.S.-based pharmaceutical companies hold majority shares in this region. For instance, Pfizer Inc.; Merck & Co., Inc.; and Sanofi have their manufacturing facilities present in this region that involve usage of flow cells for various applications such as drug discovery, bioprocessing, vaccine development and other research activities.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period due to increasing R&D spending by local governments coupled with rising disposable income levels among people living in emerging economies such as China and India. These factors are expected to boost demand for chemicals used during drug discovery processes across Asia Pacific over the forecast period – from 2018 to 2030  timeframe.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Flow Cells in the medical sector for use in diagnostics and therapeutics
  • Rising demand from the research community for Flow Cells to study cell biology and disease mechanisms
  • Growing popularity of single-use disposable Flow Cells in bioprocessing applications
  • Advances in microfluidic technology that are making Flow Cells more compact and efficient
  • Proliferation of nanotechnology that is opening up new opportunities for using Flow Cells in biomedical applications
