Market Shares Remain Clustered among Emerging Players, who Focus on Volume Sales as Prime Expansion Strategy
Tier 3 players hold the hegemony in the microreactor technology market, with a revenue share of nearly 40%. Focus on specific product segments, along with volume sales through the development and maintenance of an adequate product supply, remains one of the primary agendas among the emerging players in the market. However, the higher dependency of tier 3 players on contracts has arrested enhancements in their product portfolios and technological developments.
Meanwhile, the tier 1 players in the microreactor technology market remain focused on novel drug delivery system launches, and strategic alliances with the regional players to extend their market footprint. These players are also oriented toward expansion of manufacturing facilities in regions with significant growth potential, such as India and China, to capitalize on the emerging opportunities.
Potential Benefits over Conventional Processes Bolster Adoption in Chemical Industries
Resurgent growth of chemical industries in the past few years has meant that demand for process intensification to achieve optimal results has also taken off. Microreactor technology has gained widespread acceptance among manufacturers of fine as well as specialty chemicals who seek to streamline their production costs while tackling environmental challenges. Additionally, the high compatibility of the microreactor with mixing operations, such as mass transfer and heat transfer, has improved its visibility in the overall chemical industry landscape.
Microreactor technology is expected to witness high traction, as it facilitates one-step reactions while eliminating the risk of alternate reactions, which results in greater polish and higher yields of finished products. Provision of clarity on crucial operational parameters, and enabling seamless process flexibility along with enhanced productivity, are other aspects driving demand for the microreactor technology. Microreactor technology is further expected to continue to gain momentum with its greater speed and convenience compared to the conventional processes in various mixing applications.
