Market Dynamics:


Micro pump is an actuating part of microfluidic devices, with wide variety of bio-medical applications. These are basically the miniaturized versions of the normal pumps designed for controlled fluid delivery with extremely low volume and relatively high pressure. Microfluidic systems used in medical fields such as impeller system for blood flow regulation and pressurization as well as implantable drug delivery systems for precision flow control needs a precise and reliable fluid delivery unit to convey the fluid from reservoir to the target place.

A prominent example of drug dosing applications is insulin therapy. Patients suffering from diabetes need to manage their insulin requirements carefully. Research shows that continuous subcutaneous insulin injection with micropump systems improves the patients’ health compared to multiple daily injections. Rise in the number of diabetes patients is attributed to a wide range of factors; obesity is often seen as the main contributor to an increasing prevalence of diabetes but other factors such as ageing, ethnicity, lifestyle (i.e., physical inactivity and energy dense diet), socioeconomic status, education, and urbanization have also been identified as potentially important factors. According to American Diabetes Association, use of insulin pumps has increased dramatically in the United States from less than 7,000 users in 1990 to nearly 100,000 users in 2000 and almost 350,000 users in 2019. Therefore, all these above factors are elevating the demand for liquid-micro pumps in medical devices.


Automated dosing is beneficial for regular injections, which is crucial for treatment of various diseases. Existing devices for drug dosing are large, uncomfortable and it interferes with movement. To overcome this, MEMS (Micro electromechanical system) based drug delivery device came into existence. It is a small, reliable patch pump, and energy efficient system. However, reliability to the MEMS pumps and dosing precision are still challenging. The dosing accuracy and miniaturization of these pumps should be attained. Few challenges are faced during the use of micropumps for instance, if an air bubble transports into the micro diaphragm pump leads to the failure, as the air bubble is compressible, and it acts as a fluid in the chamber of the displacement pump. According to the paper published in MDPI, on 30 August 2021 suggests, Bolus Precision Investigation, for bolus drug delivery, repeatable dosing in small packages is indispensable. While doing same if an air bubble passing through the pump, it needs strokes to be ejected out before the drug is transported. The air can be trapped in capillaries, connectors, or the edges of the testing house; bubbles can also occur during the drug dose. Since it is impossible to always overcome the bubbles, leading to major drawback in the Global Micropump Market.
