NEW YORK, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
OBJECTIVES OF THE REPORTThe market of MicroReaction Technologies (MRT) dedicated to flow chemistry sharply increased over the last five years. Recent and growing involvement of the fine chemical and pharmaceutical industry clearly signals the transformation of this technology from academic settings towards applied research and production. How have micro-technologies impacted the pharmaceutical and the fine chemicals industries? Looking back on the last 5 years with an analysis of the most relevant changes is essential to understand the market dynamics observed today. This report provides a comprehensive view on the flow chemistry market, including: Consolidated MRT market data (2005-2011) Market forecasts (2012-2017) for modules, systems and production units. Main trends and challenges Modules, systems and production units supply chain. The main business models HIGHLY SEGMENTED MARKET DEPENDING ON THE ADDED VALUE OF MRT Large chemical and pharmaceutical companies are increasingly considering MRT as a process intensification solution to solve some of their current processing problems for lab research and to debottleneck production. Nevertheless, the motivations for implementation are multiple and vary form one case to another. On the technical side, user requirements will be different if the principal goal is to precisely control the reaction kinetics, avoid hazardous situations or develop new syntheses. Likewise, drivers differ depending on the molecule life cycle. This leads to a market segmentation of the Flow Chemistry market. For each segment the following elements are described: applications, technical and economic requirements, key technology suppliers and some examples of technologies and users. The ability to understand to which segment a prospect belongs is essential as it determines the most appropriate offer and commercial approach.
