Microchips in Medicine Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Rising Prevalence of Cancer Worldwide– With the increasing prevalence of cancer and other chronic conditions, medical microchips are being used to detect, diagnose, and treat these conditions. These chips can be implanted in the body and help to monitor vital signs, detect cancer cells, and deliver targeted drug treatments.
    Cancer is considered to be one of the leading causes of death worldwide according to the World Health Organization, resulting in nearly 10 million deaths in 2020.
  • Increasing Adoption of Chips in Eye Implants and Surgeries- For instance, an empathetic bionic eye implant was performed at Moorfields Hospital in London in January 2022, allowing a Blind UK patient to see signals. The patient received a "revolutionary" new bionic chip that detects visual signals.


  • An Absence of Awareness Regarding the Potential Benefits of Microchips in Medicine among People - People are often unaware of the potential benefits of microchips in medicine, such as the ability to store medical records or track patient data. Additionally, there are other alternatives available, such as wearable technology, which may be more attractive to potential customers.
  • High Cost of Production
  • Lack of Skilled Labor for the Production of Microchips

Microchips in Medicine Segmentation

Application (Drug Administration, Home Monitoring)

The drug administration segment is estimated to hold 55% share of the microchips in medicine market in the coming years owing to the increasing demand for smart drug delivery systems, which are driven by growing awareness about the benefits of using microchips in drug delivery systems. Extreme flexibility in drug delivery is made possible by microchip technology, which consists of drug-filled sockets that release the medicine at predetermined intervals.

Additionally, the advantages of using smart drug delivery systems such as improved flexibility, accuracy, and safety of drug delivery are further driving the growth of the segment.

End-User (Hospital, Research Centers)

The hospital segment is set to garner a notable share of 59% shortly on account of rapid advances in medical technology. Hospitals are increasingly looking to upgrade their medical equipment, and microchips are essential components of many of these devices. Moreover, as medical technology continues to advance, microchips will become even more important in enabling hospitals to provide the best possible care to their patients.
