Microreactors are one of the popular flow chemistry technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. They are a thousand-fold smaller than their traditional batch counterparts; however, some microreactors cannot compete with batch reactors. Thus, there exists a scope of improvement in the technology. This technology will require new equipment and dedicated production lines to commercialize the process. Flow chemistry technology requires high spending in R&D and innovations. Universities and companies are spending highly on research to optimize and scale-up reactors due to innovations in microreactors.
