The search for the Lepton Flavor Violating decays $\mu^+ \to e^+ \gamma$ and $\mu^+ \to e^+ e^+ e^-$ will reach an unprecedented level of sensitivity within the next five years thanks to the MEG-II and Mu3e experiments. These experiments will take data at the Paul Scherrer Institut where continuous muon beams are delivered at a rate of about $10^8$ muons per seconds. On the same time scale, accelerator upgrades are expected in various facilities, making feasible to reach an intensity of $10^{10}$ muons per second. We investigate the experimental limiting factors which will define the sensitivity in the search for $\mu^+ \to e^+ \gamma$ with these extremely high beam rates. We also consider some conceptual detector design and evaluate the corresponding sensitivity as a function of the beam intensity.
