The global lab automation market is projected to reach USD 5.20 Billion by 2022 from USD 4.06 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. This market is fragmented in nature with a large number of regional and national players. In 2016, Tecan Group (Switzerland), PerkinElmer (US), Danaher (Beckman Coulter & Molecular Devices) (US), Thermo Fisher (US), Agilent Technologies (US), Eppendorf (Germany) were the top five players in the lab automation market and accounted for approximately 40% share of the overall market.
Lab automation is defined as the use of technology to streamline or substitute manual manipulation of equipment and processes. The degree of automation that any lab requires depends on its workflow. While an academic research lab may prefer to use only some instruments in order to increase productivity and reduce the time spent on a tedious task, a drug discovery unit in a pharmaceutical company will perhaps need to automate all of its research phases.
The global lab automation market is expected to reach USD 5.20 Billion by 2022 from USD 4.06 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.1%. Factors such as process miniaturization, high demand for lab automation equipment in drug discovery and clinical diagnostics, higher reproducibility and accuracy, and large workforce demand and supply gap are likely to drive the growth of this market. In addition, lab automation offers enhanced productivity and reduced costs, better personnel safety, and small volumes of samples and reagents.
Based on region, the lab automation market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and RoW. In 2017, North America is projected to account for the largest share of the global lab automation market. The demand for lab automation in North America is driven by the increasing number of investments in research and innovation by the government, large presence of pharmaceutical R&D labs in this region, and lab automation adoption by hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs due to increasing volume of tests.
