The global total lab automation market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of above 8.02% during the forecast period and be worth USD 8469.03 million by 2029 from USD 5758.55 million in 2024.

Current Scenario of the Global Total Lab Automation Market

Total Lab Automation represents an automation system employed to perform highly repetitive tasks conducted within the library. Total laboratory automation system performs the overall and esoteric laboratory testing throughout the system in a timely and cost-effective fashion. The biotechnology & pharmaceutical industries segment is the major revenue contributor due to the significant presence of pharmaceutical companies worldwide and an increase in robotics & laboratory automation adoption.

MARKET DRIVERS

The high demand for automation in liquid handling and automated workstations offers advantages such as enhanced accuracy and reduced time. The price propels global total lab automation market growth.

To meet the rising demands of the healthcare industry, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are investing heavily in research and development activities, which is expected to promote the growth rate of the total lab automation market during the forecast period. For instance, pharmaceutical companies such as Sun Pharmaceuticals, Cipla, and Lupin Ltd. spent 8.8% of their revenue on R&D in 2018, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF). Furthermore, partnerships between the pharmaceutical industry players for R&D in therapeutics are likely to fuel the global total lab automation market growth. In addition, growing demand for sample results, data integrity, short method development time, increasing healthcare expenditure, rising need for high efficiency, and low regent cost are expected to favor the growth of the total lab automation market.Furthermore, the growing demand for higher accuracy within the testing results wiped out the laboratories, one of the major factors augmenting automation adoption within the laboratories. This is predicted to support the growth rate of the global total lab automation market over the forecast period. In addition, lab automation offers low regent cost, high productivity, reproducibility, and accuracy. These benefits also raise the demand for lab automation in various application sectors.Emerging markets are expected to provide substantial growth opportunities for lab automation device manufacturers and distributors. Increased sales of lab automation products due to increased demand for clinical diagnostic procedures set new growth opportunities for the market. Major product manufacturers are expanding their distribution networks and manufacturing capacities in developing markets to grow their market share. This presents a profitable opportunity for laboratory automation. 

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The high initial costs associated with lab automation and the rigidity of the small and medium laboratories to adapt to lab automation are prominent restraining factors for the global total lab automation market.

In addition, the cost of maintaining IT solutions is higher than the cost of the software itself. Furthermore, a lack of risk-taking capacity is limiting the growth of the total lab automation market.In addition, the lack of skilled personnel and acceptance by small and medium-sized laboratories are anticipated to inhibit the market’s growth rate during the forecast period. Furthermore, because of the challenges of sharing data and communication standards between automated instruments from two separate organizations, the evolving nature of laboratory work necessitates automated solutions with greater versatility and interfacing capabilities. These factors are hindering the total lab automation market growth. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the global total lab automation market

Medical facilities are in higher demand, along with the increasing number of COVID-19 patients. Respiratory support devices, including an atomizer, a life-support system, an oxygen generator, and a monitor, are among the most widely used medical devices in primary clinical care. COVID-19 has also significantly increased the demand for medical supplies such as personal protective equipment (PPE). In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased drug development and research, thus putting excessive pressure on pharmaceutical companies and clinical laboratories.On the other hand, the pandemic has resulted in lower profits and margins for hospitals and health systems and lower investments in automation and technology. In June 2020, a notable use case involving a Danish pipetting robot was identified, automating COVID-19 testing processes in hospitals across Europe. The Danish company Flow Robotics' liquid-handling robot has accelerated the process of COVID-19 tests. Thousands of COVID-19 tests are being prepared for analysis by Flow Robotics' advanced flow bot ONE daily. With these factors, the demand for the total lab automation market has increased enormously during the pandemic.
