An introduction to the lab automation market

Lab automation is the process of the integration of various types of devices on a same platform, such as diagnostic analyzers, research devices, and supportive instruments and software to increase throughput with remarkable speed, precise motion, and consistency in report generation. During the automation of a routine laboratory, dedicated workstations and software are used to program instruments, which allows scientists and technicians to maintain consistency in quality and result output by reducing mundane tasks. The growing number of diagnosed cases and increasing real-time result analysis with the advent of automation techniques have led to a threefold increase in the demand for automated devices, services, and advanced software.

Lab automation offerings consist of two types of components - devices and software. The devices section consists of biochemistry devices, molecular devices, hematology devices, immunology devices, microbiology devices, and others. In the software section, FMI has included scheduling software and momentum integrated software. In the overall lab automation market, the devices segment has the largest market share in terms of value, which has a huge potential in the coming future, due to the increasing demand for biochemistry devices and molecular devices.

Due to the dominant features and advantages, lab automation is preferred by the diagnostics industry, followed by drug discovery and research labs. Lab automation has a wide variety of applications in life sciences, ranging from clinical pathology to molecular research. In clinical diagnostics such as biochemistry, hematology, microbiology, and immunology, high throughput is directly proportional to time efficiency and operator safety. While research organizations and academic institutions generally prefer automation, which reduces human intervention in tedious and repetitive tasks. The global lab automation systems market was valued at US$ 1,130 Mn in 2016, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 9.6% over the forecast period (2017–2027).

Increasing acceptance of lab automation in developing economies and rising use of lab automation in large integrated health systems to boost revenue growth

Emerging countries in the Asia Pacific region such as China and India are the major countries for investment opportunities because of higher growth rates of molecular-based diagnosis, quality improvisations, increasing number of partnerships, and healthcare modernization in these countries. To increase revenue share, medical device manufacturing companies are focusing on the development of automated devices used for in-vitro diagnosis and research, with advanced facilities, which will indirectly pump growth into the lab automation market, and also boost the software and services revenue over the forecast period. The increasing demand for high-end, advanced lab automation devices from end users, such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, hospitals and diagnostics centers, ambulatory surgical centers, educational institutes, and research organizations for better output and performance will generate opportunities for the launching of novel lab automation techniques and services in the market over the long run.

The use of lab automation services has increased very steeply over the past decade. Lab automation services help in increasing throughput at a remarkable speed, and with precise motion and consistency in report generation. The growing number of diagnosis cases and real-time result analysis with the advent of automation techniques has led to a threefold increase in the demand for automated devices, and advanced software and services. The aforesaid factors will increase the demand for lab automation in large integrated healthcare systems.

Several players in the lab automation market are majorly focusing on new automated device launches and services to reduce the costs of lab automation services, in order to gain maximum market share. Acquisition, mergers, strategic collaborations, and technology play a vital role in the growth of the lab automation market.
