Growth Opportunities in the Laboratory Automation Market
Automated Liquid Handlers and Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) Enable Market Expansion
The laboratory automation market refers to the use of various technologies, software, and equipment to automate laboratory processes and workflows. This market includes a broad range of products and solutions that help laboratories improve their productivity, accuracy, and efficiency while reducing the risk of errors and improving data quality.
Automation performs repetitive tasks accurately and allows scientists to focus on other valuable tasks. For example, automated liquid handlers can replace manual pipetting, saving time and dispensing reagents accurately. Drug discovery applications in pharmaceuticals, life sciences, and the food industry drive the demand for laboratory automation.
Sustainability is the key trend, and with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals in place, there is a heightened focus on providing clean drinking water. There is also a lot of pressure on reducing pesticides, so testing for pollutants such as pesticides in soil and water will have strong potential.
Products covered in this report include microplate readers, liquid handling, laboratory robotics, multiplex and high throughput (HT)/single-plex enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), management informatics [LIMS and electronic lab notebooks (ELN)/scientific data management systems (SDMS)], and bioinformatics and cheminformatics.
In terms of verticals, the report covers pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and life sciences; chemicals and petrochemicals; food testing; oil and gas; government, academic, environmental, and university research; and others (e.g., forensics, cosmetics, pulp & paper).
