Lab Automation Market by Equipment & Software – Trends & Global Forecasts to 2017 at

The global lab automation market was valued at $3.1 billion in 2012 and is poised to reach $4.2 billion by 2017 at a CAGR of 6.4%. The growth of the lab automation market is driven by miniaturization of the process, leading to reduction in overall costs, higher reproducibility and accuracy, increasing investments in biotechnology, large lab personnel demand and supply gap, and reduction in sample contamination risk. It is expected that the market will offer opportunities for lab automation solutions manufacturers with the introduction and adoption of upcoming technologies such as digital dispensing, semantic technology and merger of Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) technology with lab automation systems.

However, factors such as indefinite data interchange standards, economic slowdown, and lack of technology planning are hindering the growth of the market. To deal with the varying demand, vendors of lab automation equipment offer a range of products and services. However, configuring components that permits maximum flexibility is a challenge.

North America accounted for the largest market share of the lab automation market, followed by Europe, in 2012. However, Asian, Pacific and Latin American countries represent emerging markets, owing to a rise in research outsourcing by pharmaceutical giants, rise in biotechnology sector investment, and growing industry demand for standardization and accreditation. The major players in the lab automation market are Tecan Group, Ltd. (Switzerland), PerkinElmer, Inc. (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Danaher (U.S.), Agilent Technologies (U.S.), and Hamilton Robotics (U.S.).
