Presence of government funding for biotech and pharmaceutical research are expected to drive the growth of the global lab automation market

The global lab automation market is projected to USD 5.48 Billion by 2021 from USD 3.92 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2016 to 2021

Developing markets such as the Brazil, China, India, and Middle East are lucrative markets for lab automation, owing to increasing government and corporate funding for biotech and pharmaceutical research.

The report segments the global lab automation market by equipment and software, application, type, end user, and region. Micro plate Readers are the key playing field in the lab automation equipment and software market, owing to increasing benefits such as in research, drug discovery, bioassay validation, QC, and manufacturing for the detection of biological, chemical, or physical processes in samples contained in micro titer plates.

Drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, genomics solutions, proteomics solutions, and other applications (bio banking and cell biology solutions) are major application segments of lab automation market. In 2016, the drug discovery application segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global lab automation market. The need for high-/ultra-high-throughput screening and reduced time-to-market for drugs are the major drivers for the growth of the drug discovery segment.

On the basis of type, the lab automation market is segmented into modular automation, and total lab automation. The modular automation segment is expected to account for the largest share of the lab automation market in 2016. The ability to automate user-specific tasks, better affordability than TLA, and easy integration through robotics for future automation requirements are driving the growth of this segment.

Biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries are the major end user of the lab automation market, followed by  research institutes. The large share of this segment can be attributed to increase demand of the biopharmaceuticals.
