The lab automation in bioanalysis market was valued at USD 5.06 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 7.10 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Lab automation is required in bioanalysis applications, as manual and traditional handling can result in a corrupted or infected sample. The emergence of automated solutions, such as automated liquid handlers, automated plate handlers, and robotics, has eliminated the need for human intervention in bioanalysis laboratories by increasing accuracy and improving efficiency.
  • For clinical trials, it is sometimes imperative to monitor drug levels in subjects in real-time, which enables medical monitors and clinical investigators to adjust the dosing to meet the subject's needs and study requirements. Thus, clinical trials and diagnostics require bioanalysis technologies. Automated handling makes it easier to obtain error-free results. Owing to the rise in the number of clinical trials and studies and the growth in complexity, lab automation in bioanalysis is projected to experience significant demand.
  • Various aspects, such as growing reproducibility and accuracy, miniaturization in the process, progressing drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, and the large gap in workforce demand and supply, have driven the growth of the market across the world. Moreover, factors, such as technological innovations leading to device miniaturization and increased throughput and rising demand for personalized medicines, are significantly driving the market growth.
  • However, high capital requirements for setup will be a major hindrance to market growth.

Key Market Trends

Robotic Arms to be the Fastest Growing Equipment Segment
  • Robotic arms in lab automation are used for chemical analysis. Pharmaceutical companies are employing robots to move samples around the workspace for diagnosing chemical entities from the existing sample. Robotic arms are used for sample handling, coupled with new technologies, to eliminate errors.
  • The pharmaceutical industry has experienced increased use of robotic arms, as the synthesizing of samples with structural analysis can be done automatically. Robotic arms are used in applications, like biological and combinatorial chemistry for sample diagnosis, with automation increasing the market’s standards.
  • Further, robotic arms also help in doing the mundane task in the laboratory set up saving time and energy of a human being doing that task. According to IFR, World Robotics 2018, sales of medical robots increased by 73% compared in 2016 to 2,931 units in 2017, accounting for a share of 2.7% of the total unit sales of professional service robots. The major reason identified for an increased sale has been the wide use in robotic surgery and laboratory automation in clinics.

North America to Hold Largest Market Share
  • A rise in the number of global clinical and pre-clinical studies has made the need for speedy analysis of samples imperative, making automation one of the key components contributing to the growth of the market.
  • Various aspects, such as growing reproducibility and accuracy, miniaturization in the process, progressing drug discovery, clinical diagnostics, and the large gap in workforce demand and supply, have driven the growth of the market across the world. Cost-effectiveness, owing to routine work, professional labor cost, and precise handling, is a variable that impacts the demand for these solutions.
  • Strict regulations by the US government and the FDA, the growing demand in the diagnostic market, and the increasing usage of discovery and research labs, owing to the rising presence of various diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases and neurological diseases in the region, have fueled the growth of the market. The US dominates the North American market and is the major revenue contributor in the region.
