Inconsistent Nature of Technological and Process Development is Hindering Market Growth
Lab automation has been at the forefront of change in medical research because of several incremental innovations in robotics, liquid handling, and associated software solutions. Several suppliers have been adopting a smart approach to the development of lab automation tools. However, most of the laboratories are facing compatibility challenges due to the inconsistent nature of adoption and the presence of third-party subsidiaries that do not interface with the new tools. Lab automation tools require seamless interaction with IT systems for processing samples, analyzing data, and reporting observations to a centralized repository. Automation tool vendors need to work towards a pre-planned strategy for facilitating innovations and process development. Thus, the inconsistent nature of the technology is restraining the growth of the market.
Automated Plate Handlers to Grow at a Fast Pace
Automated plate handlers are used in laboratory environments, integrated through hardware and software with microplate readers. Plate handlers deliver up to 20-30 plates with integrated software which control the plate reader. The capability to operate with multiple instruments has allowed plate handlers to increase speed and capacity. With recent advancements in technology, the major players in the market have been able to develop microplate handlers with an integrated vision and dynamic learning ability that can provide the machines with an independent capability to learn from previous operations and further boost the work envelope by more than 25%. Leading enterprises in the manufacturing of the detection plates for performance monitoring and delivering precision alignments in the laboratories are investing a huge amount of money to develop robust and reliable products.
North America Holds the Largest Market Share
The market landscape in North America is extremely dynamic with a high level of merger and acquisition activities. Both manufacturers and clinical laboratories are increasingly vying for smaller specialized niche technology solutions to increase their market share. Further, the rise in the number of clinical or pre-clinical studies has increased the demand for an efficient and cost-effective solution, such as lab automation, which is required for the analysis of samples, thereby, propelling the growth of the market. Improvement in the operational efficiency at lower cost is the key factor driving the market in the North American Region.
