Liquid Handling Systems Market

Date: 2016-05

The global market for liquid handling systems is one of the most important and growing markets in the laboratory and diagnostics sectors. Hand-held or manual pipettes, electronic pipettes and automated pipetting systems are the primary instruments deployed in most of the experiments in life sciences labs and for liquid handling operations.

North America exhibits the largest market share in the global liquid handling systems market followed by Europe and APAC is the fastest growing region owing to the rapid adaptation of lab automation in countries such as Japan.

Among all the types of liquid handling systems used globally, pipettes are the most widely used instruments. The emerging automated pipetting systems such as stand-alone systems, bench-top workstations and the multi-channel systems are gaining much prominence in the global market and are poised to grow with the highest annual growth rate during the forecast period. This is due to the increasing investments and R&D activities in biotechnology and life sciences for applications such as in drug discovery which propel the need for automated liquid handling systems.
Furthermore, the rising demand for high throughput screening techniques drives the need for automation in liquid handling operations in laboratories in order to minimize errors while performing the experiments. Thereby the automated systems are going to replace the manual pipetting systems in the future owing to their accuracy and minimum errors offered by them.

The liquid handling systems including robotic and standalone devices occupied the largest share in the automated lab equipment market for 2014. The growing need for accuracy in laboratory analysis, investments in biotechnology for research activities and reduction in the risk of contamination are the key factors that are driving the growth of this market.
