Global Automated Liquid Handling Market to Reach US$ 2,031.2 Million by 2032, Accelerated by Increasing Demand for High-Throughput Screening in Drug Discovery and Genomics Research

May 31, 2023 | Healthcare

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Automated Liquid Handling Market Report by Type (Standalone, Individual Benchtop Workstation, Multi Instrument System, and Others), Modality (Disposable Tip, Fixed Tip), Procedure (PCR Setup, Serial Dilution, High-Throughput Screening, Cell Culture, Whole Genome Amplification, Plate Reformatting, Array Printing, and Others), End User (Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies, Contract Research Organizations, Academic and Government Research Institutes), and Region 2024-2032," the global automated liquid handling market size reached US$ 1,078.3 Million in 2023. Automated liquid handling streamlines and optimizes liquid transfer tasks in laboratory settings. It combines precision robotics, advanced software, and an array of components to perform accurate and efficient liquid handling operations. At its core, an automated liquid handling system consists of a robotic arm equipped with specialized tools such as pipettes, dispensers, and mixers. These components work in conjunction with intelligent software that controls the entire workflow. One of the key advantages of automated liquid handling is its ability to eliminate human error and variability, ensuring reproducibility and accuracy in experiments. Additionally, it significantly reduces manual labor and allows researchers to focus more on critical tasks. As a result, automated liquid handling systems find extensive use in various scientific fields, including genomics, proteomics, drug discovery, and clinical diagnostics. They are mainly employed for tasks such as high-throughput screening, sample preparation, PCR setup, and assay development. Currently, there are different types of product variants available, including basic, single-channel pipetting systems and complex, multi-channel and robotic systems that are capable of handling large volumes and multiple samples simultaneously. These systems can be customized to suit specific laboratory needs, offering flexibility and scalability.

Global Automated Liquid Handling Market Trends:

The global automated liquid handling market is primarily boosted by a multitude of factors, including the increasing demand for high-throughput screening in drug discovery and genomics research. Moreover, the growing need for accurate and precise liquid handling in various applications, such as clinical diagnostics, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries, and the growing adoption of laboratory automation to enhance workflow efficiency and reduce human errors are contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, favorable advancements in robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are enabling the development of sophisticated automated liquid handling systems, further boosting the market growth. Additionally, the rising focus on miniaturization and high-precision liquid handling for applications, such as single-cell analysis and next-generation sequencing, is contributing to market growth. Moreover, burgeoning investments in research and development (R&D) activities by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and the escalating need for improving laboratory productivity and reducing operational costs are providing a significant thrust to the market growth. In line with this, the expanding biobanking and biorepository facilities and the COVID-19 pandemic have accelerated the adoption of automated liquid handling systems for high throughput, which, in turn, is propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as the surging number of academic and research institutes, the growing trend of personalized medicine and companion diagnostics, and stringent regulatory requirements by governments of various nations, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 2,031.2 Million by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 7.1% during 2024-2032.
