Global Pharmaceutical Robots Market to Reach US$ 305.01 Million by 2027, Stimulated by Surging Need for Automation in Manufacturing Units

Published on Nov 16, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Pharmaceutical Robots Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global pharmaceutical robots market size reached US$ 161.84 Million in 2021. Pharmaceutical robots are physically embodied artificial intelligence (AI) agents designed to perform routine tasks, eliminating the need for human intervention. They help automate various functions, including inspection, packaging, dispensing, drug sorting, kit assembly, and light machine-tending. They also aid in the production of customized medicines, reducing workloads, and preventing drug contamination. Besides this, they assist in improving productivity, ensuring consistency, minimizing downtime, enhancing flexibility, and speeding up processes. As a result, pharmaceutical robots are gaining immense traction across the pharmaceutical industry as they offer maximum efficiency, protect workers from hazardous environments, and cut costs.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.     

Global Pharmaceutical Robots Market Trends:

The surging need for automation in manufacturing units represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the significant expansion in the pharmaceutical sector and the increasing competition have prompted drug manufacturers to adopt pharmaceutical robots as they enhance safety, reliability, and financial savings. Along with this, the high costs of new drug discovery have augmented the demand for robots in clinical trials, drug discovery, and laboratories for automating procedures. Besides this, the rising preferences for personalized medicine that requires customized medications, packaging, and labeling have accelerated product adoption rates. Additionally, there has been a substantial increase in the demand for specific packaging configurations and other benefits, such as high speed, precision, optimal utilization of space, and zero error operations. In line with this, various technological advancements, such as the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in robotics, have catalyzed market growth. Furthermore, the leading players are engaging in research and development (R&D) activities to launch collaborative robots. Apart from this, due to rising drug discovery and diagnostic testing, the emerging laboratory applications of pharmaceutical robots like vial handling to minimize the risks of human contamination have propelled market growth. Other factors, including the surging product adoption in quality control and inspection of pharmaceutical drugs, lack of skilled labor, and increasing merger and acquisition (M&A) activities among key players, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 305.01 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 10.80% during 2022-2027.
