Scientific Instrument Market Trends:

Increase in Number of Research and Development Projects

The rising number of research projects & studies is primarily driving the growth of the scientific instruments market. For instance, India's R&D sector is witnessing significant growth, with a notable increase in Gross Expenditure on Research and Development (GERD) from ₹6,01,968 million in 2010-11 to ₹12,73,810 million in 2020-21. In line with this, the United States is the leading country worldwide in terms of spending on research and development (R&D), with expenditures exceeding US$ 760 Billion purchasing power parity (PPP). Additionally, the increasing number of government funded research laboratories across the world is also augmenting the scientific instrument market share. According to the network of national laboratories, there are 69 research institutes/laboratories functioning under the Ministry of Science and Technology in India. Moreover, the rising collaboration between the governments and manufacturers to provide the best instruments in government and university laboratories, and various other research institutions is anticipated to contribute to the market growth across the globe.

Expanding Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Sectors

Scientific instruments can be used to assist in bringing up novel products that can be used in the therapeutics of various chronic diseases. Moreover, factors such as the rising demand for point-of-care testing, the growing geriatric population, and the high prevalence of target diseases across the globe are expected to augment the need for scientific instruments. For instance, as per the International Diabetes Federation, approximately 537 million adults (20-79 years) were living with diabetes in 2021. The total number of people living with diabetes is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. Hence, the rise in diabetes cases is expected to increase chronic disease complications, thereby driving the demand for scientific instruments to drive in-depth R&D and produce improved therapeutics. Besides this, to combat the rising demand for various biotechnology instruments, several prominent players are taking initiatives, which are positively impacting the scientific instrument market outlook. For instance, in June 2022, Agilent Technologies Inc. publicized that CE-IVD marked instruments, kits, and reagents were released as IVDR Class A in compliance with the new EU IVDR regulation. With the introduction of IVDR-compliant Class A products, labs in the European Union can continue to utilize Agilent IVDR instruments, kits, and reagents in their diagnostic processes without interruption.

Increasing Product Application in the Aerospace Industry

Scientific instruments play a crucial role in aerospace engineering and exploration. Technologies like spectrometers and cameras help analyze the composition of celestial bodies, aiding in planetary exploration and understanding the universe's origins. The rapidly increasing research activities in the aerospace sector are further catalyzing the market for scientific instruments. For instance, the remarkable launch of Chandrayan 3, which took place in August 2023, involved the utilization of various scientific instruments, such as ILSA Seismometer, RAMBHA-LP Langmuir Probe, LRA Retroreflector, CHASTE Thermal Probe, etc. In addition to this, various key market players are increasingly investing in developing technologically advanced instruments to facilitate in depth in the aerospace industry. For instance, in February 2024, Central Scientific Instruments Organization (CSIO) in association with Hindustan Aeronautical Limited (HAL) announced their plan to establish a cutting-edge Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Avionics in Chandigarh for advanced research and development in avionics technology to boost aerospace industry. Such initiatives are anticipated to propel the scientific instrument market size in the coming years.
