The Lab Automation Market by Product Type (Automated Liquid Handling System, Micro plate Reader, Automated Storage and Retrieval System, Automated ELISA System, Automated Nucleic acid purification system, Robotic system, Software, and Others), by Application (Drug Discovery, Clinical Diagnostics, Genomics, Proteomics, Cell Biology, and Other Applications) By End User (Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies, Diagnostics Laboratories, and Research and Academic Institutions) and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa) was valued at US$ 5,218.3 million in 2016 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period (2017 – 2025).
Increasing application of the lab automation equipment in genomics for diagnostics and treatment of various diseases is propelling market growth. Genomics involves gene mapping and gene editing procedures, which require integrated automated workflow solution of lab automation equipment. For instance, DNA testing is emerging as noninvasive screening technique for early cancer detection, new gene editing technique such as CRISPR-Cas9 would further take genomics at new heights supported by lab automation systems. Personalized medicine for treatment of various diseases are expected to gain a significant traction in near future, which in turn is expected to drive growth of the lab automation market. Companies are offering integrated solutions to private and public research institutes. For instance, in June 2017, DiaSorin and Tecan Group announced the collaboration, under which DiaSorin will make use of Tecan's Fluent Laboratory Automation Solution as Nucleic Acid extraction platform. In January 2018, Hamilton developed a method for automating the library preparation of SOPHiA GENETICS’ CE-IVD marked hereditary cancer solution application in an advanced and flexible way through microlet automated workflow system, which reduces the challenges associated with manual sample preparation further standardizing the process and minimizing human intervention.
