Global Lab Automation Market Analysis


Laboratory automation is a multidisciplinary approach used to develop and optimize laboratory technology to improve medical testing and processes. It replaces manual steps with automated processes, which are potentially dangerous and error-prone.

The global lab automation market is estimated to be worth US$ 4.477 million in 2020, and is expected to reach US$ 6,262.3 million by the end of 2027.


During the forecast period, the demand for laboratory automation in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology fields continues to grow, which is expected to drive the growth of the global lab automation market. Laboratory automation uses high-end automation equipment, such as automatic liquid handling systems, micro-plate readers, and automatic storage and retrieval systems. It also includes software to perform various routine laboratory procedures, such as sample analysis, measurement performance, sample mixing, sample storage, and many other procedures. Laboratory automation improves productivity with less uptime and greater precision by minimizing human error in operational tasks. The automatic liquid handling system can perform three different procedures at the same time, such as sample preparation, adding reagents to different sample dishes, and moving laboratory utensils from the periphery to the front of the table.

Furthermore, the increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market. According to data from the American Cancer Society, there will be 1,762,450 new cancer cases and 606,880 cancer deaths in the U.S. in 2019. 4,444 liquid handling products dominated the global lab automation market in 2019, accounting for 40.3% of the share value, followed by micro-plate readers and robots, among others.


It is expected that the cost of automation prevents the growth of the global lab automation market. The cost of automation is one of the objections facing each laboratory. A greater investment resists the laboratory to buy the product. The need to expand or remodel the laboratory workspace works as a barrier in the implementation of laboratory automation, as it functions as an additional charge at cost. In addition, the low adoption of laboratory automation in emerging economies is also expected to limit the global lab automation market growth.
