Lab Automation Sales in Korea are Soaring due to the Increased Demand for Automated Workstations. FMI Anticipates a CAGR of 9.6% Through 2032

In the report by FMI, the global lab automation market is forecast to reach US$ 1.9 billion by 2022, with a CAGR of 9.6%. The market is expected to surpass US$ 4.74 billion by 2032.

At a CAGR of 5.2%, the market for laboratory automation in Korea is expected to grow from $80.06 million in 2022 to US$ 132.91 million in 2032. When it comes to automation, Korea is a country of extreme contrasts.

Korea is indeed the closest thing to a technological utopia. In 2017, the International Federation of Robotics named it the world’s most robotic country. By combining physical and digital aspects of manufacturing, the Korean automation industry has been revolutionized.

In addition, the technological revolution in biomedicine and pharmaceuticals has led to the adoption of modular laboratories, which provide a reliable and economical solution. Moreover, laboratory automation contributes to a growing number of clinical studies, drug discoveries, precise diagnoses, personnel safety, and smaller reagent and sample requirements.
