Driver: Increased R&D investments in pharmaceutical industries

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are making significant investments in research to meet the growing needs of the healthcare sector. For instance, According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), pharmaceutical companies such as Sun Pharmaceuticals, Cipla, and Lupin Ltd. invested 8.8% of their sales in R&D in FY 2018.Moreover,collaborations between pharma companies and healthcare stakeholders for R&D into therapeutics will also stimulate the use of lab automation., hence exceeding the production levels this will likely to drive the demand of Lab Automation market.

Restraints: Slow adoption of automation among small and medium-sized laboratories

Due to budget constraints, many small and medium-sized laboratories find it difficult to opt for automation. The high maintenance and service costs associated with laboratory informatics solutions also form a major restraint. According to industry experts, the maintenance cost of IT solutions is more than the actual price of the software. Moreover, low risk-taking capability, and lack of evidence on the cost-effectiveness of automation solutions for small and medium-sized laboratories are restraining the growth of the lab automation market

[212 Pages Report] The global lab automation market size is projected to grow from an estimated USD 4.3 billion in 2020 to USD 5.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.2%
