Automated Liquid Handling Market Research, 2030

The global automated liquid handling market was valued at $960.98 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $2,385.91 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2021 to 2030. Automated liquid handling (ALH) systems are equipment that are precisely programmed to handle liquids and deliver accurate and reproducible results without any complexity in clinical and research settings. Efficient and accurate liquid handling techniques play important role in clinical and research laboratories. Automated liquid handling systems can be optimized for use in techniques, including ELISA, time-resolved fluorescence, nucleic acid preparation, PCR setup, next-generation sequencing for genomic research, TLC spotting, SPE, and liquid– liquid extraction. Automated liquid handling instruments have various advantages like it enables simplified sample preparation with consistent high accuracy and allows labs to free up manual labor and run more samples while maintaining reproducibility. It helps to address sample preparation needs for proteins, metabolites, as well as genomics and NGS applications, reducing set up times and protocol development.

 

The automated liquid handling market growth is driven by rise in adoption of ALH, rise in adoption of ALH in emerging countries, technological advancements in ALH systems, and surge in demand for miniature process equipment. Moreover, the advantages of ALH systems over manual pipetting such as improved efficiency, enhanced safety also contributes in the growth of the market. However, rise in higher costs of ALH instruments is expected to hinder the market growth. Conversely, untapped potential of emerging markets offers automated liquid handling market opportunity.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) was discovered in late December, 2019, in Hubei province of Wuhan city in China. The disease is caused by a virus, namely, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is transmitted among humans. Testing for COVID-19 has been an ongoing bottleneck in the fight against COVID-19. With growth in need to process specimens faster with greater accuracy, interest in automated liquid handlers and robotics that can handle the workload has been increasing rapidly. Overall, the impact of COVID-19 on the automated liquid handling industry was recorded to be fairly positive. This was attributed to increase in customizations of automated liquid handling systems by different automated liquid handling suppliers specifically for work related to coronavirus. For instance, in April 2020, Hamilton Company and Zymo Research Corporation announced that they have collaborated and launched MagEx STARlet assay-ready workstation with Quick-DNA/RNA Viral MagBead Kit protocol to extract pure DNA/RNA from the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. The jointly developed automated solution offers significant advantages compared to manual processing of samples via traditional time-consuming methods such as spin columns.

Analyst Review

Automated liquid handling industry have streamlined research workflows to a great extent and have reduced manual effort required in liquid transfer operations. Manual pipetting can be prone to error and is not very reproducible. This creates additional bottlenecks in overall research experiment, when experiments are not satisfactorily reproduced. Therefore, different research laboratories globally are adopting ALH systems as they deliver error-free reproducible results. ALH systems comprise instruments and equipment that are used to handle liquids and execute different functions related to liquid transfer in a clinical and research environment.

The use of ALH systems has resulted in efficient high-throughput screening of chemical compounds. High-throughput screening is of utmost necessity in the pharmaceutical industry to execute drug discovery and development. Likewise, in research settings, routine laboratory procedures equipped with ALH through work-stations allow researchers to think deeply and unconventionally about their experiment outcomes. Furthermore, this also helps scientists and researchers design effective follow-up projects or develop alternative approaches and hypotheses for their investigations instead of repeatedly doing tedious tasks, especially pipetting.

The ALH market has gained momentum in research, innovation, and development sectors, owing to increase in productivity and profitability it offers, which reduces burden associated with manual liquid transfer operations. In addition, dearth of skilled professionals, technological advancements associated with ALH systems, and advantages of ALH systems over manual pipetting drive the market growth. High-end equipment; their continuous use, in terms of procedures such as plate reformatting, plate replication, high throughput screening array printing, and other procedures are carried out to a higher extent in the biotechnology & pharmaceutical industry, when compared to other end users. Employment of technologically advanced ALH systems is the highest in North America, owing to increase in adoption of this technology, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.
