Laboratory Balances And Scales Market Research, 2031

The global laboratory balances and scales market was valued at $1.1 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2022 to 2031. Laboratory balances are used to determine the weight or mass of an object to a very high degree of precision. The weight of an object is usually estimated using metric units such as grams and kilograms or alternatively pounds and ounces. The balances have the ability to measure a wide range of substances from a single grain of a synthetic solid measured by a microbalance to the weight of a large beaker on a triple beam balance. Some of the common balances used are precision balances, compact balances, and analytical balances. 

Laboratory Balances and Scales Market

Historical Overview 

The Laboratory Balances And Scales Market Size has been analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021 to 2031. The laboratory balance and scales market witnessed growth at a CAGR of around 4.4% during 2022-2031. Most of the growth during this period was from North America owing to the improvement in veterinary health awareness, rise in incidences of diabetes in pets, as well as well-established presence of domestic market players in the region.  

Market Dynamics 

The increase in the applications of balance and scales in pharmaceutical industry and chemical industry for chemical analysis where the precise weight of sample for quality analysis is required helps to create an opportunity for the Laboratory Balances And Scales Industry, pharmaceutical and chemical industries are the significant end users of balance instrument. Moreover, the rise in launch of new products made up of advanced technology by various key players across the globe is set to affect the Laboratory Balances And Scales Market Growth positively. For instance, in September 2020, Shimadzu Corporation announced the launch of six new models in its AP-AD series of analytical balances simultaneously in Japan and other countries. The new AP-AD series models offer excellent basic performance such as fast weighing times of about two seconds and high measurement stability that minimizes errors with new functionality that improves convenience, such as automatic doors and touchless sensors.

The growth of the laboratory balance and scales market is expected to be driven by high potential in developing countries due to increase in the demand of laboratory balance and scales in the research laboratories & academic institutes, surge in number of research and development activities and increase in laboratory efficiency. The ever-increasing demand for greater efficiency, scientific organizations are turning to advanced systems to provide visibility into lab operations and help drive decisions. The need for comprehensive visualization of all laboratory assets has become significantly demanding. Hence, the advanced lab-wide monitoring and management capabilities fill this need by bringing clarity and control to laboratory operations.

Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to rise in development of effective life-science products, significant increase in investments by government to improve laboratory testing and development of the medical devices industry in emerging countries contributes to the growth of the market. The demand for laboratory balance and scales is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the market. Factors such as rise in adoption of laboratory scales and increase in awareness about importance of laboratory balance in the measurement of the materials further drive the growth of the market. Moreover, an increase in promotional activities by manufacturers and the need for accuracy in laboratory results are expected to fuel their adoption in the near future.  

However, the requirement for high levels of safety regulations is hampering the Laboratory Balances And Scales Market Size.
