Liquid handling systems are indispensable tools used in chemical or drug discovery laboratories. These tools are used to transfer fluid to the destination container or solution. These systems are designed to deliver small volumes with high comfort, accuracy and precision. The liquid handling systems are operated manually or by robots or are even designed to be automated systems. The common issue to dispense very small volume of fluid is solved by using automated liquid handling systems.

According to a recent study by IndustryARC, the Global Liquid Handling Systems Market is estimated to grow at CAGR of 2.4% and reach $3.13 billion by 2020. The market for software services will be the major contributor. The demand for manual pipettes will foster slow growth due to the high uptake of automated liquid handling systems such as bench-top workstations, stand-alone systems and multi-channel systems.

Liquid Handling Systems have made serious invasion in the labs and technology has been the wheel taking it forward. The liquid handling systems which used to exist 20 years back are completely different from the current generation. The concept of automation has changed the way liquid handling systems are being developed now. The automated liquid handling systems have increased the efficiency of lab procedures due to reduction in human error. The shift from pipette to robots has made an immense impact.

The most dominant end user application of this market is in pharmaceuticals industry. These systems are essentially required by the pharmaceuticals laboratories for various applications such as serial dilution, titration, and biological sample handling and so on. The explosion in ‘genomics research’ of next generation-sequencing is another scope for increasing the growth of this market.

The Shift of Liquid Handling Systems towards Robotic Types will Boost the Market Revenue

The automated liquid handling systems have been in use for quite some time and they have proved to be beneficial in providing precision and accuracy while reducing the labor cost. However, the market is witnessing arrival of new products at a fast pace which have better technical abilities than the existing product. In the midst of such dynamism, the next wave will come from Robotic Liquid Handling Systems. These systems are able to provide accurate amount of liquid which is important in processes such as Next Generation Sequencing and Protein Crystallization. Functions such as changing tubes and microliter plates are also carried out by the system which helps in streamlining the workflow. The advantage with the use of Robotic Liquid Handling System is that it enables researchers to focus on analyzing the data rather than managing the process. These systems help to manage complex workflows and high throughput screening.

Americas was the highest revenue generating region in the global liquid handling market in 2014 with net sales of $1,142.1m. The American liquid handling system market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% in the forecast period on the back of higher investments in the life sciences projects and boom in the pharmaceuticals manufacturing both at domestic and global level. In Europe, Germany and U.K. are the leading markets owing to increasing investments in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. European countries are making the transit form basic healthcare products to advanced medtech products such as genetic engineered drugs, DNA cloning and others. In Asia Pacific, China and Japan are the dominant markets whereas the revamping economic conditions in India and South East Indian nations are set to drive the global liquid handling system market to new heights.

The automated liquid handling systems find applications in research laboratories, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and drug discovery research. The ability to offer automation, high precision and robustness makes them irreplaceable. The demand for automated liquid handling systems which offer high precision at affordable cost is driving the innovation in market.

The predominant companies of this market are:

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.),
  • Beckman Coulter Inc. (U.S.),
  • Corning Inc. (U.S.),
  • Mettler-Toledo International Inc. (U.S.),
  • Perkin Elmer Inc. (U.S.) and so on.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.) is the leading manufacturer of liquid handling systems which are used in various applications such as laboratories, medical research center, biological sample, life sciences, and so on. Biological sample handling is the leading application for the players, precision is the foremost concern among the industry.

Increase in Incidence of Hospital Acquired Infections (Hais) to Drive the Market

One of the basic constraints facing the industry is lack of awareness in developing countries. The demand for automated liquid handling systems market is dependent upon the research initiatives in fields such as biotechnology, genomics and drug discovery. The time required for the research to fructify and converting it into product requires significant amount of time. The innate need for faster revenue generation leads to import of pharmaceutical products rather than focusing on innovation. The financial incentive to conduct extensive research is also acting as a barrier. This has impacted the growth of liquid handling systems market. The firms need to invest in research & development for development of innovative products.

The market for automated liquid handling systems is growing significantly at the back of technological innovations. The advent of robotic liquid handling systems has added a new dimension to the market. The next step is miniaturization of devices that are able to dispense small volumes efficiently. This brings along the need to train laboratory personnel as the systems grow to serve specific needs. The automated liquid handling systems have the ability to provide value to different healthcare end users ranging from laboratories to pharmaceutical companies.
