The global Liquid Handling Technology market size is expected to be worth around US$ 7.54 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Liquid Handling Technology market size was valued at US$ 3.88 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Major pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies are rapidly integrating robotic solutions including automated liquid handling workstations to enhance their workflows, which in turn, is expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.

The investment by pharmaceutical companies in global drug development continues to increase. Clinical trials for the robust drug pipelines of these companies is projected to further increase the investments in R&D. These pharma players are competing to sustain the growing competition in the pharmaceutical industry. As a result, companies are more focused on eliminating errors, reducing processing steps, and fulfilling standard regulatory conditions to accelerate their workflows. As advanced liquid handling platforms provide all these benefits, demand for automated liquid handling workstations is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period.

Technology advancements in liquid handling solutions has led to the development of liquid handling systems that perform serial dilution, plate replication, PCR set-up, plate reformatting, and high-throughput screening more efficiently. Emerging fields such as genetics, epigenetics, and single cell analysis are identified with high potential applications in drug discovery, cancer research, and molecular diagnostics. Rising research activities in aforementioned domains are expected to foster advancements in this market.

Report Highlights

Products offered by the companies include automated workstations, small devices, and consumables. Automated workstations are projected to grow at the fastest CAGR owing to the rapid trend of automation in the pharma-biotech industry.

The companies are developing novel automated workstations using innovative technologies such as acoustic energy and Digital Microfluidics (DMF) as a result of the growing demand for automated solutions amongst research communities. This, in turn, is anticipated to contribute to the lucrative growth of this segment.

Although workstations and small devices are expensive, they account for a one-time, long-term investment for the user. Small devices segment incorporates handheld manual & electronic pipettes, burettes, pipette controllers, and few semi-automated systems. Consumables accounted for the largest revenue share owing to the high volume requirement of sample input coupled with frequent usage of consumables resulting in the repetitive purchase of products. This frequent purchase increases the expense for the laboratory professionals, which in turn, boosts revenue generation through this segment.

Automated, semi-automated, and manual solutions are the various type of liquid handling solutions currently available in the market. The introduction of novel genetic tools such as CRISPR & NGS has spurred the demand for automated platforms, as these tools have resulted in a rapid rise in the number of ongoing genetic research activities.

Currently, a substantial number of automated and semi-automated workstations are available in the market for usage across small to large scale research laboratories for various sample handling requirements. These workstations can be used in various liquid handling steps for different workflows such as PCR reaction, serial dilution, plate replication, and plate reformatting.

Furthermore, the high cost of fully automated systems and the increasing necessity of liquid handling solutions to accelerate research workflow are the two factors that are expected to drive the adoption of semi-automated systems. The demand for automation in repetitive steps such as sampling and liquid dispensing is expected to positively influence the uptake of semi-automated systems.

Microvolume liquid handling technologies have been underdeveloped in the past years. However, with an increase in number as well as the complexity of molecular biology research activities, there are ongoing developments for manufacturing liquid handling technologies for sample handling. Rising trends of high-throughput technologies and laboratory automation have fueled demand for liquid dispensing in various clinical workflows such as DNA sequencing, drug screening, and protein crystallization processes.

Earlier, liquid handlers were not used in the quality control processes during drug discovery and development due to the absence of protocols that can validate their performance. The introduction of novel liquid handling solutions has effectively addressed this challenge as the novel solutions can be assessed rapidly for their accuracy & specificity in sample transfer.

Liquid Handling Quality Assurance (LHQA) programs are designed to enable the implementation of these systems in various processes of drug development from compound preparation to clinical trials. The LHQA ensures process quality and reduces the overall cost & time of drug discovery, thereby contributing to the largest revenue share of the drug discovery & ADME-Tox in 2020.

Implementation of automated solutions has improved the reproducibility & quality of research programs in the life science industry. Emerging economies, such as China and India, are reported to invest heavily in the establishment and development of academic institutes and research facilities for genetic and stem cell studies. Moreover, these economies are also receiving funds from the state and central government.

Large universities & research institutes are recognized as the key contributors for the growth of academic & research institutes segment owing to the substantial number of ongoing PCR and microarray-based research activities at universities and research institutes. In addition to this, many biotech and pharma companies are observed to adopt automation in various processes.

The contract research organizations are expected to witness the fastest growth as a consequence of the rise in penetration of outsourcing of drug manufacturing processes. Moreover, the CROs are witnessing pressure concerning productivity and timelines, which in turn, is expected to positively impact the adoption of liquid handling solutions by CROs shortly.

North America dominated the market with the largest revenue share in 2020 owing to the rapid adoption of automation instruments in the U.S.-based research facilities. The major companies in the region are observed collaborating with well-established universities and research centers in Europe. This collaboration is the result of the presence of a substantial number of academic and research institutes in Europe.

However, emerging countries are witnessing notable developments in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic sectors, which in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the Asia Pacific market. Furthermore, high investment in life science sectors including omics research, advanced healthcare, microbiology, drug development, and clinical diagnostics by countries such as Japan and China is anticipated to accelerate market demand in this region.
