Automated Dispensing Machines Market Scenario
The Automated Dispensing Machines Market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. It is estimated that the global automated dispensing machines market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.2% with an estimated market value of USD 7.95 billion during the forecast period from 2022-2030.
Automated dispensing machines are designed for centralized filling of individual patient prescriptions and unit-dose medication orders as well as decentralized dispensing. These automated dispensing machines are intended to decrease incidents of patient medication error. Usage of automated dispensing machines enhances the safety of administration of high-alert medications and thus assists hospitals and other users to achieve the safety goal. Several factors such as patient satisfaction, resource management, the rapid development of technology applications in healthcare, including automated dispensing devices fuel the growth of the market. Due to the increased demand, companies are focusing on developing efficient automated dispensing devices. For instance, in January 2016, Omnicell, Inc., a leading provider of medication and supply management solutions to healthcare systems, completed the acquisition of Aesynt Holding Coöperatief U.A. The addition of Aesynt to the Omnicell company will add distinct capabilities in IV robotics, central pharmacy robotics, automated dispensing systems, and analytics. However, legislative and regulatory barriers, medication and implementation errors, may hamper the market growth during the assessment period. Also, malfunctions, power failures, or unplanned maintenance of the machines might also curb the growth of the automated dispensing machines market.
Becton, Dickinson and Company, Omnicell, Inc., ScriptPro LLC, Avery Weigh-Tronix, Pearson Medical Technologies, LLC, Accu-Chart Plus Healthcare Systems, Inc., Baxter, Capsa Healthcare, YUYAMA Co., Ltd, Talyst, LLC, and Cerner Corporation are some of the key players in the global automated dispensing machines market.
