By Product Type

  • Incubators: Expected to hold the largest share, owing to the wide range of applications it offers.

  • Centrifuges: These are used in the separation of fluids, gas, or liquid, based on density.

  • Spectrometers: Fastest growing market due to increased product launches in the market. In April 2018, Bruker launched INVENIO Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) research spectrometer.

  • Scopes: Scopes are mostly used in laboratory facilities. Different types of scopes include optical microscopes, electron microscopes, and confocal microscopes, among others.

  • Sonicators: Sonicators work on the principle of applying sound energy to agitate particles in a sample, for various purposes such as the extraction of multiple compounds.

  • Autoclaves: Autoclaves are pressure chambers used to carry out industrial and scientific processes requiring elevated temperature and pressure different from ambient air pressure.

  • Others: The others segment includes various products such as flow cytometers, microarrays, and microplate readers, among others.

By Application

  • Biochemistry: This is expected to be the largest segment, owing to the wide number of biochemical tests that are conducted in clinical as well as diagnostic laboratories.

  • Endocrinology: Endocrinology deals with the endocrine system and its related diseases. The increasing number of different tests is projected to push this segment to be the fastest-growing. Moreover, the share of this segment is expected to increase owing to the rising patient population. For instance, the number of visits to physicians’ offices for endocrine, nutritional, metabolic diseases, and immunity disorders were 69,845 in the US.

  • Microbiology: Microbiology testing is done for the detection of various types of bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

  • Hematology: Hematology is related to the cause, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to blood. This segment includes various tests for white blood cells, red blood cells, hemoglobin, platelets, and so on.

  • Genetic Testing: Genetic testing can provide information about a person's genes and chromosomes.

  • Others: The others segment include toxicology and autoimmune diseases, among others.

By End-User

  • Hospitals and Clinics: The largest segment, hospitals and clinics are usually the primary points for diagnosis and treatment of individuals. Growing awareness about new products and increasing use of laboratory equipment are projected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

  • Diagnostic Laboratories: Diagnostic laboratories conduct various tests to detect the presence of a disease.

  • Others: This segment includes research organizations and academic institutions.
