Liquid Handling System Market Scenario


Liquid handling system market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. It is anticipated that the market held a market value of USD 2.95 billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period. The liquid handling system is a laboratory instrument system consisting of tools and equipment designed to execute mixing, sampling, and combining of liquid samples. The factors such as an increase in investments in drug development, growing demand for high-output screening, growing expenditure on research & development (R&D), and rising adoption of automation in clinical settings are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. According to the World Bank, in the US, the research and development expenditure (as % of Gross Domestic Product) was 2.79% in 2015.

Despite the drivers, the high cost associated with the liquid handling systems and complex operability of the latest liquid handling systems is anticipated to restrain the growth of the market over the assessment period.
