Liquid Handling System Market Segment Insights


Liquid Handling System Type Insights


Based on type, the global liquid handling system market segmentation includes automated, manual and electronic. The biggest market share is electronic liquid handling systems because of their excellent precision and reproducibility. The growing outsourcing of pharma and biotech workflows has prompted CROs and CMOs to improve the efficiency of their workflows to meet regulatory standards. Because of this, many CROs and CMOs are incorporating automated liquid handling into their infrastructure. For instance, Social CDMO, Inc. announced in June 2022 that a new customer project would utilize the company's automated lyophilization and fill/finish line unit at its San Diego location.


Liquid Handling System Application Insights


Based on application, the global liquid handling system market segmentation includes drug discovery, ADME screening, high-throughput screening (HTS), compound weighing and dissolution, and others. In 2022, the drug discovery sector held the majority of the market, with a share of 35.6%. Approximately a million molecules are screened to find a novel therapeutic candidate in a single drug discovery experiment. The standard needs for handling liquids, such as high throughput, low volume, and precision, are presented by microarray technology. Stepwise serial dilution over a large concentration range, compound selection and transfer for the retest, and confirmatory and further analysis are only a few examples of the numerous applications in drug discovery. The three main applications of automated liquid handling workstations in drug discovery are plate-to-plate dilutions, plate replications, and plate reformatting. A significant benefit of adopting liquid handling platforms in drug development is the possibility to integrate several types of liquid handlers, stackers, or incubators to increase throughput, which further positively impacts the market growth.


Liquid Handling System End User Insights


The global liquid handling system market data has been bifurcated by end users into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies and contract research organizations (CRO). With a revenue share of more than 62.3%, pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms led the market in 2022. Laboratories for drug development were the first to develop automated liquid handling. Its rapid drug discovery and manufacturing expansion are facilitated by the regular requirement to distribute liquid samples on different substrates and transfer them to containers of varied sizes. It is anticipated that pharmaceutical and biotech companies will continue to dominate the industry in the years to come due to this rise in the usage of automation for drug screening and drug development.
