The two emerging market trends driving the global laboratory disposables market according to Technavio research analysts are:

  • Increasing adoption of laboratory automation systems
  • Use of environmental friendly raw materials

Increasing adoption of laboratory automation systems

The increase in the adoption of automation in laboratory devices is triggered by the increase in laboratory costs and high laboratory failures. The use of laboratory automation devices results in the reduction of the overall laboratory cost and sample wastage during experiments. The automation devices such as microplate readers, automated liquid handling systems, and synthetic biology workstations make use of disposables such as tips, microplate readers, and vials, which do not require human intervention and can be disposed of after use.

“The cost of depleting inventory reduces, with the adoption of automated laboratory systems. This reduction is due to the majority of laboratory consumables that are purchased become wasted due to shorter expiry dates, and lead to incorrect results when used for experiment,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on lab equipment.

As laboratory automation helps in reducing the labor costs and human intervention with low error rate, it is now being adopted widely across the globe. For example, an advanced workflow of synthetic biology process from gene assembly to plasmid transmission is done by synthetic biology workstation. During the process, the workstation makes use of tips, microplate readers, cell washers, petri plates, vials, and colony pickers. It uses pre-loaded tips, vials, and petri plates, which are discarded after the process, thus, increasing the volume of laboratory disposables. Hence, the growth of the global laboratory disposables market is being driven by the increased adoption of laboratory automation systems across laboratories.
