Overview of the global laboratory plate handling systems market
Research analysis on the global laboratory plate handling systems market identifies that the shortage of skilled personnel will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Owing to the lesser enrollments of students in medical technology, there is an increase in the shortage of microbiology technologists. Additionally, the reduction in training programs and the lesser pay for medical technologists when compared to other healthcare professionals also results in the shortage of skilled labor in these fields, which is mainly witnessed in countries such as the US and the Western European countries. This will induce companies to increase investments towards the procurement of automated systems for tasks such as plate handling, liquid handling, and planting and streaking of liquid specimens, subsequently fueling market growth. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 3% by 2021.
The evolution in synthetic biology will be one the latest trends which will gain traction in the laboratory plate handling systems market during next four years. There is a constant increase in R&D activities towards the research related to synthetic biology and this has led to the emergence of end-users such as open access synthetic biology foundries. This will drive the market's growth prospects since these foundries use laboratory automation to provide easy access to technologies that enable further explorations in synthetic biology.
