Liquid Handling System Market – Overview
The Global Liquid Handling System Market is anticipated to hold a market value of USD 2.95 billion in the year 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. Liquid handling system is generally used in the pharmaceutical, life science, or biochemical laboratories. The liquid handling system can perform simple, monotonous routine tasks as well as complex pipetting task efficiently.
The growing investments in drug development, increasing demand for high-output screening, rising expenditure on research & development (R&D), and increasing adoption of automation in clinical settings are anticipated to propel the market growth during the assessment period. According to the data by The World Bank, the research and development expenditure (as % of Gross Domestic Product) was 1.70% in the United Kingdom in 2015. On the other hand, the high cost associated with the liquid handling systems and complex operability of the latest liquid handling systems may hamper the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Currently, a large number of companies are engaged in developing liquid handling systems. For instance, Microlab VANTAGE, Microlab STAR, and Microlab NIMBUS are some liquid handling systems developed by Hamilton Company.
