Lab Automation in Genomics Market - Global Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2020-2025 with Thermo Fisher Scientific, Becton Dickinson, Siemens Healthineers, and Tecan Group Dominating - ResearchAndMarkets.com
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 22, 2020--
The “Lab Automation in Genomics Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The Global Lab Automation in the Genomics market is expected to register a CAGR approximated at around 7.5% during the period of 2020-2025.
With the technological advancements and increasing computational capacities, there has been significant improvement in knowledge of genome sequencing in terms of data analytics advances that show unknown correlations, hidden patterns, and other insights, especially when it comes to testing data sets a large scale.
Moreover, novel advances in medicine are being made at a rapidly increasing pace, largely due to recent developments in genome analysis. DNA sequence analysis provides a clearer understanding of how genetic variation leads to disease and will ultimately lead to new cures. Also, laboratory automation has proved to make room for great flexibility, higher throughputs, and affordable solutions. It offers faster handling and process can be expedited without the worry for lack of reliability and precision. Genotyping and DNA sequencing have been very affordable, due to which the rate of growth is robust.
Advances in DNA sequencing technology have made it cost-effective and more accessible than before, which has led to a flurry of genetic testing start-ups. To bring the price down, companies, such as Color Genomics and Counsyl, have built their sequencing labs and analytics software from scratch, using robots and machine learning to optimize operations.
Various genomics applications that can integrate automation in their processes include nucleic acid isolation, RNAi screening, CRISPR analysis, PCR, and gene expression analysis. Players/Vendors in the laboratory automation are designing tools that cater to these application needs. For instance, Explorer G3 integrated workstations are developed by PerkinElmer, an American company focused in the business areas of life science research, and industrial testing, to meet customers’ automation needs for genomics applications.
Moreover, the companies’ other kind of product launches through partnerships, which is increasing the market share of automation in the genomics. For instance, in January 2020, pentrons Labworks, Inc. and Swift Biosciences, Inc. announced the launch of the most affordable fully-automated workstation for next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation ever put on the market.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, labs have been converting their spaces and resources into COVID-19 testing facilities, leading to increased adoption of automation equipment. The labs at the University of Washington were the first ones to do this. The Broad Institute followed an announcement of the conversion of their clinical processing lab into a large-scale COVID-19 testing facility.
Key Market Trends
Automated Liquid Handlers to Witness High Growth
Cross contamination is a major problem in the genomics laboratory, which can be avoided by implementing automated systems to manage the reagents and reaction mixtures. It is believed that taking out human intervention helps in achieving more consistency.
- Many technological advances have been made in the molding of plastics that reduced the volumes of reagents used and enabled the easy handling of smaller liquid volumes. These advancements have worked in favor of the development of micro- and nano-litre plates, to fit with the automated liquid handling equipment.
- Leading companies have set the benchmark for the development of automated liquid handlers. These companies are constantly investing in developing premium products, to increase the productivity of the process.
- According to the Robotics Industries Association, the life science sector has the third-highest growth in industrial robots, in terms of automated liquid handlers, automated plate handlers, and robotic arms, among others to meet up the demand.
