Microplate Instrumentation & Supplies Market to Exceed $5.0 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc

Driven by the burgeoning demand from drug discovery research and high throughput screening applications, global market for microplate instrumentation & supplies is projected to amount to $5.0 billion by 2015. A key driving force is the increasing involvement of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies into screening thousands of compounds.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 3, 2008 -- Playing a pivotal role in laboratory automation and simplification of research process, microplate technology has come to replace conventional micro test tubes and cuvettes for running medium-to-high throughput assays. Ever increasing testing volumes have prompted majority of laboratories to implement lab automation, which essentially include microplate instrumentation. Miniaturization of laboratory processes is yet another driving force for the industry, leading to a drastic cut in the need for expensive reagent sample size, thereby cutting costs and improving throughput. The market is evolving rapidly following innovative developments in automation, liquid handling and detection devices. Drug Discovery has emerged as a lucrative application in the worldwide microplate instrumentation & supplies market. Rapid growth stems from spurt in scientific discoveries, following the human genome project, and other advancements in analytical technology.

United States, Europe and Japan represent the leading regions with share exceeding 85% for the year 2008, as stated in a recent report published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. United States market for microplate instrumentation is highly competitive and comprises of suppliers offering a whole range of microplate products including instruments, accessories and consumables. Liquid handling and robotic equipment market in the United States is projected to reach US$698 million by 2012.

Sudden upsurge in the use of high throughput microplate readers in drug discovery is ascribed to the advancements in combinational chemistry that created rapid synthesis of several new compounds. Further, the emergence of multimode readers capable of functioning with multiple detection techniques, especially a combination of fluorescence and luminescence, is also fuelling growth in the segment market. Microplate readers market in Europe is projected to register sales of US$305 million by the year 2010.

Leading players profiled in the report include Beckman Coulter Inc., Biohit Plc, Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., BioTek Instruments Inc., BMG LABTECH GmbH, Caliper Life Sciences, Molecular Devices, PerkinElmer Inc., Tecan Group Ltd., and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.
