Report Overview

The global laboratory supplies market size was valued at USD 30.6 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028. The market is majorly driven by increasing funding and investment in research & development activities in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceutical. The market is expected to grow at a steady rate in the coming years owing to the continuous and stable supply of laboratory equipment. The Covid-19 pandemic had resulted in an increase in research pertaining to coronavirus. However, labs carrying out research pertaining to other diseases pre-pandemic were shut down as the major goal of the lockdown was to avoid close contact with others, which led to low demand for lab supplies. According to Stat News, many researchers have stated that widespread and lengthy shutdown have had significant implications on the pace of other scientific discoveries. Some of the initial disruptions have increased the workload on CROs or reduced the internal lab testing capacities of biopharmaceutical firms.  

U.S. laboratory supplies market size, by product, 2016 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The demand for laboratory products is rising due to advancements in the field of biological and chemical research. The increasing volume of life science research investigations and clinical laboratory tests is boosting the demand for laboratory disposable products. The market is also projected to gain continuous demand for a constant supply of key laboratory devices and equipment among procurement managers in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.

Laboratories require a variety of equipment and instruments to run tests and research. General lab equipment can be found in research labs, educational labs, diagnostic testing in medical labs, quality assurance, research & development, manufacturing, and more. The use of laboratory equipment allows faster analyses that add value to the laboratory itself by increasing the capacity of the instrument, thus allowing to perform more tests every day. The faster methods may even allow testing to be consolidated onto fewer instruments that can reduce consumables, maintenance, requirements for regulatory documentation, and overall costs.

Technology trends are also increasing laboratory capabilities. Innovative technology and methods allow scientists and laboratory technicians to work more efficiently and accurately than ever before. Smart technology, automation, miniaturization, and artificial intelligence are becoming real-world, streamlining life in the lab. Simultaneously, the pressure to deliver results quickly is also increasing. Hence, laboratories must be fast and agile. For laboratory managers, a key way to increase efficiency is improving the purchasing process. The lab suppliers are also trying to make the product selection and ordering processes simpler.

Technological advancements in laboratory equipment are also driving its adoption. Modern laboratory instruments have interfaces that make their operation easy for users. BrandTech Scientific, Inc. offers an electronic pipette with touchscreen operation and automatic tip ejection. It has a screen that operates like a smartphone, allowing users to access functions with a simple swipe.

Product Insights

The equipment segment accounted for the largest share of over 63.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the high cost of the equipment resulting in one-time installment for many years. Laboratory equipment is another technical field. With the help of the equipment, experiments, process controls, and quality assurance are carried out. It serves for quick capture and orientation in different categories. The corresponding laboratory instruments, machines, and equipment can be found systematically, easy and fast.

Scientific establishments such as research centers, laboratories, and companies require superior quality laboratory equipment to perform a range of tests and experiments. The success of these activities depends upon the quality, strength, and durability of the equipment. They help to provide accurate results and also enhance work efficiency. This is eventually creating demand for the equipment and boosting the market growth.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest share of more than 37.0% in 2020. This is attributed to the presence of numerous pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical firms engaged in R&D. Moreover, a rise in the number of grants - such as the National Institute of Health (NIH) to foster research activities - offered by government organizations is anticipated to boost the market growth. The quality and track record of firms that have operated in the region are believed to attract further investments for research over the forecast period.
