Report Overview

The global laboratory supplies market size was valued at USD 34.7 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% during the forecast period. The market is majorly driven by the rise in funding and investment in R&D activities in the field of pharmaceutical and biotechnology. 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 researching 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 shutdowns 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, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The demand for laboratory products is rising due to technological advancements in the field of chemical and biological research. The increasing volume of clinical laboratory tests and life science research investigations is driving 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 need a range of equipment & instruments to run tests and research studies. General lab equipment & instruments can be found in educational labs, research labs, quality assurance, diagnostic testing in medical labs, R&D, manufacturing, and others. The use of laboratory equipment allows faster analyses that add value to the laboratory itself by increasing the capacity of the instruments, thus letting it perform more tests every day. The faster procedures may even allow testing to be combined onto fewer instruments that can decrease maintenance, consumables, need for regulatory documentation, and overall costs.

Technology trends are also improving laboratory capabilities. Innovative technologies and procedures allow laboratory technicians and scientists to work more accurately and efficiently than ever before. Automation, miniaturization, artificial intelligence, and smart technology are becoming real-world, streamlining life in the lab. Concurrently, 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 by 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. provides an electronic pipette with touchscreen operation & automatic tip ejection. This has a screen that works like a smartphone, letting users access functions with a simple swipe.

Product Insights

The equipment segment accounted for the largest share of over 63.4% in 2021. The segment consists of incubators, centrifuges, laminar hoods, air filtration systems, microscopes, etc., and each product has a very crucial role when carrying out research on cell or tissue culture, which is essential to studying drug toxicology, oncology therapies, and personalized medicine. The equipment segment is the largest owing to the high equipment costs resulting in one-time installments for many years. With the help of the equipment, process controls, experiments, and quality assurance are carried out. It serves for quick capture and orientation in different categories.

Scientific institutions such as laboratories, research centers, and companies need quality laboratory equipment to perform a variety of tests, studies, and experiments. The results of these activities depend upon the quality, strength, and durability of the equipment. They aid to offer accurate results and also improve 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 37.5% in 2021. This is attributed to the presence of several biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical firms engaged in R&D. In addition, an increase in the number of grants, such as the National Institute of Health (NIH), to enhance research activities provided by government establishments 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 during the forecast period.
