U.S. Biotechnology Instruments Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Furthermore, the presence of local companies and easy availability of government funding for research are anticipated to boost the market. High adoption of point-of-care diagnostic devices and continuous advancements in R&D have enhanced the capabilities of point-of-care testing systems. Moreover, novel POC devices allow real-time transmission of test results to patient's electronic medical records for easy review by physicians. The systems have also been designed to comply with changes in laboratory regulations easily.

The rising prevalence of chronic disorders, including infectious diseases, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, cancer, and others, is expected to propel market growth. High unmet medical needs for cardiovascular diseases and increasing patient awareness are expected to boost the demand for IVD instruments. An increase in the adoption of unhealthy habits, such as smoking, a rise in the incidence of obesity, and dietary irregularities are responsible for the increase in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. Moreover, the prevalence of diabetes is increasing, widening the patient pool.

The U.S. biotechnology instruments market accounted for 40% of the global biotechnology instruments market in 2023. This can be attributed mainly to the growing demand for automation in industrial and clinical settings. Automation in the industrial workplace has enabled companies to maximize output and profits, whereas laboratory automation in clinical settings has increased speed & reliability of patient data. A report stated that biotech startups offer on-demand experimental automation and outsourcing scientific research & development services. Such initiatives have improved the accessibility of automation services at the industrial level, boosting the market.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is fragmented with several emerging lucrative opportunities. Growing geriatric population is expected to boost the demand for diagnostic instruments. Furthermore, laser therapy, which can be used for a broad range of applications, including cancer treatment such as chemotherapy, surgery, and other treatment modalities, is also being highly explored.

U.S. Biotechnology Instruments Market Concentration & Characteristics

This industry is witnessing several R&D activities and product launches for product expansion and company profile upgrades. Prominent companies are launching new products to facilitate rapid downstream processing. For instance, in February 2021, Waters Corporation launched Waters ACQUITY PREMIER Solution, which is a next-generation liquid chromatography system that features MaxPeak High-Performance Surface technology. Advantages associated with these systems include elimination of time-consuming steps and improvement in analytical data quality.

Many smaller companies involved in these activities are strategically merging or being acquired by larger ones. A substantial increase in mergers and acquisitions of companies having assets that are valuable, but with insufficient funds, is anticipated to drive market growth. In December 2023, Roche announced the successful acquisition of Carmot Therapeutics, a U.S. based biotechnology company that focuses on therapeutics for people suffering from metabolic diseases.

Regulatory framework on approval processes of instruments is the most critical factor in biotechnology. However, fundraising initiatives by government and other funding bodies for the enhancement of R&D activities in biotechnology and instruments is projected to significantly impact the industry’s growth.  Government and key organizations engage constantly in activities intended at curbing cancer-related healthcare expenditure by encouraging patients to undergo regular diagnostic examinations.
