May 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Pharmacy Automation Devices Market Growth & Trends

The global pharmacy automation devices market size is expected to reach USD 11.6 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 9.9%, based on a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of pharmacy automation devices, such as automated dispensing systems, packaging systems, and storage and retrieval systems for pharmaceutical purposes. Pharmacy automation has increased the efficiency and productivity of pharmacies as well as improved patient safety. It reduces the time required for counting, filling, packaging, and labeling of patient prescriptions.

In addition, according to a report published by Omnicell Inc., 75% of the pharmacist’s time is spent on nonclinical operations, such as order review & verification (41%), drug distribution (19%), administrative management (8%), education & other (7%), and clinical (25%). Through automation, pharmacists can spend more time on patient care. Moreover, it helps to prevent product contamination and errors, thereby reducing the risk of liabilities and increasing patient safety.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the market. Many pharmacy automation players witnessed a decline in revenue from the second quarter of 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, Omnicell Inc. witnessed a decline in its revenue by -0.13% in the second quarter of 2020. However, the pandemic has exposed gaps and challenges across the pharmacy supply chain, making more sophisticated automation and intelligence capabilities critical to effectively manage medications in the post-COVID world.
