Follow us on LinkedIn. - Primarily used in liquid handling and transfer applications, pipettes and pipettors form an integral part of any research laboratory. Despite the growing automation trend, a majority of laboratories worldwide continue to use pipettes as the primary means of liquid handling. Expanding applications in biotechnology and pharmaceutical labs and increased focus on regulatory norms and quality represent key factors driving growth in the market. Additionally, demand from food processing, environmental, and chemical industries will continue to fuel demand patterns. Pipettes have come a long way from their early elementary architecture to the present sophisticated, contoured and sleek design. Given the extensive and repetitive pipetting tasks involved in biotech research, pipette ergonomy has gained significance in recent years. Manufacturers are focusing on product customization to meet unique research needs of end-users. Over the last two decades, screening applications have expanded from the confines of specialized labs to smaller academic research labs thus increasing the need for high throughput for pipetting. In order to handle high-end multiwell plates, screening labs now employ advanced manual and electronic pipettes instead of expensive and complex liquid-handling robots.
As stated by the new market research report on Pipettes and Pipettors, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.3% over the analysis period led by China and India. Rise in GDP per capita, strong government spending in life sciences research, increasing emphasis on quality and environmental regulations, and continued growth in number of research labs represent key factors driving growth in the region. Pipette Tips represents the largest product market. Product development efforts in this space are focused on overcoming traditional problems such as retention of residues and fastening the interface between tips and pipette fittings.
Electronic Pipettors are forecast to witness strong growth driven by the growing focus on accelerating the workflow and generating highly accurate results. Other factors underpinning growth in this market is the drop in product prices, rise in diagnostic tests such as PCR and use of ultra-micro volumes in laboratories. Ergonomics continues to play a vital role in improving sales with manufacturers designing products that ensure optimal working posture and comfortable handling of samples. Some of the newly added features to pipettes include microprocessor controls, electronically removable pipettor tips, and large-screen interfaces that enable easy and intuitive liquid handling operations.
