Clinical reference laboratories to occupy a major market share during the forecast period

In 2018, clinical reference laboratories were the largest segment, accounting over 35% share of the Asia-Pacific and Middle East Africa laboratory equipment market. These laboratories require equipment for conducting numerous research activities, which require laboratory equipment such as incubators, chillers, freezers, and centrifuges. The demand for laboratory equipment is expected to rise in 2024 due to the continuous need for developing vaccines, growth in R&D activities across plant genomics, and other biotechnological advancements. Government support, coupled with increased private investments across geographies, is increasingly driving the need for launching new and technologically advanced laboratories. These technologically advanced laboratories are pushing the demand for enhanced laboratory equipment suitable for delivering fast and accurate real-time results. Bio RiiDL (Research Innovation Incubation Design Laboratory) launched a new DIY BIO LAB in 2017 in Mumbai (India) with an intention to foster innovation in the biotechnology sector.

APAC to emerge as the largest player in the laboratory equipment market

The APAC region dominated the laboratory equipment market, accounting for over 70% of market share in 2018. China, India, and South Korea lead the APAC market as laboratory equipment are witnessing a surge in these countries due to the establishment of laboratories and the rise in the biotechnology industry, which are pushing for research activities. High investments and fast-growing consumption patterns across the region continue to remain the key drivers, driving the APAC region’s economic growth. With the rise in the aging population and the increase in the number of cancer patients in China, the country is displaying positive signs for the development of its domestic biotech sector, thereby increasing the competition in the sector.

Acmas Technologies, Beijing Purkinje General Instrument, Bionics Scientific Technologies, E-Chrom Tech, Huanghua Faithful Instrument, Labtop Instruments, Macro Scientific Works, RSE Projects, Scientific Engineering, Spectralab, Telstar, The Biotechnologies, and Yamato Scientific are the other prominent vendors in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East Africa laboratory equipment market.
