The major factors that drive the global ALH market are advantages of ALH systems over manual pipetting, dearth in skilled professionals, and technological advancements associated with ALH systems. In addition, rise in awareness of the benefits of using ALH is expected to fuel the market growth. However, high costs of instruments and complex operability of advanced ALH systems are expected to restrain the market growth. Furthermore, untapped potential of emerging markets provides lucrative opportunities to the market players.
The standalone ALH type segment occupied the highest share in ALH type market in 2016, owing to their sheer usage and availability in different research and clinical settings. The ALH PCR setup procedure segment witnessed the highest growth rate in 2016. However, the serial dilution procedure is anticipated to dominate the market.
At present, the biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies dominate the end user segment, and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. This is attributable to increase in usage and application of ALH systems to carry out high-throughput screening in these companies.
