Safety and cost effectiveness, which are prime concerns while working in laboratories call for a need for laboratory plasticware equipment. It has also resulted in the development of new plasticware fabrication methods to improve the quality of products while keeping the cost reduced. Reduction of cost and development of new and advanced plastic materials have encouraged the shift from glassware to plasticware, especially for laboratory equipment such as pipette tips, storage containers, beakers and flasks. However, due to its transparency and purity, glassware are still preferred for glass slides and other precision instruments.
Another segment evolving through years with the help of technological development is laboratory filtration equipment market. Filtration is a critical step in a laboratory which helps in sample clarification and sterilization, particle sampling, drug screening, cell culturing, etc. Technological developments have made the filtration equipment capable of ultra-purification, which was impossible with traditional devices. Membrane filter holds the largest market share followed by filter papers and filtration microplate.
In order to reduce operational cost, improve energy efficiency, minimize waste and increase productivity, laboratory equipment are adapting advanced technologies. Rapid development in technologies like system integration, micro processing, nanotechnology, micro fabrication, miniaturization and automation, etc. have helped modern labs to improve their design and efficiency as well.
The market for laboratory equipment is very large and complex due to wide range of products and players. The market growth is augmented by rising trend of outsourcing of clinical operations, increasing prevalence of collaboration between vendors and research laboratories, increasing number of pharmaceutical firms and the rising number of patients.
