Insight by Product

In 2020, the medication dispensing systems market segment accounted for the largest share of the global pharmacy automation devices industry. Such a high share is due to the rise in morbidities due to medication dosing errors. Moreover, strict government policies are creating pressure among pharmacists and healthcare institutes to these dispensing systems to improve patient care services.

Furthermore, according to the survey done by the “Pharmacy Purchasing and Products” on automation of pharmacy services, the pharmacies in healthcare facilities are planning to adopt automated dispensing machines, which is expected to drive the market growth for pharmacy automation devices.

Automated compounding systems are expected to witness the fastest market growth over the pharmacy automation devices study period. The rising application of sterile compounding is the most important parameter driving the segment’s fortunes. Moreover, automated robotic compounding conditions empower pharmacists with the concerned tools for improving dosage accuracy, while enabling compliance and reduction in costs.

Geographic Overview

In 2020, the North America pharmacy automation devices market accounted for over 50% of the global market. Factors contributing to the growth for pharmacy automation devices include technological advancements in workflow systems and reduction in the upfront costs of the automation systems, so it is affordable for small and mid-sized hospitals.

For instance, U.S.-based Duke University Hospital has already implemented Omnicell’s XT series to automate dispensing systems in all their 5 hospitals. Automation has resulted in increased capacity and can accommodate around 30 percent more medications in the given time. Moreover, rising concerns over inadequate inventory management in high volume dispensing machines lead to a high-cost burden among system providers, which ultimately increases the cost of the machine.

Asia Pacific market for pharmacy automation devices is projected to achieve a lucrative growth rate over the assessment period. The growing need of reducing medication dosing errors, excessive pressure among the government to serve a huge set of needy populations, and rising affordability among healthcare facilities in the region are projected to stimulate the region’s growth for pharmacy automation devices.

For instance, as per the study done by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare, around 3% of admissions in the country were due to errors in medications. Moreover, improvements in medical infrastructure in developing countries are expected to prosper the region’s market growth for pharmacy automation devices.
