Pharmacy Automation Market by Product, End User and Region - Global Forecast to 2027


Dublin, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Pharmacy Automation Market by Product (Automated Medication Dispensing & Storage Systems, Table-Top Counters, Retrieval Systems, Medication Compounding), End User (Inpatient, Outpatient (Fast-Track Clinics), Retail Pharmacies) - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The pharmacy automation market is projected to reach USD 8.2 billion by 2027 from USD 5.6 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.

The growth in this market is attributed to the growing need to minimize medication errors, rapid decentralization of pharmacies, and growing focus on automation to reduce labor costs. However, the stringent regulations that delay product launches can inhibit the growth of this market.

Based on product, the automated medication dispensing and storage systems segment holds the largest market share in 2021

Based on products, the pharmacy automation market is segmented into automated medication dispensing and storage systems, automated packaging and labeling systems, automated tabletop counters, automated medication compounding systems, and other pharmacy automation systems. In 2021, the automated medication dispensing and storage systems segment accounted for the largest share of this market, primarily due to the increasing occurance of medication errors and implementation of stringent regulatory guidelines for patient safety and medication dispensing across regions. Automated medication dispensing and storage systems allow the care providers to dispense medication faster and more accurately with the help of in-built advanced features that allow medication storage, picking, dispensing, and labelling.

Based on type, the robots/robotic automated medication dispensing segment accounted for the largest share of the automated medication dispensing and storage market

Based on type, the automated medication dispensing and storage systems market is segmented into robots/robotic automated dispensing systems, carousels, and automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs). In 2021, robot/robotic automated medication dispensing systems accounted for the largest share of this market. These systems lower the rate of errors by increasing the administration accuracy rate by incorporating robots with single/multiple robotic arms that handle the filling, storing, and dispensing of medications, thereby reducing the chances of manual errors.

The retail pharmacies end-user segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period
