Insights into Market Segments
Based on type, the automated dispensing machines market has been bifurcated into centralized and decentralized systems. The decentralized category is expected to register faster growth in the market during the forecast period. This can be mainly attributed to the increasing cases of hospitalization, rising number of hospitals, and growing demand for decentralized systems in healthcare settings.
Adoption of automated dispensing systems is increasing in hospitals, pharmacies, and retail drug stores. Hospitals are expected to hold the largest share in the automated dispensing machines market in the coming years. This end-user category is estimated to hold over 70% share in 2018, and is expected to progress at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. Growing patient population, increasing healthcare expenditure, and rising prevalence of chronic diseases are some of the major factors fueling the demand and encouraging the adoption of automated dispensing machines in hospitals, globally.
Geographically, North America holds the largest share in the automated dispensing machines market, with an estimated contribution of 40.8% to the market in 2018, and is projected to generate $919.5 million revenue by 2024. This can be mainly attributed to the improved healthcare infrastructure, presence of established players, and surging geriatric population in the region.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) Market is Expected to Witness the Fastest Growth
During the forecast period, the automated dispensing machines market is expected to witness the fastest growth in APAC, with 9.3% CAGR, mainly on account of the improving healthcare infrastructure in the region and the increasing focus of market players on developing countries, such as China and India, for business expansion.
Initiatives implemented by government organizations to install automated dispensing systems in healthcare settings have increased the demand for such systems in APAC. For instance, the Central Medical Services Society (CMSS) of India is encouraging installation of automated dispensing systems in rural parts of the country. With the support of CMSS, automated medication systems are installed in several states of the country. These systems dispense free of cost general prescribed medicines.
Besides, growing economies and increasing healthcare expenditure are allowing countries of the region to install automated dispensing machines in healthcare settings. According to the World Bank data, the gross domestic product (GDP) of Malaysia was increased from $193.5 billion in 2007 to $314.7 billion in 2017. Similarly, in Vietnam, its GDP was increased from $77.4 billion in 2007 to $223.7 billion in 2017. A similar scenario was observed in India and Sri Lanka, where the GDPs were $1.2 trillion and $32.3 billion, respectively in 2007, which were reached to $2.6 trillion and $87.3 billion, respectively in 2017. Since the GDP growth is on the rise, the adoption of technological advanced products in the APAC region is expected to increase, which in turn, will boost the market growth.
