Pharmacy Automation: Technologies and Global Markets

01 Sep, 2016 | BCC Research | 212 Pages

Report Scope:

This report is designed to be a helpful business tool that will provide a thorough evaluation of the global pharmacy automation market. The geographical scope is global with special emphasis on the United States and developed Europe, with supplemental data covering other geographical markets and trends. The report identifies pharmacy automation markets by inpatient and outpatient pharmacy settings, and by product type. Within the global pharmacy automation market, there are two general pharmacy settings, each having other subsettings:

- Inpatient pharmacy automation.
- Acute-care settings.
- Long-term care settings.
- Outpatient pharmacy automation.
- Outpatient/fast-track clinical settings.
- Hospital retail settings.
- Pharmacy benefit management services and other mail-order settings.
- Retail pharmacy chains.

Each segment is further reviewed to provide detailed information of current and emerging products, current market estimates and market forecasts, and competitive analyses.

Report Includes:

- An overview of the global markets for pharmacy automation and related technologies
- Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015, estimates for 2016, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2021
- A market breakdown of inpatient pharmacy automation into acute-care settings and long-term care settings
- A market breakdown of outpatient pharmacy automation into fast-track clinical settings, hospital retail settings, pharmacy benefit management services, and retail pharmacy chains
- A look at the impact of chronic diseases, and growing and aging populations
- Technology patent trends relating to automating processes in the pharmacy environment
- Profiles of major players in the industry

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Although pharmacy automation dates back to the 1970s with the introduction of pill-counting machines, the pharmacy automation market continues to advance and deliver impressive technology and improve efficiency. The increasing demand for accuracy, safety, industry standards and competency in the pharmacy environment by regulatory authorities, manufacturers, healthcare professionals and consumers has forced the growth of this market.

New opportunities in various settings will continue to surfaceÑfrom small, private,family-owned pharmacies to large hospital and mail-order service facilities. Many small, private pharmacies are still conducting operations through manual and semi-manual methods, particularly in regions outside of the United States. The opportunity to fully automate these pharmacies surfaces more often each year, and with a growing compliance with bar-coding standards and new tracking capabilities with radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, this trend will continue to increase at a rapid rate. A large portion of inpatient facilities are already highly automated; however, there are advancements in technology and performance improvements every
year, and these pharmacies will continue to seek out the most efficient system to upgrade. In order to remain competitive in the pharmaceutical dispensing business, organizations will be highly dependent on efficient automation systems. Therefore, upgrades are likely to be an ongoing process.
