The global dispensing systems market size was worth US$ XX million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Dispensing systems are robots programmed for dispensing fluids. The dispensing system consists of a robotic arm with a 3-axis manipulator and programmed pathways. Dispensing systems are programmed to deliver precise amounts of liquid in quantities ranging from nanoliter to decaliter into the required plate or bottle. Dispensing systems are used in pharmaceuticals, genomics, materials science, forensics, electronics, automotive, chemicals, industrial manufacturing, food processing and construction.
Dispensers can be automatic, semi-automatic, or manual, with dispensation from a basic single-channel design to multichannel systems with 1536 channels. Types include bottle top dispensers with pulse-free and digital control, bulk dispensers and automated handling workstations. Each pump system has its advantages and drawbacks, depending on the reagent used: Microprocessor-controlled syringe pumps offer precision and speed, while peristaltic pumps tend to reduce backflushing, among other benefits. Modern systems can combine pump types into a single system to eliminate purchasing multiple instruments. An emerging trend in dispenser technology is a modular design, which enhances performance by enabling automatic changeover of various process parameters such as volume range and dispense heads.
The demand for dispensing systems is mainly driven by the rising adoption of automation in industries. The high cost and maintenance of dispensing systems are key factors in limiting the growth of this market.
Rising adoption of automation in industries
The world has experienced strong economic growth in the last two decades, a vast majority of the growth has occurred in emerging markets such as those in the Asia-Pacific region. Economic growth has lifted millions of people out of poverty and has led to drastic improvements in socio-economic indicators. A large, global urban middle class has emerged with rising disposable income. It has generated massive demand for various consumer products.
Industries have responded to this demand by drastically increasing production. The adoption of automation systems by industries has increased to ramp up production. Automated robotic systems can work with high speed, precision and accuracy, resulting in less downtime and maintenance. It also helps companies lower labor costs, as a single robot can perform the function of multiple people. Automation improves production output while decreasing production time. As industries expand and increase production in response to rising global demand, the adoption of automation has increased.
A wide range of industries is adopting dispensing systems. Automotive industries use dispensing systems for adhesives, sealants, lubricants and spraying applications. It is used in the electronics industry to apply adhesives and other fluids on electronic components during fabrication. Dispensing systems are used in the food and beverage industry to bottle milk, soft drinks, alcohol, sauces, jams, pickles and syrups. The pharmaceutical industry utilizes dispensing systems to load excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). The penetration of dispensing systems within these industries will likely increase in the coming years as production becomes ever more automated. Therefore, the rising adoption of automation in industries is a key driver for the growth of the global dispensing systems market.
High cost and maintenance of dispensing systems
Industries adopt dispensing systems for reliability, speed, precision and accuracy across various sectors. Dispensing systems have led to a manifold increase in productivity and output with a corresponding decrease in production costs. However, there are certain drawbacks to the use of dispensing systems.
Dispensing systems are highly advanced and, therefore, extremely expensive-a simple portable dispensing system robot with a single axis of movement costs on average US$ 10,000. The cost of high-end complex dispensing systems runs into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Major corporations can bear the costs; however, small and medium scale enterprises cannot adopt dispensing systems due to their cost.
Modern dispensing systems have multiple components, complex electronic circuitry and thousands of programmed computer code lines. Maintenance is time-consuming and leads to downtime and production decrease. Furthermore, a highly skilled operator is required for routine maintenance procedures, thereby adding to the cost. All these factors prevent the wider adoption of dispensing systems and are a key challenge to the market's growth.
COVID-19 impact analysis
The global dispensing systems market experienced uneven impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Demand from industrial applications such as automotive manufacturing saw steep declines since government-imposed lockdowns and restrictions brought a prolonged halt to manufacturing globally. However, demand started rising in the later pandemic stages as major companies sought to automate and limit human interaction to keep up production.
A major manufacturing hub and, therefore, a major market for dispensing systems, China emerged from the lockdown in June 2020 and overall demand showed encouraging signs of recovery towards the end of 2020. However, Europe and North America were hit by the second wave of the pandemic, thereby depressing demand. The global demand is expected to recover by early 2021. Dispensing systems require various components supplied by a global and diversified supply chain. The knock-on effects of the pandemic on the global supply chain, such as an acute shortage of semiconductors, are hampering the production of dispensing systems. Therefore, some companies prefer low-tech and low-cost manual dispensing systems as a stop-gap measure until dispensing system production improves. Global production is expected to recover to pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2021 fully.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been severe for the dispensing systems market. Major customers had cut orders as they curtailed capital expenditure due to the pandemic's economic uncertainty. The pandemic will not have a major impact on the long-term growth of the global dispensing systems market since demand is forecasted to improve as production levels of end-use industries approach pre-pandemic levels. Due to the continuing and relentless rise of automation, demand for dispensing systems remains strong and is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
The global dispensing systems market is segmented into type, application and region. The dispensing systems market is further segmented into electronics, automotive, chemicals, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, industry and manufacturing, food and beverages, construction and others.
Food and beverage are leading in this segmentation since dispensing systems find some of the largest applications within this industry sector. Modern dispensing systems' high speed, precision and accuracy make them attractive to major food and beverage companies engaged in mass production. Production can be increased substantially with a great reduction in cost.
Dispensing systems are mainly used for bottling milk, soft drinks, alcohol and other beverages. Food processing industries also utilize dispensing systems on a large scale for bottling sauces, jams, pickles and syrups. As increasing consumer demand will spur greater production and generate even more demand for dispensing systems, food and beverage is expected to maintain their dominant position over the coming years.
Asia-Pacific is leading in the global dispensing systems market. The region accounts for the largest market share, primarily due to a large concentration of manufacturing industries. China, Vietnam, India and Thailand are major manufacturing hubs. Similarly, industrialized nations such as South Korea, Taiwan and Japan also generate significant demand for dispensing systems.
