April 16, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., April 16, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on the U.S. market for medical automation technologies, that as technology advances, new functions are being added to automated health assessment and monitoring tools. The current generation of automated health assessment and monitoring tools are not intended to substitute the need for a physician or other healthcare professional.

Medical automation technologies are electronics for the electromechanical operation of diagnostic (or therapeutic) systems of healthcare professionals, and which result in a reduced need (or eliminate the need) for human intervention. The U.S. market for such technologies was worth an estimated $16.3 billion in 2014. BCC Research expects this market to grow to $17.5 billion in 2015 and nearly $26.5 billion by 2020, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% over the next five years.

Therapeutic applications account for the largest share of the medical automation market, 55.2% in 2014, declining to 49% by 2020. Diagnostic and monitoring applications represented 40.7% of the market in 2014, increasing to 44.4% by 2020, with logistics and training holding the remainder.

Automated devices used for therapeutic applications, other than surgery, include automated cardiac defibrillators and medication delivery systems. The use of automated medication delivery systems is intended to reduce medication errors, improve patient compliance with a medication regime and increase patient comfort and convenience.

“Automation is an important tool for clinical laboratories to use for achieving higher productivity and cost-efficiency,” says BCC Research analyst Andrew McWilliams. “Laboratory automation covers a wide range of processes that occur in the lab, from the receipt of the sample to the reporting of the validated results. Specific solutions range from the automation of specific instruments or processes to total laboratory-wide automation.”

Medical Automation Technologies, Products and Markets identifies and quantifies the current and future market opportunities associated with medical automation. Projections of the potential U.S. markets for these technologies are studied through 2020.
