NEW YORK, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Pharmacy Automation: Technologies and Global Markets
The global pharmacy automation market reached nearly $3.0 billion in 2012. This market is expected to grow to nearly $3.2 billion in 2013 and $4.9 billion in 2018 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8% over the five-year period, 2013 to 2018
This report provides:
An overview of the global market for pharmacy automation.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018.
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
Comprehensive profiles of leading companies in the industry.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research report, Pharmacy Automation: Technologies and Global Markets (IAS026D), provides a comprehensive analysis of the pharmacy automation market's current operations and equipment, current trends and detailed patent analysis. The study includes information regarding statistics for medication errors, costs associated with pharmacy activities, the pharmacist shortage and many other issues affecting the pharmacy automation market. Major pharmacy automation product segments include in-depth market and competitive analyses.
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 to 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 surface—from 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.
CONTRIBUTION OF THE STUDY AND FOR WHOM
The intended audience includes all the stakeholders of the pharmacy market: drug manufacturing companies, drug vendors, independent pharmacies, hospitals, retail pharmacy chains. This includes mostly manufacturers, retailers and super retailers, technology providers, and research and development (R&D) companies.With its broad scope and in-depth analyses, this study will prove to be a valuable resource to anyone involved with or interested in the operations of pharmacy and more specifically automating pharmacy processes.
This study will provide information on these areas:
Structure and current market size of the pharmacy automation market as outlined with forecasts through 2018.
Impact of chronic diseases, growing and aging populations.
Current product suppliers and some of their technologies.
An in-depth market evaluation of the U.S. pharmacy automation market.
A look at the pharmacy service industry and its value.
Markets for United States; Europe; and where available Asia Pacific, Latin America and the rest of world.
Technology patent trends relating to automating processes in the pharmacy environment.
Profiles for more than 20 companies in the industry with significant contributions and market shares.
Since the study provides business and technical information of a timely nature, it will prove valuable to a variety of readers, including industry executives, managers and planners, purchases, industry analysts and investors. The projections, forecasts and trend analyses found in this report provide readers with the necessary data and information for careful decision-making and system implementation, upgrades and new developments.
SCOPE AND FORMAT
This BCC Research 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/Canada 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 with other subsettings:
Inpatient pharmacy automation.
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 extrapolated to provide detailed information of current and emerging products, current market estimates and market forecasts, and competitive analyses.
METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
The information for this BCC Research report was obtained through primary and secondary data-collection methods. Primary methods included interviews with approximately 60 key executives, product managers and clinical specialists involved in the pharmacy automation industry. Secondary methods included published literature in the area of pharmacy technology and services, investment reports, company literature and various pharmacy-related business journals.All market data pertains the global market at the manufacturers' level.
Data are expressed in current U.S. dollars. The base year of the report is 2013, with historical data provided for 2011 and 2012, and forecast data provided for 2018. Historical base year and forecast data are provided for each market segment of the report. Competitor market share estimates are provided for each market segment for the 2013 base year.Although this study provides information on a variety of pharmacy automation equipment, it does not include a comprehensive list of products available. Many companies offer products to a variety of industry types, including, but not limited to, the following industries:
Electrical and electronics industry.
Food production industry.
Some systems not covered in this study include those that are primarily used in other industry types but are, however, designed to accommodate other settings, including the medical and pharmacy industries.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
