Global Pharmacy Automation Systems Market Assessment & Forecast: 2015-2019

The Number of Pharmaceuticals Is Increasing Day-by-Day

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - April 04, 2016) -  Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Pharmacy Automation Systems Market Assessment & Forecast: 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Ageing population, presence of large hospital chains as well as pharmacy chains and purchase power for healthcare technology helped North America to be early adopters and innovators of technology. Identification of new diseases and conditions, innovation and introduction of large number of drugs each year has made it difficult for pharmacists to keep track manually thus inclining them towards automation with the help of software systems and well as hardware components.

The number of pharmaceuticals is increasing day-by-day along with the number of patients walking into a pharmacy. Pharmacists began committing errors in more pronounced numbers since it is becoming difficult to track patients and hundreds of different medications. Hence an automated system that can read prescription and point pharmacists on where to get it or robots that can fetch the drugs by themselves is being greatly appreciated. As chronic and acute diseases continue to increase, automation is expected to be in great demand to address rising number of patients. This will also address the demand for proper documentation of pharmaceuticals till the patient.

The market conventionally has been led by the western countries due to the presence of large number of companies operating within the region. The markets for Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Africa will prove to be a challenge for adoption of the technology primarily due to lack of purchase power.

In addition, the lack of suitable reimbursement system, healthcare framework may lead to feebler results. Pharmacies in United States have commonly registered several issues with automation such as wrong drug and wrong dose errors and errors due to look-alike packaging. In emerging economies where there is a large presence of local manufacturers that have derived packaging styles from renowned brands overseas, these problems may be amplified multi-fold.
