STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
This BCC Research report, Pharmacy Automation: Technologies and Global Markets (IAS026E), 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 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.

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 and developed Europe, with supplemental data covering other geographical markets and trends.
