The Global Laboratory Plasticware Market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period, with revenue reaching USD 3.06 billion by 2028. The increased demand for laboratories worldwide and the need for disposable equipment has been a major contributor to this growth in recent years. Laboratories are important facilities that offer diverse services such as analysis, testing, research, development, and production of products or substances - all under controlled conditions and procedures - which not only helps them reduce risks but also ensures safety standards are met before any commercialization takes place.
Laboratory Plasticware is a term used to describe the laboratory equipment that comprises items made from plastics. It includes disposable items such as test tubes, Petri dishes, beakers, and pipettes which are often used in laboratories for conducting experiments during research or analysis. These products can also find use in educational institutions where they are extensively utilized by students learning about science topics. Laboratory Plasticware helps reduce risks associated with working on glass and other fragile materials while ensuring safety standards are met before any commercialization takes place so it has become an indispensable part of the global lab infrastructure across industries ranging from agriculture to healthcare sectors.
The uses of laboratory plasticware are almost as diverse as the industries they serve. Some common applications include:
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Glassware and Plasticware. Among these, the application of glassware is greater than plastic ware in the education segment owing to its low price as compared with plastics.
Glassware is a type of laboratory equipment that is made from glass and includes beakers, flasks, test tubes, pipettes, burettes, etc. It has better thermal stability as compared to plastic vessels which require autoclaving before reuse in medical institutions or schools. Hence it finds application for carrying out experiments involving heat up to 350°C (662°F). In addition, Glassware can withstand high mechanical pressure - up to 20 atmospheres at 400 °C without any problem. It should not be used in corrosive conditions such as acids and alkalis due to the risk of breakage so there are some limitations on its use. However due to these advantages over plastics like they are more hygienic than plastic ware and can be reused; hence, glassware is a preferred material in laboratory settings.
Plasticware is used as an alternative to glassware in laboratories. Plasticware does not require any cleaning and sterilization before use, making it easy for the user. For example, if a lab was using beakers during chemical reactions they would need to clean them with soapy water or by boiling them after usage; however plastic vessels do not require this because they are already sterile. One of the drawbacks of Plasticware is that when heated up too much higher than its temperature range allows for (e.g., 400°C) then it will start melting/deforming which can happen more easily due to its lower density compared to glassware. Another disadvantage is that plastics induce leaching from chemicals.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into schools, Scientific Research Institutions, and Others. The school segment dominated the market with a share of more than 50%. This can be attributed to the increasing use of Plasticware in laboratories by college students for practicals purposes like heating up liquids or baking items due to its durability. Furthermore, many schools are switching over from glassware on account of their increased safety concerns leading them towards plastic ware which does not break as easily while also being easier to clean.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The market in the Americas is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to increased activities of manufacturing companies coupled with improved adoption rates for plastics. The European region is expected to witness moderate growth by 2028. The major factors that restrain this market are strict regulations and the high costs of plastics as compared with glassware.
The Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa regions show a promising future due to increasing population coupled with growing awareness about safety in laboratories these will result in a higher penetration rate of disposable laboratory ware among students which provides immense scope for new players operating within Asia Pacific region especially China-based manufacturing companies such as Jiangsu Lianzhong Plastics Co., Ltd. Latin America has low per capita spending on research activities compared to other countries hence limited demand from schools has led to slow demand for disposable laboratory ware.
