The Laboratory Flask Market To Stay Strong In The Forecast Period

Laboratory (lab) flasks are found in most biological, clinical and industrial laboratories. They are used for variety of other applications. Lab flasks are made from either glass (borosilicate or soda lime) or plastics. The plastic materials include polycarbonate, polypropylene, polymethyl pentene, or PTFE. Laboratory flasks come in various shapes and sizes depending on the application to be used in. Laboratory flasks have been widely used by pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries for cell culture and other experiments.

Recent trends in the laboratory flask market is launch of flasks with cap. These flasks solve the purpose of storage of reagents or reactions after the experiment is completed. Other features which manufacturers are focused on include auto clavable plastic flasks and low binding flasks for application like upstream processing in biotechnology industry. Demand for plastic over glass has been significant over the last decade due to feasibility in usage and maintenance.

Manufacturers in the laboratory flask market are also focused on both manufacturing and distribution of products in emerging as well as developed markets. Prominent manufacturers like Borosil and Schott, prefer to distribute their own products over third party suppliers. Rise in R&D spending and activities, increase in biotechnology companies worldwide, increase in chemical synthesis and drug discovery applications are some of the key factors that are driving the growth of the laboratory flask market. Rise in demand for easy and ready to use flasks like disposable flasks have created huge opportunities for the manufacturers in this market.
