The global Pharmacy Automation Systems Market has witnessed substantial growth over the past few years and is further expected to grow in the near future. Factors such as the increasing number of drug prescriptions with the rising aging population and the shift from centralized to decentralized pharmacies drive the growth of this market. Moreover, the need for cost reduction due to the increasing healthcare costs, reduction of medication errors with improved work efficiency within the pharmacies, and awareness regarding the provision of additional time to clinicians and pharmacists for patient care is further expected to boost the demand for pharmacy automation systems.
However, stringent regulatory guidelines that delay product launches, high costs of implementation, and limited budgets of the healthcare organizations that restrict the investment in automation are some of the key factors that inhibit the growth of the global pharmacy automation market.
