Saudi Arabia healthcare sector is the largest in the Middle East, and both healthcare services and training have become top priorities for the Saudi Arabian Government, with 13.5% of the government’s spending devoted to the healthcare sector. With growing demand and increased yearly healthcare spending, the sector has emerged as an area of opportunity for economic growth in Saudi Arabia. The contribution of health services to Saudi Arabia’s GDP will increase by over 13% through 2025, with the Eastern Province, Al-Jouf, Riyadh, and Makkah experiencing the greatest near-term sector growth.

The Saudi Arabia laboratories market growth is driven by the growing burden of infectious and chronic diseases, increasing government funding and grants for research and development are among the key factors driving the market growth. Increasing government funding and grants for research and development is expected to drive the Saudi Arabia laboratories market during the forecast period

The Research and Development Office (RDO) of the Ministry of Education was established in 2017 to transform the R&D ecosystem through strategic initiatives to enhance the research capacity in Saudi Arabia. Based on the RDO’s, as well as the need to strengthen the capacity of research in the country, the Saudi Arabia International Collaboration Grant will be implemented following the Conference to heighten the country's joint international research collaborations.

The funding available will be in the form of a competitive research grant to be selected based on a peer review process and will represent a substantial investment in growing the country's R&D network. This will accelerate and improve research output while building upon the complementary capabilities of both universities.

Collaborations selected for funding for this grant will be eligible to receive between SAR 0.6 and 1.8 million ($160,000 - $480,000 USD) over the course of three years on an annual installment basis. Thus, the growing research and development in the country that is funded by the government have to surge the demand for laboratory equipment which is further driving the growth of the market in the forecast period. 

Lack of research & development in the country is likely to hinder the market growth

Saudi Arabia is far behind other developed countries in healthcare research and development, a total of 924 students participated in a study to find medical students’ opinions about research in Saudi Arabia. Approximately 10.3% of the students reported that they were not knowledgeable about the significance and prominence of scientific research. While 44.3% stated that they had no knowledge of the research methodology. Research is one of the most crucial topics that should hold paramount consideration.

Many Universities which are teaching healthcare subjects lack trained technicians in their laboratories. The untrained staff does have not the proper skills to train students. This factor will hamper the growth of the market in the forecast period. Pricing pressure and cost-cutting are major concerns for laboratory equipment manufacturers. Pricing pressure due to government regulations, competitive pricing, and others, compels manufacturers to cut costs. 

Thus, all the mentioned factors will hinder the growth of the market of Saudi Arabia laboratories in the forecast period. The global Saudi Arabia laboratories market provides in-depth analysis of the market based on various industry factors such as porter’s five force analysis, regulatory analysis, trade analysis etc.

Saudi Arabia Laboratories Market - Segment Analysis

The analytical equipment segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)

Analytical equipment encompasses a wide range of instrumentation whose principle purpose is to qualitatively and quantitatively analyze samples, the chemical makeup of a sample and the quantity of each component within a sample. The wide range of available equipment also allows for a wide range of testing methods and their respective applications. This equipment is used in a variety of fields, given its cross-discipline compatibility in analyzing samples. It includes those used in spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, electrochemical analysis, thermal analysis, separation analysis, microscopy, and various hybrid technologies.

Examples of analytical equipment include mass spectrometers, chromatographs (GC and HPLC), titrators, spectrometers (AAS, X-ray, and fluorescence), particle size analyzers, rheometers, elemental analyzers (salt analyzers, CHN analyzers), thermal analyzers, and more. In Saudi Arabia, analytical equipment is imported from various countries, basically from India because it cost very low as compared to other country vendors. China also supplies the analytical equipment but the Indian one follows high standard protocol.

For instance, PCI Analytics the Indian company now stretching its export market to Saudi Arabia. The company's quality products are already been serving the Saudi Arabs. It has a good network in Saudi Arabia and has plans to increase there export to Saudi Arabia this year.
