High Throughput Screening Market is expected to value over USD 24 billion by 2027 end with a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growing financial assistance by private and public organizations for research and development activities, advancements in the high throughput screening technology and increased initiatives taken by biotech and pharma companies for promoting this technology are some of the crucial factors contributing to the growth of the market. High throughput screening is primarily used for conducting different chemical, pharmacological and genetic tests that help in the entire process of drug discovery which involves devices for liquid handling, control software, identification of active compounds, biomolecular and genetic interactions. Additionally, this method helps in screening a variety of compounds up to over 10,000 compounds daily and by using UHTS, it can conduct over 100,000 assays per day. 
There has been an extensive research conducted by major pharmaceutical companies. For instance, the UK’s Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology collaborated with AstraZeneca and UCB in August 2017 for speeding the research of drug discovery by offering their academic research along with industrial expertise and infrastructure. However, a lack of skilled labour shall impede the high throughput screening market growth. Furthermore, the processes of target characterization and selection, compound screening, assay development require a lot of time and are expensive to perform, thereby limiting the growth of the market. Moreover, programs like ‘Toxicology in the 21st Century’, a joint venture of the US FDA, EPA and the US NIH, use automated HTS for testing environmental drugs, chemicals and formulation for an extensive toxicological evaluation and in developing pathways that are associated to the disease and can predict the toxicological levels. Such ventures shall pave way for lucrative opportunities to the proliferation of the market.

The market is classified into products and services, technology, application, end user and region. The products and services segment is fragmented into reagents and assay kits, instruments, software and services. The reagents and assay kits segment held the largest high throughput screening market share and this can be credited to an increased used of assay kits and reactors in HTS method, growing occurrences of chronic diseases, increase in the number of research and development activities by pharmaceutical companies, surging assistance from government through massive funding for research in the life sciences sector. However, the software segment is predicted to showcase significant growth during the forecasted timeframe, and this is due to the soaring automation of HTS and the ease of availability of software tools required for data management. 
The technology segment is divided into cell-based assay which is further divided into 2D cell culture and 3D cell culture, lab-on-a-chip, ultra-high throughput screening, bioinformatics and label-free technology. The label-free technology is predicted to record the highest growth during the forecasted timeframe, and this is primarily due to advancements that have improved the throughput, cost, sensitivity and data analysis level. Using assays that are biologically relevant is the new high throughput screening market trend which shall provide growth opportunities for the market. The end user segment is fragmented into CROs, academic and government institutes, pharmaceutical and biotech companies and other end users. The pharmaceutical and biotech companies are expected to lead the market, and this is due to the in-depth usage of HTS technology in these companies for application related to drug discovery.
