According to IHS Markit, the global Automated Dispensing Cabinet market is projected to enjoy sustained growth over the next five years, despite some regional markets, namely that of the United States, nearing maturity. That said, in the United States the Institute for Safety Medication Practices estimated that over 20% of the healthcare practitioners reported adverse patient effects due to lack of proper monitoring of supply levels as well as inventory management. According to the December 2016 National Pharmacy report, delivery issues, errors with controlled drugs, and mismatching patients with medicines were among the most commonly cited errors. Furthermore, the World Health Organization estimated that medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure approximately 1.3 million people annually in the United States alone. Globally, the picture looks very similar with low and middle income countries estimated to have similar rates of medication-related errors as high income countries. With that in mind, the need for technological advances and investment into equipment in this market is set to continue over the next five years.

Healthcare spending (as a % of GDP) is globally increasing at an accelerated rate. Latin America is forecast to see an 11.5% gain in 2017 following a 6.5% decline in 2016. The growth in healthcare spending in Asia Pacific and in the Middle East and Africa will accelerate in the near future to close to 10% a year from 2019 onwards. With healthcare spending on the rise, investment in medical technology is following suit. As a result, the medical dispensing market is one area set to grow strongly over the next five years.
