This can be attributed to their low cost as compared with other types of lab balances available in the market.

Global Laboratory Balances and Scales Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A laboratory balance is a scientific instrument used to measure the mass or weight of an object. Laboratory balances are typically used in chemistry and physics laboratories to accurately measure the mass of small objects. A scale is a similar instrument that measures weight rather than mass. The importance of laboratory balances and scales lies in their ability to provide precise measurements for scientific experiments.


The mechanical is a system which measures weight and other physical properties. It's major application includes laboratory balances and scales, where it's used to measure small masses or very high accuracy up to 1g with second weighing options. Mechanical balance consists of two armatures connected by a beam which can be used for static or dynamic weighing applications. The most commonly known digital mechanical scale is the bathroom scales, due to its easy accessibility and portability from anywhere in the house.


The digital and it’s usage in laboratory balances and scales market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The major factor that propels the growth of this market includes increasing demand for lab balance & scale instruments across various end-use industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical, environmental testing laboratories among others. Moreover, growing technological advancements coupled with rising awareness regarding advanced lab balance & scale instruments also contributes towards the development of this market significantly.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes food, agriculture and medical. The demand for laboratory balances and scales in the food industry is anticipated to witness growth at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to an increase in the number of fast-food restaurants across the globe. This has led to an increased demand for weighing equipment, which will benefit market growth over the next eight years.

In addition, there has been a rise in consumer awareness regarding health issues associated with under-eating or over-eating due to lack of knowledge about portion control leading to higher consumption of healthy eating habits that will also drive product demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, laboratory balance scales are used extensively by farmers and agricultural scientists as they provide accurate results while measuring small quantities of chemicals or fertilizers etc., which is expected fuel product demand further during this period.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing investments in R&D and technological advancements by various companies operating within the region. Moreover, high adoption of laboratory equipment and favorable reimbursement policies are also contributing towards growth within this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to rising demand for technologically advanced products coupled with constantly improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries such as China, India, Singapore, Thailand & Japan (CSTJ). Furthermore, economic development along with increased government spending on healthcare has led to an increase in demand for lab equipment across this region which will further boost industry expansion over next eight years  time frame.

Europe held a significant share of global revenue due to growing interest among individuals & professionals regarding usage of these balances & scales for chemical analysis pertaining weight loss programs.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for laboratory balances and scales in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for R&D purposes.
  • Growing demand from academic research institutes for laboratory balances and scales to carry out precision experiments.
  • Rising popularity of microbalances and analytical balances among researchers for their high accuracy levels.
  • Proliferation of contract research organizations (CROs) that require sophisticated laboratory equipment, including balances and scales, for drug development services provisioning
