The Rising Demand for Lab Consumables

The Rising Demand for Lab Consumables

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a statistic worth?

According to Report Linker, the Global Lab Consumables Industry will be worth $8 billion within the next six years. What does this mean? This is an impressive figure that tells us something about how valuable lab consumable products really are.

Potentially exacerbated by COVID, the demand for laboratory testing equipment and consumable goods has skyrocketed. Healthcare manufacturing and laboratories globally are in high demand for sealing equipment, surgical films, and plates.

Innovation and Discovery

This industry thrives on innovation and discovery – none of us got into this business because we were happy with staying put.

Medical and scientific discoveries can’t move as quickly as our minds; they can only move as quickly as our tests and conclusions.

If there aren’t enough safe, sanitary, and high-quality products for innovators to consume, the industry is going to stagnate.


With global demands and intense value that research facilities and life sciences companies place on consumables, it’s not enough to simply have a supplier of quality goods.

What you need is a well-established partnership with the manufacturing capability to supply high-quality goods in high volume.

Laboratories and distributors shouldn’t have to go through the constant push-pull of discovering a new supplier. They need market-ready solutions and high-volume manufacturing capacity able to manage the expectations of a demanding industry.


iST Scientific was created out of a sense of passion for these innovations that drive us.

iST Scientific was not simply in the market for high-quality products. We foresaw the value of laboratory consumables and knew that the demand for them would continue to grow. iST Scientific has a fully operational high-output medical manufacturing system as a result.
