Through regional analysis, the report concludes that most of the developing regions are not willing to accept pharmacy automation technology in their medical environments. This limitation is due to a common stance among governments and consumers in emerging regions in opposition to automation technologies, due to the easy availability of a cheaper workforce. The high cost of pharmacy automation devices and their installation in medical and clinical settings is predicted to be another limiting factor for the market in developing regions. 

However, developed regions such as North America and Europe, and developed countries in other regions such as the Middle East, and Rest of the World (ROW) are some of the fastest growing regional segments in this market. Demand for pharmacy automation systems from these regions is expected to increase tremendously with rising investment in each region’s healthcare infrastructure and growing public awareness. The fusion of advanced automation technology with conventional pharmacy systems has reduced medication costs, medication errors, and delivery time, increasing the overall control over the pharmacy inventory. Recent advancements in automated technologies and related solutions are emerging as the most effective tools to improve patient safety and reduce medication errors. Increasing installations of automated systems help healthcare providers and pharmacists lower pharmacy costs, due to the higher efficiency brought about by the automated systems. 
The pharmacy automation systems industry is highly fragmented and competition varies from segment to segment. The report segments the global pharmacy automation market based on key end users, major regional markets, and by technology. Some of the typical systems and processes automated in the market and covered in this study report are automated packaging and labeling, automated dispensing systems, storage and retrieval systems, table-top counters, and automated compounding systems.   Of all, the market segment of automated medication dispensing systems held around 48% of the overall market in 2011, becoming the largest among all segments studied in the report. The revenue generated by this segment was US$2.3 bn in 2011, with expectations to reach US$3.6 bn by 2018, showing a CAGR of 6.7% between 2012 and 2018.
