Laboratory Refrigerators and Ovens
The global market for laboratory refrigerators and ovens is projected to reach $1.2 billion by 2018. Energy efficiency has emerged as the major factor influencing the choice of laboratory refrigerators/freezers as well as laboratory ovens among end-users. This can be mainly attributed to the topical rise in operating costs in recent times, due to which laboratories across the globe are faced with the compelling need to optimize expenditures. Accordingly, laboratories are taking a closer examination of various product aspects, such as sample compatibility, storage capacity, energy consumption as well as rates and generation of noise and heat in smaller areas, before making a purchasing decision. Laboratory refrigerators/freezers, unlike conventional food storage refrigerators, are usually equipped with mechanically circulated air system, sturdy cabinet and an air-cooled refrigeration system. In order to provide efficient laboratory refrigeration systems there is a need for designing systems that remove heat and yield low temperatures.
Major players in this market include Carbolite Ltd., Chart Industries Inc., Marvel Scientific, New Brunswick Scientific Co., NuAire Inc., Panasonic Healthcare Co., Ltd., SPX Corp., Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Thermogenesis Corp., among others.

Laboratory Glassware and Plasticware
The global market for laboratory glassware and plasticware is projected to reach $6.16 billion by 2018. Given the growth in laboratory equipment market, the laboratory glassware and plasticware market has also witnessed substantial growth in recent times. Conventionally, glass has been the principal material for majority of laboratory ware owing to its extensive thermal and chemical resistance. Glass maintains its dimensional stability even at elevated temperatures and offers high transparency. These properties have made glass a predominant choice for fabrication of most of the laboratory ware such as pipettes, burettes, test tubes, beakers, bottles, flasks, funnels, measuring cylinders, and a range of other similar equipment used in laboratories. However, in recent years plastic is gradually making way into the laboratory settings due to several advantages. Primary among them is the safety from breakage while handling hazardous chemicals and radioactive substances. The unbreakable nature of plasticware prevents damages and injuries. With the increasing use of hazardous materials in laboratories, leak proof plastic containers are widely considered to be the best storage products. Laboratory plasticware is also very cheap and can be easily shaped into different forms.
Major players in the global marketplace include manufacturing companies such as Bellco Glass Inc., Eppendorf AG, Gerresheimer AG, Kimble Chase Life Science, Duran Group GmbH, Mettler-Toledo International Inc., Rainin Instrument LLC, Sartorius Biohit Liquid Handling Oy (Finland), Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Nalge Nunc International Corporation, and Wheaton Science Products, among others.

Pipettes and Pipettors
Technological advances continue to transform the global analytical instruments industry, although more in an evolutionary manner. Today, large-scale applications in life sciences and biomedical research drive the use of advanced pipettes and pipettors. The global market for pipettes and pipettors is forecast to reach $1.1 billion by the year 2018.
As the importance of laboratory ergonomics comes into play, pipette ergonomy is not surprisingly gaining in significance in recent years. Hence pipette manufacturers are increasingly giving due importance to ergonomics of pipette, as buyers continue to seek comfortably designed instruments that do not require unnatural motion of fingers. New products incorporate automation features, resist contamination, handle corrosive and hazardous fluids and are suitable for repetitive procedures. With users placing more importance to precision and safety, electronic pipettors continue to gain share over mechanical ones.

High Temperature Plastics
The global market for high temperature plastics (HTPs) is projected to reach 1.2 billion pounds by the year 2018. High temperature plastics (HTPs) experienced a severe decline that surfaced in 2008 due to a slump in demand from major end-use industries such as automobile, electronics, and chemical amidst the economic slowdown. However, demand began to recover in the market as end-use industries began emerging from the fallout of the economic crisis, driving volume and value demands up. The overall market is expected to surpass pre-recession levels in 2012 in value as well as volume terms.
Major players in the marketplace include Celanese Corporation, Chevron Philips Chemical Company, China Lumena New Materials Corp., Daikin Industries Ltd., DSM Engineering Plastics B.V, DuPont Engineering Polymers, Dyneon LLC, Evonik Degussa, Kuraray Co., Ltd., Rhodia Engineering Plastics, and Solvay Group, among others.
