The rising need to reduce pharmaceutical errors, rapid decentralisation of pharmacies, rising geriatric population, and rising labour costs are projected to drive the pharmacy automation industry. Reluctance among healthcare organisations to embrace pharmacy automation systems, on the other hand, is likely to limit overall market growth to some amount during the forecast period. According to Market Research Future, the Pharmacy Automation Market is expected to increase from USD 3.63 billion in 2022 to USD 5.38 billion by 2022, with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.2%.
Furthermore, the growing demand for specialised medicine prescription filling solutions, the growing desire to reduce medication errors, and the decentralisation of pharmacies are all driving the pharmacy automation industry.

Factors pushing the use of pharmacy automation systems in retail pharmacies include:
- A growing desire to reduce dispensing errors.
- An increase in the number of retail pharmacies.
- An increase in pharmacist workload.

The complicated and unprecedented issue of managing corporate compliance in a digital environment has raised external pressure on businesses to improve transparency and employ cutting-edge technology. Thanks to recent technological breakthroughs in the pharmacy automation field, numerous automating solutions are now available.
Faster prescription processing, fewer pharmaceutical errors and inventory problems, and lower pharmacy costs are just a few of the benefits. Swisslog Healthcare will introduce The Open Pharmacy platform in June 2020 to assist pharmacies in becoming health centres. It allowed community pharmacies to overcome obstacles and adapt to changing trends as well as expectations. The aforementioned causes are projected to increase demand for these automation systems in the years ahead.
