High costs of machine and availability of cheaper labor to hinder the growth of global medication pouch inspection systems market
The technological advancement and ease in operations provided by inspection system makes it a high costing machine. Moreover, the price of a medication dispensing system starts from around US$ 200,000 and the price of medication pouch inspection system starts from around US$ 70,000, and a majority of pharmacies are not capable of investing such a high capital.
