A pipette is a laboratory instrument to transport a specific volume of liquid. The pipette is joined at the end with a pipette tip, forming an air tight seal between them. A pipette tip helps a pipette to dispense a specific volume of liquid. Pipette tips are made of polypropylene and are both disposable and reusable in nature.

Rise in demand for liquid handling systems including pipettes across the world is increasing the demand for pipette tips. Rise in incidence of cancer and AIDS is driving research and development in medical science which is increasing the demand for pipettes. Rise in demand for pipettes is increasing the demand for pipette tips in the medical research and development sector. Research and Development (R&D) in healthcare industries is growing since a decade. In 2017, R&D in health industries had a y-o-y growth of 7.7%, which is driving the demand for pipettes and consequently pipette tips.

Growth in pharmaceutical industries across the world is also increasing the demand for R&D in the pharmaceutical sector, thus increasing the demand for pipettes which consequently increases the demand for pipette tips across the pharmaceutical industry.
