Industry Insights

The global laboratory informatics market size was valued at USD 2.15 Billion in 2015. The market is anticipated to witness growth due to the rising demand of scientific data integration solutions amongst the end-use industries including life sciences, contract research organizations, food & beverage, and chemical.

Increasing need for clinical workflow management in laboratories to improve operational efficiency is expected to propel the growth in the coming years. Furthermore, rising adoption of Laboratory Information Systems (LIMS) amongst independent and hospital-based labs to reduce the incidence of diagnostic errors and manage high data volumes is likely to boost the growth of the lab informatics market over the forecast period.

The LIMS market witnessed significant growth in the past few years due to its widespread incorporation amongst laboratories to tackle operational workflow issues associated with regulatory compliance and data security.

In addition, the introduction of technologically advanced software solutions that facilitate clinical laboratory workflow management is anticipated to drive the demand over the forecast period. For instance, many laboratories incorporate Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software to streamline the processing of sample data delivered to public health organizations. The high-margin software solutions, which are customized as per client requirements by manufacturers, generate greater profit in this sector.

Product Insights- LIMS systems to experience fastest growth

LIMS accounts for a dominant share in the laboratory informatics sector on account of several functional features offered by this system. These include management of master data, sample lifecycle, reporting, security & system administration, stability study, schedule, instrument, inventory, storage capacity & logistics, and analytical workflow. Also, the superior electronic lab notebooks system segment is expected to witness a surge in its demand amongst the researchers due to its increasing use in analytical chemistry labs.

Delivery Mode Insights

The On-premise delivery mode in the laboratory informatics dominated the delivery mode segment with around 54.0% share in 2015. However, the cloud-based services segment is expected to supersede the on-premise segment and grow at a lucrative CAGR over the forecast period. The benefits associated with the cloud-based system, which includes real-time data entry and remote access, are anticipated to fuel the segment growth in the coming years.

Component Insights

Key components analyzed in the laboratory information systems vertical are software and services. Services segment held the dominant share in 2015 and is expected to exhibit a sturdy growth rate in the future.

On the other hand, the software segment is anticipated to exhibit the fastest CAGR owing to the introduction of technologically advanced software solution, such as SaaS, which has revolutionized LIMS in laboratories.

End-use Insights

Life sciences industry was the largest end-use segment and accounted for a share of over 35.0% in 2015. Increasing advances in the healthcare industry due to rising R&D activities in the field of medicinal research is anticipated to fuel the demand for laboratory information systems in the coming years.

Increasing incorporation of LIMS, particularly in research & hospital labs, on account of its growing application scope, including patient engagement, patient health information tracking, workflow management, billing, and quality assurance at hospitals, labs, and other life science companies, is expected to propel the growth. The CRO segment is anticipated to grow lucratively over the forecast period due to the increasing outsourcing trend in the pharmaceutical & biotech industries.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest share of over 45% in 2015. The presence of established pharmaceutical companies and research labs coupled with higher awareness levels of LIMS amongst the end-users is expected to drive the demand. Furthermore, increasing R&D activities in the biotech & pharmaceutical industry and the existence of stringent regulatory compliance requirements is expected to fuel the growth of this vertical during the forecast period.
