U.S. Virtual Clinical Trials Market To Reach $7.52 Billion By 2030

June 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

U.S. Virtual Clinical Trials Market Growth & Trends

The U.S. virtual clinical trials market size is expected to reach USD 7.52 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.45% from 2023 to 2030. Factors such as the adoption of telehealth, the need for patient diversity clubbed with enhanced data collection in clinical trials, and the increasing digitalization in healthcare are factors driving the growth of the market.

In a virtual paradigm, researchers can use digital tools to speed up hiring, cut down on overheads, and increase inclusivity. For patient-trial matching, for instance, cancer centers are starting to use artificial intelligence (AI). These platforms collect patient data from both structured and unstructured parts of electronic medical records, determine eligibility, and match patients to pertinent open studies in the ClinicalTrials.gov database. They use natural language processing and other AI approaches for this purpose.

The importance of these cutting-edge analytics tools in cancer is rising rapidly, as regulators work to enlarge previously stringent eligibility requirements. This factor is representing lucrative growth opportunities for the virtual clinical trials market in the United States. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine has seen a sharp increase in usage in recent years. This is because most of the sponsors funding research studies have placed a greater emphasis on patient-centricity.

One of the biggest obstacles to patient enrollment and retention in clinical trials is the patient's geographic location and/or socioeconomic class. This is addressed via telemedicine, which also improves the possibility of better patient diversity. This provides a more realistic picture of a certain illness in a population and the potential effects of an investigational drug on that population. Furthermore, patients can interact with researchers as well as the treating doctors more effectively, when telemedicine is used in clinical research.  

The pandemic switched research attention from study clinics to homes, leading researchers to consider novel methods for data gathering. The FDA published instructions to temporarily increase access to noninvasive medical devices for remote patient monitoring, such as electrocardiographs and spirometers. Researchers have changed the assessment frequency specifically in oncology. These developments are compatible with the virtual trial approach, which aims to increase the ability of studies to gauge patient-reported outcomes and produce real-world data. The U.S. market for virtual clinical trials has observed notable growth due to the pandemic.
