The COVID-19 outbreak is encouraging the adoption of healthcare laboratory informatics solutions. Laboratory information management system (LIMS), in particular, is largely gaining momentum to provide timely, reliable information to optimize care delivery for COVID-19 and other patients. Also, various healthcare laboratory informatics market players and regulatory bodies are rapidly developing artificial intelligence and data analytics in healthcare to conduct research on the virus.

Rising demand of scientific data integration solution will upsurge the healthcare laboratory informatics market progression

Increasing volume of data is being collected within the scientific and life science community. Numerous experiments and research generate large volume of data that has to be stored and used for drawing a conclusion of the research. For instance, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) report, the volume of healthcare data in 2013 was 153 exabytes and is anticipated to be 2,314 exabytes in 2020. Thus, use of data integration solutions such as electronic health record and scientific data management among others to manage high volume data and complex data models will augment the industry growth. Further, increasing requirement for laboratory automation, increasing accessibility to cost-effective informatics solutions and technological advancements is projected to escalate demand for healthcare laboratory informatic solutions.

Dearth of integration standards may slow down the healthcare laboratory informatics market demand

Integration of data is a challenging task and majority of the companies have difficulties in data integration. The healthcare executives believe that lack of data standards are the significant obstacles to improving patient matching. The patient matching is a major problem in healthcare and a major barrier in achieving full interoperability. Since, the difference between patient’s data and their medical history may lead to missed diagnosis or treatment and endanger patient safety.

Advantages associated with LIMS will foster the segment growth

Laboratory information management system (LIMS) segment in the healthcare laboratory informatics market crossed USD 821.5 million in 2020 and will reach USD 1.55 billion by 2027. High segment progression is attributed to the advantages associated with LIMS. Laboratory information management system manages the flow of work and information through a laboratory. It is comprehensive and sample centric software tool used for centralizing lab's operational workflows. It is used by many commercial and private organizations such as pharmaceuticals, R&D, manufacturing, beverages and food.

Growing adoption of cloud-based service in healthcare sector will stimulate the market revenue

The cloud-based solutions in the healthcare laboratory informatics market captured USD 1.49 billion in 2020. Cloud-based solution is on the rise in healthcare as hospital administrators, physicians, and patients demand access to information, cost efficiency, and security. Cloud services will continue to play an important role, as healthcare laboratory informatics organizations are inclining towards critical business applications. Also, it enables organizations to be more responsive towards needs of business. This increases the demand for cloud-based services in the healthcare sector, thereby supplementing the segment size. Moreover, it also saves cost on infrastructure, deployment time, and IT resources during healthcare laboratory informatics solutions implementation, thereby supporting the industry expansion in the coming years.

Service segment will dominate the market

Services segment dominated more than 65.4% of the healthcare laboratory informatics market share in 2020 led by the growing demand for cost-effective, secure and reliable services. The services delivering laboratory efficiencies that improve quality standards, increase productivity and facilitate regulatory compliance is estimated to influence the industry value. Further, rising demand for cost efficiency, access to information, and security among various healthcare settings might impact the segment demand during the forecast timeline.

Pharmaceutical companies will enhance the healthcare laboratory informatics market expansion

The pharmaceutical companies segment captured 37% of revenue share in 2020. Pharma companies are required to manage massive amounts of data to store important information. For instance, Astellas stored 50 TB data to the cloud to provide data scientists and marketing experts with online access to clinical, pharma, and real-world data. Such huge amounts of data are difficult and, sometimes impossible to manage and store on premise. Thus, usage of informatic solution by pharmaceutical companies can potentially increase the demand and impel the industry revenue. Additionally, the charges of cloud storage services depend on usage and are priced at a significantly lower rate than traditional storage, thus driving the industry demand during the forecast timeframe.
