Published Date: February 10, 2021 Authors: Sumant Ugalmugle, Rupali Swain
eClinical Solutions Market size is set to surpass USD 14.5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
eClinical solutions market growth is due to increasing R&D expenditure coupled with advancements in technologies. For instance, clinical trials involves various phases from identification of lead compounds to post marketing surveillance that require high investments in R&D activities. Thus, investment in technology and big data will continue to play an important role in the expansion of eClinical solutions. Moreover, high adoption of eClinical solutions along with rising government grants to validate the clinical trials will accelerate the market revenue.
Increasing acceptance of software solutions in clinical trials will boost the market expansion
The amount of data produced by hospitals and other pharmaceutical companies in various clinical trials is huge. This data contains information that can be easily accessed with electronic data mining including EHR that was earlier impossible with paper records. For instance, it is reported that the typical tertiary care hospital generates about 100 terabytes (TB) of data every year. Similarly, health systems in low- and middle-income nations continue to face many challenges in providing affordable, universally accessible and high-quality care. Therefore, in response to such shortcoming, the software developers are developing innovative approaches and solutions such as CTMS, CDMS and eCOA among others to eliminate the geographical and financial barriers to health. Thus, the need to maintain transparency and eliminate redundancy of the medical research-related data are the primary reasons for the widespread usage of these software solutions, thereby, fostering the market value.
Lack of awareness pertaining to benefits of eClinical solutions in developing nations may slow down the eClinical solutions market demand. eClinical solutions facilitates data exploration across various studies and enables self-service exploratory analysis to ensure patient safety and regulatory compliance. However, upgradation and innovation in eClinical software is the major factor that escalates the cost of solution. Developing countries have low disposable income resulting in less healthcare expenditure, thereby, restraining the industry growth. Furthermore, prominent market players are trying to develop innovative solutions, but high cost of these solutions is adversely affecting its adoption rate in developing countries.
Demand for randomization and trial supply management (RTSM) is expected to increase as it prevents biasness between patient pool during the clinical trials
The randomization and trial supply management segment accounted for 17% of the eClinical solutions market share in 2020. Randomization in clinical trials play a crucial role, as it prevents biasness between patient pool during the clinical trials. The patient either receives investigational product or placebo. This is important as it provides specific balance between various group of patients such as their age, gender and various factors in one study. Thus, advantages including simple accessibility associated with RTSM will upsurge the segment growth. Additionally, implementation of RTSM software allows users to access simple randomization schedules to complex algorithms by following specific protocols, thereby supplementing the industry expansion.
Cloud-based (SAAS) solution will show tremendous growth in the future
The cloud based (SAAS) solutions segment in the eClinical solutions market is projected to reach USD 5.5 billion by 2027. In cloud-based solution, the information is stored in the central location and maintained by the third party that is the service provider of cloud-based solution. The solution helps to store the complex data of clinical studies. Also, the solution provides real time data that enables users for high quality information and take quick decisions for risk-based monitoring. Thus, advantages associated with usage of cloud-based solution will spur the segment revenue. Cloud-based solutions have integrated features such as easy data backup, high accessibility and flexibility among others. This enables for more usage of cloud-based solutions, thereby augmenting the market growth.
