LIMS vendors are targeting different healthcare providers such as diagnostic laboratories, private clinics, blood banks, and other such institutes where use of LIMS is becoming a necessity for providing cost-effective services to their customers.
Developed economies such as the U.S. and Western European countries are witnessing growing demand for technologically-advanced products, which can automate the healthcare process. Patients are becoming tech savvy and are using wearable devices connected with mobile healthcare applications in order to self-monitor their health. This has encouraged healthcare organizations and practitioners to transform their conventional operations by integrating the processes and patient’s critical data.
LIMS is further expected to develop with the formation of a structured regulatory framework for healthcare IT, mainly in developed economies such as the U.S., Canada, and certain Western European nations. This would facilitate exchange of information between the clinicians and patients in a secured manner.
Key takeaways of the market:
Demand for integrated systems is growing, with hospitals and clinical laboratories expanding their footprint by launching franchise chains. The integrated systems segment is projected to witness revenue growth at a CAGR of 7.2% during 2016 – 2024.
Cloud-based systems provide a very cost-effective alternative to conventional systems used by healthcare providers. Market for cloud-based LIMS is expected to reach 339.8 million by 2024. Barriers with respect to security and compliance are gradually coming down leading to a growing demand for cloud-based scalable LIMS systems.
As data analytics and big data are marking its way in the healthcare arena, the LIMS service segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. Data security and monitoring, customer relationship management, and patient engagement are services witnessing increasing traction from healthcare providers.
Hospitals account for the largest market share of 49% (in terms of revenue) among end user segments in the market in 2015. The hospitals segment is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period. Increasing patient database, organizational processes, and tests are propelling adoption of LIMS in hospitals.
Developed countries such as the U.S. and various Western European countries are the foremost adopters of this solution in order to reduce analytical work and improve efficiency. Due to this, North America held a lion’s share of 56.4% (in terms of revenue) in 2015 in the global LIMS market. However, increasing number of healthcare facilities and rising expenditure on healthcare IT in emerging economies is anticipated to fuel demand for LIMS in these countries over the following decade.
Market leader such as Cerner Corporation, Merge Healthcare, Inc. (International Business Machines (IBM) Corp.), McKesson Corporation, LabWare, Roper Technologies Inc., and Meditech (Medical Information Technology, Inc.) are focusing on improving services and integrating new technologies in the current LIMS systems in order to enhance the efficiency of the systems, which in turn would help healthcare providers to offer better customer experience to payers.
