Which Region is projected to Offer the Largest Opportunity for Laboratory information management systems?

Accounting for over 40% of the global revenue, laboratory information management systems market in North America is expected to score an absolute $ opportunity of around $900 Mn during 2022 - 2032. The existence of multiple global players in this region, and due to the well-established healthcare industry and improved reimbursement facilities, North America is likely to retain its dominant position in terms of market share in the future. Because of the higher adoption of digital healthcare in the country and increased expenditures made by enterprises there, the United States occupies the bulk of the market in North American.

Europe is the next region which falls just below North America in terms of market share of Laboratory information management systems. In 2017, the European Commission announced its plans to invest $37 billion in LIMS between 2018 and 2020, with $2.5 Bn allocated to Open Science and $740 Mn to the European Open Science Cloud, European data infrastructure, and high-performance computing.

As another development, Horizon 2020 has made financing available for future and emerging technologies, as well as for life science researchers under the ICT Work Programme. Increasing R&D activities and government financing will, in turn, enhance demand for good data management and, as a result, propel the European laboratory informatics market forward.

Country-wise Analysis

Which Country Lies at the Centerstage for Laboratory Information Management Systems Services?

North America now dominates the laboratory information management systems industry and is projected to do so for a few years longer. The United States maintains the largest market share in the North America. The United States is the world's most COVID-affected country.

The requirement for data sharing across platforms and with patients has become critical in the COVID-19 pandemic. Data must move readily from diagnostic centres to hospitals to proven positive patients without jeopardising privacy or other important aspects of ethical care and research. As a result, healthcare professionals in the United States are focusing on digital information systems to keep track of the overall number of tests performed, treatment results, shifting case definitions, and expedite a variety of other activities. As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, laboratory informatics systems are more likely to be used and adopted today and in the future.

Furthermore, the geriatric population in the United States is rapidly increasing, and this group is linked to a number of ailments. As a result, as the number of lifestyle problems rises, so will the demand for laboratory examinations. These laboratory systems aid in increasing productivity.
