Laboratory Information Management System Market Size Forecast to Reach $1.57 Billion by 2025

Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Market size is forecast to reach $1.57 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 11.29% during the forecast period 2020-2025. Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is software that allows us to effectively manage samples and associated data. The features and uses of a LIMS have evolved over the years from simple sample tracking to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) tool that manages multiple aspects of laboratory informatics. LIMS and process development execution system (PDES) have all performed similar functions since their evolution. One key to compliance with regulatory concerns standards is audit logging of all changes to LIMS data, and in some cases a full electronic signature system is required for rigorous tracking of field-level changes to LIMS data. Growing practice of genome and DNA study and in-vitro ADME technologies, benefits like low implementation cost, efficient time management, and compliance with GDP, GCP, and GMP, and popularity of cloud-based systems are driving the market growth in recent years. In addition, major market development of key players like Labvantage Solutions is additional factors driving the growth of the market.

Growing number of applications of LIMS in pharmaceutical laboratories, lack of in-house qualified resources and increasing demand for bio banks and bio repositories of LIMS in pharmaceutical laboratories are driving the demand of this segment. This has led to considerable increase in market growth of the segment in recent years. Contract research organizations (CROs) is forecast to grow at the fastest rate with the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025, owing to outsourcing from pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies, and associated advantages such as cost efficiency.

Geography – Segment Analysis
North America dominated the geography segment of Laboratory Information Management System Market with a share of more than 43.61% in 2019, followed by Europe. Favorable policies facilitating laboratory automation adoption such as EHR programs, presence of advanced infrastructure, surging demand for genomic studies, and increasing government funding in research and healthcare are helping in significant market growth in the region. Europe held the second place in the geography segment share of the market. In Europe, rise in the demand for Laboratory Information Management System Industry owing to increased demand about its benefits and the launch of new market players have helped the market.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to grow at the fastest rate at a higher CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025. This is owing to rising demand for increasing number of LIMS providing CROs and development trends of new generation processes.

Drivers – Laboratory Information Management System Market
Growing practice of genome and DNA study
Biotechnology has grown rapidly through both academic research and private companies. The primary applications of this technology are in medicine (production of vaccines and antibiotics) and agriculture. Moreover, deeper knowledge of human sequence variation has begun to alter the practice of medicine. This is set to give in way for more applications for LIMS. Major Key players are diving investments into these rising innovations. This is set to drive the market growth in the forecast years 2020-2025.

Growing popularity of cloud-based systems
Cloud computing is gaining popularity among mid-size and small business, enabling many businesses to access to application software over high-speed internet connection without the need for investing in computer software and hardware. Deploying LIMS software hosted in the cloud (the Software as a Service model) as well as storing data in the Cloud attracts interest as a perceived low cost option. This is set to help in market growth during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Challenges – Laboratory Information Management System Market
Shortage of skilled professionals
In general, labor demand growth has given rise to skill shortages and associated wage pressures, often amplified by out-migration. However, employment/working age population ratios are relatively low. In contrast to the earlier period of weak labor demand it is now the supply side of the labor market that constrains new job creation. Thus, it is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period 2020-2025.
