The global Clinical Trials Software market size was accounted at USD 4.13 Bn in 2021; It is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 37% from 2022 to 2030. Recently pharmaceutical companies started using clinical trial management services to improve the accuracy and efficiency of clinical trials. A clinical trial is a procedure that studies new treatments and drugs to check their effects on human health.
The rising use of clinical trial management services, fast adoption of cloud-based solutions, increased healthcare expenditure, high prevalence of chronic & infectious diseases, growing government investments for clinical trial services and research are projected to augument the market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising innovations of clinical trials software drive the market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Bioclinica (US) introduced the new source document management solution that combines advanced software with redaction and translation services to offer support to global research sites and trial management teams.
However, the expensive clinical trials software and limited knowledge on advanced technologies among healthcare professionals may restrict the market growth during the estimated timeframe.
The clinical trials software market is segmented into the type of deployment, type of delivery, features of software, end-users, and region. The type of deployment segment comprises on-cloud and on-premises. The on-cloud segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to the surging use of cloud-based software for clinical trials. The market is classified into web-based and remote monitoring based on the type of delivery. The web-based delivery type is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of this market. It reduces R&D costs and offers cost-effective, easy accessibility to web-based clinical trial solutions. The market is grouped into EDC, eCOA/ePRO, and eConsent by features of software. The market is segmented into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, contract research organizations (CROs), medical device manufacturers, and others by end-users. The pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies will lead this market in the coming years due to the high demand for automated clinical trial management services. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.
North America has dominated the clinical trials software market in 2020 and will continue its trend over the forecast period. Additionally, the Asia-Pacific market is likely to witness rapid growth in the next few years due to the growing pharmaceutical companies, increasing clinical trial studies, and high demand for web-based and cloud-based solutions for clinical trial processes.
