eClinical Solutions and Software Market Is Projected to Grow at A Robust CAGR Of 11.7% During the Forecast Period 2022-2032

At a CAGR of 11.7% from 2022-2032, the global eClinical solutions and software market size is expected to reach USD 14.5 billion by 2026, up from USD 8.3 billion in 2021.

Some of the major driving factors for the global demand for eClinical solutions and software market include rising operational costs and compliance standards associated with clinical scientific studies, financial assistance to support clinical trials, and extensive R&D spending on drug development by pharma-biotech companies.

One of the important factors driving the eClinical solutions and software market size is biopharma and pharma businesses increasing their research and development operations. Aside from that, the industry is expected to benefit from the increasing use of software solutions in clinical trials.

The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted market adoption, as corporations have been investing in improved healthcare IT systems to aid in the fight against the pandemic.

As the volume of data created during clinical development processes grows, so does the demand for analyzing and managing clinical data. As a result, the use of eClinical solutions in clinical trials is becoming more common.

Furthermore, eClinical technologies improve site performance, increase clinical trial efficiency, and reduce costs by removing redundant data entry. The eClinical solutions and software market is predicted to grow as a result of the aforementioned causes. In addition, the rapid use of eClinical solutions such as RTSM in order to enroll and randomize patients, as well as effective trial medication supply management, is expected to boost eClinical solutions revenue.

During the research lifecycle, eClinical solutions assist researchers in organizing, standardizing, and managing their clinical research data and information. Several integrated eClinical solutions (such as CTMS and CDMS) offer clinical researchers end-to-end solutions for all clinical trial operations. However, these programs are costly and premium-priced.

eClinical systems cost around USD 2 million to install and maintain, with additional expenditure for technical support for cloud-based solutions. Advanced eClinical software systems’ high costs are projected to limit their ideal acceptance among price-sensitive and small-sized end customers, such as pharma-biotech businesses, independent researchers, and CROs.

As per the global market study on eClinical solution software, due to the presence of a large and genetically diverse population, high illness prevalence, and low-cost outsourced services, Asian countries are emerging as significant outsourcing destinations for clinical trials. Clinical trials are contracted to CROs in China and India in large numbers.

The rise in the number of databases shared among research institutions, CROs, collaborators, and software businesses elevates the danger of data leakage. The use of electronic tools for patient databases raises privacy concerns concerning patient records, posing a significant problem for pharmaceutical companies in terms of adhering to privacy policies when utilizing eClinical software solutions.

Key Takeaways
