Published Date : Jul 2021 | No. of Pages : 150+ Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global central lab market value reached at US$ 2.5 Bn in 2020 and predicted to surpass over US$ 4 billion by 2030, expanding at a noteworthy CAGR of 6.1% from 2021 to 2030.

Central labs are designed to provide services for supporting clinical trials for upcoming drugs, genetic testing services for various genetic diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, sickle cell anemia, and microbiology testing services such as testing the kinetics and growth of different microbes. Increase in number of diseases, advancements in new therapies & drugs, and large number of research grants, proposals, and funding to develop new testing procedures by governments are factors that drive global central lab market. However, central lab logistics problems such as fluctuation in temperature of samples, stability problems such as purity, contamination, and stringent & complex government regulations are projected to hamper the growth of the global central lab market.

Rise in Prevalence of Diseases to Drive Global Market

Percentage rise in the number of patients suffering from cancer and circulatory diseases and increase in incidence of these diseases are the major factors boosting the growth of the global central lab market. According to the WHO, cancer, heart disease, and other chronic conditions account for over 24 million deaths in the world. The number of cancer cases is expected to, at least, double in most countries over the next 25 years. This contributes to the growth of the global central lab market. Moreover, trials carried out in traditional labs lacked standard operating procedures (SOPs), analysis methods and proper report formats, and high error rate gave rise to central labs. These labs train the site staff for proper collection, packaging, and labelling requirements, thereby reducing human errors, which can lead to miss identification and reporting of samples. Additionally, a large number of research grants and funding fuels the growth of the global market.

Laboratories Work with Logistics Partners to Maintain Business Continuity During COVID-19 Crisis

Companies in the central lab market have been under scrutiny for minimizing potential disruptions to logistical movements of human samples and potential supply issues for clinical kits during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Additional Training of Non-physician Medical Specialists Accelerates Lab Procedure Outcomes

The central lab market is estimated to surpass US$ 4 Bn by 2030. However, central lab stakeholders are posed with many challenges, such as time consuming processes, since several sites samples need to reach one lab and may take several days. Hence, central labs are now sharing this responsibility with local lab facilities whilst increasing R&D to adopt processes that accelerate their lab procedures.

On the other hand, the German healthcare system in the central lab market poses issue in invoicing medical services to non-physician medical specialists in hospitals due to the scarcity of medical professionals. Hence, the German Society for Laboratory Medicine (DGKL) is increasing efforts to provide additional training in a master program in laboratory medicine aimed at medical professionals to facilitate invoicing for lab services in hospitals.

Companies Deploy AI, Automation, Blockchain Technologies to Support Central Labs

A plethora of technological and software innovations are storming the central lab market. Q2 Solutions-a global clinical trial laboratory services organization is supporting central labs with innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI) protocol reading, sample & consent tracking, and next-gen flow cytometry result reporting automation, among others.
