Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) Market - Key Research Findings

  1. By 2030, laboratory information systems market size will reach US$ 4.2 Bn
  2. The laboratory information systems market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period of 2020-2030.
  3. The services segment is expected to remain as the most preferred component segment in the laboratory information systems market.
    • The growth of this particular segment can be primarily attributed to growing interest and acceptance of cloud-based laboratory information system integration that handles patient-related data effectively.
  4. North America is projected to account for 50% share of the global laboratory information systems market by the end of 2030.
    • The North America market is estimated to continue to be the opportunistic market for laboratory information system providers, as the market is growing and techniques are increasingly being used in hospitals for providing quality care, which has resulted in increased demand for laboratory information systems as they facilitate systematic documentation, eliminating paper work and chances of errors.
  5. Clinics will continue to be prominent end users in creating significant growth opportunities for LIS market players.
    • Increasing access to advanced healthcare in developed clinics is a major factor continually raising the demand for laboratory information systems. The primary reasons are: better cost management structure, lean structure with respect to manpower employment, need to automate clinical testing for faster generation of results, and lesser chances of disruption between management regarding implementation of software, as these clinics are mostly solely owned.

Key Factors Shaping Laboratory Information Systems Market

Increased Demand for Integrated Medical Systems in Europe

The European region has been marking a shift from independent healthcare units to an integrated healthcare system. This system is strongly observant in the U.K., Spain, and Germany. Under the restricted healthcare budgets in these nations, there is increased demand for automation and reduction in manpower, thus, driving the adoption of laboratory information systems in the region.

Another factor for higher awareness among patients is the continued push for improved patient care by governments across all major European countries. Thus, with increased pressure to reduce medical errors and improve patient safety, driven in part by the general shift towards value-based reimbursement, hospitals are actively seeking support from information technology solutions for clinical decision support, thereby further driving the laboratory information systems market.

Increasing Competition among Hospitals for Providing Quality Care

Increasing competition among healthcare facilities, especially clinics and hospitals, for providing quality care has resulted in rising demand for laboratory information systems, as they facilitate systematic documentation, eliminating paper work and chances of errors associated with clinical tests report writing, thereby enabling a streamlined workflow.

Moreover, laboratory information systems also act as a decision support system for enhancing decision-making in the clinical workflow. This helps improve the quality of healthcare in hospitals and clinics, ultimately increasing the demand for LIS software and services in these facilities.

Impact of COVID-19 on LIS Market

As rapid testing is considered a primary approach to address COVID-19 cases, laboratory administration and management is becoming critical focus areas of the entire healthcare infrastructure. Hospital information systems have become mainstays of rapid growth of the hospitals landscape, and with further technology intervention that continues to fuel the development of adjacent markets as well. Existing clinical laboratories leverage laboratory information systems (LIS) and laboratory information management systems (LIMS) to efficiently handle data and ensure regulatory compliance. As such, laboratories are struggling with the uncertain influx of COVID-19 testing samples, let alone accuracy and reliability. LIS will thus experience exponential demand growth in order to help labs expand their workflow amidst the pandemic.

Laboratory Information Systems Market: Completion Analysis

  • The LIS market is a highly fragmented market space. Approximately more than 50 laboratory information systems market players are present, globally.
  • In high-impact markets such as the U.S. and Europe, there are stringent regulations for the approval of LIS for diagnostic applications. Development of LIS is expected to benefit from the formation of structured risk-based regulatory framework for healthcare IT initiatives. It is expected to facilitate secure exchange of data between clinicians and systems, and thus, protect overall patient safety and secrecy of medical records.
  • Continuous technological advancements are taking place in the healthcare sector to ensure quality care and maintain patient records. Further, increasing consolidation within hospitals and diagnostic laboratories is driving the need for installation of LIS for interoperability across various facilities. Hence, solution providers are focusing towards tailored LIS solutions, thus driving the growth of the LIS market.
    • Some the global key solution providers in the laboratory information systems market are Cerner Corp, McKesson Corporation, Inc., Medical Information Technology, and LabWare
  • Players in the laboratory information systems market are also focussed on emerging markets such as India, China, and Russia, thanks to their significant marketing network of distributors. Moreover, due to strategic partnerships and tie-ups with local sales bodies and presence of international offices in other regions, major players could deliver their service and solution offerings to retain their customer base.

Laboratory Information Systems Market Share by Component

Factors such as low capital expenses (CAPEX) and operational expenses (OPEX), as well as scalability and flexibility, are enabling the wider adoption of cloud-based LIS. Cloud managed services help healthcare companies share and integrate data from various locations, streamlining the process of data gathering. In addition, the model is relatively cost-effective to install and maintain as compared to on-premise LIS. Over the following decade, value creation of cloud-based laboratory information systems would be roughly twice that of on-premise models.

Regional Outlook of LIS Market

North America carves out a significant portion of the global laboratory information systems market size, attributable to the strong foothold of several prominent players in the U.S., and improved reimbursement policies for pathology procedures. The healthcare sector in the U.S. is embracing cloud computing solutions, given the heightening need to lower costs for customized healthcare services. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has influenced the U.S. healthcare sector to employ future-ready solutions that support electronic medical records (EMRs), and share data securely and effectively with governments and peers.

Market to Receive Impetus from Diagnostic & Medical Laboratories

Rising need to manage voluminous chunks of data in diagnostic and medical laboratories - small and large - is translating to the mounting adoption of laboratory information systems. LIS help enhance the accuracy of diagnostic tests, thereby improving the efficiency and productivity of laboratories. As such, diagnostic and medical laboratories are substantially focused on integrating automation with lab procedures. Players in the LIS market must tap this opportunity to spur revenue growth and expand their customer reach.

Services hold leading revenue share

Software to witness increasing adoption

Cloud-based LIS remain highly preferable

Adoption of on-premise LIS to slump

Clinics remain primary end user

Hospitals to generate relevant revenue

How Growth will Unfold

Players in the LIS market continue to invest meaningfully in services, owing to their repetitive requirement indispensable nature. End users of laboratory information systems considerably depend on service providers for training, maintenance, data storage, implementing services, consulting, and regular upgrades of solutions.  FMI underlines that, realization from services would be over US$ 2 Bn towards the end of the predefined timeframe. Moving forward, while services would maintain their positive trajectory, hardware and software components are expected to falter markedly in the near term.
