Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) Market: Academic End User Segment Projected to Increase at the Highest Growth Rate: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026

Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) Market: Academic End User Segment Projected to Increase at the Highest Growth Rate: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026

Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) is a software solution developed as a substitute to conventional paper lab notebooks. Electronic lab notebook software encourages digitalization of laboratory data, offering benefits such as making data search easier, enabling efficient organization of data, collaboration, protection and centralization of data, among others. It also enables scientists and researchers to search, access, as well as share results of their experiments. In addition, it is essential for an ELN software to adhere to regulations such as FDA 21 CFR 11, and others according to each region, to assure effective security of data. Electronic laboratory notebooks are rapidly gaining popularity and replacing paper notebooks in laboratory practices in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, academics, food & beverages, consumer goods and others.

Revenue generated by global electronic lab notebook market is estimated to reach US$ 235.4 Mn by 2016, witnessing an increase of 6.3% over 2015. FMI forecasts the global electronic lab notebook (ELN) market to grow at 10.1% CAGR during the forecast period 2016-2026, and is forecasted to hold a market value of US$ 615.2 Mn by 2026.

Adoption of Electronic Lab Notebook in life sciences industry and academics is significantly boosting the market

Growing need for efficient laboratory data management, benefits over conventional lab notebooks, and adoption of ELN in life sciences industry are some of the factors that will drive the demand for global electronic lab notebook (ELN) market. Furthermore, academics is an emerging sector for application of ELN, and is anticipated to account significantly for growth of the global electronic lab notebook (ELN) market over the forecast period.

Besides the cost incurred to purchase electronic lab notebook software, various other factors such as configuration fee, training fee and yearly maintenance fee among others add to the overall cost of adoption of electronic lab note book solution. Working on an ELN requires specific skills and techniques, thus making training an essential requirement. On the other hand, regular maintenance of IT infrastructure, as well as updating of software is essential for efficient and smooth functioning of ELN solution. As a result, users are left with no option but to incur the additional costs.
