The World Market for Laboratory Information Systems

World Market for Laboratory Information Systems

World Market for Laboratory Information Systems examines the current and potential world opportunity for health care laboratory information system software and hardware – both for use in the clinical diagnostics lab and the drug discovery and research laboratory, including next generation sequencing (NGS) labs for LIMS. Coverage includes: key facts about clinical diagnostic laboratories; growth in clinical laboratories, 1997-2014 and estimated 2015; global revenues for clinical lab information systems, 2015-2020; global revenues for drug discovery lab information management systems, 2015-2020; global revenues for lab information management systems in NGS, 2015-2020; major pharmaceutical manufacturers, number of potential lab sites for LIMS, 2015 (US, Europe, Asia, South America, India); laboratory information systems, selected vendors, total number of sites operating LIS/number outside US, 2014; CLIA registered laboratories by type of facility, July 2015; leading US independent laboratory groups, 2015; growth in US independent laboratory facilities, 2015; growth in US hospital laboratory locations, 2015; US clinical laboratory clients and payers by type (%) (Medicare and Medicaid, private patient, commercial insurance, managed care); laboratory information systems, selected vendors with hospital contracts, number of contracts, 2014; selected LIMS NGS vendors; laboratory information systems, selected vendors, interface capabilities, 2014; recent key vendor mergers and acquisitions; and selected pure play and integrated LIS and LIMS vendors.

This market review examines LIS revenue growth in the clinical lab area, the drug discovery laboratory, and NGS laboratories by geographic segment, including: global revenues, 2015-2020 (US/NA, Europe, China, Brazil, Japan, ROW) and the US/North American, European, Chinese, Brazilian, Japanese, and rest of world marketplaces by percentage, 2015-2020. The report also reviews the nature and direction of research and trends, and gives insight into some issues facing the industry. Further, large manufacturers that have made names for themselves in the field, as well as smaller firms with market niches – including AAC Infotray AG, Abbott Informatics, Accelerated Technology Laboratories, Cerner, LabVantage Solutions, LabWare, McKesson, and Swisslab – are highlighted.
