Clinical Laboratory Services Market Introduction & Overview

Clinical laboratory tests are provided by medical labs that play an integral role in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Clinical laboratory services have significant growth opportunities considering the range and complexity of tests and services that they provide. The variety and sophistication of accessible testing and resources have expanded exponentially and are expected to continue. Laboratory technology often takes the center stage in medical advancements. New tests and advancements in equipment and testing techniques are making laboratory tests more efficient and automated. The high accuracy of such automated tests further helps to avoid the chances of human errors. These innovations help physicians to understand the health conditions of patients better and provide treatment accordingly. These are a few of the factors that will boost the market growth of clinical laboratory services globally. Moreover, Information Technology (IT) has revolutionized data transfers by reducing the time spent in requesting and collecting test results and creating opportunities to analyze large datasets containing test results.

The global clinical laboratory services market is driven by factors, such as increasing geriatric population, government initiatives to raise awareness regarding preventive screening and an increasing number of clinical diagnostic centers & hospitals. Moreover, public & private funding for clinical laboratory test research and the implementation of genome-based laboratory tests are driving the clinical laboratory services market. However, the lack of skilled professionals and pricing pressures faced by healthcare payers are restraining the market growth of clinical laboratory services to a certain extent. In 2019, Quest Diagnostics and hc1 collaborated to improve patient care by employing machine learning to gain insights that allow optimal laboratory testing.
