Latin America LIS Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the Latin America Laboratory Information System Market was valued at USD 0.14 Billion in 2022. It is further forecasted to be worth USD 0.22 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 8.9% from 2022 to 2027.

A laboratory information system (LIS) is software that manages the laboratory activities regarding the data for clinical laboratories.

The laboratory information management systems market in Latin America is growing due to the increased demand for simplified data with minimal errors and can be transported digitally across regions. Many clinical trials information can now be collected and stored through LIS for both physicians and patients. Recent research indicates that 45% of hospitals in Latin America employed EMR systems in 2018, compared to 38% in 2017. It was also reported that the Latin American EMR market is predicted to grow at a rate of 7.55% in the upcoming years, owing to the great need for digitalization in the healthcare sector. Factors like the growing number of tests and various new and old diseases require ample storage and management software for smooth and proper functioning. Growing concerns about any traffic or faulty issues in the system lead to more patients growing concerned about their health and treatment options. Many IT companies and biologics corporates are popularizing Laboratory information management systems to map out the disease in different age groups for better treatment options. This will help the government from being overburdened by any illness and support patient education.

With the growing demand for precision medication and customized healthcare plans, the healthcare departments in Latin America are adopting the Laboratory information system to increase their share in the global market during the forecast period.

The high maintenance and service costs associated with LIS ought to be a major restraint to market growth. The maintenance cost for IT solutions is more than the actual price of the software. Moreover, the lack of skilled professionals and high-tech equipment for this LIS is anticipated to impact market growth during the forecast period negatively.
