This is likely to increase the adoption of laboratory informatics solutions, which drive research and testing activities and extend laboratory operations along with efficient data management. High demand for COVID-19 testing expanded laboratory operations. LIMS plays an essential role in labs to accelerate the high demand for COVID-19 tests, which led to the implementation of the product. Matrix Covid LIMS is set up for fast deployment into laboratories conducting COVID-19 testing. Numerous clinical diagnostic laboratories have already deployed this system to boost productivity and aid in detecting COVID-19-positive cases.

Global Laboratory Informatics Market Drivers:

Technical advancements and Increasing errors in laboratory procedures are majorly accelerating the growth of the laboratory informatics market. The adoption of various advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (Al), augmented reality, and virtual reality, is growing rapidly. These advanced technologies for better monitoring systems and more efficient and convenient scanning equipment allow patients to spend less time in hospitals. 

Laboratory automation is an essential approach to minimizing manual interference in laboratory processes. Automation is also an advanced technology that improves productivity and allows researchers to focus on core work, thereby reducing error rates and enhancing the accuracy of results. Automation in surgeries has resulted from using technology in medical equipment and telehealth since, in some cases, doctors do not even need to be in the operating room with a patient when the procedure is performed. Automation provides high-quality data and makes efficient and precise documentation. Stringent regulations are imposed on the automation of laboratory procedures to ensure optimum efficiency with error-free results, further driving laboratory informatics market growth.  The growing use of digital workstations, automated analyzers, and total laboratory automation (TLA) makes it easy to transfer tasks among laboratory workers and improve productivity. The demand for efficient ways to process, evaluate, and communicate data is rising because laboratory systems are generating more data, further propelling the market's expansion.

The increasing need for laboratory automation, the growing need for patient engagement solutions, and the growing accessibility of cost-effective informatics solutions are further anticipated to fuel the growth rate of the global laboratory automation market. Rising technological advancements in molecular genomics and genetic testing practices, an increasing amount of data generated by laboratories, growing popularity in biobanks, academic research institutes, increasing adoption of biorepositories and biobanks and many research institutes, the growing demand in biobanks, and increasing R&D expenditure in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected to provide favorable support to the growth rate of the market. In addition, the growing demand for supervisory authorities to implement lab automation systems and the increasing adoption of process automation and robotics in healthcare helps render operations repeatable and reproducible. These are among the significant opportunities in the global laboratory informatics market.

Global Laboratory Informatics Market Restraints:

The high maintenance and service costs of laboratory informatics solutions are factors restraining the growth of the laboratory informatics market. In addition, the shortage of skilled professionals and lack of standards for integrating laboratory informatics solutions challenge the market growth.
