Global Laboratory Information System Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global laboratory information system (LIS) market is estimated to grow to USD 4.39 billion by 2029 from USD 2.88 Billion in 2024 and register a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period.

Laboratory information systems are used to manage various aspects of a medical laboratory. It is a computer system integrated with hardware and software to effectively manage healthcare information in laboratories. For instance, a laboratory information system manages, stores, and processes patient laboratory processes and test data, including all necessary information about the sample, to reduce the risk of contamination, expiration, and loss of samples. LIMS also has the capability of tracking the location of a sample.


The growing need to reduce diagnostic errors and the YOY rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases is increasing the need for the laboratory information system market.

The primary factor driving the growth of the global laboratory information system market is the various advantages LIS offers. Some main benefits include better workload evaluation, faster communication, and reduced administrative burden, including decision support rules for efficiently guiding extension tools, workflow, data extraction capabilities, point-of-care testing support, and auditing capabilities. In addition, the scalability and flexibility of LIS facilitate an advanced level of configurability, helping the labs improve efficiency and integration, reduce errors, and provide improved information to the doctor regarding adapted reference values, comments, interpretation, faster billing, and improved collection operations. The rise in the adoption rate of laboratory information systems due to the beneficial features of these systems, such as integrating electronic records with the LIS, accurate subtyping of diseases, and better efficiency of clinical workflows, are significantly contributing to the growth of the laboratory information system market. In addition, increasing demand for innovative and advanced technologies led to rising R&D activities in genomics and precision medicine; these factors catalyze the growth of the global laboratory information system market.

The growing adoption of the laboratory information system market is further promoting the market’s growth rate.

The LIS market is also highly driven because of its installation in many areas such as student health centers, hospitals, provider groups and clinics, universities, pathology laboratories, public health, independent reference laboratories, veterinary laboratories, toxicology clinics, etc. since today's healthcare environment requires committed vendor support to manage the complexity and regulatory nature of lab testing. Additionally, LIS helps improve laboratory workflow efficiency, where lab technicians need not be concerned about oversights. Also, the technological advances in recent years have resulted in an increased demand for laboratory data to meet microbiological, clinical, and public health needs by the growing population, as a result of growing awareness for better, cost-effective, and efficient lab testing, along with their disease treatment, which not only guarantees maximum reimbursement but also facilitates decision-making to increase laboratory productivity since the system offers a wide frequency of security measures for ensuring the safety of sensitive data stored in the systems. Therefore, the emergence of novel and innovative laboratory information systems offering enhanced customer services and support is supposed to create lucrative growth opportunities for key market players in this industry during the forecast period. In addition, increasing demand for laboratory information systems in clinical research in countries like India, China, Brazil, Singapore, Malaysia, and Middle Eastern countries boosts the LIS market further. Furthermore, consistently increasing demand for personalized medicine will likely boost the laboratory information system market to climb new growth heights.


High costs associated with the service and maintenance of laboratory information systems pose a significant challenge to the stakeholders in the market, resulting in restraining the growth of the global laboratory information system market. In addition, budget constraints in small and medium-scale laboratories limit the adoption rate of technologically advanced systems, limiting the growth of the laboratory information system market. The lack of stringent regulations and standards is another significant opportunity for the key players in economically emerging countries and is assumed to expand during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Laboratory Information System Market

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has led to the striking loss of human lives. Moreover, it presents an abnormal public health challenge. The adoption of the cloud-based LIS segment has seen a spike during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, vendors are surging, capitalizing on developing LIS software for various healthcare verticals. For instance, LabWare Technologies collaborated with the National Health Service to provide laboratory management software to healthcare settings across the United Kingdom. The pandemic crisis is imposing a measurable impact on the laboratory information systems market. Prominent adoption has been observed since the ongoing COVID-19 impact, permitting healthcare providers to center on drug and vaccine development by smoothening data collection procedures. Clinical laboratories find it challenging to manage the quick inflow of COVID-19 testing samples, influencing their capability to offer proper testing. The key players in the LIS market collaborate with the government and other private sectors to engage developed technologies for executing COVID-19 testing potentialities. As a result, hospital-grade laboratory information systems are gaining momentum. The flourishing demand for continuous lab testing during the pandemic crisis led to the surging capacity in most clinical laboratories.
