Clinical Laboratory Services Market Size Hit US$ 330 Billion by 2026

According to Acumen Research and Consulting, the global Clinical Laboratory Services Market size is estimated to grow at CAGR above 6 % over the forecast time frame and reach the market value around USD 330 billion. Improved database management tools, integrated workflow management systems and broad acceptance of POC solutions are some of the main market driving factors.

The market growth is also expected to spur unsatisfactory medical needs for disease management, together with subsequent increase in patient awareness. Furthermore, there will be a positive market growth impact on the presence of an effective regulatory structure to monitor laboratory operations. In order to meet standards and guidelines set by CLIA, clinical laboratories are enforced. The clinical workflows are thus safely and effectively implemented to improve patient outcomes and thereby drive demand for clinical laboratory services. Market participants have adopted various strategies to strengthen their position in the industry.

As a result, for example, Quest Diagnostics acquired the Boyce and Bynum Pathology Laboratories (BBPL) clinical laboratory services segment in February 2019. BBPL should be an exclusive pathology product provider for Quest Diagnostics through this acquisition. RenalytixAI also partnered with AKESOgen in February 2019 to provide clinical laboratory service. They both supply under the name of RENX AI Labs, LLC. RenalytixAI aims to expand its contract and clinical Diagnosis business segment with this partnership.
