Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) Market : Snapshot

The global clinical trial management system market is mainly driven by the heightened occurrences of chronic diseases among people. The rise in the outsourcing of clinical trials is another reason, why this market is expected to flourish in the coming years. Moreover, favorable government initiatives are also anticipated to aid the growth of the global clinical trial management system market. In addition to this, the increasing cost of research and development activities and various improvements in the regulatory framework for patent laws and drug approvals shall help in driving the clinical trial management system market's growth in the future. Developing nations such as China and India are expected to increase the size of their clinical trial management system. Quality trials at low cost is required for regional industry growth.

Some of the challenging factors within the global clinical trial management system market include, long waiting period for approval and difficulty in recruitment for clinical trials. The various stringent regulatory guidelines to be followed so as to ensure drug safety and efficacy will also act as a restraining factor for the growth of the global clinical trial management system market. An increasing number of clinical trials are failing at phase II and phase III. This is also a challenging factor for the market. However, the demand for

clinical trial management systems will witness an increase as a lot of effort is required for the management of clinal trials as well as the data generated post these clinical trials and the use of these systems help with the management of information.

Global Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) Market: Overview 

A clinical trial management system (CTMS) is a software system that is used to maintain and manage trials in clinical research activities. The system manages planning and executing and reporting functions, along with contact information of participant. In addition, it is useful in tracking deadlines and milestones of trials. CTMSs are used primarily used in pharmaceutical and biotech organizations, medical devices industry, and clinical research companies. 

Global Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS) Market: Key Trends 

The increasing research and development activities in the field of life science and clinical research is the foremost factor driving the demand for CTMS. The growing investments from public and private sectors and the introduction of conducive government policies are paving way for increased number of clinical trials, which turn is providing a fillip to the market. However, the dearth of skilled professionals is hampering the growth of the market.
