Latin America Clinical Laboratory Services Market summary

There is a significant increase in the complexities and volume of data in clinical trials. The healthcare sector globally is pushing towards a significant shift to increase inflow of new clinical trials, which are based on structured, standardized, and consumer interest. In the region, clinical research is given a prime importance as to find advanced solutions for the rising prevalence of chronic and targeted diseases. The clinical labs are constantly upgraded with innovative technique and converting into automation besides following the international standards. These automated solutions enable speedy process of sample testing, which result in reducing human errors and labor costs by integration of electronic, mechanical, and informatics tools.

Growing adoption rates of laboratory automation systems in clinical settings across the globe is creating lucrative opportunities for the market growth. Further, increasing adoption of database management tools, integrated workflow management systems, and patient test records are gaining significant traction in the healthcare industry. On average, companies are providing laboratory services that ensure processing of around 100 to 150 billion samples every year. However, sample creation and successful experimentation has been a key challenge in clinical testing labs and several market players are continuously focusing to address this issue. For instance, vendors are focusing on adoption of 384-well plates instead of 96-well plates, to cut reagent costs and time taken for performing assays. The 384-well plates cut cost and time by half as compared to the 96-well plates.

Market Drivers, Restraints, Trends, and Opportunities

  • Rapid advance in data management and sample preparation owing to growing volumes of testing samples is projected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Growing investments by key players in the market of Latin America and rising development of clinical laboratories to expand medical research and drug discovery are expected to boost the revenue generation during the forecast period.
  • Growing adoption of laboratory automation systems as well as improvement of informatics and automated data management solutions in clinical labs to help perform seamless operations are expected to drive the market growth.
  • Complexity in the sample preparation and lack of skilled technicians handling the testing procedures through experimental protocols with productivity enhancement are posing key challenges that can impede the regional market growth.
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the market growth. The diagnostic virology of this region has been under immense pressure to provide reliable testing kits for the possible Sars-Cov-2 infection to stop the virus spread.

Latin America Clinical Laboratory Services Market Segment Insights

Clinical Chemistry segment is projected to represent a considerable market share

On the basis of test types, the Latin America clinical laboratory services market is bifurcated into human & tumor genetics, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology & cytology and other esoteric tests. The clinical chemistry segment is projected to represent a considerable market share during the forecast period. The presence of a large number of body fluid-based screening solutions is projected to spur the segment growth. They consist of urinalysis, sweat chloride, semen analysis, fetal fibronectin (fFN), synovial fluid analysis, and amniotic fluid analysis. For example, Alere’s Oral Fluid Testing Services is used to test substances of abuse.

Additionally, clinical chemistry services offer extensive range of specialties such as liver function and renal function tests coupled with resolution of various physiological substances including cardiac markers, minerals, hormones, proteins, hemoglobin, vitamins, and electrolytes. Recent advancements in the fluid-based cancer tests include liquid-based Pap test for cancer screening. Companies such as BD Biosciences are providing a path for liquid-based pap tests, thereby driving the segment growth.

Clinical-based segment is anticipated to constitute a large market share

Based on services types, the market is segmented into hospital-based, standalone, and clinic-based. The clinical-based segment is anticipated to constitute a large market share during the forecast period owing to rising consolidation of clinical-based laboratories with physicians’ offices and other professional units. Moreover, the availability of specialized and easy accessibility of the clinical-based units are pushing to the segment growth. On the other hand, the hospital-based segment is projected to exhibit a healthy CAGR during the forecast period since these laboratories are able to provide accurate data on diagnostics and treatment procedures, which help the physicians in effective decision making.
