Clinical trials are research investigations in which people volunteer to innovate new treatments and tests to prevent, detect, treat or manage various diseases and medical conditions. During a trial, enhanced information is gained about an experimental treatment, its risks, and its effectiveness. To manage such data, clinical trial management system is considered to be the most effective and efficient option. The trial preparation, subject identification & enrollment, collection, monitoring & processing of data, maintaining& managing plans, reporting and pharmacovigilance are some major processes conducted in the hospitals and clinical research agencies.
Rising number of clinical trials, and growing R&D expenditure of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies are some of the key factors driving the clinical trial management market. Additionally, favorable government initiatives supporting the use of clinical trial management system are also stimulating the market growth. However, lack of skilled professionals to operate advanced CTMS and high cost are the major restraints to the market growth. On the other hand, increasing research activities and growing complexity in data management within multiple pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, are expected to present profitable opportunities to the clinical trial management system market.
