DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Clinical Trial Management Systems Market” report has been added to’s offering.

The global market for clinical trial management systems was valued at $920.8 million in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.2%, to reach $1.6 billion by 2026. The global market is mainly driven by the increasing adoption of CTMSs in clinical trials and the rise of research and development (R&D) expenses of CRO. The fast spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 is also seen as another primary driver in the need for CTMS platforms.

The need to adopt patient-centric clinical trials has never been more acute for global pharmaceutical organizations. One of the greatest learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic was the tremendous potential held by digital technologies to enable remote and personalized clinical trials, also referred to as “decentralized” trials, to achieve trial continuity and operational efficiencies. With the advancement in technology, proactive guidance from regulators and a surge in wearable and devices, the adoption of decentralized trials has slowly become a must-have rather than a good-to-have initiative.

With the use of CTMS healthcare systems, professionals can easily access centralized data, thereby reducing the number of delayed trials. It can also handle site recruitment and identification while simultaneously providing control and tracking over subjects’ databases and subject enrolment.
