The clinical reference laboratories market has been evaluated as a progressively evolving market and is likely to retain its position in the foreseeable future. The adoption of value-based services has gained traction as hospitals have started outsourcing radiology and pathology diagnostic services. With hospital budgets becoming constrained due to declining medical reimbursements, hospitals are outsourcing their pathology and diagnostic services. The rising value-based outsourcing from hospitals has encouraged the market for independent reference laboratory services.


Increased use of robotics technology in reference laboratories to increase productivity, reduce lab process cycle times, and elevate data quality are some of the major factors likely to contribute to the market growth across the globe. Moreover, the application of laboratory automation technology will help to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of testing and diagnostic process. Laboratories will also be able to perform critical activities like combination chemistry, screening, large-scale biorepositories, and automated clinical and analytical testing. Such factors are likely to influence the market across the globe. The soaring focus on early detection and prevention of diseases, revolution of personalized medicines, and innovation of genetic and molecular technologies are some of the factors likely to dictate the growth trajectory of the market. Increased number of FDA approvals for diagnostic procedures will further lead to vendors emphasizing on the launch of cost-effective, new, and time-saving diagnostic procedures in order to increase the market shares.
