Dublin, April 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Virtual Clinical Trial Service Providers Market by Type of Therapeutic Area, End-Users, Phase of Development (Phase I, Phase II, Phase III and Phase IV), and Key Geographies: Industry Trends and Global Forecasts, 2020-2050" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Owing to its highly cost and time intensive nature, the development of a novel molecular entity is a complex and sophisticated process. In fact, it is estimated that before receiving regulatory approval, a prescription drug requires more than 10 years and close to USD 3 billion in capital investment. Additionally, close to 40% of the pharmaceutical industry's R&D budget in the US is spent on conducting clinical trials assessing the efficacy of novel treatments. With rising geographical diversity in clinical trials, the trial complexity is increasing rapidly in this domain making it difficult for trial coordinators to identify sub-optimal trial sites. It is worth highlighting that, the clinical research process is known to be prone to delays, and often faces several other challenges, including (but not limited to) inefficient data handling, risk of failure and incomplete patient recruitment, which can be validated from the fact that only 10% of drug candidates under clinical development receive regulatory approval.
The lack of patient centricity in traditional clinical trials inhibit trial sponsors to retain enough patients, which is critical to successfully conduct clinical research on predetermined completion dates. The lack of participant compliance in clinical trials often leads to massive delays which are known to impose enormous financial burden on sponsors, amounting close to USD 8 million, per day, blockbuster drugs. Another noticeable concern in this domain, is the inefficient handling of clinical data, which is primarily due to insignificant use of electronic health records. Estimates indicate that, the pharmaceutical industry incurs losses of USD 6 billion each year due to such avoidable data-related concerns. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nearly all aspects of clinical operations being conducted across the world.
Over the years, the pharmaceutical industry has leveraged technological advances to address several of the aforementioned clinical trial-related constraints / challenges. In fact, the clinical research segment has recently witnessed participation of several vendors, offering a wide range of services and solutions for conducting and managing various aspects of trials. Virtual clinical trials have demonstrated the potential to disrupt the conventional ways of conducting trials, allowing sponsors to establish a more patient centric approach to drug development. Virtual clinical trial technologies augment clinical research by implementation of advanced technological solutions, including (but not limited to) software applications, e-monitoring devices and social engagement platforms. Such solutions hold the potential to save up to 25% of capital invested in clinical trials, by enabling efficient patient recruitment, reduction in patient attrition rate and robust data analysis. It is worth noting that, virtual trials related initiatives have also received significant funding from both private and public investors. With digital solutions witnessing increased adoption in the drug development process, we are led to believe that the virtual clinical trials market is likely to grow significantly in the coming years.
