Covid illness (COVID19) is a respiratory contaminations irresistible sickness brought about by the Covid 2 (SARSCoV2) that causes extreme intense respiratory condition. Coronavirus, which was for the most part obscure until the flare-up in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, has gone from a provincial issue to a worldwide pandemic very quickly. Coronavirus was proclaimed a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020. Because of the urgency of combating the outbreak, pharma and biotech businesses, researchers, diagnostic labs, and testing facilities working on COVID-19 research have used innovative technologies and solutions that go beyond standard methods to improve processes.

COVID-19 research laboratories and diagnostic labs must handle a number of steps (such as test management, sample handling, inventory control, packaging, and shipment). In addition, research labs working on COVID-19 treatments or vaccinations require a comprehensive end-to-end solution to increase the quality, productivity, and speed of vaccine production. This is anticipated to boost adoption of informatics solutions like LIMS, which improve research and testing as well as data administration.

By Type

There are two types of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) on the market: standalone and integrated. In 2021, the standalone sector had a bigger market share, but the integrated segment is expected to grow at a faster rate throughout the forecast period.

By Deployment Model

On-Premise, Cloud-Based are the three segments of the market. The on-premise segment has the largest market share and is expected to grow at the fastest rate throughout the projected period. The elements that can be attributed include governments' continued efforts to secure sensitive data relating to national security and individual data of citizens, and businesses' concerns about the safety of their own organizational data. These elements are projected to boost the on-premise segment's growth over the coming years. Organizations can lower their operational costs by using the cloud because they don't have to invest in additional computing resources. Segment growth is often fueled by secondary benefits such as cost-effectiveness and increased efficiency.

By Component

Software and services have been separated from the market. In 2021, the services category led the market, accounting for almost 59% of total sales. This is because the demand for LIMS deployment, integration, maintenance, validation, and support has skyrocketed. Also, the expanded interest for LIMS re-appropriating arrangements is projected to drive the market forward. Because large pharmaceutical research labs lack the necessary resources and capabilities to deploy analytics, these services are outsourced. Short-term, project-based, or long-term outsourcing are all options.

By End User

Life sciences, Contract Research Organizations (CROs), petrochemical refineries and the oil & gas industry, chemical industry, food & beverage & agriculture industries, environmental testing laboratories, and other industries such as forensic, metal & mining laboratories have been divided into the market. In 2021, the life sciences end-use segment accounted for the biggest proportion of global revenue, accounting for more than 40% of total revenue. This is due to the widespread use of LIMS in pharmaceutical labs. Lack of qualified in-house personnel, increased productivity, cost efficiency, and rising need for biobanks and biorepositories are all likely to contribute to the segment's growth.


Some of the major key players are as follows: Autoscribe Informatics, Abbott Laboratories, Illumina, Inc., LabVantage Solutions Inc., Labworks, Siemens, Thermo Fisher Scientific, PerkinElmer Inc., LabWare, LabLynx Inc, and other players.

15 Conclusion


An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
