Market Report Description

The Global Life Science Analytics Market size is expected to reach $12.5 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 8% CAGR during the forecast period. Life science and healthcare groups can put their data into prompt, significant usage with artificial intelligence (AI) analytics platforms. Life sciences analytics tools allow biopharma companies to keep their data protected while allowing their researchers and scientists to analyze drug outcomes in seconds and therefore clinical trial results can be easily compared with historical genomics data.

Analytics platforms have not up till now reached the level of complete maturity necessary to act as a separate enterprise solution and these are still seen as modest assets within pharmaceutical companies. As the surge in the volume of data delivered through the new biological, clinical process, chemical, epidemiological, economic, and some other channels endures to grow, a novel era of analytics is evolving with more demand for analytics compute services. The analytics service supplier landscape external to the pharmaceutical companies is various and will keep growing till pharma itself catches up with some other industries.
