Virtual Clinical Trials Market Trends



  • The convenience provided as compared to traditional method to boost the market growth


The creation of therapeutic treatment can take up to 15 years, and phase 1 testing results in failure for 85% of experimental drugs, compared to phase 3 research where approval rates are 50%. Furthermore, it is straightforward to conduct virtual clinical trials without participant involvement for conditions like dermatological diseases that require telemedicine follow-up. Additionally, there are several benefits to adopting digital technologies in virtual clinical trials as opposed to traditional methods, such as the capacity to keep track of patient information, use big data to find new participants, and communicate unfavorable results immediately traditional method.


Geographic proximity is another persistent issue that can be removed by using virtual trials. For instance, people from various countries could be enlisted for observational research that tracked participants' actions after ingesting an antiviral medication. Volunteers can offer a digital signature as part of the informed consent process, saving the researchers money. Digital solutions reduce wait times when a test diagnostic is necessary by setting up appointments. Continual monitoring of participants' vital signs and ongoing patient communication are also practices.


According to the estimate of the market for virtual clinical trials, the interventional category is expected to dominate the market in the next years, as shown in the graph below. The industry is being propelled by the rapid rise in experiments to create novel medications for various ailments as well as laboratory digitalization. According to data from ClinicalTrials.gov, 331,906 (or 77%) of the 429,205 clinical trials were interventional studies. The same data showed that 853 trails were documented due to better access, whereas observational studies made up 95,613 (22% of total research).
