The data management tool known as a LIMS helps labs in automating their workflows, tracking data (samples, instruments, and QA/QC results), and storing, processing, and reporting data. All these features are crucial to sustain and improve productivity and efficiency of any biological lab, from pharma, biotech, environmental facilities, F&B to biobanking.

The global Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) market is valued at $1.3 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10% to cross $2 billion by 2025, driven by rising regulatory compliance requirements, technological advancements in LIMS offerings and benefits offered by LIMS to improve lab’s productivity and efficiency.

Shift towards Cloud-based LIMS

Traditional on-premise LIMS face challenges to survive in a data-driven world due to the increased requirement for data sharing across and between organizations. On-premise systems lack scalability and easy integration, are often time-consuming and costly to implement and manage. The LIMS industry is observing rise in the acceptance of cloud-based model as it can address most of these issues with quick deployment, minimum upfront costs, high flexibility and scalability making it affordable for all laboratories.

Trending Subscription-based Pricing Models

Every pricing model has benefits and drawbacks of its own. Larger companies that have sufficient resources and support staff frequently choose to buy a perpetual license. However, smaller companies/start-ups usually opt for cost-effective, pay as you go subscription and SaaS pricing model. Vendors provide both perpetual and subscription licenses for labs choosing to install LIMS on-premise or in the cloud.
