The clinical trials market is expanding, driven by increased drug development activities and advancements in trial design and technology.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Sept. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transparency Market Research Inc. - The clinical trials market was estimated to have acquired US$ 46.7 billion in 2019. It is anticipated to register a 5.4% CAGR from 2020 to 2030 and by 2030; the market is likely to gain US$ 83.5 billion.

Decentralized clinical trials, often conducted remotely, are a game-changer. Leveraging digital health technologies, wearables, and telehealth, DCTs reduce the need for physical site visits, making participation more convenient for patients. This trend not only enhances patient recruitment but also collects real-world data more efficiently, promising faster trial completion.

There's an increasing emphasis on patient-centric trials that prioritize the patient experience. This approach involves incorporating patient feedback and preferences into study design, easing the burden of participation. By enhancing patient engagement, these trials are more likely to attract and retain participants, ultimately improving data quality and trial outcomes.

RWE is gaining prominence in clinical research. It involves using data from everyday clinical practice, such as electronic health records and patient registries, to inform decision-making throughout a drug's lifecycle. The integration of RWE in clinical trials can optimize study designs, patient recruitment, and post-market surveillance, creating opportunities for more efficient and cost-effective drug development.

The merging of clinical trials with digital therapeutics is a relatively unexplored avenue. Digital therapeutics, such as smartphone apps and wearables, can enhance patient monitoring, data collection, and intervention delivery. Integrating these technologies into trials can lead to more personalized and effective treatments.

AI-driven technologies are revolutionizing clinical trial design, patient stratification, and data analysis. Machine learning algorithms can identify potential trial candidates, predict patient responses, and optimize trial protocols, reducing costs and accelerating drug development.
