In the near future, the clinical trials industry is poised to undergo a transformative evolution, marked by unprecedented advancements in technology, streamlined regulatory processes, and a heightened emphasis on patient-centric approaches.

The global clinical trials market is projected to reach USD 73.2 billion by 2028 from USD 48.2 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period of 2023 to 2028. The global clinical trials market is growing owing to factors such as increased R&D spending, increasing outsourcing of R&D operations, and an increase in clinical trials conducted globally. In addition to this, the growing biosimilars and biologics development and launches, increasing demand for specialized testing services, and emerging Asian markets also offer lucrative growth opportunities for players operating in the market. The market growth could be hampered by a lack of qualified professionals to conduct clinical trials in line with the regulatory guidelines.
