Geographically, the LIS market is subdivided into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.
North America LIS market is expected to hold a dominating position due to the adoption of cloud computing and increasing demand for lowering cost for customized healthcare services in the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act dictates that U.S. healthcare industry has to start adopting electronic medical records so as to efficiently and securely share data with other healthcare providers and government agencies. As a result, cloud-based LIS are expected to be more widely adopted and enable laboratories to share real-time information. Due to increased expenditure on healthcare and enhanced healthcare infrastructure in North America and Western Europe, LIS market is expected to expand in these regions over the coming years.
Increasing adoption of new technologies, patient awareness and rising rate of disease incidence would help to augment LIS market growth in Europe. Rising demand for integrated healthcare systems and a market ripe for enhanced healthcare facilities would drive LIS market in the region.
Asia and Latin America LIS market are expected to witness fast paced growth due to increasing incidences of diseases, government initiatives for enhancement of healthcare infrastructure and rising investments from healthcare IT players. Due to the presence of emerging economies in the regions and expanding expenditure in healthcare services, many international LIS firms have shown increased interest in these regions thus raising the potential of LIS market expansion in the regions.
