Electronic Data Capture Market Size to Grow at a CAGR of 11.9% During the Forecast Period 2021-2026
"Increasing Scrutiny From Regulatory Bodies to Meet the Complex Regulatory Requirements of Clinical Trials Across the World Is Driving the Market Growth of Electronic Data Capture Market."

Electronic Data Capture (EDC) Market size in 2020 is estimated to be $361 million, growing at a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period 2021-2026. The Electronic Data Capture Market system (EDC) is a computerized system designed to collect clinical data in electronic format and is primarily used in human clinical trials. EDC replaces the traditional paper-based data collection methodology to streamline data collection and speed up the time to market for drugs and medical devices. However, EDC software stores patient data collected in clinical trials. Moreover, Data is usually first recorded on paper and then transcribed to the system and stored in an electronic case report form (eCRF). Increasing outsourcing by pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies and demand from EDC services are contributing to enhancing the overall market demand for Electronic Data Capture Market during the aforesaid period.

Electronic Data Capture Market Segment Analysis- By Delivery mode

Based on the Delivery Mode, Electronic Data Capture Market is segmented into Web-Based, Cloud-Based. The Web-Based segment is estimated to dominate the market during the period 2021-2026. This is attributed to High data maintenance costs involved in clinical trials, which have increased dramatically. These high costs are expected to contribute to the high reluctance of pharmaceutical companies. The Cloud-Based segment is forecast to be the fastest-growing segment and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% during the period 2021-2026. This is mainly owing to the increasing efficiency in a wide range of applications, such as trial design, data collection processes, and monitoring and reporting generation.
