Virtual Trials and Technology Are Gaining Acceptance among Patients and Sites
The COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged the uptake and support of telemedicine and AI technology for conducting decentralized clinical trials. Older adults are more willing to adopt these newer technologies in their daily lives as it is aiding them to have a comfortable lifestyle. The clinical trial participants have clear data, regular healthcare staff support, and shorter appointments that can be arranged outside working hours. As a result, all stakeholders benefit from improving the experience of the patient, which leads to more adherence to the study protocol. In addition, patient involvement platforms help to maintain high motivation among participants, since 40 percent of patients are estimated to drop out of clinical trials before the end date. The hybrid trials have further disrupted the existing complex supply chain and logistics with the provision of clinical drug products delivered to patient homes i.e. depot-to-site shipments. Thus, embracing mHealth modules such as sensors, and phones by logistic players will drive the market growth
AI and Machine Learning are Evolving with More Data
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is allowing medical data to be collected and computed in previously unimaginable ways. Patients may now share more data upfront, and systems can analyse data almost instantly, thanks to chat bots, decision support systems, and connected biosensors. Machine learning algorithms for text and visual data may be able to diagnose patients more accurately than traditional doctors. Blockchain, the same technology that underpins the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, has the potential to empower people to share and control their personal data.
How has COVID-19 had a significant impact on the Clinical Trial Supply & Logistics Market?
The COVID-19 pandemic has made a positive impact as in many ways it accelerated the interest in and use of decentralized clinical trials (DCT). The clinical trial industry needs patient burden however it gets frequently reduced when choosing a decentralized clinical trial design. Decentralized and hybrid trial models need more adaptable supply chains to handle their many shifting demands than traditional clinical trials need. It is a challenging task to uphold consistency when you are simultaneously serving the needs of sites, patients, decentralized, and sponsors. Excellent performance becomes even more challenging when dealing with the increased variables of decentralized trials.
Setting up a flexible clinical supply chain solution that can manage the challenges of decentralized distribution and making use of a central depot model is crucial to lowering the risk of deliveries being delayed. The most likely supply chain to be able to adjust to disruptions is one that integrates data collection, management, transportation, and home healthcare services. The importance of ensuring trial participants' safety cannot be overstated. Supply chain partners must deliver, distribute, and retrieve clinical trial supplies and sensitive biological materials directly to and from the patient's location, essentially expanding the trial's global reach, in order to establish the benchmark in the clinical supply chain for DTP/DFP services and COVID-19 has just opened new avenues to overcome these logistical challenges.

What are the Current Market Drivers?
Clinical trial supply and logistics are evolving at an increasing rate
Clinical drug supply is now essential to the success of clinical trials because of their growing volume, shortened turnaround times, and complexity. It is possible to avoid the chance that the supply of therapeutic drugs may become a bottleneck for effective drug delivery by raising it to best-in-class levels. However, it can also have significant advantages, such as improved investigator and patient experiences, one to two-year shorter medication launches, and cost reductions of 15% to 20% in clinical drug supply.
Spending on research and development in the pharmaceutical business has accelerated due to the rapid expansion of clinical trials, and accounted to be reach US$ 200 billion as compared to US$137 billion in 2012. A total of 362,500 clinical trials were registered in 2021 and they increased to 399,522 in 2022. Out of the total clinical trials of 2022, approximately 330,122 interventional clinical trials were registered for the same year. Expectations for shorter durations have increased due to the COVID-19 vaccines' quick development, and the pandemic has hastened the transition to decentralised testing. New patient-centric approaches and increasingly sophisticated, global, and adaptable studies are additional complexity requirements for clinical drug delivery propelling demand for well-planned supply chain logistics for clinical trials.
Big Companies Are Driving the Market
Patients can share data immediately through their smartphone with tools like Apple's Research Kit, which is altering the clinical trial landscape. As billions more people acquire smartphones, the number of people who can be recruited climbs dramatically, while the cost of doing so decreases dramatically. Google is also quickly pushing into the field with the Verily Study Watch, where it has initiated project baseline, a four-year longitudinal observation study that will collect, organise, and analyse broad phenotypic health data from about 10,000 individuals.
Where are the Market Opportunities?
Globalization of Clinical Trials
Pharma companies are conducting clinical trials, particularly phase III clinical trials, in various geographies as a result of the globalization of clinical trials, including the fast-growing Eastern Europe, China, Korea, and Taiwan. As a result, there has been an increase in the planning and sourcing of ancillary materials. Clinical research has recently become more globalized, with many of these studies being conducted on a global scale and a significant increase in clinical trials in developing countries thereby demanding a need for robust supply chain management for clinical trials.
Clinical Supply Chain Optimization Will Be a High Growth Market in Coming Years
Digital innovation in clinical trials and a renewed focus on home production will ensure a high-growth market for supply chain optimization. There is no central platform in the clinical trial supply chain for the house inventory and orders. The companies in this sector need to forecast patient inventory requirements, and manage the distribution of test samples to the appropriate laboratory sides, creating an effective trial sponsoring process through the adoption of advanced technologies to stay abreast in this competitive market
