Global Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The COVID-19 virus outbreak has impacted the healthcare sector substantially. Pharmaceutical companies and research institutes are increasingly focusing on advancing their digital platforms related to clinical trials such as software for the rapid development of therapeutic drugs and vaccines. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a change in the way clinical trials will be conducted. According to the TMF Futures: Keeping Data Alive, industry report published by Arkivum Ltd. a software and services company, 56% of the life science professionals say that they need to conduct more virtual trials by adopting telemedicine, remote monitoring of patients, wearable technologies, mobile apps, and devices for ensuring participants’ safety.

In addition, companies operating in the market are introducing new clinical trial solutions, which can be further attributed to the growth of the global electronic trial master file (eTMF) market. For instance, in August 2021, Cloudbyz, a clinical research and development solutions firm, launched a new cloud-based solution for decentralized clinical trials (DCTs). The solution offers advantages such as fewer data processing times and improved study administration to ensure better safety monitoring and patient enrolment campaigns.

Global Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) Market: Restraint

Increasing awareness of cloud-based eTMF among the market players is leading to increased usage of eTMF in large pharmaceutical companies. Moreover, all the documentation related to clinical trials can be stored and accessed from any part of the globe using cloud-based eTMF. However, there are some disadvantages for cloud-based eTMF. The absence of inadequate data privacy and data security of the electronic trial master file makes it vulnerable to cyber-attacks, which may hamper its adoption to a certain extent.
