Digital Pathology Market Outlook 2024: Global Opportunity and Demand Analysis, Market Forecast, 2016-2024

Published On : 2017-11-01 Report Page : 310 Category:Healthcare

Global Digital Pathology Market

Market Overview

Digital pathology can also be referred as virtual microscopy, comprises of the acquisition, management, sharing and interpretation of pathology information containing slides and data in a digital environment. Digital slides are fabricated when glass slides are captured with a scanning device, to provide a high-resolution digital image that can be visualized on a computer screen or mobile device. Rapid rise in digital pathology imaging solutions has totally transformed management and interpretation of glass slides, with analysis and interpretation of histological images conducted on a computer screen in the laboratory.

Recently, Philips expands its digital pathology solutions portfolio with the acquisition of PathXL and PathXL software is about to provide UPMC with an end to end solution for institution wide digital pathology education program. Similarly, Indica labs offer slide scanning and consultative image analysis services and it is the first company to offer tissue specific and application specific image analysis algorithms in a truly integrated digital pathology environment and Visiopharm, in collaboration with LRI Imaging and Inter Instrument A, collaborate to deploy the digital pathology systems throughout Scandinavia.

In Indonesia, digital pathology is at nascent stage though but expected to witness a tremendous growth and represents the largest opportunity, as clinical labs are undergoing radical changes in adopting high-tech and automation. Furthermore, to ensure seamless care pathway and the need to demonstrate high throughput capacity and increase efficiency motivates hospitals and clinical labs to adopt digital pathology solutions.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

With the advent of digital pathology come the remote conferencing, metadata and images, improved analysis, archival and integration with LIS (library and information science) that transformed the technology towards ePathology. It accredit the pathologist to engage, evaluate, and collaborate rapidly and remotely, with transparency and consistency, thus improving efficiency and productivity of the pathology, along with enhancing the future of digital pathology that eventually could encompass enhanced translational research, computer aided diagnosis (CAD) and personalized medicine.

Nevertheless, challenges like cost ineffectiveness, lack of trained personnel, limited adoption due to the availability of traditional pathology, mindset of technophobic pathologists, image storage concern due to large data, LIS integration concerns, reimbursement issues and limited clinical test menu curtail the penetration of digital pathology.

Market Size and Forecast (2016-2024)

According to Goldstein Research, with wide ranging applications like health and pharmaceutical sectors, education and contract research organizations, realized benefits of this sophisticated technology have encourage high growth in the market for digital pathology, which is estimated to be worth USD 7.1 billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 16% over the forecast period.

On the basis of product type, whole slide imaging is the highest revenue-generating segment as it is the most preferred method used to produce digital slides by scanning the whole glass slide and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.65% over the forecast period while on the basis of end-user, hospitals & diagnostic lab along with pharma & biotech companies comprises the major share of global digital pathology market i.e. around 70%.

Regionally, North America dominates the digital pathology market closely followed by Europe while APAC would exhibit the highest CAGR of 25% over the forecast period owing to the developing role in companion diagnostics and drug development pipeline.
