Growth Factors:

The growth of this market is majorly attributed to the increasing adoption of digital pathology to enhance lab efficiency, the rising prevalence of cancer, and the growing application of digital pathology in drug development & companion diagnostics. However, a lack of trained pathologists is expected to challenge market growth in the coming years.

Digital Pathology Market Dynamics
Driver: Increasing adoption of digital pathology to enhance lab efficiency
Digital pathology helps improve lab efficiency by reducing costs, decreasing turnaround times, and providing users with access to subject-matter expertise. Improvements in lab efficiency are critical as patients and physicians are dependent on lab results for diagnostic decisions, and diagnostic tests are required to be completed and reported quickly and accurately. Moreover, access to digital slides via web services eliminates shipping costs and pathologists’ travel time. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the implementation of lockdowns and social distancing restrictions. Such restrictions have increased the demand for digital pathology solutions, as these can be used by pathologists to remotely view diagnostic results for primary diagnosis. In order to gain a competitive edge and deliver quick services, a large number of pathologists and pathology labs are adopting digital pathology.

Restraints: High cost of digital pathology systems
Although large hospitals with significant capital budgets can afford these systems, pathologists and academic institutes with limited budgets or IT support often cannot afford them. The high cost of these systems, coupled with a dearth of skilled personnel to operate digital pathology systems, is expected to limit the adoption of these systems.

Opportunities: Introduction of affordable scanners for private pathology practices
The development of affordable scanners is expected to offer growth opportunities for players operating in the digital pathology market. Most private medical practices are small businesses and cannot afford expensive digital pathology systems. The introduction of affordable scanners will encourage their adoption among pathologists with low or limited budgets.

Challenges:Lack of trained pathologists
Pathologists play a crucial role in performing laboratory tests essential for disease diagnosis. However, at present, there is a gap between the supply and demand of pathologists worldwide, especially in countries in the Asia Pacific and Africa. Thus, the alarming shortage of pathologists is expected to result in the increased utilization of digital pathology for providing remote pathological consultation and services.

The scanners segment accounted for the largest share of the digital pathology market, by product, in 2019
On the basis of product, the digital pathology market is segmented into scanners, software, communication systems, and storage systems. The scanners segment accounted for the largest share of the global digital pathology market in 2019. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the increasing adoption of digital pathology solutions across the globe.

By application, the drug discovery segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019
On the basis of application, the digital pathology market is segmented into drug discovery, disease diagnosis, teleconsultation, and training & education. The drug discovery segment accounted for the largest share of the global digital pathology market, by application, in 2019. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the growth in R&D expenditure, fueled by the need for numerous preclinical and clinical studies performed during the drug discovery and development process.

By end user, the pharmaceutical & biotechnologies segment to witness the highest growth during the forecast period
On the basis of end users, the global digital pathology market is broadly segmented into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, hospitals and reference laboratories, and academic & research institutes. The pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies segment accounted for the largest share of the global digital pathology market in 2019. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the increasing use of digital pathology for drug discovery studies and drug toxicology testing.
