Microtome Market Size To Reach $233.0 Million By 2030

September 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Microtome Market Growth & Trends

The global microtome market size is expected to reach USD 233.0 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.4% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing awareness about early diagnosis of chronic diseases and increasing demand for technologically advanced diagnostic equipment are some of the key factors anticipated to drive the market.

According to the estimates of Laboratory Economics, in 2012, over USD 20 billion was spent on laboratory mergers between 1996 and 2011. In 2011, approximately USD 3.5 billion was spent on laboratory mergers. Increasing worldwide geriatric population, growing healthcare expenditure, and rising patient awareness regarding early disease diagnosis are some of the key factors expected to propel the tissue diagnostics market. This, in turn, is likely to boost demand for tissue slicing equipment. However, reimbursement cuts and hospital consolidation are some of the factors expected to hamper growth.

Although the U.S. ranks first in terms of per capita healthcare spending, spending on clinical laboratories is significantly lower as compared to other healthcare aspects. Moreover, overall growth in the clinical laboratory market is majorly dependent on demographic factors, technological, medical, & scientific advancements, and disease burden specific to that region. Developed economies, such as the U.S., Germany, Japan, Canada, and France, have huge R&D budgets, higher technological advancements, and more awareness regarding various health aspects as compared to developing economies. This is likely to account for majority of the share in these regions.

Growing number of histopathology laboratories, high growth potential of anatomical pathology labs in emerging economies, and rising awareness regarding digital pathological systems are some key attributes that can provide new opportunities to players. Adoption rate of histology equipment is expected to gain substantial momentum owing to growing usage of technologically advanced biomarkers in diagnosing various diseases such as cancer and other infectious diseases.
