Digital Pathology Market Trends



  • Growing prevalence of chronic disease to propel market growth


Chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, which account for USD 4.1 trillion of the country's yearly healthcare costs, are major causes of disability and death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the U.S., six out of ten adults as of July 2022 have a chronic illness, and four out of ten have two or more. According to figures released by the WHO, one in six persons worldwide is predicted to be older than 60 by the year 2030. The number of people 60 and older worldwide is predicted to reach approximately 2.1 billion by 2050. Additionally, between 2020 and 2050, there will be 426 million people who are 80 years of age or older. The aged population has a higher prevalence of chronic diseases. Thus, it is anticipated that an aging population would lead to an increase in chronic diseases such as cancer, and that demand will fuel the expansion of the digital pathology industry. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR.

Furthermore, the utilization of cutting-edge hardware and software has expanded due to a paradigm shift towards the creation of advanced infrastructure for the provision of effective healthcare services. Utilizing networked data-sharing capabilities, such cutting-edge systems can employ big data in healthcare to automate data management, support decision-making, and offer effective data analysis services. The demand for tele-consultation services has increased due to the rising interest of governments of emerging economies in promoting mobile health (mHealth) services as a complementary method to meet the health-related Millennium Development Goal. In order to provide effective healthcare services, the expanding IoT infrastructure development makes it simple to integrate digital pathology systems in laboratories. The market will grow significantly as a result of this.


However, through connected systems, the employment of smarter and more interoperable laboratory technology has been made possible by the advent of IoT in pathology laboratory services as part of the digitization of healthcare. The growth of big healthcare data is mostly being driven by digital pathology data. One laboratory facility, for instance, generates between 1 and 1.5 PB of data annually utilizing a digital pathology system. Concerns about the storage of data gathered by linked equipment have also been allayed by the lower cost of cloud-based storage services. Between 2015 and 2030, it is anticipated that the cost of keeping laboratory data would drop by around 98.98%. This is expected to reduce the additional cost involved in the storage of digital pathology data to some extent, making it more accessible to end-users. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate digital pathology market revenue globally.
