Digital Pathology Market Size 8.3 Bn with CAGR 13.04% Owing to Higher Adoption Rates by 2023

The Global Digital Pathology Market has been assesed as a market on a fast track growth trajectory and is expected to expand at a promising CAGR of 13.04% over the forecast period of 2018-2023. Spiraling demand for pathological services, the dearth of pathologists, and increasing adoption of EHR are factors which will help the market achieve a valuation of USD 8.3 Bn by the end of 2023.

Pune, India, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Global “Digital Pathology Market” is primarily driven by escalating need for pathological services created by a shortage of registered pathology practitioners. The rapid pace at which chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and others are metastasizing, has created a dearth of pathology professionals. In addition, pathology practices have also been faced by other challenges such as increased demand, need to comply with regulatory standards, the evolution of new techniques, etc. This gap between the supply and demand acts a driving force for the growing global digital pathology market.

Moreover, the advantages of digital pathology over conventional pathology are inclusive of short diagnostic time, easier access to the slides, and reduction of slide mixing. Increasing adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and cost saving associated with the application of digital pathology are among other factors proving vital for the growth of the global digital pathology market. However, digital pathology, being an advanced paradigm of healthcare, involves the installation of associated technologies such as scanners, workstations, medical displays, and computer servers which raises the cost of implementation.

The high-cost structure is likely to reduce the adoption rate, leading to a restricted growth of the market over the forecast period. However, the untapped markets of Asia Pacific holds the key for further progress where the healthcare industry is proliferating.
