Market Overview

The anatomic pathology market will show rapid growth due to the high incidence of cancer and other target diseases, growing focus on personalized medicine and a substantial number of supporting programs and training modules by government.

There is rapid growth in the geriatric population and the increasing incidence rate of cancer and other chronic diseases. Rising cases of chronic disease and increasing requirements to address the timely diagnosis of medical conditions are driving the market.

Due to the rapid increase in the prevalence of cancer, there is increasing usage of advanced pathology equipment such as staining systems, gross imaging, and digital microscopes that are poised to improve anatomic pathological practices to some extent. Digital imaging solutions also offer specificity and accuracy-related benefits over conventional techniques, which in turn, boosts the service uptake rate in the overall market.

In addition, growing awareness and an increase in the patient pool in developing countries is also driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the increase in healthcare expenditure and increase in usage of biomarkers during disease diagnosis are also found driving the Anatomic Pathology market.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, anatomic pathology is a medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis of disease based on the microscopic, macroscopic,biochemical, immunologic and molecular examination of organs and tissues. Anatomic pathology involves visualization of human tissue under a microscope for proper diagnosis of the disease or a pathological condition. Microscopic examination of tissue samples with the help of one or more stains is a standard procedure performed in anatomic pathology.
