According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Tissue Diagnostics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global tissue diagnostics market size reached US$ 3.8 Billion in 2018. Tissue diagnostics has been practiced across the globe for over a century. It is the process of staining and removing tissues for diagnosing a disease, and is mostly employed in oncology. The procedure is used for recognizing specific antigens that are present in preserved tissues. It consists of slicing thin tissue samples, which are treated with a stain of hematoxylin and eosin (H&E). These samples are then formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) in order to identify tumors and other specimens of histopathology. Tissue diagnostics help in detecting the existence of cancer and analyzing other features that may assist in making disease management decisions.
Global Tissue Diagnostics Market Trends:
With the emergence of network-based medicine, there has been a rise in the requirement of improvements across all facets of healthcare to enhance the detection, visualization and monitoring of diseases. Owing to this, several innovations have been made in the automation of novel platforms and staining equipment, such as digital immunohistochemistry (IHC), which is expected to play a vital role as an advanced laboratory information system (LIS). Besides this, the rising incidences of cancer have prompted governmental and non-governmental organizations across the globe to take initiatives for spreading awareness about the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. For instance, in September 2018, WHO introduced the WHO Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer, which aims to reach nearly 60% survival rate for children with cancer. Such campaigns are creating a need for high-quality diagnostic services across both the developed and developing regions. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 5.5 Billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 6.5% during 2019-2024.
