Global Whole Slide Imaging Market to Reach US$ 1,257.4 Million By 2027, Propelled by Increasing Prevalence of Pathological Disorders

Published on Jun 10, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Whole Slide Imaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global whole slide imaging market reached a value of US$ 616.9 Million in 2021. Whole slide imaging (WSI) refers to digital imaging technology wherein pathologists scan conventional glass slides to generate high-resolution and precise images of tissue sections. It includes illumination systems, a camera focusing unit connected to the computer, microscopic optical components, and lighting sources. WSI relies on specialized scanners and software to examine, view, and digitize the glass slides and produce digital images for analyzing, storing, and sharing the media file through a virtual slide viewer. It aids in optimizing digital workflow, improving accuracy, eliminating errors by limiting human intervention, providing reliable results, ensuring immediate analysis, optimizing productivity, and archiving images.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Whole Slide Imaging Market Trends:

The global whole slide imaging market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of various pathological ailments, especially amongst the geriatric population. This is further influenced by the growing need for high-resolution digital images for performing accurate medical analyses. In line with this, the escalating health concerns have intensified the adoption of WSI in biotechnology and healthcare institutions to produce biomarkers and supplementary diagnostics, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the extensive utilization of WSI in immunohistochemistry (IHC) to detect antigens or haptens in the tissue sample for drug development purposes is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the large-scale integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions (ML) with computational algorithms and image capturing technologies to ensure precise diagnosis and medicine delivery are propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as significant improvement in the healthcare infrastructure and continuous research and development (R&D) activities in the field of medical sciences, are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1,257.4 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 12.10% during 2022-2027.
