As per the latest report by Allied Market Research titled "Digital Pathology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Growth Trends, Share, Opportunities and Forecast 2012 - 2020," the global digital pathology market was valued at $2.2 billion in 2013, is forecast to reach $5.7 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 14.3% during 2013-2020. North America led the overall digital pathology market, closely followed by Europe. The two landscapes accounted for about 79% of total revenue in 2013. However, their revenue will be reduced to 2/3rd of the total revenue generated in 2020, largely due to the growing supremacy of Asia Pacific region.

Digital pathology is growing technology in the field of pathology, where the glass slides are converted into digital images for easy viewing, analysis, storage and management of the data collected. The development and recent technological findings in the digital pathology market would take the conventional pathology to more advanced and strategic levels. Due to the progression in the innovation, concerns such as absence of qualified pathologists might be addressed effectively. "The decentralization approach in the digital pathology market will make huge difference in the field of pathology. The major factors influencing the market growth are cost efficient diagnosis, efficiency in mundane workflow and analysis," according to Allied Market Research analysts Debbie Shields and RohiniPatil. "These factors are impacting the outcome of the overall diagnosis process. The efficient technology impacts time, productivity and the level of patient care. However, the factors restraining the market growth are the lack of reimbursement policies by the governments, inefficient infrastructure and delayed approvals," explained the analysts.

As per AMR report, digital pathology market consists of whole slide imaging (WSI), image analysis - informatics & storage, and communication & integrated platforms. The WSI segment is largest revenue generator in global digital market for 2013.Growth of this segment would decline in future; however, it will still remain the largest digital pathology product segment during the forecast period. This is largely due to its capability to convert and share glass slides digitally with ease, safety and at lower cost. The image analysis-informatics market is projected to have the highest growth rate during 2013-2020, when compared to the other components. The steady improvement of analysis software to provide higher accuracy in the analysis of digital slides will enable the faster growth of the segment.

The end users segment of the digital pathology market consists of pharmaceutical research, clinical organizations and educational institutes. The pharmaceutical research accounted for the largest revenue in 2013 and will continue to dominate the global pathology market throughout the analysis period at highest CAGR of 16.9% during 2013 - 2020. This revenue increase can be credited to increase in the use of digital pathology systems (DPS) for drug development and discovery.

In terms of geographical location, global digital pathology market is segmented into four major regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia and Row. North America is the largest segment due to the higher adoption of DPS in most of the labs across the region. The Asian market is expected to have the highest CAGR compared to the other regions during the analysis period. The rise in the Asian market is due to the demand for better infrastructure and need for skilled pathologists.

The vital plans that are implemented by the manufactures to increase the adoption, development and sales of the DPS are product launches, agreements and partnerships. Most of the product launches target product up-gradation with new and improved benefits, example- 3DHISTECH, in 2013, launched Pannoramic 250 Flash - a next generation slide scanner, which has high speed and faster scanning capacity.

The key companies profiled in the report are Definiens AG, Digipath, Inc., Leica Microsystems Gmbh, Ventana medical systems, Inc., Nikon Corporation, Visiopharm, Philips healthcare, Indica Labs, Inc, Omnyx LLC and 3DHISTECH, Ltd.
