The global digital pathology market was valued at USD 957.8 Million in 2022 and is anticipated to reach a value of USD 2,836.7 Million by 2030 expanding at a CAGR of 14.7% between 2023 and 2030.

A digital pathology incorporates the digitization of microscopes slides and data to create digital images which can be viewed on computer screen or mobile device. These digital images can be analyzed and interpreted remotely using computer software which offer faster diagnosis, easier collaboration and ability to store more data. Digital pathology is image-based information platform that involves acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information which is generated in digital environment. It is an innovation to reduce laboratory expenses improve operational efficiency, enhance productivity and improving treatment decisions and patient care. Digital pathology is known for several benefits such as improved analysis, reduced errors, better views, reduce turnaround times, and improved quality.  The type of images in digital pathology are while side images (WSI), tissue microarrays and digital photographs which are useful in multicenter studies. Digital pathology is useful in various applications such as diagnostic consultation, primary diagnosis, clinical research, training institutes and drug discovery.

Digital Pathology Market Major Driving Forces

Growing Demand for Pathology Services: Increasing in an aging population and growing healthcare needs globally lead to a boost in the demand for pathology services.
