The digital pathology market research report includes a detailed segmentation by application, component type, end-user, geography. The global digital pathology academic research and teaching market is expected to reach USD 598.58 million by 2026. The demand for digital pathology solutions is likely to witness exponential growth as they help to educate and train professionals in pathology and histopathology services from remote locations. Hence, digital pathology solutions are widely adopted over conventional solutions for academic research, disease diagnosis, and drug discovery and development. Regulatory approvals are a critical step in deciding the application of WSI scanners and software. In Europe, WSI scanners are cleared to be used for in-vitro diagnosis under the European Union. WSI viewers, digital pathology software, automated image analysis, etc. are eligible for CE-marking. Hence, these developments are likely to increase digital solutions for academic institutes and research purposes.

The inclusion of artificial intelligence in digital pathology solutions and machine & deep learning have improved disease analysis, thereby influencing the growth of in academic and research institutes. Diagnostic and pathology laboratories are likely to account for over USD 358.58 million by 2026. The growth can be attributed to the increasing acceptance in Europe, APAC, and Middle East and African countries. As the systems have been cleared for in-vitro diagnostic medical devices application in Europe, this has fuelled increased investments in the market share. The global digital pathology market by contract research organizations (CRO) expects to grow at a CAGR of approx. 10.58% during the forecast period. CROs have shown interest in digital pathology solutions to improve workflow efficacy by using AI and automation solutions.
