The digital pathology market is expected to grow from US$ 852.08 million in 2021 to US$ 1,892.40 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% from 2021 to 2028. Factors such as technological advancements in digital pathology systems, growing preference for telepathology in remote areas, and digital pathology for cancer diagnosis are contributing to the market growth. However, the unreimbursed services hinder the digital pathology market growth.
Digital pathology comprises the gaining, organizing, sharing, and interpretation of pathology information.The process involves converting the glass slides into digital pathology slides using digital pathology scanning solutions.

A digital slide image file is then generated, which allows the high resolution viewing, interpretation, and image analysis of digital pathology slides.
Advancements in the healthcare sector are encouraging research and development pertaining to imaging devices and software required for digital pathology devices.The advanced systems help labs and hospitals to add value to the testing services.

The healthcare information technology (IT) helps physicians in maintaining optimal workflow, along with allowing them to meet the continuously changing patient expectations.The Aperio ePathAccess software offered by Leica Biosystems enables the sharing of digital pathology images and case data with experts outside the IT network.

Computerization, robotic light microscopy, multiple fiber-optic communications, and digital imaging are among the modern technologies contributing to the digital pathology market growth.Rapid advancements in whole-slide imaging (WSI) technology as well as software applications, LIS/LIMS interface, and high-speed networking.

As a result of these technical improvements, pathologists are now able to fully integrate digital pathology into their workflows.
The growing use of microarrays as well as a wide range of predictive models, such as API algorithms, and hybrid models bolster the demand for digital image analysis.A computer-aided diagnosis integrates image processing, physics, mathematics, and computational algorithms to aid in illness identification, anatomical evaluation, and disease progression quantification and risk assessment, thus adding to its popularity.

Thus, the increasing popularity of computer-aided systems is contributing to the digital pathology market growth.
Product Insights
Based on product, the global digital pathology market is segmented into scanners, software, storage, communication systems.In 2020, the scanners segment held the largest share of the market.
