Microtome Market Research Report, Analysis and Forecast – (2021 – 2028)

Microtome Market Analysis

The global Microtome Market size in 2022 is $145 million and is expected to grow at 6% CAGR during the period (2022-2025). The global Microtome Market is segmented into North America, Europe, APAC & Rest of the world.

A microtome, better understood as a precision cutting instrument, helps to get multiple tissue sections. It holds the tissue in its place while a special knife that uses metal, glass, or diamond blades cuts through the tissue to get a few tens of microns thick slice. The tissue sectioning aims to diagnose any abnormality within the tissue that can lead to chronic illnesses, particularly cancer.

As evident from its function, microtome helps to enhance the accuracy of medical diagnostics. During the last decade, it has paved the way for precision medicine. Moreover, with the increasing prevalence of cancer, the demand for microtomes has also increased significantly.

Applications of Microtome

As discussed, a microtome is a precision instrument that helps get tissue sections of uniform thickness. These sections are then transferred to the histology and pathology labs for running diagnostic tests. To summarize, a microtome helps diagnose diseases whose pathology is concealed in the tissue framework.

Moreover, microtome has also made its way into oncology and precision medicine. The frozen section procedure is used for the assessment of cancerous tissue. It involves various steps, and one of these steps is cutting the tissue using a microtome. Then the histopathologists examine the tissue looking for any abnormality relating to cancer.

Increased Demand for Oncology Diagnostics

Carcinogenesis is the least understood process in medical science. Lack of information and proper understanding hurdles cancer patients’ accurate and early diagnosis. Conclusively, there is an increased risk of mortality in cancer patients. According to a WHO report, every 1 in 6 deaths occurs due to cancer.

Medical advancements have resulted in an increased geriatric population, ultimately growing cancer incidence. According to a report population older than 65 is going to reach 1.5 billion by 2050. So thus, the prevalence of cancer cases is expected to increase above thirty million by 2040.

All of this is increasing the demand for oncology diagnostics. Therefore, the market related to oncology diagnostic instruments is showing a significant rise. To conclude, the increased prevalence of cancer is driving the exponential growth of the global microtome market.

Way to Precision Medicine

Precision medicine involves individualized care. It comprises the treatment and prevention approaches tailored to the individual genetic makeup, environment, and lifestyle. It has helped manage several chronic diseases, but cancer management has significantly improved.

Precision medicine also requires the use of precision instruments. One of such instruments is a microtome. It provides the tissue samples for running diagnostic tests. These samples help to decide the right therapy depending upon the diseased state and severity. Therefore, using microtomes offers the opportunity to grow focus on precision medicine, also known as personalized care.

Barriers to Microtome Market Growth

Histopathologists do an analysis of the tissue after its sectioning using a microtome. Histology of tissue is crucial for evaluating the severity and stage of the disease. Histology also helps in defining the drug regimen for the treatment. All this is putting extra pressure on histology in terms of trained staff.

But unfortunately, there is a dearth of histopathologists. This decline is one of the most significant barriers to the growth of the microtome market. Moreover, the lack of diagnostic services, such as insufficient training of the professionals, is also negatively impacting the market growth.
