Drivers: Increasing prevalence of chronic disease

Over the last few decades, the prevalence of chronic diseases has increased significantly across the globe. According to the WHO, by 2020, chronic diseases are estimated to account for 73% of all deaths and 60% of the global burden of diseases. Diabetes, cancer, infectious diseases, neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, lung disorders, severe pancreatitis, and renal failure are major chronic diseases worldwide. According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, an estimated 18.1 million cancer cases were reported worldwide in 2018; this is projected to increase to 29.5 million by 2040.

Restraints: High instrument costs

In immunofluorescence assays, imaging instruments are used to visualize and locate the fluorescently labeled antibodies in a sample. These imaging instruments are expensive as they are equipped with advanced features and functionalities.

Opportunities: High growth opportunities in emerging markets

Emerging markets such as Brazil, China, and India are expected to offer potential growth opportunities to market players in the coming years. This can primarily be attributed to the diversified healthcare markets in these countries, coupled with the high incidence of infectious and chronic disorders, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the increasing number of R&D initiatives by various organizations. For example, China and India have both registered a high prevalence rate of diabetes.

Challenges: Lack of skilled professionals

The demand for pathology services has increased significantly for clinical applications due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. Histopathology technologies account for the majority of the tests performed on cancer patients. However, there is a dearth of trained staff in these laboratories. Many histopathologists have reached retirement age, and only a small number of histopathologists are being trained. On the other hand, laboratories are under pressure to process an increasing number of specimens with limited staff.
