Digital Pathology Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing adoption of digital pathology to enhance lab efficiency

Digital pathology helps improve lab efficiency by reducing costs, decreasing turnaround times, and providing users with access to subject-matter expertise. Improvements in lab efficiency are critical as patients and physicians are dependent on lab results for diagnostic decisions, and diagnostic tests are required to be completed and reported quickly & accurately. Moreover, access to digital slides via web services eliminate shipping costs and travel time for pathologists. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the implementation of lockdowns and social distancing restrictions. Such restrictions have increased the demand for digital pathology solutions, as pathologists can use these to view diagnostic results for primary diagnosis remotely.

Restraint: High cost of digital pathology systems

A typical digital pathology system, which includes a slide scanner, an image server, and software, costs around USD 500,000 to USD 700,000. The average price of a digital pathology scanner in the Asia Pacific is around USD 110,000 to USD 130,000. Although large hospitals with significant capital budgets can afford these systems, pathologists and academic institutes with limited budgets or IT support often cannot afford them. Healthcare providers, particularly in developing countries like India, Brazil, and Mexico, have low financial resources to invest in such costly technologies. Moreover, trained staff is required for the efficient handling and maintenance of digital pathology systems. The high cost of these systems, coupled with the challenge of a dearth of skilled personnel to operate digital pathology systems, is expected to limit the adoption of these systems.

Opportunity: Introduction of affordable scanners for private pathology practices

The price point of digital pathology hardware, including scanners, is a major restraint to market growth. Therefore, the development of affordable scanners is expected to offer growth opportunities for players operating in the digital pathology market. Most private medical practices are small businesses and cannot afford expensive digital pathology systems. The introduction of affordable scanners and the propensity of small players to move towards digitization of pathology workflow will encourage its adoption among pathologists with low or limited budgets.

Challenges: Shortage of trained pathologists

Pathologists play a crucial role in performing laboratory tests essential for disease diagnosis. However, there is a gap between the supply and demand of pathologists worldwide, especially in Africa and the Asia Pacific region countries. According to a Springer study (2020), Switzerland's number of inhabitants per pathologist is 35,355; in Canada and the US, this number is 20,658 and 25,325, respectively. In Germany, there is one pathologist per 47,989 inhabitants.

 Digital pathology enables medical practitioners to remotely share important information with pathologists beyond geographical boundaries securely and timely. Moreover, advanced technologies, such as AI and machine learning, helps pathologists identify diseases faster and help improve their efficacy and efficiency. Thus, the alarming shortage of pathologists is expected to result in the increased utilization of digital pathology for providing remote pathological consultation and services.
