Global Digital Pathology Market Dynamics
- Rapid technological advancements are fostering the market growth
Rapid technological advancements in digital pathology systems are also expected to drive market expansion. Digital imaging, computerization, robotic light microscopy, and multiple fibre optic communications are all contributing to the expansion. Whole slide imaging is one such technique that has several advantages over conventional light microscopes and is expected to boost the market.
- Rising use of AI in healthcare
The use of AI in healthcare is increasing, with a growing emphasis on improving patient care quality by incorporating AI into various aspects of healthcare services, such as pathological diagnosis. As a result, artificial intelligence (AI) provides smooth primary care flow and automation, allowing doctors to focus on more essential and horrific patients. Furthermore, AI solutions in the healthcare industry are becoming more humanized.
- Growing preference for computer-aided diagnosis
The growing preference for computer-aided diagnosis, which integrates image processing, physics, mathematics, and computing algorithms, enables efficient disease detection, and aids in the evaluation of anatomic structures of interest, as well as the quantification of disease progression and risk assessment, will drive market growth. Companies such as Olympus are providing a variety of tools for remote slide sharing and image processing, which is expected to drive market growth in the coming years. Leica Biosystems received FDA approval for the Aperio AT2 DX Scanner and Aperio WebViewer for remote diagnosis during the pandemic in April 2020. During this emergency, Phillips also received FDA approval for its IntelliSite Pathology Solution for remote diagnosis.
- High cost of digital pathology
High cost of digital pathology and the low adoption rate in emerging and underdeveloped countries will obstruct the market's growth rate. Augmenting keeps the cost of digital pathology low by functioning as a modular hardware platform with integrated digital pathology software applications.

COVID-19 Impact on the Digital Pathology Market
The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on digital pathology services. Digital pathology has the potential to "protect clinical services and pathology-based research in the current and future climates. This digital-based diagnostic approach represents a new approach to evaluating surgical pathology slides from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue (FFPE). It liberates the pathologist from the constraints of working with an optical microscope in his or her office. At the same time, it can have an impact on pathologists “social interaction,' including their interactions with clinicians and even patients. At the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a recent contribution from our group briefly addressed the changing aspects of such a relationship.
