Digital Pathology Market Growth & Trends

The global digital pathology market size is expected to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2028. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2021 to 2028. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases triggers the demand for advanced diagnostics, which is expected to drive market growth. Growing economic stability and awareness pertaining to the benefits of using Computer-Aided Diagnostics (CAD) is further contributing to the growth.

Moreover, supportive regulations amidst COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to increase penetration of digital pathology system in coming years.A March 2020 memorandum issued by the CMS stated that laboratories would be allowed to utilize temporary testing sites, such as homes, for digital pathology review and reporting, even if they are not CLIA-certified (provided that certain criteria are met).

This waiver gives pathology labs the necessary regulatory flexibility to remotely maintain operations during the pandemic.

During the pandemic, interim extraordinary measures were put in place in relation to Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) audits.These allowed substitutions of on-site audits with alternative arrangements, such as desktop audit, remote audit, hybrid audit, and surrogate audit.

In July 2020, Proscia received MDSAP certification.

Digital pathology has an important role in companion diagnostics and drug development pipeline, including molecular biology, biobanking, molecular tissue profiling, and tissue microarray analysis. Increasing demand for high-quality tissue samples in tissue-based biomarker research is expected to propel the adoption of the technology over the forecast period.
