·4 min read

DUBLIN, December 02, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Histology And Cytology Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Type Of Examination (Histology, Cytology), By Product, By Application, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2021 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global histology and cytology market size is expected to reach USD 37.10 billion by 2028 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 14.74% from 2021 to 2028.

The factors contributing to the market growth include an increase in the demand for the early detection of diseases, increased standardization of pathology laboratories, and implementation of immunohistochemistry and innovation in microscopy.

In addition, organizations are collaborating for the standardization of cytopathology across the world, which is driving the market. For instance, in May 2020, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) entered in collaboration with the International Academy of Cytology (IAC) for publishing a series of cytopathology reporting systems for presenting an international approach that can be used for cytopathology of different body sites. The two organizations are engaged in the expansion and development of internationally recognized diagnostic reports for cancer and other precancerous disorders worldwide.

Moreover, companies are launching new and automated instruments for cytology, which is further contributing to the market growth. For instance, in January 2021, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. launched uPath HER2 Dual ISH image analysis and uPath HER2 (4B5) image analysis - two automated digital pathology algorithms for breast cancer. These two solutions offer rapid and accurate patient diagnoses in breast cancer.

COVID-19 has become a catalyst for changing traditional pathology workflows with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and digitalization solutions. During the pandemic, these tools have helped and continue to assist in remote reviewing of pathological cases, hence preventing the delay in patient care. Companies have reported the increasing adoption of digital pathology solutionspost-COVID-19.

Histology And Cytology Market Report Highlights
