With digital intervention in automated microscopy it is possible to cope with the dearth of pathologists. The AI based digital platform makes screening easier for pathologists in turn facilitating reviewing of samples remotely and offering timely consultations. Such advances are likely to pave new opportunities for automated microscopy market in the future.

Prevalence of Chronic Ailments to Trigger Demand of Automated Microscopy

Increasing prevalence of chronic ailments such as cancer has not only raised concerns among individuals and healthcare facilities but also is resulting in economic burden on the global front. This has triggered use of advanced devices to gauge the spread of the ailment in the patient’s body in order to provide effective and timely treatment. Chronic diseases such as cancer can spread across the body in less time and can cause severe damage, even death. To reduce the spread of cancer cells, breakthroughs in drugs used in treatment of cancer are in demand, consecutively driving need for personalized cancer treatment drugs which is expected to fuel the adoption of automated microscopy.

By using advanced technology in the microscopy field, such as automated microscopy, every phase in drug development can be concluded at a faster pace along with significant cost reductions while expecting results with higher efficiency and precision. The demand for automated microscopy is expected to increase on the back of its growing use by pharmaceutical companies that are leveraging the technology to speed up the drug development process. Moreover, with faster drug discovery and development, the time needed for FDA approval process for drugs can also be reduced. In this backdrop, increasing occurrences of diseases such as cancer among individuals coupled with increasing geriatric population is expected to present lucrative growth opportunities for automated microscopy market.

Fluorescence Automated Microscopy Likely to Gain High Traction

The sales and demand for fluorescence automated microscopy is expected have been witnessing significant increase since the recent past and is expected to maintain status quo in the coming years. Use of fluorescence automated microscopy has overcome less resolving power provided by ordinary microscopes using fluorophore tags which has fuelled its use across various applications. In addition, its adoption in live cell monitoring and structural elucidation of bio-molecule in tissues and cells has increased owing to its less time consumption without inclusion of toxic staining processes. Also, fluorescence automated microscopy provides higher degree of specificity to gain an internal three dimensional structure of cells. These features are expected to further trigger demand for fluorescence automated microscopy, consequently aiding market growth.

Asia Pacific to Remain an Opportunistic Regional Market

Emerging economies in Asia Pacific are expected to remain crucial revenue pockets in the automated microscopy market. Increasing research and development in the field of microscopy, developing infrastructure suited for healthcare, rising investments in this sector coupled with cheap availability of labour and land continue to influence automated microscopy market growth in this region. In addition, owing to favourable business environment and availability of a large customer pool, several major companies involved in automated microscopy are tapping the Asian soil, which is expected to further elevate market growth. Although gradual growth rate apropos to adoption of automated microscopy, the region is expected to showcase potential opportunities in the coming years backed by rampant proliferation of technologies such as artificial intelligence in the automated microscopy space.

Automated Microscopy Market: Competitive Landscape

Players in the automated microscopy market are involved in acquisitions, collaborations and partnerships along with developing new and more technologically advanced products. For instance, in 2021, Shimadzu introduced SPM-Nanoa, a scanning probe microscope that features noise detection mechanism and automated optical adjustments. This product was launched with a view to support research on cutting edge nonmaterial. In the same year, Discover Echo Inc. was acquired by CELLINK. The hybrid automated microscopes developed by Discover Echo and its huge presence in the microscopy domain will give CELLINK an opportunity to strengthen its position in the biosciences segment.
