Keywords: Pathology


Pathology deals with study of the diseases by examining the body tissues sample (e.g. biopsies/pap smears) and body fluids (e.g. blood/urine etc.). Pathology includes every aspect of the patients care, starting from diagnostics to treatment advices and prevention. Pathologists work with physicians, scientists, nurses and healthcare professionals in hospitals to diagnose, prevent and treat diseases. Pathology comprises more than 20 different disciplines starting from general disciplines like cytopathology, histopathology, chemical pathology, anatomical pathology, medical microbiology to more advanced digital pathology.

Scope of Pathology conference:

Pathology is a clinical information benefit that is key to current therapeutic practice and human facilities. Pathology is utilized as a part of the study, treatment and administration of an growing scope of clinical conditions. Pathology includes the investigation of the harming effect of ailment on cells and tissues and the route in which the body looks to secure and repair itself. The pathology segment is a part of the worldwide pharmaceutical industry. Pathology administrations lie at the heart of social insurance administrations gave to patients and the group. They support the quality and cost adequacy of social insurance.

Business value of Pathology

The global anatomic pathology market size was estimated at USD 15.4 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. Increase in clinical use of biomarkers enables pathologists to determine disease pathogenesis at a molecular level and guides in clinical decision-making, thereby improving patient outcomes. Growing reliance on biomarkers-based pathology tests and procedures to explore common malignancy and tumorigenesis is driving the market.High usage of advanced pathology equipment such as staining systems, gross imaging, and digital microscopes is poised to improve anatomic pathological practices to a major extent. Digital imaging solutions offer specificity and accuracy-related benefits over conventional techniques, which in turn, boosts the service uptake rate in the overall market.


Companies are undertaking continuous efforts for the development of advanced and upgraded pathology equipment with respect to their design and ease of use. Moreover, there have been several partnership and agreement ventures among key companies for the introduction of an effective portfolio in order to circumvent challenges pertaining to disease management.For instance, in October 2018, Sakura Finetek USA partnered with Laboratory Medicine and Henry Ford Health System Pathology to advance the automation level of its anatomic pathology laboratories. The incorporation of automation in labs optimizes anatomical pathology workflows by minimizing errors and turnaround time, and also offers high productivity.The significant number of pathology-training programs by government authorities aim to increase awareness about technological and legal issues prevalent in anatomic pathology. These training modules also emphasize on the theoretical knowledge of trainees, consequently addressing the market challenge of the dearth of skilled professionals.


Hospitals dominated the market with respect to revenue in 2018 owing to high hospitalization rate of cancer patients, coupled with a substantial number of frequent readmissions in hospitals. Moreover, presence of well-developed infrastructure as well as well-trained staff in hospital-based pathological laboratories stimulates the progression of the hospital segment.The segment is also expected to benefit from increasing number of initiatives undertaken by public and private agencies to promote advanced healthcare systems. The emergence of advanced testing techniques and equipment has led to lucrative growth opportunities in the diagnostic laboratories segment. Similarly, a large number of clinical trials through various ongoing projects has spurred the progression of the research laboratories segment. Research laboratories are engaged in offering rapid and comprehensive information about the functioning of diseased tissues, with an overall objective of achieving a high degree of patient satisfaction. North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2018 due to the presence of major players and supportive government initiatives pertaining to training pathological programs. Rising implementation of tissue-diagnostic related procedures in disease screening owing to favorable reimbursement policies in U.S. facilitates regional market growth. Spiraling demand for advanced imaging modalities, increase in better patient care facilities, and several pathology laboratories franchising their presence fuels the Asia Pacific market. Presence of public agencies, such as Pathology Branch of the Chinese Medical Association in China aimed at assisting pathology projects, also contribute to regional growth.
