Global Microtomes Market Introduction & Overview
A microtome is an instrument that is utilized to cut extremely thin slices of materials. Sectioning of tissues is an important part of the preparation of samples, which can be later observed under a microscope. With the application of microtomes, sections of uniform thickness can be obtained for biological sampling. Moreover, with the utilization of microtomes, an entire tissue can be retained in sections, which is particularly necessary while studying the development of plant organs. There are several types of microtomes such as rotary microtome, sliding or base sledge microtome, and freezing microtome, among others.
The growth of the global microtomes market can be attributed to several factors such as the rising demand for digital pathology, high prevalence of cancer, increasing healthcare expenditure, and technological innovation in microtomes. However, the lack of skilled professionals is one of the key factors which will hinder growth of the global microtomes market during the forecast period.
The global microtomes market can be segmented into product, application, technology, end-user, and region.
Global Microtomes Market By Product
Based on product, the market can be segmented into microtome instruments and microtome accessories. Microtome instruments can be further segmented into cryostat microtomes, rotary microtomes, vibrating microtomes, and others. In 2018, rotary microtomes segment accounted for the largest market share. Rotary microtomes offer several advantages such as it enables obtaining thin sections (2-3mm). It is also suitable for cutting serial sections in large numbers for a wide range of hard, fragile, and fatty tissues.
Global Microtomes Market By Application
Based on application, the global microtomes market can be segmented into disease diagnosis and medical research. The disease diagnosis segment is anticipated to mark significant growth during the forecast period owing to the rising prevalence of diseases worldwide, rising geriatric populations, and the increasing prevalence of cancer.
Global Microtomes Market By Technology
Based on technology, the microtomes market can be segmented into manual microtomes, semi-automated microtomes, and fully automated microtomes. In 2018, the manual microtomes segment accounted for the largest market share owing to cost-effectiveness and ease-of-use. However, in the future, the demand for high-precision and high throughput is likely to propel growth of the automatic microtomes market.
Global Microtomes Market By End-User
Based on end-user, the global microtomes market can be segmented into hospital laboratories, clinical laboratories, and others. The hospital laboratories segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the increasing number of patients visiting hospitals for early diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
Global Microtomes Market By Region
Based on the region, the market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America accounted for the largest market share owing to increasing investments by private and public sectors, improving healthcare infrastructure facilities for in-vitro diagnosis, technological advancements and the presence of a large number of market players. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of cancer in North America is propelling the demand for biopsies, which will further boost growth of the microtomes market.
