The global tissue sectioning market is anticipated to expand at substantial CAGR during the forecast period, between 2020 and 2027. Increasing awareness among the general population regarding chronic diseases is driving the demand for tissue sectioning products.
Tissue sectioning is a technique which is used for cutting the tissues in thin slices to determine and identify the abnormalities in the tissues. This technique is used for the detection of breast nodules, which are used for the mastectomy and for the treatment of congenital megacolon in children and neonates.
Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:
- Rising prevalence of cancer and chronic diseases has led to the rise in the demand for tissue examination for diagnosing diseases.
- Growing demand for personalized medicines has led to the rise in the use of tissue sectioning technique. This, in turn, boosts the market growth.
- Increasing healthcare expenditures and presence of high-quality devices in clinical laboratories are fueling market growth.
- High costs of the instruments are expected to hamper the adoption of the tissue sectioning instruments.
