Global Manual Microtome Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A manual microtome is a device used for slicing thin sections of biological tissues for microscopic examination. The tissue specimen is mounted on a glass slide, and the microtome blade is used to make a thin slice, which is then transferred to another slide for further examination.

Rotary Microtome:

Rotary microtome is a tool used for cutting and shaving thin slices from solid material with the help of a rotating blade. It’s major application includes slicing bread, vegetables, cheese etc. The product also finds its utility in various end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverages and research institutes among others.

Sliding Microtome:

The sliding microtome is a tool that is used to cut very thin slices of an object. It works by moving the blade over the surface of an object and cutting off small pieces which are then collected in a container. The process can be repeated as many times as required until the entire length of the desired slice has been obtained.

It's major applications include slicing bread, cheese, vegetables.

Application Insights:

The manual microtomes are used in hospitals, laboratories and other application segments. In 2017, the hospital segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 60%. The growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing number of surgeries and an increase in patient admissions. For instance, according to the National Health Statistics Report 2016-2017 published by U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), there were 685 million outpatient visits and 1.7 billion days spent in hospitals by patients from all age groups across America during 2015-2016 period. These factors are expected to drive product demand over the forecast period from 2018 to 2030 ¢â‚¬Å“ Hospital use manual microtomes for cutting tissue samples for diagnosis or research purposes¢â‚¬ said Dr Anand Veeravalli, lead analyst at Technomic Analytics & Research LLC.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The presence of well-developed healthcare infrastructure and high adoption rate for advanced technology are some factors responsible for its large share. Furthermore, increasing government funding to support R&D activities is also expected to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing regions during the forecast period owing to rising medical tourism and improving healthcare facilities due to increased disposable income coupled with government initiatives such as “Hospital Improvement Program” (HIP) that aims at reducing maternal mortality ratio in India by focusing on upgrading existing hospitals into super speciality hospitals will boost demand further.

In addition, Latin America region is projecteded grow at a lucrative CAGR during same years due to riseing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disorders.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for histopathology and immunohistochemistry services
  • Growing number of research institutes and universities
  • Rising prevalence of chronic diseases
  • Technological advancements in the field of microscopy
  • Increasing awareness about diagnostic procedures
