(U.S.), Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation (Japan), Euromex Microscopen BV (The Netherlands), Bruker Corporation (U.S.), Sakura Finetek USA, Inc. (U.S.), and Celestron LLC (U.S.).

The players are focusing on integrating new technologies to expedite the diagnosis rate associated with microscopes and lower the mortality rate. Collaborations, new product launches, and partnerships are strategies being adopted to gain a larger market share.


The pathological microscopes market is segmented by type, application, and end-user.

By type, electron microscope held close to 41.4% share in 2017, followed by optical microscope (18.8%), compound microscope (13.5%), digital microscope (5.4%), fluorescence microscope (4.4%), and others (16.5%). Electron microscopes can generate nearly USD 217.81 million by 2023 owing to their application in life sciences. Prevalence of diseases such as anemia and leukemia which require the need of electron microscopes lend credence to the segment valuation. But digital microscopes can exhibit the highest CAGR of 5.01% during the forecast period to accumulate USD 28.90 million for the pathological microscopes market by 2023.

By end-user, pathology & diagnostic laboratories accounted for 45.2% market share in 2017, followed by hospitals & clinics (38.6%), forensic laboratories (11.5%), and others (4.7%). Hospitals & clinics will be the biggest end-user of the pathological microscopes market by 2023. It can generate USD 206.25 million by the end of the forecast period owing to the setup of various branches of hospital chains to handle high patient volume. On the other hand, pathology & diagnostic laboratories can generate USD 239.73 million by 2023 thanks to possessing various skilled personnel and use of hematology, clinical microbiology, and molecular pathology for rapid diagnosis of diseases.

By application, bodily fluids accounted for 79.4% share of the pathological microscopes market in 2017, followed by tissue scanning (12.7%), and others (7.9%). Bodily fluids can generate USD 418.84 million for the pathological microscopes market by 2023. This can be attributed to use of fluid samples to identify the presence of diseases such as tuberculosis in the human body. High prevalence of blood disorders is driving the segment growth. On the other hand, tissue scanning is touted to accumulate USD 67.94 million by 2023. High prevalence of cancer and use of digital microscopes to detect abnormal tissue growth can fuel the segment growth.

Regional Analysis

The global pathological microscopes market, by region, has been segmented into Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). Americas is expected to gain control over the maximum market share during the review period. The regional market is projected to touch a valuation of USD 190.98 Mn by the end of 2023. The advancements of laboratories being observed in the region are expected to drive the growth of the pathological microscopes market in the nearby future.

Asia Pacific is projected to exhibit healthy growth owing to the rapid developments in the healthcare sector. The pathological microscopes market in the region is anticipated to attract massive investments over the next couple of years, thus, augmenting the market.
