Market Report Description

The North America Microtome Market would witness market growth of 5.2% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

A microtome is specialized precision cutting equipment that slices portions from a block of implanted tissue accurately and repeatedly. Different types of microtomes, as well as specialty microtomes, are used to segment paraffin and plastic-embedded tissues, as well as frozen tissues. A sharp knife and a tissue block are retained in a fixed relationship in any microtome. The tissue block is advanced by a predefined amount—the section thickness—with each pass of the tissue past the knife. Section thickness for frozen sections is typically 8 to 15 m, for wax sections 4–10 m, and for plastic histology sections 0.5–3 m. Electron microscopy requires extremely thin slices, typically 200 times thinner than wax sections.

The ease of access to advanced technologies, favorable reimbursement scenario for anatomic pathology diagnostic tests, growing opportunities for advanced cancer diagnostic testing and screening, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the existence of high-quality infrastructure for hospitals and clinical laboratories in the region are the main factors driving growth in the North American market.

The expanding elderly population in the United States is one of the major factors propelling the microtome market in North America forward. According to the world population aging report, the number of people over 65 in the United States and Canada is expected to rise from around 60 million in 2019 to around 80 million by 2030, with the 65-and-older age group's share of the total population rising from 16.4 percent in 2019 to 20.5 percent by 2030. Since cancer is more prevalent among the elderly, the microtome market in the region is expected to benefit.
