|Global Slide Stainer Market - 2020-2027|
|Published: September 30, 2020||Content info:||
The Global Slide Stainer Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% during the forecasting period (2020-2027).
A stainer is used to separate tissues or cells, toecast peri carry microscopic study and identification. A slide stainer automates the staining of prepared cytology or histology tissue specimens by diffusing dyes into the samples through direct or indirect staining, surface adsorption, or mordant staining. An automated slide stainer uses two processes, rotating transport and linear transport.
There is growing technological advancements in the slide stainers with a growing trend of laboratory processes automation. These are commonly used in labs for quality histology staining results. The development in the slide stainer market has seen some substantial improvements in their workflows, control and reporting capabilities, and overall productivity.
The global slide stainer market growth is driven by rising prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, technological advancements, and growing demand for automation in diagnostics and clinical research.
Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to drive the market growth
The growing prevalence of chronic and life-threatening diseases is driving the pharmaceutical companies and research firms to focus on R&D activities to develop effective therapeutics. Strides made in lab instrumentation automation have led to the application of slide stainers in disease diagnosis and oncology research.
As per the International Diabetes Federation, diabetes patients spent US$ 760 billion in 2019, of which, most was spent by Type-1 diabetes patients on insulin drugs. Around 463 million adults (20-79 years) are living with diabetes currently, and by 2045 this is projected to rise to 700 million. The proportion of type 2 diabetes people is increasing in most countries. Also, as per the American Heart Association, in 2015, approximately 41.5% of the U.S. population was suffering from some form of cardiac disease, it is further estimated that this prevalence is likely to increase to 45% by 2035. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S., about half of the population (47%) of the United States have at least one of these three risk factors.
According to the National Cancer Institute, the most common cancers are prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, colon and rectum cancer, melanoma of the skin, bladder cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, endometrial cancer, leukaemia, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer and liver cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, about 57% of new cancer cases in 2012 occurred in developing regions of the world which include Central America and parts of Africa and Asia; about 65% of cancer deaths also occurred in these regions.
Hence, the growing health burden of chronic and infectious diseases is a major factor boosting the demand for slide stainers, especially in developed countries. In developing countries, the prevalence of infectious diseases has increased the spending of the population on regular health checkups, which has encouraged healthcare providers such as hospitals to automate lab processes. This has increased the demand for high-performing slide stainers.
Rising adoption of automated slide stainers is expected to drive the market growth
The biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies mostly use slide stainers for the preparation of quality control slides. These companies biotechnology operate in a highly regulated market. Hence, the demand for standardized and rapid workflows has increased among these companies to meet the regulatory and quality standards. This has led to increasing adoption rate of automated slide stainer among pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies which reduces the manual interactions and errors and helps in reducing standardization and validation pressure on in-house laboratories.
The manufacturers are developing the automated slide stainers to meet specific requirements in various laboratory applications. Slide strainers with automated cleaning cycle and high-throughput capabilities can be processed in about 4-5 minutes. Both batch type staining and stain spraying can be performed in automated slide strainers. Vendors are manufacturing compact slide strainers with built-in design features. For instance, the Histo-Tek® SL Slide Stainer introduced an automated slide stainer offering a new level of convenience and standardization for your low-volume laboratory needs, all at a low total cost of ownership.
