Europe Microtome Market Definition/ Overview

A microtome is a specialised tissue sectioning equipment used to cut uniformly thin slices of biological samples acquired from plants and animals. For various specimens and sample thicknesses, it consists of specialised blades made of metal, glass, or diamond. Hand-held, rotational, vibrating, sledge, cryostat, and ultramicrotome are some of the most commonly used microtomes. A block holder, knife clamps, block adjustments, thickness gauge, and an operating handle are all included. Microtomes offer a variety of cutting modes, including single, interval, multi, and continuous high throughput serial sectioning. They are commonly utilised for accurate diagnosis of chronic diseases and aid in cytological, histological, and pathological studies.

Europe Microtome Market Dynamics

Strong European economies like Germany, France, England, etc. have the money to setup high tech. and advanced histopathology laboratories in the region and hence, have the growing presence of the developed pharmaceutical sector and the significant demand for improved technologies related to health-care sector and has good affordability for microtome technology in Europe.


Increasing cancer screening awareness campaigns, such as those launched by Cancer Research UK, the German Cancer Society, the National Health Service (NHS), and the German Cancer Research Centre, are moving the market forward. In the United Kingdom, for example, the National Health Service (NHS) plans to implement cervical screening programmes for all women aged 25 to 64. This has immensely increased the awareness towards the technology of the microtome and driving the microtome market in Europe.  


Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Europe, and its rising frequency is driving up the number of histopathology tests performed. To forecast the start of cancer, a tissue pathology analysis is required when examining a malignant tumour. According to the World Health Organization's Global Cancer Observatory, 446,942 malignancies were diagnosed in the United Kingdom in 2018. Furthermore, roughly 178,473 cancer deaths were reported in the country's population in 2018. Similarly, 608,742 tumours were detected in Germany in 2018. However, the cancer mortality rate has been decreased in Europe by 5% for men and around 7% for women due to microtomes and this has increased the popularity of microtomes in Europe and all over the world. This is also one of the drivers for microtomes market in Europe.


COVID-19 Impact on Europe Microtome Market Restraints

The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant influence on the microtome market. The treatment of COVID-19 patients has prevented the diagnosis of other disorders in hospitals and clinical laboratories. Moreover, the focus has moved to finding a treatment for the virus, thereby halting all other research in the region. EFPIA member businesses, for example, are working to develop vaccines, diagnostics, and treatments to combat the outbreak. There are currently over 100 vaccine candidates in development and over 600 clinical trials underway worldwide and specially in Europe as it was the worst Covid-19 hit region in the whole world to find a cure for COVID-19. This caused lack of medical staff for surgeries, histopathology and pathology in the region and restricted the microtome market in Europe.


Europe Microtome Market Segment Analysis:

By Product, the Europe Microtome Market is segmented as Microtome Instruments, Microtome Accessories. Microtome Instruments dominate the Europe Microtome market with the market share of xx% in the year of 2023 as rotatory microtome, vibrating microtome, cryostat microtome, and other microtomes are available for various pathological applications. Furthermore, because to their ease of use, these systems are commercially available and have a high adoption rate. The expanding number of market participants supplying microtomes instruments is also driving market expansion. Merck and Biomerieux being the best key players from Europe doing the largest manufacturers and exporters of microtomes from Europe and are investing highly in making more advanced and AI enabled microtomes. Microtome Accessories have the market share of 29% in 2023 in Europe Microtome market because microtome accessories are not as easy to use as instruments and are not available in as many varieties, the accessories segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to increased demand in hospitals and clinics, as well as technological advancements in microtome such as mobility and user-friendly operability.


By Technology, the Europe Microtome Market is segmented as Automatic, Semi-Automatic and Manual. Automatic dominates the market with the market share of 60% in 2023 because of the growing need for technologically advanced items that can demonstrate the highest level of precision in section thickness and Europe has many advanced laboratories where these automatic microtomes can be used at their full potential and the key players in Europe make them a little more affordable for European countries as they produce these machines in large scale. Semi-automatic has the second-largest market share of 27% in 2023 in microtome market of Europe as they are cheaper than fully-automatic microtome machines and are also ideal for some processes for cancer and other surgeries like routine sectioning, most important for bruising out tumours which is the major problem in Europe; and research and development applications in Pathology and histopathology. Manual has the market share of 13% as the economies in Europe are quite developed and do not use manual machines and can afford automatic and semi-automatic microtomes. Manual microtomes need manual adjustments which needs a lot of time and perfection and the trend of automation in European countries have restricted the market of microtome market in Europe.
