North America 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.


North America Microtome Market Dynamics:

North America Microtome Market Drivers:

  • Strong Economies – Strong North American economies like US, Canada, etc. have the money to setup high tech. and advanced histopathology laboratories in the region and growing advancements in the anatomical pathology laboratories of developing countries in North America are one of the main factors contributing to the market growth of Microtome Market in North America.


  • Direct intervention from International Organizations - Growing cancer screening awareness programmes launched by organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are driving the market forward. For example, the CDC's National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) has provided access to appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to uninsured, low-income, and underserved women. The aforementioned factors are projected to propel the microtome market further in the future years.


  • Cancer - Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in North America, and its rising prevalence is increasing 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 data reported in American Cancer Society, almost 4.3 million cancer cases were diagnosed in 2021 in North America out of which around 1.9 million were diagnosed in US alone and 608,570 cancer deaths in 2021 which accounts for around 18% of total deaths in US. Increasing rates of cancer in this region and also increasing deaths due to cancer have led to increase the demand of microtome machines in North America and is driving the North America Microtome Market.


North America Microtome Market Restraints

  • Lack of expertise – In North America, the demand of microtome machines is increasing day-by-day and they are also able to satisfy that demand lately but the number of experts that can really handle these types of machines which are involved in such vital and sensitive processes are very less in comparison to the machines. For proper operations of microtome machines, trained and skilled people are needed so that no harm is caused to the patient and to the machine and due to lack of the experts, the microtome market in North America might get restricted.


  • Covid-19 effect - In terms of surgical wound care, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant influence on cancer patients, surgical cases, and others. Due to a lack of employees and resources, players in the microtome and associated accessories sector are having difficulty keeping their production facilities fully operational during the COVID-19 outbreak. In covid-19 pandemic time, the diseases have become more serious and more sensitive but due to lack of production, this market has been affected adversely.


North America Microtome Market Segment Analysis

By Product, the North America Microtome Market is segmented as Microtome Instruments, Microtome Accessories. Microtome Instruments dominate the North America Microtome market with the market share of 73% in the year of 2021 due to the availability of a varied range of microtomes for distinct pathological applications like rotatory microtome, vibrating microtome, cryostat microtome, etc. Additionally, these systems are commercially available and have a high acceptance rate due to their ease-of-use Microtome market growth is also driven by the growing number of market players supplying microtomes instruments.


MEDITE GmbH, for example, offers the M530 Semi-Automatic Rotary Microtome, and SLEE medical GmbH offers the CUT 4062 manual precision microtome. Microtome Accessories have the market share of 27% in 2021 in North America Microtome market as they are not as easy to use as instruments and also not available in various varieties but because of the increased need for these accessories in hospitals and clinics, as well as technological developments in microtome such as mobility and user-friendly operability, the accessories segment is predicted to rise at the fastest rate.


North America Microtome Market


By Technology, the North America Microtome Market is segmented as Automatic, Semi-Automatic and Manual. Automatic dominates the market with the market share of 51% in 2021 because of the growing need for technologically advanced items that can demonstrate the highest level of precision in section thickness and North America has many advanced laboratories where these automatic microtomes can be used at their full potential.  Moreover, automatic microtomes do not necessitate time-consuming manual modifications.


Semi-automatic has the second-largest market share of 15% in 2021 in microtome market of North America as they are cheaper than fully-automatic microtome machines and are also ideal for some processes for cancer and other surgeries like routine sectioning and research and development applications in Pathology and histopathology. Manual has the market share of 15% as the economies in North America 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 restricts the growth of this section in the region.
