Digital Pathology Market 2014-2018 Global Research Report (Slide Scanners, Analytics, Delivery Modes, Whole Slide Image Storage) Now Available With

DALLAS, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The global digital pathology market is expected to grow at 11.8% CAGR to reach an estimated $437 million by 2018. In 2013, the North American market was valued at $128.9 million and accounted for the largest share of the global digital pathology market, followed by Europe and Asia. The North American market is expected to grow at a healthy growth rate over the next five years. This high growth can be attributed to the favorable reimbursement scenario in the U.S. and the use of digital pathology to improve the quality of cancer diagnosis in Canada. However, lack of FDA approvals for digital pathology to be used for primary diagnosis acts as a major barrier for the North American market.

The European region has gained momentum for digital pathology. Some of the European countries have witnessed successful pathology projects which are likely to lead to higher adoption of digital pathology in these countries. Furthermore, Europe hosts various digital pathology conferences that aim to bring professionals under one roof and bring to light the ongoing developments in digital pathology. However, the Asian market, slated at an estimated CAGR of 13.7%, will experience the highest growth in the digital pathology market. The rise in awareness of digital pathology and its benefits, collaborative efforts by players, and federal health departments encouraging the use of digital pathology to improve the quality of cancer diagnosis are some of the factors driving the growth of the Asian market.

The major players in this market include 3DHistech (Hungary), Leica Biosystems (Germany), Ventana Medical Systems (U.S.), Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. (Japan), Mikroscan Technologies (U.S.), Definiens AG (Germany), Visiopharm (Denmark), and Indica Labs (U.S.). Rising Prevalence of Cancer, Improvement in Lab Efficiency, Drug Development, Increasing Use of Companion Diagnostics and Ease of Consultation Enabled by Digital Pathology are some of the major drivers of this industry.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, will explore the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures?
