Microtome Market Size, Top Key Players, Latest Trends, Regional Insights and Global Industry 2027

Microtomes are instruments used in the cutting of materials into thin slices known as sections. The accuracy of these sections can assist laboratories in determining and diagnosing the cause of the disease in biopsies. Market Research Future’s (MRFR) report on the global microtome market contains a summary of the drivers, restraints, trends, and opportunities for the period of 2019 to 2025 (forecast period).

The global microtome market is touted to reach a valuation of USD 120 million by 2025. It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. Prevalence of chronic diseases is the primary driver of the market. Tissue samples are required in research laboratories for identifying the presence of cancerous cells in the body.  According to the World Health Organization (WHO), close to 3.7 million cases of cancer are detected annually in Europe.

The growing numbers of the elderly and availability of new diagnostic techniques can fuel the growth opportunities of the global microtome market. Approvals of new products and subsequent launches can bode well for the market. For instance, Leica Biosystems added a new line of microtomes to its product offerings.

Competition Outlook

Kronus, Biomérieux, Qualigen, Diasorin, Merck, Danaher, Abbott, Roche, Autobio Diagnostics, Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, and Thermo Fisher are prominent names in the global microtome market.


The global microtome market is segmented by Product, Technology, Application, and End user.

  • By Product, it is bifurcated into two sub-segments, instruments and microtome accessories. Instruments comprise cryostat microtomes, vibrating microtomes, rotary microtomes, and other microtomes. The instruments segment is expected to hold the major market share owing to availability of these systems and their ease in handling. Within the instruments segment, cryostat microtomes are used in sectioning tissue samples free of ice crystal defects and operated in a deep freeze cabinet. Rotary microtomes hold the distinction of being heavier and stable than rocking microtomes and being able to cut serial sections. This segment can register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Vibrating microtomes, on the other hand, are used in slicing sections of animals and plants.
  • By Technology, it is segmented into manual, semi-automatic microtomes, and full-automatic microtomes. Full-automatic microtomes have held the market dominance owing to demand for systems with high precision.
  • By Application, it is divided into medical research and disease diagnosis. The disease diagnosis segment accounted for the largest market share owing to increasing number of tissue examinations in hospitals and research laboratories. Benefits of early diagnosis of diseases at a preventive stage are expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period.
  • By End user, it is divided into diagnostic laboratories and hospital laboratories. Hospital laboratories are dominating the global microtome market. This can be attributed to huge volume of tissue examinations performed in hospital labs.
