COVID-19 Impact on Anatomic Pathology Market

Globally, the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted every aspect of the diagnostics industry, including the anatomic pathology market. In the last few months, the number of patient visits to hospitals has reduced significantly, despite emergency and OPD services being available in hospitals.

After commencing cancer surgeries or other surgeries, surgeons run through a series of pathology tests to decide the best treatment for patients. However, due to the lockdown in Q2 of many countries, elective and cancer surgeries have reduced significantly. For instance, according to the World Economic Forum, 28 million elective surgeries and 38% of global cancer surgeries have been delayed or postponed in Q2. As a result, the number of diagnostic tests has reduced. This has further reduced the sales of anatomic pathology products during the Q2 2020. Moreover, due to the robust increase in the incidence of COVID- 19, pathology laboratories are now prioritizing and focusing on COVID-19 tests.
