Immunohistochemistry Market Worth $3.2 Billion By 2027 | CAGR: 7.8%

Immunohistochemistry Market Growth & Trends

The global immunohistochemistry market size is expected to reach a value of USD 3.2 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 7.8%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising prevalence of chronic diseases, increasing regulatory approvals, and launch of technologically advanced immunohistochemistry (IHC) systems are expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.

IHC has become a crucial technique and is widely applied in the diagnosis of several chronic diseases such as cancer, infectious diseases, and cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Thus, a rise in the incidence of these chronic diseases has led to an increase in the demand for IHC techniques. According to 2018 data published by WHO, globally, cancer was one of the leading causes of mortality, and in 2018 around 9.6 million deaths were registered due to cancer. The same source also states that every year CVDs cause around 17.9 million deaths, globally.

Furthermore, increasing regulatory approval and launch of novel IHC products are expected to support IHC market growth. For instance, in May 2019, F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG launched its new VENTANA ROS1 (SP384) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody, intended for the detection of ROS1-positive cancer cases. Additionally, in June 2019, the U.S. FDA approved the expanded use of Agilent Technologies’ PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx assay for the detection of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). This product is used in patients receiving treatment with Merck and Co., Inc.’s Keytruda (Pembrolizumab).

However, various limitations associated with immunohistochemistry techniques and the high cost of automated IHC instruments are expected to hinder market growth over the forecast period. Automated immunohistochemistry instruments for disease diagnosis involve high setup costs. As a result, various emerging economies still rely on cost-effective traditional diagnostics that are based on immunostaining of thin tissue sections.
