Immunohistochemistry Market Size Analysis, Industry Outlook, & Region Forecast, 2024-2027

According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, The global Immunohistochemistry market was valued at USD 1,736.4 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 3,359.8 million by the year 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.6%.

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) has crucial applications in the field of tissue distribution of antigens by using monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies. It is used for cancer diagnosis, because it determines the presence of tumor antigens. It is a technique which combines immunological, anatomical, and biochemical processes to identify tissue components by the interaction of target antigens with specific antibodies that are tagged by a label. Immunohistochemistry used by public and private organizations to check localization and distribution of cellular components within the cells.

Immunohistochemistry is being applied in many other areas. Immunohistochemistry is widely used to predict therapeutic response in two important tumors, i.e. carcinoma of breast and prostate. Both these tumors are under the growth regulation of the hormones estrogen and androgen, respectively. The specific receptors for these growth regulating hormones are located on respective tumor cells. Tumors expressing high level of receptor positivity would respond favorably to removal of the endogenous source of such hormones or hormonal therapy is administered to lower their levels – estrogen therapy in prostate cancer and androgen therapy in breast cancer. Immunohistochemistry techniques are also being applied to confirm infectious agent in tissues by use of specific antibodies against microbial DNA or RNA, e.g. in Cytomegalo virus, Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, etc. The application is used routinely in validation of disease targets as it allows visualizing expression of the target in the affected tissue during the disease process. Another important advantage of Immunohistochemistry is that it can also be used to detect organisms in cytological preparations such as fluids, sputum samples, and material obtained from fine needle aspiration procedures. This can be very helpful in certain situations such as detection of pneumocystis from the sputum of an immunocompromised patient who needs rapid and precise confirmation of infection in order to begin immediate and appropriate therapy.

Specific diagnosis of muscular dystrophy is important because of the genetic counseling implications of inherited disease and accurate prognostication. In recent years, abnormalities in several muscle proteins have been identified in muscular dystrophies. Such abnormalities involve proteins located in the sarcolemma, extracellular matrix, cytosol, nucleus, and other sites within muscle fibers. Skeletal muscle biopsy can play a main role in differentiating vascular dystrophy from non-dystrophic disorders and Immunohistochemistry can assist in establishing a specific diagnosis of the dystrophies for which specific protein abnormalities are known. In the last few years, immunohistochemical staining for beta amyloid precursor protein has been validated as a method to detect axonal injury within as little as 2–3 h of head injury. Immunohistochemical detection of axonal injury can be useful in establishing timing of a traumatic insult in medico-legal settings.

Rapid growth of healthcare investment in emerging economies and technological development in invitro industry creates the opportunities to manufacturers for Immunohistochemistry kit, equipment and reagents. Growing prevalence of chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, diabetes mellitus, and nephrological diseases are the key factors for the growth of the market. Significant rise in R&D spending and shift towards comprehensive healthcare solutions are impelling the market growth.
