 APAC Whole Slide Imaging Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the whole slide imaging market in the APAC region was valued at USD 174.07 million in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 23.45% from 2024 to 2029 and USD 499.09 million by 2029.

The key factors driving the APAC WSI market are increased usage in drug discovery processes, technological advancements in whole slide imaging, and the growing popularity of virtual slides in research and development.

With the increase in research, many pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies have made significant investments in drug discovery. Therefore, imaging and image-based technologies are now mainstream in the drug discovery workflow and hold great promise, enabling researchers to understand and work with model organisms. Additionally, factors such as growing demand for new treatment options, reduction in laboratory expenses, and better patient care facilities will support the market.

Additionally, the use of whole slide imaging to study blood coagulation disorders and the increasing number of hematopoietic neoplasms is expected to drive the growth of the overall market.

WSI helps improve the standardization, quality, and manageability of research and helps reduce costs. Thereby, development in WSI is expected to impact market growth directly. For instance, Digital Pathology (DP) is generating a lot of interest among hospitals, laboratories, research institutes, and biotechnology companies. DP is also expected to increase productivity and efficiency by allowing pathologists to communicate with each other easily.Whole slide imaging devices are increasingly used for precision medicine and many diseases with digital technology, which is likely to be a key factor in improving patient care. Furthermore, with advances in digital pathology and computer-aided artificial intelligence technology, digital health is inevitably grabbing awareness from international and local companies, which will increase the growth prospects in this market. Moreover, developing regions have enormous potential for the growth of key players due to untapped opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region. On the contrary, the acceptance of scanned images in clinical validation studies by regulatory authorities remains a challenge affecting the market growth. Also, the high cost of purchasing and maintaining WSI systems, scarcity of defined professional billing codes, and lack of standardization of whole slide imaging may have a negative impact on the APAC whole slide imaging market during the studied period.
