APAC Digital Pathology Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The digital pathology market size in the Asia Pacific region is forecasted to grow USD 139.18 million by 2029 from USD 82.11 million in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 11.13% from 2024 to 2029.

Artificial intelligence in digital pathology can transform the patient experience with equipment and apps that provide access to electronic health records, radiology images, and other information, allowing patients to actively participate in the treatment process, which is expected to boost the APAC digital pathology market during the forecast period. In addition, unhealthy diet, cigarette smoking, binge drinking, and inadequate physical activity are among the primary noncommunicable illnesses caused by modifiable behavioral risk factors; demographic factors such as urbanization, population aging, and the need for higher-quality healthcare are further estimated to contribute to the market's growth.

Lockdowns and social distance restrictions have been implemented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Such limits have boosted demand for digital pathology systems, which allow pathologists to see diagnostic results remotely for primary diagnosis. In addition, the desire for quicker diagnostic tools for chronic diseases like cancer and an increased focus on increasing workflow efficiency have been significant drivers to the APAC digital pathology market.

Countries' authority allows medical device firms to pursue various marketing strategies and provides several options for product segmentation. As a result, the digital pathology market in Asia-Pacific is projected to expand in the near future. Computer-aided diagnosis, which combines image processing, physics, mathematics, and computing algorithms, aids in disease identification and evaluation of anatomic structures of interest and disease progression quantification and risk assessment. In the near future, these advantages are expected to fuel demand for digital pathology systems. In addition, the growing incidence of chronic diseases is expected to increase clinical urgency to adopt digital pathology to improve existing inadequate patient diagnostic imaging measures and lower high costs associated with traditional diagnostic imaging.

The high costs associated with these systems are likely to restrict their adoption. In addition, lack of trained personnel, limited adoption due to the availability of traditional pathology, technophobic pathologists' mentalities, image storage concerns due to extensive data, reimbursement issues, and a limited clinical test menu are expected to challenge digital pathology's adoption in this region.
