The increasing prevalence of cancer cases across the Middle East and Africa countries drives the growth of the anatomy pathology market in MEA during the forecast period. Cancer remains a major cause of death in the MEA region. Factors such as abnormal cell proliferation, hormonal changes, genetic predisposition, unhealthy diets and pollutant exposure primarily contribute to the incidence of cancer among the population of MEA countries. A survey in Egypt 2020 reported 61,160 breast cancer cases, 28,977 liver cancer cases, and 26,986 bladder cancer cases, among others. To combat cancer and reduce mortality rates, pathologists are researching advanced treatments. Anatomical pathology, a branch of pathology, plays a crucial role in tissue diagnosis of diseases. Anatomical pathologists possess extensive knowledge of various diseases' pathological and clinical aspects, aiding in disease diagnosis and treatment management. Anatomic pathology is vital in identifying and managing tumors, cancers, and other diseases, including kidney, liver, autoimmune, and infectious diseases. Market growth is driven by the demand for pathologists' examination of tissues removed during surgeries for diagnostic purposes.
The rising adoption of advanced technology in pathology instruments further propels the growth of the anatomy pathology market in the MEA. Digital pathology is a cutting-edge technology that utilizes virtual microscopy to share high-quality images electronically, enhancing the analysis process. Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning enables the creation of algorithms for medical image analysis to drive the MEA market growth. Researchers and manufacturers focus on developing microscopic devices and slides used in pathology studies. The growing investment by research organizations, government support, and favorable reimbursement policies further contribute to the growth of the MEA market.
The high cost of pathology devices and instruments is one of the factors hampering the growth of the anatomy pathology market in MEA. Factors such as a shortage of skilled professionals, limited awareness about pathology technologies and inadequate infrastructure facilities further impede market growth in the MEA region.
