Asia-Pacific (APAC) Anatomic Pathology Market is Expected to Observe the Highest Growth in the Coming Years
The APAC anatomic pathology market is expected to witness the fastest growth, propelling at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. The growth is mainly attributed to acceptance of personalized medicine, investment in diagnostic research by government and non-government organizations, increasing patient pool suffering from chronic ailments, and penetration of established players in the region.
Increasing penetration of international players is helping in offering innovative and advanced anatomic pathology instruments and consumables in APAC. For instance, in January 2019, Biocartis Group NV collaborated with Nichirei Bioscience, one of the leading suppliers of biological and diagnostics products in Japan, for the product registration and exclusive distribution of Biocartis’ molecular diagnostic (MDx) oncology tests in Japan, which perform on the fully-automated sample-to-result Idylla platform. Under the terms of the agreement, Nichirei Bioscience will seek the regulatory approval of Idylla MDx oncology tests from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare. After the successful registration, Nichirei Bioscience’s sales force has planned to distribute Biocartis’ Idylla platform across its commercial network of 2,000 pathology laboratories in Japan.
Besides, Biocartis Group NV got into a joint venture with Guangzhou Wondfo Biotech Co. Ltd., a leading diagnostic company in China in September 2018. The strategy behind this joint venture was to increase the commercialization of the fully-automated molecular diagnostics (MDx) Idylla platform designed by Biocartis Group NV in Mainland China. Such joint venture in the country is expected to thrive the anatomic pathology market growth in APAC.
