Digital pathology, as a carrier of efficient patient care in the form of long-distance telepathology and telemedecine, can support evolving healthcare needs requiring highly differentiated but integrated products and services. Top causes of inhibited growth is that the costs against the return on investments (ROI) weighs more on the side of costs, while end users’ attitude are no less restrictive. This study predicts that digital pathology will improve in future when new medical applications such as telemedicine as well as new opportunities in the diagnostic services, healthcare IT, and IVD sectors become available.

Key Findings

The overall digital pathology market in China is growing rapidly. The digital pathology diagnostic
services are expected to grow at a faster pace than digital pathology systems market due to increasing
demand in quality healthcare services and outsourced diagnostic services from private and primary
healthcare institutions.

High-end customers are demanding niche products.

The emerging market needs, evolving market dynamics, and competition force partnerships and
collaborations between different market segment participants to develop high value-added products
and integrated services.

The current digital pathology market in China is dominated by a handful of vendors offering highly
differentiated products, integrated services, and systems.

State-affiliated companies are protected against existing market participants and new entrants.

Major Class III hospitals, medical universities, research institutions, and government organizations are high-end users of digital pathology systems.

Low-end users prefer to adopt locally manufactured systems because they are inexpensive and meet their basic needs and requirements.

With continuous government’s support and favorable healthcare policies coupled with the development of the nationwide long-distance telepathology consultation and quality control program, growth in the total digital pathology market is expected in coming years.

Progressive implementation of digital pathology systems will affect the developments and growth of adjacent industries such as healthcare information technologies and systems.
