Asia Pacific Immunohistochemistry Market size was valued at USD 492.16 million in 2023. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 532.81 million in 2024 to USD 1.1 Bn by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period.

Market Overview

The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions has resulted in a broader application of Immunohistochemistry (IHC) techniques in diagnostics. The steady rise in cancer incidence is expected to drive the market demand for effective diagnostic methods, with immunohistochemistry playing a significant role. This technique is crucial for determining oncogenesis and diagnosing cancer, distinguishing between malignant and benign tumors, and identifying different stages of the disease. It enables the use of polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to detect specific antigens in tissues, providing valuable information about the presence of tumor antigens.

The field of conventional Immunohistochemistry (IHC) has undergone a revolution with the introduction of advanced techniques like multiplex IHC, computational pathology, and next-generation IHC. Multiplex IHC has the capability to amplify the amount of data obtained from a single or limited tissue sample, providing insights into cellular interactions. For instance, NeoGenomics' MultiOmyx is a multiplexing technique designed to analyze proteins and biomarkers within a single tumor section.

  • For instance, in September 2023, Cell Signaling Technology (CST) launched SingalStar Multiplex IHC technology, enabling high-throughput IHC assays.

Growth Drivers

Rise in healthcare spending

The global surge in healthcare spending is fueling the demand for the implementation of immunohistochemistry techniques in the healthcare sector. In 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a significant increase in global healthcare spending, reaching 11% of the global Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or USD 9 trillion. Furthermore, developing countries in Asia, including India, Indonesia, & Philippines, are ramping up their healthcare expenditure to enhance overall health services. The healthcare industry is transforming a fee-for-service model to a value-based model, where reimbursement is tied to treatment outcomes. There is increasing global pressure to reduce healthcare costs as they escalate more rapidly than the growth of economies.

Product launches

Major players in the market are unveiling new IHC reagents and antibodies tailored for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. For instance, in March 2023, Aptamer Group plc introduced Optimer-Fc as a novel reagent designed for automated Immunohistochemistry (IHC) workflows. Additionally, through a collaboration with Bethyl Laboratories, Biocare Medical introduced a TIGIT IVD rabbit monoclonal antibody specifically for IHC applications. These strategic initiatives are contributing to the growth of the immunohistochemistry market.


Restraining Factors

Product substitutes

Immunohistochemistry faces a considerable number of direct product substitutes. The prevalence of traditional methods, flow cytometry, in-situ hybridization, & fluorescence detection is anticipated to have a negative impact. Nevertheless, the rapid technological advancements are poised to supplant conventional tools, mitigating the threat to some extent.

By Product Analysis

Reagents segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The reagents segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period. These substances are crucial for ensuring consistent staining and delivering accurate results most efficiently. Manufacturers typically validate and optimize reagents, considering their specific use in a particular IHC procedure. The spectrum of reagents encompasses blocking sera and reagents, fixation reagents, chromogenic substrates, stabilizers, organic solvents, diluents, and proteolytic enzymes. The market offers a diverse array of reagents, each customized for specific steps within the IHC process.

The antibodies segment held the largest share. This substantial share is attributed to the extensive use of antibodies in disease diagnosis & drug testing. Antibodies are categorized into primary & secondary antibodies, forming a crucial foundation in various applications such as pathology, neuropathology, & hematopathology. Immunohistochemistry, involving antibody-antigen reactions for disease detection, is preferred over conventional staining procedures.

By Application Analysis

Diagnostic segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The diagnostic segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023. Immunohistochemistry serves as a widely utilized tool for diagnosing chronic conditions. It holds particular significance in cancer diagnosis by detecting specific tumor antigens in certain cancers. In the context of breast cancer diagnosis, Immunohistochemistry staining is applied to fresh or frozen tissue obtained during biopsy. This process aids in the identification of HER2 or hormone receptor proteins on the surface of cancer cells. The substantial applications of immunohistochemistry in diagnostics play a pivotal role in driving the growth of this segment.

The research segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate. IHC is a cornerstone for researchers in academia, pharmaceutical companies, & healthcare institutions aiming to advance knowledge across diverse fields such as oncology, neurology, immunology, & pathology. Robust investments by governments and academic institutions in medical research are contributing significantly to the growth of this segment.

By End-use Analysis

Hospitals segment registered the largest share of the market in 2023

Hospitals held the largest share. The evolving landscape of the healthcare industry, marked by continual advancements, has driven the demand for hospitals equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Additionally, the increasing frequency of hospitalizations has substantially contributed to the robust growth of this segment. The escalating prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer, infectious diseases, & autoimmune diseases has fueled a heightened demand for hospitals, particularly for the detection of antigens in cancer diagnosis.

The research institutes segment will grow rapidly. It is primarily driven by the widespread adoption of immunohistochemistry techniques in drug testing. Research institutes actively engage with the consortia to combine resources, expertise, & data.
