The Asia Pacific cell counting market is anticipated to reach USD 180 Million by 2030 at 9.50% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.Cell counting is a type of method which is used for the counting or similar quantification of cells in the life sciences, including medical diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases such as cancer. Increase in the number of White Blood Cells (WBC) may indicate the possibility of cancerous growth in the body. Cell counting is also important for researchers and it is one of the major steps in most experiments, which helps in maintaining cell cultures. It is an important procedure needed to be carried out before any analytical procedures and determine abnormal growth of cells. Furthermore, cell counting is an important step in many experiments done in microbiology, hematology and other medical specialties.
Drivers that increases the Asia Pacific cell counting market are emphasis of cell counting in the diagnosis and treatment of life threatening diseases such as cancer, along with a wide range of cell counting applications. For instance, according to American Cancer Society, nearly 1,688,780 new cases of cancer are expected in 2017 in the U.S., and about 600,920 deaths due to it. Furthermore, growing “out of pocket” expenditure and use of new technologies in cell counting led to market’s growth. However, high pricing of the advanced cell counting systems and lack of awareness among researchers to use advanced cell counting techniques are restraining the growth of Asia Pacific cell counting market to a certain extent.Figure 1: Market Synopsis of Cell Counting Market by Region, 2016 (%):
