Prenatal testing is used to determine the risk of whether the fetus of the mother will be born with any genetic abnormalities. It also analyzes the fragments of Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that is circulating in pregnant blood. The rise in the adoption of cell-free DNA screening for predicting the risk of genetic conditions, growing adoption of ultrasound detection methods in hospitals, increase in the risk of chromosomal abnormalities with rising maternal age, and growing demand for chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis in diagnostic laboratories are some of the factors that are set to drive the growth of the market. It is carried to check the presence of genetic disorders such as Tay-Sachs disease, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia and Down’s syndrome among others. Screening is further continued after a baby is born, called newborn genetic testing to check for genetically inherited diseases or congenital anomalies such as phenylketonuria (PKU), muscular spinal atrophy, critical congenital heart disease, hearing loss, and others. Prenatal and new-born genetic testing is significant in determination of various options during pregnancy to improvise the health outlook for the baby. Prenatal and newborn screening helps in prevention of infant mortalities and enhances patient outcomes.

North America dominated the global market share of the prenatal testing & newborn screening market in 2020 owing to the increasing research & development, and increasing penetration of improved medication. The demand for prenatal testing & newborn screening market is increasing along with the increasing availability of various treatments, increasing incidences of the diseases, and improving healthcare infrastructure.
