Prenatal Diagnostics Market Overview
Prenatal Diagnostics Market Size is estimated to reach $7.9 billion by 2027 and it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 12.4% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. Prenatal diagnosis is a way to find abnormalities of the child before its birth in the fetus stage. Prenatal diagnostics is in demand in the market owing to the rise in maternal age, miscarriage, a complication in pregnancy and the risk of chromosomal abnormalities which is helping to grow the market. As per the March of dimes organization about 1 in 150 babies are born with a chromosomal abnormality and as maternal age increases there is an increased chance of chromosomal abnormalities. For instance at age of 35 it is 1 in 192 and at 40 years age it increases up to 1 in 99. To diagnose this type of case, the prenatal diagnostic test is performed including non-invasive screening for detection of abnormalities and invasive procedures for diagnosis and treatment. This technique is used to identify hereditary diseases such as Down’s syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Patau syndrome, Turner syndrome, genetic diseases, chromosome abnormalities, neural tube defects, congenital heart conditions and other conditions. There are various types of tests developed to identify such conditions like Bambni Test, Harmony, InformSeq, MaterniT21 PLUS, Non-invasive fetal Trisomy Test (NIFTY), Panorama, PrenaTest, Verifi, VisibiliT and it is categorized as the first trimester, second trimester and third-trimester screening and diagnostic tests. The test is scheduled according to the days of pregnancy from nine weeks to thirteen weeks and from fourteen to eighteen weeks. According to FDA report in April 2022, only Non-invasive prenatal screening/testing is not sufficient to make the decision about pregnancy as it has chances to show false results. So experts suggest additional testing by taking samples such as amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, Fetal blood sampling and Amnion Fluid to get confirm results by sequencing of genes. Availability of advanced technology, healthcare infrastructure with advancements in bioinformatics and increasing government support like reimbursement policies favor the market and is anticipated to grow Prenatal Diagnostics Industry over the forecast period 2022-2027.

Prenatal Diagnostics Market Segmentation Analysis- By Test Type
Prenatal Diagnostics Market based on test type can be further
segmented into Invasive, Non- invasive (Bambni Test, Harmony, informSeq,
MaterniT21 PLUS, NIFTY, Panorama, PrenaTest, Verifi, VisibiliT, others) and
Others. The non-invasive segment held a dominant Prenatal Diagnostics market share in
the year 2021, attributed to the procedure's
non-invasive nature, higher accuracy and short duration. The non-invasive test
includes Bambni Test, Harmony, informSeq, MaterniT21 PLUS, NIFTY,
Panorama, PrenaTest, Verifi, VisibiliT and others. Among them, MaterniT21 PLUS
is the most popular owing to its ability to screen certain syndromes called
trisomies, including trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome) and trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) and it is 100% safe and 99% accurate. Such
availability of various advanced non-invasive tests propels Prenatal
However, the Invasive test is estimated to grow with the fastest
CAGR of 13.2% over the forecast period. Owing to the latest guidelines
updated by FDA in April 2022, it states that non-invasive tests are not
sufficient to make a decision about the pregnancy and they suggest an invasive
procedure for confirmation like a testing sample of amniocentesis, chorionic
villus sampling, Fetal blood sampling and Amnion Fluid. These tests help to boost the invasive prenatal diagnostics industry over the forecast period 2022-2027.
Prenatal Diagnostics Market Segmentation Analysis- By Method
Prenatal Diagnostics Market based on method can be further
segmented into Blood
or Saliva, Urine, Ultrasound, Amniocentesis, Chronic villus sampling,
Percutaneous umbilical Sampling and Others.
segment held a dominant Prenatal Diagnostics market share in the year 2021. This is owing to the
rising preference for ultrasound, non- invasiveness, safety assurance and the high-end
development of ultrasound technology which is able to develop 3D and 4D images help
to grow this segment.
villus sampling is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 13.5%
over the forecast period 2022-2027. Owing to assured results related to a birth
defect, genetic diseases and other problems during pregnancy. It is usually
done between the 10th to 12th weeks of pregnancy. CVS is
estimated to give a definitive result in 99 out of every 100 women having the
test as per National Health Service. Such advantages of CVS are helping to grow
the market over the forecast period 2022-2027.
Prenatal Diagnostics Market Segmentation Analysis- By Geography
The Prenatal Diagnostics Market based on Geography can be further
segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the Rest
of the World. North America held a dominant Prenatal Diagnostics market share of 35% in the year
2021. The age of a woman to give birth to her child is 30 or above in America
as per OECD. As age increases there is a high chance of getting abnormalities
in babies as per the National Health of Medicines, at the maternal age of 20
the risk of trisomy is 1: 1480 and the risk of other chromosomal abnormality
is 1:525 which is high increases at age 45, risk of trisomy is 1:35 and another
chromosomal abnormality is 1:18. As the age increases, there is a high risk
of pregnancy difficulty which support the Prenatal Diagnostics Market size. Also
various governments take-up initiatives to assist pregnant women and secure children are
also propelling the market growth. As per The American College of Obstetricians

Prenatal Diagnostics Market Drivers
Rising Incidence of Genetic Disabilities and Pregnancy Complications Drives the Market Growth.
Genetic diseases such as downy syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Patau syndrome, Turner
syndrome and other types of chromosomal abnormalities are increasing. According
to nature, more than 7.9 million infants (which is 6% of worldwide births) are born
with serious birth defects. This is owing to the increase in late marriage
preference by women, hectic lifestyles and unhealthy food consumption. Many
more research studies proved that taking the late chance of having a baby more
than 30 years, the chromosomal abnormalities and complications in delivery will
increase. Also, every parent wants their child safe from any type of
abnormality and preferred prenatal diagnosis help to drive
Prenatal Diagnostic Market.
Advanced Technology for Prenatal Testing Aid Market Growth.
Diagnosis of Prenatal is very difficult without the use of advanced technology, non- invasive method is mostly preferred by customers to avoid any type of surgery, or cut on or inside the body. However, invasive procedures like amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, Fetal blood sampling and Amnion Fluid are also preferred for accurate results enhancing the Prenatal Diagnostics market size. Also, rapid advancement and high-performance molecular diagnostic tools give accurate results. The Discovery of cell-free fetal DNA in maternal plasma enables accurate diagnosis of chromosomal disorders. Bambni Test, Harmony, informSeq, MaterniT21 PLUS, NIFTY, Panorama, PrenaTest, Verifi, VisibiliT and other tests are also available in the market for prenatal testing. Such genetic testing for pregnancy costs can go from $100 to $1000 in the U.S. Such use of advanced technology for accurate results fuels the Prenatal Testing Market.
Prenatal Diagnostics Market Challenges
High Cost of Technology Used for Detection Stymie Market Growth.
The advanced technology used for the detection
of chromosomal abnormalities is very expensive and is not affordable to people
with middle-low and low incomes. Also, this treatment does not yet reach many developing
and poor countries owing to a lack of good healthcare infrastructure, capable workforce. And skilled persons also lack of investment and low expenditure on healthcare limit the market for prenatal diagnosis in such countries. In an underdeveloped
and poor country, it is very luxurious and out of pocket to take such treatment
and most of the population is away from such kind of treatment due to the high-cost
burden and nominal income. According to World Health Organisation, half the population
around the world lacks essential health services and every year 100 million
are pushed into extreme poverty owing to the out-of-pocket health burden which hampers
market growth over the forecast period 2022-2027.
