Research and Markets
Posted on: 24 Oct 16

DUBLIN, October 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Prenatal Testing Market Analysis & Forecast, 2016-2022" report to their offering.

The global prenatal testing market is growing at a CAGR of 28.85% from 2016 to 2022 and is estimated to grow over $7.2 billion by 2022.

Prenatal tests are classified into two main categories viz. Screening and Diagnostics. Both screening and diagnostics have witnessed an exponential growth in procuring treatments for disorders which increased in the past two decades. Screening prenatal tests are further divided into Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Screening (NIPT) and other screening processes such as Cell-Free Foetal DNA (cffDNA), Maternal Serum Screening (MSS), Nuchal Scan (NT Procedure), Triple Test, and Quadruple Test.

The diagnostics market is further divided into two categories viz. Invasive and Non-Invasive. Invasive testing is a conventional technology amongst prenatal techniques because of which it is still leading the market. Due to low cost, invasive testing is preferred by people in developing countries, whereas the non-invasive is costly as well as comparatively a more recent technology which will take time to gain popularity. Non-invasive techniques cause no harm to the human body and thus are gaining preference amongst patients in developed regions around the world.

The U.S., the U.K., Japan, and India show a dynamic growth in the overall market due to an increasing prevalence of genetic disorders in these countries. The APAC region is focusing more on technological development and introduction of advanced tools in the field of prenatal and newborn care in order to develop specific tests and solutions.

The answers to the following key questions can be found in the report:
