Noninvasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market – Insights

Noninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT), also known as noninvasive prenatal screening (NIPS), aids to determine the risk that the fetus will be born with certain genetic abnormalities such as trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 18 (Edwards syndrome), and trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome). NIPS can also be used in determining the gender of the fetus. The approach is widely used in diagnosis of Down syndrome. NIPS aids in decision making on various diagnostic tests such as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or collected from the amniotic fluid or placenta, in order to determine the presence of chromosome abnormality in infants. NIPS can be performed any time after 9 weeks into pregnancy, earlier than any other prenatal screening or diagnostic test. In NIPS, DNA from the mother and fetus is extracted from maternal blood sample.

NIPS is recommended for women with high risk of chromosomal disorder in infants due to older maternal age or previous child suffering from Down syndrome, trisomy 13 or trisomy 18. The test is also recommended when a woman has an Rh negative blood type. The mother might produce Rh antibodies after exposure to fetal red blood cells if the fetus has Rh positive blood type. This scenario is not a concern during a first pregnancy, but during subsequent pregnancies.

Noninvasive Prenatal Testing Market: Drivers

Increasing number of women opting for late pregnancies is expected to augment growth of the non-invasive prenatal testing market. Increasing number of working women has led to increase in the average maternal age, which increases risk of infants born with Down syndrome. Other factors that influence the scenario include, the number of existing siblings and the gap between the child and his immediate preceding sibling. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016, Down syndrome continues to be the most common chromosomal disorder, as around 6000 newborns suffer from Down syndrome in the U.S., annually. According to the same source, 2017, older mothers are more likely to have an infant suffering from Down syndrome compared to younger mothers.

Noninvasive Prenatal Testing Market: Regional Analysis

North America is expected to account for the largest market share over the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing cases of chromosomal abnormalities and increasing maternal age.

The market in Asia Pacific is driven by factors such as increasing disposable income, developing healthcare infrastructure, and increasing awareness regarding NPIT.

The market in various other regions is driven by high level of safety and guarantee offered with NIPT.
