Advantages offered by NIPT such as non-invasiveness, high accuracy and early detection; rising awareness, increasing market penetration in highly untapped countries in Europe and Asia; and continuous increase in average maternal age are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global NIPT market during the forecast period. However, the market could face significant ethical and regulatory hurdles associated with the implementation of NIPT because of the belief that it is likely to increase the incidence of abortions. Therefore, various professional organizations such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis, the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and genetic counselors across the world have set up guidelines that limit the use of non-invasive prenatal testing only to pregnant women at high risk of chromosomal aneuploidies.

In terms of volume, MaterniT21 test was the leading segment in 2013. However, the number of MaterniT21 tests performed would decrease during the forecast period from 2015 to 2022. This is majorly due to commercialization of other non-invasive tests and their positioning strategies. Due to the recent CFDA approval for BambniTest (Berry Genomics), the number of tests performed would increase during the forecast period.
North America held the largest share of the global NIPT market in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2013, accounting for 58.8% and 51.0%, respectively, of the market. Major players domiciled in the U.S. and relatively high awareness levels about NIPT in North America are the key factors attributed to the region’s leadership position. In Europe, market growth largely depends upon increasing penetration of these U.S.-based test developers and increase in acceptance of these tests. Japan, Australia, China, and India represent high growth potential markets in Asia-Pacific. A Large population of women preferring late pregnancy is likely to act as a major driver of the NIPT market in the region. The NIPT market in China is dominated by two local players: BGI Diagnostics and Berry Genomics. In addition, the recent CFDA approval for BambniTest would propel the growth of the market in this region.
