The global prenatal, maternal and newborn screening diagnostic test market will be worth over $10.5 billion by 2021

A newly published report indicates that by 2021, the global prenatal, maternal and newborn screening diagnostic test market will be worth over $10.5 billion, up from $8 billion today. This market is subdivided into ultrasound, fetal MRI, maternal serum and noninvasive prenatal screening technologies and will see a five year compound annual growth rate of 4.1%.

Worldwide:  The new report, entitled GLOBAL PRENATAL AND MATERNAL DIAGNOSTIC MARKET ANALYSIS to 2021 indicates that the launch of noninvasive prenatal screening tests (NIPTs) in 2011 dramatically altered the market dynamic, and this sub-section of the market will see an 18% CAGR to 2021.  This is at the expense of more invasive techniques as chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or amniocentesis.

Since the 1960s, technologies for testing fetuses for conditions including trisomies have been continually advancing. The initial nongenetic testing such as ultrasound and serum screening for protein level markers, have developed remarkably throughout the years. Yet, these conventional tests are limited in sensitivity and specificity. Parallel to the development of these conventional technologies, two invasive techniques called amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) were introduced in 1980s to offer near 100% detection rates for trisomies. Yet, the chances of injury to the fetus and the consequence of miscarriages deterred both patients and obstetricians from using these techniques and to this date the techniques are used in high-risk pregnancies for the confirmation of positive results from screening tests.

When human genome sequencing was successfully accomplished, experts in the healthcare industry expected that DNA sequencing would mainly focus on genetic diseases in adults. Instead, the impact of sequencing technology has been primarily on prenatal, newborn and preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) tests (prior to in vitro fertilization). In a short span of four years, the different types of maternal serum screening tests and fetal ultrasound tests are getting gradually replaced by the new technology of  non-invasive prenatal tests (NIPTs). In the past four years, hundreds and thousands of these new tests have been performed in screening cffDNA from maternal blood.

The objective of this report is to provide an overview of the various technologies being employed for detecting genetic diseases in embryos, fetuses and newborns. The various chapters describe common pregnancy disorders, numerical chromosome disorders and structural chromosome disorders, single gene disorders inherited by fetuses, newborns and embryos. The global prenatal and maternal diagnostic test market is assessed with respect to:

• Fetal Ultrasound

• Prenatal MRI Screening

• Maternal Serum Screening Tests

• Noninvasive Prenatal Tests (NIPTs) using cffDNA

• NIPTs by Product

• Prenatal Diagnostic Invasive Tests

• Newborn Screening for Genetic Diseases

• Newborn Screening Market by Technology

• Preimplantation Screening/Diagnosis (PGS/PGD) and carrier screening tests
