Rise in Prevalence of Critical Congenital Heart Defects and Government Support to Drive Global Market

Rise in prevalence and incidence of critical congenital heart diseases across the globe are driving the global newborn screening market. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, about 1.35 million babies are born with congenital heart disease each year across the globe. According to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics, more than 200,000 children are estimated to be born with CHD in India every year.
