Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Market Growth - CAGR of 13.9% During Forecast Period 2020-2027


Increasing demand for genetic testing in fetuses due to growing incidences of genetic disorders, integration of advanced bioinformatics to provide accurate information about the baby, and rising need for non-invasive testing methods are some key factors expected to drive Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing market growth.

Emergen Research has recently published its latest report titled “Global Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Market By Method, By End-Use, By Application, By Region Forecast to 2027.”

According to Emergen Research, the global non-invasive prenatal testing market size was USD 3.08 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 8.75 billion in 2027 and register a CAGR of 13.9% during the forecast period, 2017-2027.

Market Dynamics:

Prenatal detection of chromosomal abnormalities has been offered by the healthcare sector for over four decades. Better understanding of the link between higher maternal age and genetic disorder has increased the use of prenatal testing among older mothers. Non-invasive tests are being developed due to the risks that invasive prenatal diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling carry. Non-invasive prenatal testing involves a simple blood screening that effectively analyzes fetal DNA to pinpoint and detect baby’s risks for a number of genetic disorders. Increasing incidence of chromosomal anomalies, high maternal age, and rising awareness and knowledge regarding the benefits of prenatal testing are some key factors expected to drive market revenue growth over the forecast period.

In addition, advancements in non-invasive testing methods, growing incidence of pregnancy-related complications in second- or third-trimesters, and increasing adoption of prenatal testing for high-risk pregnancies are some other factors expected to fuel revenue growth of the market over the forecast period.

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) offers early genetic screening for chromosomal conditions using a small amount of blood. It offers genetic analysis as early as 10 weeks into the pregnancy and often has high detection rates, little to no risk to mother and the baby, and low false-positive rates. Non-invasive prenatal testing cell-free DNA from the maternal blood sample and screens for common chromosomal anomalies such as Down’s syndrome, Edwards syndrome, or Patau syndrome. The specificity and sensitivity of NIPT is high and the test generally reduces the need for invasive screening tests which pose a risk to the pregnant women. According to certain research studies, NIPTs have an accuracy rate of 97-99% when it comes to predicting the risk of common genetic disorders. These tests create fewer false alarms than standard first-trimester blood screenings and hence are widely adopted by the doctors for genetic testing in high risk pregnancies. Increasing number of companies offer noninvasive prenatal testing at affordable prices and this is another factor boosting their adoption and is expected to further drive market revenue growth going ahead. However, inaccuracy of these tests in detecting rarer genetic conditions, low accessibility to advanced noninvasive prenatal testing, and high incidence of test-related stress, anxiety, and risk of miscarriage are some key factors that can hamper market growth to a certain extent going ahead.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis 

  • Social distancing and restrictions severely disrupted businesses and operations
  • Lockdowns caused disruptions in transportation and logistics
  • Impacted manufacturing activities and mining operations globally
  • Took a toll on economy of various countries
