Non-invasive prenatal tests help in the detection of chromosomal aneuploidies (trisomy 18, trisomy 21, trisomy 13, monosomy X, etc.). Increasing demand for non-invasive prenatal tests is attributed to several benefits such as safety, sensitivity, and no risk of miscarriage during genetic screening. Increasing preference for late pregnancy (35 years and above) due to lifestyle and consistent modifications in the tests drive market growth. Advanced maternal age increases the risk of developing a fetus with certain chromosomal aneuploidies, thereby creating a huge demand for non-invasive prenatal tests. On the other hand, factors such as regulatory guidelines and ethical hurdles along with the need for invasive confirmatory prenatal tests could hamper market growth. The NIPT market could face 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 and the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and genetic counselors around the world have strongly recommended the use of NIPT only in case of high-risk pregnancy.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 700,000 pregnant women in the U.S. are at high risk of producing a child with chromosomal aneuploidies every year, representing a potential population base for NIPT. There are approximately 3.9 million births annually in the U.S. and approximately 377,886 births in Canada, representing target population for tests such as Harmony, Panorama, and VisibiliT.
Geographically, North America was the largest market for NIPT in 2013, accounting for a share of 58.8% in terms of revenue, followed by Asia Pacific. Significant presence of four major companies in the U.S. and launch of first NIPT in the country contributed to North America’s dominance in the NIPT market. MaterniT21 test was the first non-invasive prenatal test launched in the U.S. by Sequenom, Inc. and has recorded highest revenue and volume in North America compared to other tests. BambniTest was introduced by Berry Genomics, and the recent CFDA approval for the test would boost the growth of this test in Asia Pacific, both in terms of value and volume. InformaSeq non-invasive test was introduced by LabCorp in the U.S in 2014. Presently, this test is available only in the U.S. and is likely to be launched in other countries in the near future.
