Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market by Instruments (Ultrasound, NGS, PCR, Microarray), Consumables, Method (FCMB, cf-DNA), Application (Trisomy, Microdeletion, Genetics, Rh factor) & End User (Hospital, Diagnostic Labs) - Global Forecast to 2021
The global non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) market is projected to reach USD 2.88 billion by 2021 from USD 1.35 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 16.4% from 2016 to 2021. The major factors driving the growth of this market include the growing preference for non-invasive techniques over invasive methods, rising focus on reimbursement for NIPT, launch of new and advanced NIPT products, and increasing maternal age (associated with growth in the risk of chromosomal abnormalities in babies). Furthermore, untapped emerging markets are expected to offer potential growth opportunities to players operating in the NIPT market during the forecast period.
By product, the non-invasive prenatal testing market is segmented into consumables and instruments. In 2016, the consumables segment accounted for the largest share of the market. The high demand due to the recurring requirement of consumables as compared to instruments is a key driver for the growth of this product segment.
On the basis of method, the market is segmented into ultrasound detection, biochemical screening tests, fetal cells in maternal blood tests, and cell-free DNA in maternal plasma tests. The ultrasound detection segment dominated the market in 2016. However, the cell-free DNA in maternal plasma tests segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR. This is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for cf-DNA based techniques in NIPT testing and rising government initiatives to provide prenatal services.
On the basis of application, the market is segmented into Trisomy, microdeletion syndrome, and other applications. Trisomy commands the largest and fastest-growing application segment of the global market in 2016. This is attributed to factors such as increasing maternal age and rising incidence of chromosomal abnormalities.
On the basis of end user, the market is classified into diagnostic laboratories and hospitals. In 2016, the diagnostic laboratories segment accounted for the largest share of the market. Growth in this end-user segment can be attributed to the rising incidence of chromosomal abnormalities and increasing initiatives by companies to provide advanced equipment to diagnostic laboratories.
North America commanded the largest share of the global market in 2016. Asia is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth in the Asian market is attributed to increasing disposable income, rising healthcare infrastructure, rising awareness programs and conferences, and increasing focus of market players in this region. Some prominent markets in Asia include China, India, and Japan.
