Non Invasive Prenatal Testing Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2028

Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Non Invasive Prenatal Testing market size was valued at US$ 2.90 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 11.05% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The increasing incidence of chromosomal abnormalities coupled with growing product usage in new applications is driving the organic revenue growth in the market. Furthermore, advancements in the existing tests in terms of advanced functions, improved chemistry, and bioinformatics analysis are anticipated to spur market growth. Improving reimbursement policies for average and low-risk pregnancies is also one of the key driving factors of the market. In December 2020, Natera announced expanded coverage from the largest U.S. Health Plan, Aetna, for its non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) to all pregnancies.

Report Highlights

The market for non-invasive prenatal testing for high- and average-risk pregnancies held the largest share of over 90% in 2020 due to the high adoption of these tests in high-risk cases in patients aged 35 years and above. The presence of favorable payer reimbursement in this segment coupled with rising awareness about the prevention of chromosomal anomalies, such as Down syndrome, has also contributed to the large share of this segment.

The 13 to 24 weeks gestation period segment accounted for the highest revenue share of over 45% in 2020. This can be attributed to the fact that maximum non-invasive prenatal diagnosis is carried out in the second trimester of the pregnancy, and these tests also cover major complementary tests, such as ultrasound and serum screening for alpha-fetoprotein.

Several companies focus on the analysis of cffDNA in a sample of maternal blood collected in the first trimester to develop a more accurate and reliable NIPT. As a significantly fewer number of tests is carried out in a period of 25-36 weeks, the segment did not account for much revenue share. However, as fetal DNA can be detected from the 4th week of gestation, it can only be considered reliable post 7 weeks.

Moreover, fetal DNA concentration goes on increasing in the maternal blood during the gestation period, reaching 80 fetal genomes per mil blood in the third trimester from just 16 in the first trimester, which makes tests conducted in this trimester also highly reliable. However other non-invasive tests are prominent in this period, such as ultrasound and nonstress tests, for monitoring normal growth & response of the fetus.

The cell-free DNA-based NIPT market is estimated to generate the highest revenue share of 43.6% in 2020. Cell-free DNA is increasingly being employed in predicting the risk of genetic conditions in prenatal care through different genetic analyses. Several research studies are being carried out to further advance the use of tests offered through this segment.

For instance, a research study by Togneri et al. published in December 2019 implemented and validated cell-free DNA-based NIPT in the National Health Service (NHS) regional genetics laboratory. The researchers concluded that cfDNA-based NIPT can be conducted as a private test in patients with low risk of common trisomy or with other indications.

Ultrasound detection is deployed as complementary to the Cell-free DNA-based NIPT test, resulting in the lower share of this segment in the current market. However, the test provides a basis for further testing of the fetus for the identification of abnormalities. The recent advancements in technology and 3D-4D imaging have improved real-time monitoring, safety, and efficiency of the test, which is further expected to drive the growth of the segment.

However, several end users experience difficulty in result interpretation while using NGS technology. This, in turn, has created opportunities for array-based tests. Also, better efficiency of Chromosomal Microarray Analysis (CMA) than conventional karyotyping boosts revenue in this segment.

Consumables & reagents accounted for the largest revenue share of over 76% in 2020 owing to the high adoption of NGS-based prenatal test that requires various reagents and assays to run sequencing process. Also, the presence of a substantial number of suppliers that offer solutions to isolate cell-free DNA is driving the segment growth.

On the other hand, the instruments segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 owing to continuous efforts undertaken by instrument manufacturers to develop advanced platforms. PerkinElmer, Inc. offers Vanadis NIPT System—an automated instrument to overcome the limitations associated with NIPT test cost, complexity, and capacity of other NIPT technologies for screening of aneuploidy.

Diagnostic laboratories dominated the market with a revenue share of 59% in 2020. The key developers, such as Illumina, are outsourcing their sample processing to Illumina CLIA labs when in-house facilities are not sufficient. Also, the laboratories that are engaged in conducting NIPT tests across the U.S. are operating in compliance with quality-assurance regulations to safeguard the test quality and reproducibility.

Well-drafted laboratory standards for NIPT in developed regions coupled with a high volume of NIPT tests conducted in diagnostic laboratories have also contributed to the largest revenue share of this segment. In addition, some facilities also outsource testing services to diagnostic laboratories, thereby driving the segment growth.

A judgment was issued by the U.K. High Court of Justice, Chancery Division, Patents Court stating that Harmony cell-free, DNA-based NIPT developed by Ariosa infringes the European patent issued by Illumina, assuring the validity of patent claims. Such activities are propelling revenue growth in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market during the forecast period. The presence of companies, such as BGI in China, which is a prominent entity in the NIPT market, is expected to boost the market growth.
