Gestation Period Insights

The 13-24 weeks segment held the largest share of over 35.5% in 2021 owing to the maximum number of tests being carried out during this phase of pregnancy. Complementary application of ultrasound with alpha-fetoprotein screening and non-invasive prenatal testing after 12 weeks of pregnancy is expected to fuel the growth of this segment. Moreover, tests carried out in quad screening, such as Unconjugated Estriol (EU), Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP), inhibin A, and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is contributing to the revenue generation for this segment.

The 0 to 12 weeks gestation period segment accounted for a considerable revenue share in 2021 owing to the availability of a large number of products in the market. The first-trimester aneuploidy screening and maternal-fetal DNA screening carried out during this period result in significant revenue generation in this segment. In addition, first-trimester risk screening is advantageous over other trimesters as the combined data from biochemistry and sonography can be used to detect genetic alterations with an accuracy level of 91% to 96%.

Pregnancy Risk Insights

The high and average risk segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 75.8% in 2021. This can be attributed to the growing adoption of these tests in high-risk cases and pregnancies in women 35 years and above. Moreover, with an increase in the number of pregnancies over the age of 35 years, the risk of abnormalities also significantly rises, which is anticipated to impel the demand for prenatal tests in the forecast period.

The low-risk segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2022 to 2030. Support from the government, such as budget assignment for average-risk pregnancies, is expected to be a favorable factor for growth. For instance, according to the NCBI in 2019, testing in average-risk pregnancies allowed detection of a higher number of affected cases, resulting in an additional budget of USD 35 million for this group in Ontario.

Ultrasound detection is deployed as complementary to the Cell-free DNA-based NIPT test, resulting in a lower share of this segment. However, recent advancements in technology and 3D-4D imaging have improved real-time monitoring, safety, and efficiency of the test, which is further expected to propel the segment growth. For instance, in May 2022, General Electric Company (GE Healthcare) invested around USD 50 million in Pulsenmore, an Israeli startup. This allows expectant parents to chart their pregnancies at home and perform self-scans.

Application Insights

Trisomy led the market with a share of over 45.6% in 2021 owing to the rising incidence of chromosomal abnormalities. India has a heavy burden of genetic diseases. Various studies suggested that chromosomal abnormalities are found with a frequency of 1 in 166 newborns in the country, while trisomy 21 (down syndrome) has a high incidence rate of 1 in 800 births, resulting in the birth of 32,000 newborns with down syndrome every year.

Currently, technological advancements have expanded the range of testing to whole genome sequencing, and they can detect many additional chromosomal anomalies, such as microdeletions and sex chromosomal abnormalities. For instance, Panorama prenatal test by Natera Inc. helps detect sex chromosomal abnormalities, microdeletions, and triploidy. In addition, a 2021 NCBI article on a study based on 13,607 cases concluded that NGS NTP offers high sensitivities and specificities of more than 98.89%, and the failure rate is less than 0.72% in aneuploidy conditions such as trisomy 21, trisomy 18, trisomy 21 + 13, trisomy 13, and monosomy X.

Product Insights

The consumables and reagents segment dominated the market with a share of over 70.2% in 2021 owing to the presence of major players offering a wide range of consumables and reagents for NIPT. For instance, the CE-marked Harmony IVD Kit offered by Roche is an extensively studied and validated NIPT test and has been employed to screen more than 1.8 million pregnancies. The Harmony test is highly efficient and offers less than a 0.1% false-positive rate for trisomies 13, 18, and 21.

The instruments segment is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period 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 cost, complexity, and capacity of other NIPT technologies for screening of aneuploidy.
