Increase in number of preterm births, growth of the medical diagnostics industry in emerging economies in regions such as Asia Pacific, and adoption of latest technologies and techniques to access or diagnose preterm births are projected to augment the global market between 2021 and 2028.
Increase in Preterm Births to Propel Market
Sedentary lifestyle along with several other factors has led to increase in preterm births, which has become a major concern in the past few years. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 15 million babies are born early every year i.e., around 1 in every 10 babies is preterm. Moreover, complications due to premature births result in fatal outcomes in approximately 1 million cases. One of the major causes of such complications is premature rupture of membranes (PROM), which accounts for roughly 30% of all preterm births. The global preterm birth and PROM testing market is expected to be driven by increase in incidence of such complications during the forecast period.
Rise in Demand for Point-of-Care Testing Devices to Present Significant Opportunities
Increase in demand for effective and early diagnosis and reduction in false positive tests for diagnosis of premature births and PROM drive adoption of point-of-care testing devices. Moreover, high adoption of these devices can be attributed to reduced risk of misdiagnosis, ease of usage, and high sensitivity. Point-of-care testing devices have also assisted in reducing the chances of complications due to preterm births by enabling diagnosis at early stages and allowing health care providers to offer immediate care to mother and fetus at early stages of pregnancy.
Lack of Awareness about Preterm Births to Restrain Market
Lack of awareness about preterm births and PROM could lead to longer hospital stays and preventable expenditure from the perspective of patients. Additionally, lack of awareness about availability of latest technologies available for diagnosis of premature births, resulting in delayed diagnosis and treatment is one of the major factors hampering the growth of the market.
Based on test type, the global preterm birth and PROM testing market has been bifurcated into preterm birth tests and PROM tests. The preterm birth tests segment has been classified into pelvic exam, ultrasound, uterine monitoring, and biomarkers. The PROM tests segment has been categorized into nitrazine test, ferning test, pooling, ultrasound, fetal fibronectin test, biomarkers, and others. Increase in the number of preterm births, high incidence of preterm births, rise in the number of specialty clinics, and easy detection of preterm birth through PROM tests are expected to augment the segment. In terms of revenue, the preterm birth tests segment dominated the global preterm birth and PROM testing market. However, availability of other tests in the market is likely to hamper the growth of the segment.
In terms of end-user, the global preterm birth and PROM testing market has been divided into hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, and others. Increase in awareness about specialty treatments is a key driver of the diagnostic laboratories segment. Additionally, surge in demand for preterm diagnostic services and rise in the number of diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound and pelvic examinations for pregnant women are anticipated to propel the segment. The others segment is likely to witness strong growth during the forecast period due to shift of treatment toward nursing homes and specialized clinics.
Asia Pacific Market to Grow at a Rapid Pace
In terms of revenue, the preterm birth and PROM testing market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Increase in awareness about the availability of point-of-care testing devices and rise in technology penetration are expected to boost the demand for these diagnostic techniques.
