Non-invasive Prenatal Testing Market Industry Insights by Technology & End-use

Posted by Ryan Shaw on February 1st, 2021

The global Non Invasive Prenatal Testing Market size is anticipated to reach USD 6.5 billion by 2028 registering a CAGR of 10.9%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. High adoption and demand for early non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) coupled with improvements in reimbursement scenario are among the factors driving the market.

The use of invasive techniques of prenatal testing, such as chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis, can lead to issues, such as miscarriage. This has led to a decline in the use of these procedures and high demand for tests that are more efficient, non-invasive, and safe. Furthermore, non-invasive fetal tests have a lower failure and false-positive rate, which has resulted in a considerable increase in uptake of non-invasive tests in the last few years.

The non-invasive prenatal testing market is highly saturated with the existing key players. Companies are forming partnerships and collaborations to maintain a stable position in the market. For instance, in August 2020, Eurofins Scientific announced an agreement with Noritsu Koki Co., Ltd. for the acquisition of GeneTech Inc., one of the pioneering NIPT developers in Japan. With this acquisition, Eurofins Scientific is set to strengthen its presence in the Japanese NIPT market.
