Non-invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Driven by the Adoption of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Techniques for Screening is Driving Market Growth

Prenatal genetic tests are predominantly used to test disorders such as aneuploidies in chromosomes 21, 18, 13 and carrier screens. They are gaining momentum in EU due to enhanced assay outcomes through non-invasive methodologies using next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques, increasing number of women choosing to undergo pregnancy at an advanced maternal age (over 35 years) and considerable popularity through social media and e-commerce channels. High level of merger and acquisition activity apart from numerous collaborations with regional clinical labs has supported the participants in marketing their products across the European region.

Moreover, companies are also exploring new avenues to market their product by strategically tying up with IVF clinics, physicians, genetic counsellors and OBGYNs. Partnership with big data companies is anticipated to be the next big leap in the prenatal genetic testing market, thereby providing interpretation of vast volumes of data to increase specificity, sensitivity, and cost of tests. The key business model emerging across the market is the collaboration of key participants with regional private clinical labs as well as public centres and organizations such as NHS to increase the market coverage in Europe.
