The global carrier screening market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020.

Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 10% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Carrier screening is a genetic testing technique used for the identification abnormal genes in fetuses that can cause autosomal recessive diseases. It is a predictive and pre-symptomatic testing solution used by pregnant individuals and couples to analyze the risks of their child inheriting genetic disorders from the parents. It involves testing a sample of saliva, blood or cheek tissue to detect the presence of an abnormal gene for disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia and Tay-Sachs disease. These samples are screened through molecular and biochemical processes based on deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and microarray technologies. They are used for expanded, customized panel, predesigned panel and targeted disease carrier screening for various pulmonary, hematological and neurological disorders.

Carrier Screening Market Trends:
The increasing prevalence of fetal chromosomal abnormalities and genetic disorders across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the rising consciousness among the masses regarding the benefits of early detection and diagnosis of diseases is providing a thrust to the market growth. In line with this, molecular screening tests are widely conducted to identify DNA mutations in the genetic codes and detect the mutations that can cause heart defects, pre-leukemia, hearing defects and down syndrome. Carrier screening also aids in providing adequate prenatal and reproductive care, which facilitates the proper management of heritable diseases. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques for genetic disease screening, are also favoring the market growth. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the field of biotechnology and bioinformatics, along with significant growth in the medical infrastructure, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
