Report Overview

The global newborn screening market size was valued at USD 789.35 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.54% from 2023 to 2030.The rising neonatal population, increasing cases of congenital diseases in newborns, growing consumer awareness, and favorable initiatives & support from various governments organizing several programs & legislations are factors estimated to propel market growth over the forecast period. In addition, technological advancements in screening methodologies are also expected to boost the market.

U.S. newborn screening Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The extensively growing prevalence of congenital diseases in newborns is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth for newborn screening. According to data published by the WHO in February 2023, an estimated 240,000 newborns die within 28 days of birth each year globally due to congenital diseases. Congenital disorders are further responsible for an estimated 170,000 child deaths aged between 1 month and 5 years. In addition, according to information from Indian Pediatrics, congenital hypothyroidism occurs in 2.1 out of every 1,000 infants in India, and the prevalence of inborn metabolic abnormalities ranges from 2-7.8%. Such substantial occurrence of congenital diseases amongst newborns is likely to increase the adoption of tests, which will eventually accelerate market growth by 2030.

In addition, the introduction of government programs and legislation is also expected to offer a favorable environment for the newborn screening industry growth. For instance, in June 2022, the government of Manitoba announced the expansion of its newborn screening program with an aim to extend screening for spinal muscular atrophy along with other diseases. A majority of the nations have statutes for newborn screening, wherein funding for the program, various conditions requiring screening, and exemptions are clearly stated. For instance, the Manitoba government increased its budget by USD 4.2 million to deal with the additional workload of diagnosis.

The demand for newborn screening procedures is expected to be influenced by the introduction of new technologies and availability of treatment options enabling the diagnosis of about 29 possible disorders, including galactosemia (GS), phenylketonuria (PKU), hearing disorders, and congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in neonates. In March 2023, a group of scientists at the Division of Laboratory Sciences, CDC, announced the introduction of improved tests that offer advanced technology for the diagnosis of genetic diseases.

Technology Insights

In 2022, the tandem mass spectrometry segment dominated the market for newborn screening with 24.5% of the revenue share, owing to its cost-effectiveness, higher applicability, and technological upgrades. The tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) segment is also likely to expand at a substantial CAGR due to its high efficiency in diagnosing an array of conditions in a single procedure. Furthermore, the development of market players with respect to new products is also expected to accelerate segment growth by 2030. For instance, in April 2023, Waters Corporation announced the launch of its new Xevo TQ Absolute IVD Mass Spectrometer for clinical applications.

The electrophoresis segment is expected to witness significant demand at 8.09% CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is anticipated due to the rising demand for early detection techniques. The growing number of collaborations amongst market players are expected to accelerate segment growth. For instance, in October 2022, CMP Scientific Corp. signed a co-marketing agreement with Agilent for its advanced electrophoresis system.

Test Type Insights

Dry blood spot tests dominated the overall newborn screening market, accounting for over 45.9% of the revenue share in 2022. Moreover, the segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The DBS test is used for the detection of over 50 conditions that are associated with newborn screening. The growing number of initiatives by government authorities are also projected to accelerate segment growth during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2022, the U.K.-based Oxford University announced the launch of its first pilot study for the diagnosis of spinal muscular atrophy.

The hearing screen segment is expected to register a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing prevalence of hearing conditions in newborns is estimated to accelerate segment growth during the forecast period. According to a study published by the University of Manchester in 2023, one in 1000 newborn babies suffer from hearing conditions in the U.K.

Product Insights

The instruments segment held the dominant share of 75.91% in the market for newborn screening in 2022 and is expected to advance at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growing number of newborn screening procedures, rising awareness about early disease detection, and increasing investments for newborn screening are estimated to drive the instrument segment during the forecast period. In March 2023, GC Labs announced the launch of its new test for diagnosis of Inborn Errors of Metabolism (IEM) amongst newborns with the incorporation of improved disease detection methods.

Global newborn screening Market share and size, 2022

The reagent segment is projected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing demand for newborn screening, coupled with growing emphasis on early disease diagnosis amongst newborns, especially in developing countries is offering a lucrative environment for segment growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share in the market for newborn screening in 2022, accounting for around 32.90% of the revenue share. Factors such as improving infrastructure and healthcare plans and the availability of new opportunities for expansion are expected to play a major role in driving industry demand over the forecast period. Moreover, owing to the high population density, higher birth rate, and soaring prevalence of congenital diseases, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for newborn screening techniques.

newborn screening Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

North America is estimated to expand at a considerable CAGR over the coming years, owing to the growing prevalence of congenital disorders and enforced testing in all the states of the U.S., which are followed diligently. Some of the programs include the Newborn Screening Program, Texas; the California Newborn Screening Program; and the New York State Newborn Screening Program.
