Various countries such as the Netherlands are implementing policies to fully reimburse NIPT in the second trimester, thereby resulting in the higher adoption of these tests. In addition, other countries such as Germany plan to reimburse noninvasive prenatal tests for chromosomal disorders such as down syndrome.

 U.S. non invasive prenatal testing market size, by method, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The market was slightly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Several manufacturing companies maintained regular communication with the U.S. FDA to keep themselves informed of any supply chain disruptions. In addition, several research studies were conducted to estimate the commercial impact of COVID-19. According to a SeraCare report, IVD developers and clinical testing facilities collaborated with research organizations to determine the effects of COVID-19 infection on pregnancy and congenital debilities in infants and the requirement for NIPT during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The demand for NIPT is increasing in various countries owing to various factors such as an increasing number of doctors choosing advanced genetic testing for high-risk pregnancies, a desire to delay pregnancy, and more pregnancy-related problems in the third- or second trimester. 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, noninvasive, and safe. NIPT, through the use of cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) that circulates in the mother’s blood, can be used for the detection of commonly occurring trisomies in the fetus such as turner syndrome, down syndrome, fetal rhesus D status, and sex chromosome disorders and for determination of fetal sex.

The market is highly saturated with existing key players operating in the NIPT market. Companies are forming partnerships and collaborations to maintain a stable position in the market. For instance, in June 2021, Illumina entered into a strategic collaboration with Next Generation Genomic to introduce a CE-IVD, NGS-based NIPT test, VeriSeq NIPT Solution v2 in Thailand. With this initiative, Illumina would have greater patient access to NIPT's next-generation sequencing.

Improvements and advancements in existing products are currently driving the market. For instance, in April 2020, Natera announced the expansion of coverage for its product Panorama. This product will now cater to all pregnant women irrespective of their age and conditions.  Introduction of innovative products is likely to have a positive impact on the market. Increase in reimbursement coverage for all newly introduced products is expected to boost product adoption.

However, recent advancements in technology and 3D-4D imaging have improved real-time monitoring, safety, and efficiency of the test, which is further expected to propel the segment growth. For instance, in May 2022, General Electric Company (GE Healthcare) invested around USD 50 million in Pulsenmore, an Israeli startup. This allows expectant parents to chart their pregnancies at home and perform self-scans.

Application Insights

Trisomy led the market with a share of over 53.4% in 2022 owing to the rising incidence of chromosomal abnormalities. India has a heavy burden of genetic diseases. Various studies suggested that chromosomal abnormalities are found with a frequency of 1 in 166 newborns in the country, while trisomy 21 (down syndrome) has a high incidence rate of 1 in 800 births, resulting in the birth of 32,000 newborns with down syndrome every year.

Currently, technological advancements have expanded the range of testing to whole genome sequencing, and they can detect many additional chromosomal anomalies, such as microdeletions and sex chromosomal abnormalities. For instance, Panorama prenatal test by Natera Inc. helps detect sex chromosomal abnormalities, microdeletions, and triploidy. In addition, a 2021 NCBI article on a study based on 13,607 cases concluded that NGS NTP offers high sensitivities and specificities of more than 98.89%, and the failure rate is less than 0.72% in aneuploidy conditions such as trisomy 21, trisomy 18, trisomy 21 + 13, trisomy 13, and monosomy X.
