Growing Preference for Non – invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) Techniques Over Invasive Methods
How much is the non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) market worth?
Maternal age refers to the age of women at the time of delivery. Advancing maternal age can result in a number of health complications, such as decreased fertility, high blood pressure, and an increase in the risk of miscarriage, stillbirths, and maternal death.
The global non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) market is estimated to reach USD 7.3 billion by 2024 from USD 3.9 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 13.5% during the forecast period. Growth in this market is driven by the high risk of chromosomal abnormalities with increasing maternal age, growing preference for non-invasive techniques over invasive methods, improving reimbursement scenario for NIPT, and increasing awareness of NIPT. However, a dearth of skilled professionals is restraining the growth of this market.
The cfDNA in maternal plasma tests segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
By method, the NIPT products market is segmented into ultrasound detection, biochemical screening tests, and cell-free DNA in maternal plasma tests. The cfDNA in maternal plasma tests segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth of this segment is attributed to technological advancements and increasing company initiatives to develop new products.

The trisomy applications segment accounted for the largest share of the global NIPT market in 2018
Based on application, the non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) market is segmented into trisomy, microdeletion syndrome, and other applications (gender identification and the detection of monogenic disorders, Klinefelter syndrome, and Rhesus (Rh) blood type). In 2018, trisomy was the largest application segment of the NIPT market.
Emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico are expected to offer significant growth opportunities to market players in the coming years. The high growth in these markets can majorly be attributed to the improving healthcare infrastructure, increasing public healthcare expenditure, the presence of a large target patient population, and growing awareness and availability of advanced technologies.

Challenge: Reliability of test results, especially in obese women
NIPT tests can be performed in patients between 10 and 20 weeks of the gestation period. These tests require the extraction of fetal DNA from maternal blood to determine chromosomal abnormalities. The majority of cell-free DNA circulating in maternal blood is of maternal origin, and only 10–15% is of fetal origin.
