Market Overview

Prenatal testing is a critical set of procedures during pregnancy in which screening tests detect the risk of possible health issues in the baby and a diagnosis test which affirms its presence. Prenatal tests are the routine tests with non-invasive screening and invasive procedures for the definitive prenatal diagnosis.

In modern perinatology there are many challenges such as chromosomal abnormalities, congenital heart conditions, and malformed kidneys and therefore to overcome the risks during prenatal pregnancy testing is conducted. There are different types of prenatal tests which can be categorized as the first trimester, second trimester, and third-trimester screening and diagnostic tests.

These tests are scheduled according to the days during pregnancy such as nine weeks to thirteen weeks and fourteen to eighteen weeks. Rapid evolving area of pregnancy care has led to the development of new and upgraded screening methods and diagnosis tests. Companies are more focusing on developing tests by a non-invasive approach to aid in detecting of increased number of abnormalities, allowing physicians to charge less.  

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2012 the U.S. the rate of perinatal mortality was stable, stillbirth affects about 1% of all pregnancies and each year about 24,000 babies are stillborn. Medical care during pregnancy has improved over past decades but some issues regarding prenatal care are unchanged such as the rate of early stillbirth has remained about the same over time.

Creating awareness among countries about prenatal testing will aid in lowering the number of prenatal disorders shortly.
