DUBLIN, September 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 17.44% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: Increase in partnerships and collaborations will be a challenge for the market. Vendors enter into partnerships and collaborations to extend their product offerings, increase their market shares, and expand their operations. These partnerships and collaborations help vendors enhance their R&D capabilities for manufacturing innovative devices that meet consumer needs. For instance, in 2015, Human Longevity entered into a partnership with Roche Diagnostics to conduct whole-genome sequencing of Roche Diagnostics' subsidiary Genentech's de-identified samples.
The partnership helped Roche Diagnostics analyze patient samples based on precise genetic categories and discover new diagnostics and targeted therapies. In 2011, Natera formed a partnership with DNA Diagnostics Center to enter the market. These partnerships and collaborative activities are accelerating drug discovery efforts, which will lead to the development of new therapies to detect chromosomal abnormalities in neonates.
According to the report, the number of neonates with chromosomal disorders is on the rise worldwide due to rapid urbanization, child-bearing at an advanced maternal age, pollution, and increased consumption of alcohol consumption. This factor will be a key driver for market growth. A few conventional procedures such as chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis that help detect chromosomal defects in developing fetuses are available in the market.
However, these tests have high chances of causing miscarriage, restricting people from undergoing them. This unmet need led to the development of new advanced prenatal tests that are invasive and have no risks of miscarriage. Vendors are also developing NIPTs that have high accuracy result and lower side effects for use in hospitals and nursing homes.
