DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h7vwq8/global_prenatal) has announced the addition of the "Global Prenatal and Newborn Genetic Testing Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Global Prenatal and Newborn Genetic Testing market to grow at a CAGR of 31.91% over the period 2014-2019
Prenatal and newborn genetic testing involves genetic testing before and after birth. Prenatal testing helps detect changes in the fetus before birth. It can reduce a couple's uncertainty or help them decide whether to abort a pregnancy in case of conditions such as Down syndrome, trisomy 18, or an open neural tube defect. The procedure includes two blood tests: one in the first trimester and the next in the second trimester. On the other hand, newborn genetic testing is done just after birth to identify genetic disorders.
One key trend emerging in this market is the launch of new tests. For instance, in 2014, Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings launched the informaSeq Prenatal Test. In the same year, Sequenom launched the VisibiliT laboratory-developed test in international markets.
According to the report, one of the major drivers of the market is the growing incidence of fetal health-related abnormalities such as Down syndrome, Edward syndrome, neural tube defects, sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, Tay-Sachs disease, spina bifida, cystic fibrosis, cleft palate, muscular dystrophy, and fragile X syndrome.
Further, the report states that a decrease in fertility rates worldwide is one of the main challenges that the market faces. This has led to a decline in the number of pregnancies, resulting in a reduction in the demand for prenatal and newborn testing
