Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market

Illumina, Inc. (US) and Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (US) are Leading Players in the Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market

The global non-invasive prenatal testing 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 non-invasive prenatal testing market is highly consolidated in nature with several big and emerging players. Illumina, Inc. (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (US), GE Healthcare (US), BGI (China), Agilent Technologies, Inc. (US), F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. (Switzerland), PerkinElmer Inc. (US), Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (US), Natera, Inc. (US), and Yourgene Health (UK) are some of the key players in the market. These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as new product & service launches & upgrades; expansions; acquisitions; and partnerships, agreements, & collaborations to further expand their presence in the global market.
