Key Drivers Stimulating Newborn Screening Industry Expansion

Surging Cases of Infant Disorders are Stimulating Newborn Screening Demand

The prevalence of infant diseases has multiplied in recent years, causing a sharp incline in mortality rates. Hearing impairment and metabolic and hormonal disorders are the most common conditions affecting newborns across prominent regions and are mostly treatable.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), birth defects affect one in every 33 babies, or 3% of all infants, across the United States. Furthermore, the Indian Academy of Paediatrics (IAP) estimates that congenital hearing loss impacts 30 per 100,000 children.

Consequently, demand for effective diagnostic solutions has compounded, prompting key healthcare providers to invest in advanced newborn screening approaches, generating increased demand.

Newborn Screening Providers are Foraying into Emerging Markets

Major newborn screening providers are looking to capitalize on the ever-brimming opportunities present across three major emerging markets: China, India, and Brazil, amid the exponentially high birth rates in these countries.

According to estimates, India records 25 billion births every year, or nearly one-fifth of the global annual childbirths. The high birth rate and the availability of newborn screening in public hospitals indicate a strong demand for market products and consumables.

Moreover, China has achieved significant progress in newborn screening, with the overall uptake rate for congenital hypothyroidism and phenylketonuria screening surpassing 90% in 2021.

Key Challenges to Newborn Screening Industry Expansion

Cost-effective Technology to Act as a Key Restraint in Global Expansion

The high cost of automation technology linked with the strong rivalry presented by small companies is a key market dispute that needs to be overcome by key market players to cultivate in the market. Besides, the shortage of integrated newborn screening policies & dealings and the availability of refurbished products is expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent during the forecast period.
