Carrier Screening Market Research, 2031

The global carrier screening market size was valued at $1.9 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $6.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 13.8% from 2022 to 2031. Carrier screening is a type of genetic test that can tell if the person carries a gene for certain genetic disorders. It allows us to find out the chances of having a child with a genetic disorder if it is done before or during pregnancy. Carrier screening involves testing a sample of blood, saliva, or tissue from the inside of the cheek. Test results can be negative which means to not have the gene or positive which means to have the gene. Typically, the partner who is most likely to be a carrier is tested first. If test results show that the first partner is not a carrier, then no additional testing is needed. If test results show that the first partner is a carrier, the other partner is tested.

Carrier Screening Market

Historical overview

The market has been analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2021 to 2031. The carrier screening market witnessed growth at a CAGR of around 13.8% from 2022 to 2031. Most of the growth during this period was from North America owing to the increase in the adoption of genetic screening, the rise in incidences of genetic diseases among the population, as well as the well-established presence of domestic market players in the region.

Market dynamics

Growth & innovations in the diagnostic and biotechnology industry for the adoption of carrier screening technology owing to a massive pool of genetic diseases incidences which creates an opportunity for the carrier screening market size. The rise in the launch of new tests made up of advanced technology by various key players across the globe is set to affect market growth positively. For instance, in June 2019, QIAGEN announced the launch of a novel Sample to Insight solution for translational and clinical research into genetic drivers of rare and inherited diseases. The new QIAseq Expanded Carrier Screening Panel provides the identification of targets, genes, and other regions of interest responsible for more than 200 disease indications. The growth of the carrier screening market share is also expected to be driven by the high potential for adoption of the technology in developing countries due to an increase in the prevalence of genetic disorders, an increase in practice to diagnose people for genetic carriers, and a surge in demand for carrier screening. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to the rise in demand for enhanced diagnostics technologies, significant investments by the government to improve diagnostic testing and the development of a strong foothold of biotechnological industries in emerging countries. In addition, the cost-effectiveness of the carrier screening tests may also decide the adoption of the tests. For instance, according to the data by MedlinePlus that was updated on July 2021, the cost of genetic testing can range from under $100 to more than $2,000 in the U.S., depending on the nature and complexity of the test. The cost increases if more than one test is necessary or if multiple family members must be tested to obtain a meaningful result. This cost may vary by state for newborn screening. Some states cover part of the total cost, but most charge a fee of $30 to $150 per infant. Hence, the cost-effectiveness factor for carrier screening is attributed to further support the market growth. The demand for carrier screening is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the market. Factors such as the rise in the adoption of genetic screening among couples and an increase in awareness of genetic disease risk further drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, a rise in consumer awareness related to preventive healthcare of newborns boosts the adoption of carrier screening. Moreover, an increase in research activities by manufacturers for developing innovative solutions in carrier screening technology is expected to fuel their adoption in the near future.

However, the stringent regulations for the approval of carrier screening tests and ethical concerns about carrier screening among the population are hampering the market growth. Moreover, the implementation barriers like lack of standardization among different laboratories, pre-and post-test follow-up management, and provider misperceptions are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.

Analyst Review

The number of individuals who could benefit from carrier screening is substantial because roughly 2 million women give birth to their first child each year in the U.S. The disorders for which testing is recommended vary based on several different patient-specific factors. For instance, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that screening for cystic fibrosis be offered to all women of reproductive age and that testing be performed for additional disorders if indicated by family history, partner’s carrier status, or ethnicity. 
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the analysis period, owing to the increase in the research and development expenditure for the development of new products that increases the adoption rate of carrier screening, increase in awareness about the polymer chain reaction applications for increasing the adoption of technology in the laboratories and increase in government support on research activities and other related trends adopted by the market players.
