Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market : North America is the Largest Market for Assay Kits & Reagents Segments

Non Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market

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.
