Dublin, Aug. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Newborn Screening Market 2019-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for newborn screening is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13.76% over the forecast duration of 2019-2027.

Due to the rise in the pervasiveness of congenital diseases, a large number of newborns are being affected by such conditions, which is a major driver for the newborn screening market. Moreover, government backing for newborn child health and the rising awareness for congenital heart disease in newborns are further pushing the growth of the market significantly.

The increase in the global fertility rate has proven to be beneficial for the growth of the market. Furthermore, newborn screening helps in the early identification and management of affected newborns. Technological advancements in newborn screening and increase in the number of pregnant women with advanced maternal age can be used as opportunities for the growth of the market.

On the flip side, the absence of proper healthcare infrastructure for newborn babies in developing countries and the socio-economic hurdles in the implementation of newborn child screening act as major restraints for the growth of the market. Furthermore, the dearth of skilled professionals in the healthcare industry and maintenance issues of hospital equipment severely limit the growth of the newborn screening market.

Regional Outlook

The global newborn screening market spans across five major regions, namely, Latin America, Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa.

The Asia-Pacific newborn screening market is the leading market globally, with the highest CAGR. In addition, North America's supportive policies further supplement the growth of the newborn screening market in the US and Canada. For instance, the United States Government has mandated the newborn hearing screening among all the territories and 50 states of the United States since 1996, as per the Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (JEHDI), 2016 research.

Further, in 2011, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) added critical congenital heart defects (CCHD) in the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel for all the newborns born in the US. Further, high healthcare and R&D expenditure in the US and Canada also act as drivers for the growth of the newborn screening market in North America.
