The global preeclampsia diagnostics market size was valued at USD 1.03 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 1.07 billion in 2022 to USD 1.24 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.2% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with preeclampsia diagnostics experiencing higher-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a higher growth of 7.8% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Preeclampsia, also known as toxemia, is a rapidly progressive disorder that is characterized by elevated blood pressure and excessive protein in the urine of pregnant women. It is one of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, which is responsible for accelerating the maternal & perinatal morbidity and mortality rate among women across the developed and emerging nations. If not diagnosed at an early stage, it could lead to preterm birth and other complications such as seizure or eclampsia, failure of organs, and death.

The preeclampsia diagnostics market growth is attributed to the rapid rise in the prevalence of this disease and the need to protect the life of the mother and the baby. Moreover, many players are focusing on strategic collaborations & partnerships to develop innovative blood tests to detect biomarkers indicating the disease, which is expected to propel the demand for a diagnosis during the forecast period.

  • For instance, in June 2020, PerkinElmer Inc. announced the launch of the DELFIA Xpress sFlt-1 kit. The product enables short-term prediction of preeclampsia and aids in diagnosis in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, together with the previously launched DELFIA Xpress PlGF 1-2-3 assay.


COVID-19 Positively Impacted the Market Revenue Due to Rising Preeclampsia Disorders

The coronavirus pandemic resulted in an unprecedented demand on our healthcare system. The emergence of COVID-19 cases created global worries related to the elderly, children, and pregnant women. A significant increase in preeclampsia diagnostics has been witnessed during these days, which is attributable to the rising number of pregnancies during the lockdown, delayed or canceled abortion cases due to the unavailability of midwives or healthcare facilities, and high risks associated with the incidence of this disease among pregnant women positive for COVID-19.

According to a United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) survey, the lockdown was expected to lead to 7 million unwanted pregnancies globally. Moreover, there is an increased diagnostic dilemma associated with the existing COVID-19 cases and preeclampsia diagnostics due to the presence of proteinuria found in both conditions. Moreover, positive government support in the form of amendments to guidelines to handle prenatal cases and manage this disease by ensuring the availability of the healthcare facilities increased the demand for toxemia screening in 2020.

The market players witnessed an increase in revenue generated during 2020. For instance, PerkinElmer Inc., a leader in the market, witnessed an increase of 31.2% in its revenue in 2020 to reach USD 3,782.8 million. The expansion of its customer base for diagnosis of toxemia is one of the reasons for the company's growth in revenue.

Technological Advancements in Preeclampsia Diagnostics to Boost Market Growth

  • The increasing incidence of preeclampsia has created awareness regarding its diagnosis, and various government regulatory bodies are initiating programs under which they are approving various advanced tests.

    • For instance, in 2019, the perinatal physician researchers from the Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital developed an affordable, non-invasive Congo Red Test (CRD). This urine test rapidly detects the disease at a point of care.

  • Furthermore, Congo Red Test (CRD) has been designed to measure misfolded proteins in the urine of pregnant women likely to develop toxemia. It is a fast test that generates results in just three minutes.

Such advent of technologically-advanced products for the diagnosing of toxemia is driving the overall market growth.


Increasing Women Population Suffering from Preeclampsia to Propel Novel Tests’ Demand

Preeclampsia, one of the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, is responsible for increasing the maternal & perinatal morbidity and mortality rate among pregnant women across the globe. The disease is a serious multi-system complication of pregnancy, with prevalence increasing at a significant rate in developed countries.

  • For instance, according to the research published by NCBI in July 2021, the prevalence of preeclampsia in France was found to be 8.5% among pregnant women.

Growing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle leading to high incidences of the disease and increasing awareness among healthcare providers & pregnant women population are likely to surge the demand for early screening of this disease, which can elevate the growth of the market in the coming years.

Growing Focus on the Development of Innovative Preeclampsia Diagnostic Products to Drive Market

Early diagnosis of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy has always been a challenge. The rise in the incidence rate of preeclampsia and the growing demand for reducing the mortality rates of mothers and newborns increased the opportunity for market players to develop an innovative instrument for preeclampsia diagnostics.

The introduction of point-of-care tests for diagnosis of preeclampsia at an earlier stage can aid in avoiding unnecessary hospital admission, which can further reduce the cost burden associated with this disease. As the risk of preterm birth remains a major challenge in the disease, many key players are engaged in strategic partnerships and collaboration to introduce advanced diagnostic products in this market.

The advancements of biomarker tests and rising product launches are likely to drive the market during the forecast period.


Less Awareness about Preeclampsia in Developing Regions to Hamper Market Growth

A single elevated increase in blood pressure does not effectively diagnose preeclampsia in pregnant women. Despite the growing prevalence of this disease, many pregnant women across the globe lack knowledge about the term preeclampsia and its complications.

Moreover, women who develop hypertension during pregnancy are unaware of this life‐threatening condition until late in their pregnancy, when symptoms of high blood pressure have already manifested. Detection of the disorder at this late stage typically leaves the mother with a few options.

This lack of awareness about the signs and symptoms of this disease that can worsen women’s health leads to increased infant death rates.

  • For instance, according to the article published by the Preeclampsia Foundation in May 2020, around 50% of women with toxemia in California lack knowledge regarding the severity of the symptoms associated with the disease.

Such unavailability of preeclampsia diagnostics products, coupled with less awareness about the disease, could limit the adoption of these substitutes during the forecast period.
