The global prenatal testing and newborn screening market is expected to decline from $4.39 billion in 2019 to $4.18 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -4.79%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to deferred care in order to avoid visiting hospitals, which resulted in reduced patient volume. The market is then expected to recover and reach $6.04 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 13.09%.
