Preeclampsia, a rapidly progressive disorder 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 the acceleration of the maternal & perinatal morbidity and mortality rate 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. For instance, according to the Preeclampsia Foundation, it has been estimated that pregnancy-induced hypertension is responsible for causing 76,000 maternal and 500,000 infant deaths each year globally.
The rapid rise in the prevalence of preeclampsia worldwide and the need to protect life are likely to boost the demand for diagnostic tools in the forthcoming years. According to the Preeclampsia Foundation, over 10 billion women around the globe develop preeclampsia every year and around 2.5 billion preterm births are caused by preeclampsia annually. Many players are focusing on strategic collaborations & partnerships for the development of innovative blood tests to detect biomarkers indicating preeclampsia. It is augmented to fuel the toxemia diagnosis market growth during the coming years. The growing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle and the increasing economic burden of preeclampsia around the globe are likely to elevate the need for effective diagnostics for the detection of early onset of preeclampsia.
Baby Boom and Overlapping Symptoms of Preeclampsia and COVID-19 in Pregnant Women to Drive Growth
The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented demand on our healthcare system. The emergence of COVID-19 cases has created global worries related to the elderly, children, and pregnant women. A significant increase in the preeclampsia testing has been witnessed during these days attributable to the rising number of pregnancies during lockdown, delayed or cancelled abortion cases due to the unavailability of midwives or healthcare facilities, and high risks associated with the incidence of preeclampsia among pregnant women positive for COVID-19.
According to a survey by UNICEF, the lockdown will lead to 7 million unwanted pregnancies globally. Moreover, there is an increased diagnostic dilemma associated with the existing COVID-19 cases and preeclampsia due to the presence of proteinuria found in both conditions. Moreover, a positive government support in the form of amendments of guidelines to handle prenatal cases and management of preeclampsia and to ensure availability of the healthcare facilities despite load on them will drive the demand for preeclampsia screening in the year 2020.

Growing Preference for Blood Tests Owing to its Accuracy and Launch of Novel Immunoassays
Preeclampsia is a serious condition affecting pregnant woman. Blood tests are getting more popular than urine tests with advancements is the technology, increased availability of the test kits for detection of preeclampsia biomarkers, and growing affordability for high cost blood tests.
For instance, in June 2019, NHS England approved two blood test products named Elecsys sFlt-1 and PlGF immunoassays of F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. under the ‘Innovation and Technology Payment’ program. Through this, NHS plans to implement the usage of the ground-breaking innovative products within hospitals in Europe and further enhance the accessibility of novel diagnostic tools for preeclampsia among the healthcare professionals for the detection of pregnancy-induced hypertension. Thus, growing preference for blood tests has been witnessed in this market.
Growing Prevalence of Preeclampsia Expected to Propel Demand for Novel Tests
A rapid rise in the prevalence of preeclampsia across the globe is one of the major factors that is likely to boost the demand for diagnostic tools for the condition in the coming years. Preeclampsia is affecting the health of both mothers and neonates in the developed, as well as emerging nations. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the incidence rate of preeclampsia is seven times higher in the developing countries, as compared to the developed countries. As per a report published by the BMC journal, the prevalence of preeclampsia in the developing countries ranges from 1.8% to 16.7% and affects around 10% of pregnant women in Africa, which is remarkably higher than the global average prevalence of around 2%.
The rising maternal & perinatal mortality and morbidity rate is projected to increase the demand for the early diagnosis of preeclampsia among pregnant women. According to the British Charity Action on Pre-eclampsia (APEC), annually, 1000 babies die from preeclampsia and around seven mothers die each year due to complications associated with preeclampsia in the U.K.
Increased New Product Launches to Drive Market Growth
The rising incidence of preeclampsia has led to an increasing medical treatment cost among women with the condition and their newborns. For instance, according to a research report published by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG), the aggregated cost of maternal healthcare and neonates born to mothers with preeclampsia was about one-third of the total U.S. healthcare costs of women living with preeclampsia.
Combined with this, several key players engaged in preeclampsia testing are offering more effective diagnostics through strategic partnerships between them and with many other research organizations. For instance, in February 2019, Diabetomics, Inc. launched Lumella, the first rapid, point-of-care test for preeclampsia assessment in India. Lumella provides an accurate estimation of protein biomarker, Glycosylated Fibronectin (GlyFN) present in pregnant women with preeclampsia.
An increasing knowledge about the signs & symptoms associated with preeclampsia among pregnant mothers and the rising awareness about the effective screening tools for the condition among the healthcare providers are likely to boost the preeclampsia testing market growth at a rapid rate in the coming years.
Lack of awareness about the preeclampsia disease and available diagnostic tools in developing regions
A single elevated increase in the blood pressure does not effectively diagnose the preeclampsia in pregnant women. Despite the growing prevalence of preeclampsia many pregnant women across the globe lacks the knowledge about the term preeclampsia and the complications associated with it. Moreover, women who develop preeclampsia are not aware of this life‐threatening condition until late in their pregnancy when symptoms such as high blood pressure have already manifested.
Thus, despite high prevalence of the disease, the limited awareness about the disease restricts the market growth.
Ability to Effectively Detect Biomarkers Will Drive Growth of Blood Tests Segment
Based on the test type, the market segments include blood tests and urine analysis. Among them, the blood tests segment held the largest preeclampsia diagnostics market share in the year 2019. It is projected to expand at a considerably high CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributable to the advantages offered by blood tests in effectively detecting the biomarkers that are responsible for preeclampsia. Many organizations are adopting the usage of blood tests for the detection of preeclampsia, which can further fuel the demand for more blood screening tests for the same in the near future.
Urine analysis through reagent strips is a highly preferred method of preliminary analysis of preeclampsia in the market. These urine tests are simple to use and are non-invasive point-of-care paper tests that are used for the measurement of misfolded proteins in the urine of pregnant mothers. For instance, February 2015, researchers at Ohio State and Nationwide Children’s Hospital have developed the Congo Red Dot (CRD) diagnostic test. Such innovations in urine tests are likely to accelerate the growth of this segment in the preeclampsia testing market in the forthcoming years.
