Human Fetal Fibronectin Rapid Test offered by Creative Diagnostics would help determining the chances of preterm labor within 20 minutes of the test. At home self-diagnosis also reduces the indirect cost associated with conventional laboratory based preterm birth diagnostic test kits.

Untapped growth prospects for key players in the preterm birth diagnostic test kits market

Preterm diagnostic test kits haven’t penetrated healthcare settings particularly in Asia Pacific, Middle-east, and Africa given their prevalent birth & preterm birth rates. Majority of the patients aren’t aware about preterm birth diagnostic tests. This is true not only for the developing countries but also for a considerable portion of developed countries. Manufacturers are yet to market preterm diagnostic tests and their feasibility methodologically in order to exploit their full market potential.

Majority of the patients who exhibit preterm birth symptoms undergo hospital stay charges which pose an economic burden on the middle-class in developed as well as developing regions. Awareness and proper marketing and advertisement is estimated to help grab incremental revenue opportunities over the forecast period

Middle-east & Africa, Asia Pacific, Latin America account for over 50 % of the annual preterm births. Although, the adoption rates for preterm diagnostic test kits are poor in hospital settings, it poses a great market potential for manufacturers

Marketplace discussions indicate growing adoption of low priced preterm birth diagnostic test kits

Preterm birth diagnostic test kits are anticipated to gain popularity as they provide great benefits for the patient, mother and the baby, minimized hospital expenditure. Ultrasound, clinical examinations, and other tests require not only hospital admission but also high costs associated with hospital admissions. Risk for an unborn baby is high in preterm cases, and preterm birth test kits help in predicting, and avoiding such situations in a short duration of time. The growing popularity has been witnessed in China and Asia Pacific regions. Preterm Diagnostic test kits enable analysis and diagnosis of preterm labor or premature rupture of membrane in a short duration.
