2016-2020 Digital Pregnancy Test Kits Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast
Driven by rising demand for the self-home pregnancy tests and the growing preference for digital pregnancy test kits over analog variants, bolstered growth in the U.S. digital pregnancy test kits market that grew at an exponential 13.2% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.
Consistent growth of demand for self-detecting pregnancy test kits adopted by working women, allows for reduced need for lab tests such as ultrasound scans, which is a major factor that will boost market growth in coming years.
Increasing awareness regarding the availability of digital pregnancy test kits, and rising preference for these products over analog options has propelled the digital pregnancy test kits market in recent years. The growing advancements of pregnancy technologies creates a conducive environment for growth.
The growing incidence of inaccurate interpretation due to the visibility of lines has inclined consumer preference towards digital pregnancy test kits that are convenient while providing accurate results on digital screens. This, in turn, is widening the customer base, aiding long-term growth.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in eight couples have trouble conceiving or sustaining a pregnancy, due to age, health issues, or other factors. This indicates that there is a need in the market for cost-efficient and accurate conception indicators.
For example, Swiss Precision Diagnostics GmbH has launched Clearblue digital pregnancy test kit with advanced features such as smart countdown and week estimator.
Moreover, the rising teenage pregnancy rate, has pushed manufacturers to conduct promotional campaigns that engage celebrities to influence and promote their products among the rural populations while expanding distribution networks worldwide.
These factors have positively anticipated the growth of the digital pregnancy test kits market. According to data published in BMJ journal, in about 1 in 475 pregnancies, women are unaware of the pregnancy until 20 weeks of the gestation period or longer.
According to the FMI report the market is expected to rise at a 6.0% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.

How are Initiatives by Governments Supporting Demand of Digital Pregnancy Test Kits?
Growing investment in various initiatives by manufacturers to support women’s health is expected to drive the U.S. digital pregnancy test kits market.
For instance, in October 2017, Prega News, the Mankind pregnancy test kits brand, has rolled a digital campaign titled ‘#JustTalk’ to create awareness about prenatal depression in women on account of World Mental Health Day.
The campaign captures insights focused on women’s emotional needs during pregnancy, with prenatal depression being common and completely normal. Expecting women need to be careful and take precautions as they are prone to additional risks, which has an adverse effect on mental health conditions. This campaign expects to promote their brand and expand their portfolio.
Additionally, governments are focusing on improving women’s health through various awareness and healthcare programs. This, in turn, is expected to fuel growth of the digital pregnancy test kits market. For instance, the Office of Women’s Health, in the U.S. Department of Health provides guidance on the use of pregnancy tests.
What Are the Key Trends in the Digital Pregnancy Test Kits Market?
The rapid adoption of digital pregnancy test kits over analog options is expected to boost the U.S. digital pregnancy test kits market. Women often find difficulty in interpreting test results in the case of analog pregnancy test kits that show lines while indicating pregnancy, which has shifted the preference for digital pregnancy test kits that provide direct to the digital screen.
The results of the feasibility study conducted by Clearblue in 2013 revealed that the use of digital devices has reduced the chances of errors and misinterpretation by 70%.
For instance, First Response PRO are increasing the usage of digital pregnancy test kits including connectivity to the smartphone via Bluetooth. Moreover, women tend to get multiple confirmations for their pregnancy.
Thus, to meet customer demand manufacturers are offering combo packs with 2-way confirmation of their pregnancy. Swiss Precision Diagnostics have introduced a Clearblue Combo pack that can give 2-way confirmation of pregnancy.
The combo consists of Clearblue Rapid Detection Pregnancy Tests which gives a quick result with a clear plus (+) or minus (-) and a clear digital result in words – 'Pregnant or 'Not Pregnant' on with a Smart Countdown feature.
What Are the Factors Restraining Market Growth?
Advanced pregnancy test kits cost more as compared to the analog alternatives. Women with low income are unable to afford high-cost digital pregnancy kits which in turn may affect the demand for advanced digital pregnancy test kits devices.
For instance, in the U.S. the basic versions of digital pregnancy kits cost for over US$ 10 and advanced versions may cost to around US$ 20 or more. These kits allow for around 2-3 tests each. Therefore, one test costs between US$ 5-15.
However, one conventional pregnancy test strip costs less than US$ 1 which is significantly more affordable. Additionally, incidence of product recalls is expected to impede the digital pregnancy test kits market in the U.S.
