The global amniocentesis needles market was valued at USD 161.1 million in 2019. Increase in pregnancy rate, increasing burden of congenital disorders, along with high reliability of amniocentesis procedure are key factors driving the global amniocentesis needles market.
Amniocentesis is a prenatal test used to diagnose fetal chromosomal anomalies. An amniocentesis needle is inserted into the amniotic sac in a pregnant woman's belly to collect a small volume of amniotic fluid for diagnostic purposes. An ultrasound is used as a guide to assess the best position for the needle to penetrate the amniotic sac and safely drain the fluid. The needle is used to extract a sample of amniotic fluid. While the collection of fluid takes less than five minutes, the entire procedure takes about 45 minutes. Increase in burden of congenital anomalies along with increase in pregnancy rate drives the demand for amniocentesis needles. Moreover, high accuracy of the amniocentesis procedure is expected to drive the growth of amniocentesis needles market in the future. However, high cost of amniocentesis procedure, fetal injuries and lack of awareness about amniocentesis technique in developing regions are anticipated to hinder the growth of the market over the forecast period.
The global amniocentesis needles market has been segmented based on type, application, end-user, and region. On the basis of type, the amniocentesis needles market is segmented into 100 to 150 mm needles, smaller than 100 mm needles, and larger than 150 mm needles. On the basis on application, the global amniocentesis needles market is categorized into amniocentesis, amnioreduction, fetal blood transfusion, amnioinfusion, and cordocentesis. On the basis of end-user, the global amniocentesis needles market is segregated into hospitals, diagnostic centers, clinics and others.

Since 1877, a needle has been used to remove amniotic fluid from the maternal gravid abdomen. It was first identified as a therapeutic modality for releasing amniotic fluid from polyhydramnios fetuses or aiding in the treatment of fetuses with rhesus isoimmunization. Amniocentesis was and is still used for genetic testing since the observation that cultured amniotic fluid cells could be used to acquire fetal karyotype. It is also used to treat fetal conditions such as polyhydramnios. Amniocentesis, also known as amniotic fluid testing is a prenatal diagnostic procedure. It is used to detect chromosomal defects and abnormalities in the fetus. The procedure involves removal of a small volume of amniotic fluid with the help of amniocentesis needles from the sac containing the fetus. Amniocentesis needles are available in various sizes ranging from 20-guage to 22-gauge. Increase in congenital disorders pose huge healthcare burden. Moreover, higher accuracy of amniocentesis will propel demand for amniocentesis needles. Moreover, major industry players are focused on developing amniocentesis needles in order to expand their product portfolio.
The global amniocentesis needles market has been segmented based on type, application and end-user, and region. Based on type, the amniocentesis needles market is segmented into 100 to 150 mm needles, larger than 150 mm and smaller than 100 mm needles. 100 to 150 mm needles segment held majority of the market share in 2019 owing to widespread use of these needles on account of their optimal length and suitability of use for most patients. The most widely used needles for amniocentesis diagnostic tests are 100 to 150 mm needles. Growing awareness of the amniocentesis technique for detecting and diagnosing anomalies and health of the developing fetus is expected to boost the overall demand of these needles. However, larger than 150 mm needles is anticipated to witness lucrative growth in the coming years.
Application-wise, the global amniocentesis needles market is categorized into amniocentesis, amnioreduction, and fetal blood transfusion, amnioinfusion, and cordocentesis procedures. On the basis on end-user, the global amniocentesis needles market is categorized into hospitals, diagnostic centers, clinics and others. Diagnostic centers is anticipated to witness strong growth in the coming years owing to comprehensive expertise as well as presence of skilled personnel for amniocentesis diagnosis which is used to diagnose serious chromosome problems, such as Down’s syndrome, as well as missing chromosome sections.
The global amniocentesis needles market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the global amniocentesis needles market in 2019. However, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a highest pace through 2028.
Adoption of advanced technology, high purchasing power, and high awareness about amniocentesis in the U.S. are major factors expected to drive the demand for amniocentesis needles in the region. Moreover, large number of amniocentesis tests performed in the U.S. will drive the growth of amniocentesis needles market in the future. For instance, amniocentesis is performed approximately 200,000 times annually, according to American Pregnancy Association.
However, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace over the next few years. There is a strong growth potential in the emerging economies such as India, and China. The rapidly rising population, surging disposable income and growing awareness about amniocentesis technique in countries such as India and China provides large market for amniocentesis needles.
