Fertility And Pregnancy Test Kits Market By Product (Pregnancy Test Kits, Fertility/Ovulation Tests), By Test Type (HCG Blood Test, HCG Urine Test, LH Urine Test, FSH Urine Test), By Distribution Channel (Hospitals & Specialty Clinics, Pharmacies, Online Retail, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The primary factors driving the growth of the global fertility and pregnancy test kits market are the growing demand for self-contained solutions that consumers can directly use, the growing risk of infertility, and the easy availability of time-saving and cost-effective pregnancy detection solutions. In addition, the increasing use of rapid testing kits in fertility clinics and home care, the growing rate of adolescent pregnancies, and the high promotion of such solutions are some of the other factors supporting market growth.

On the other hand, lack of awareness about the availability of precise ovulation and fertility kits in low-income countries and questions raised about the precision of such devices, along with the risk of false results due to improper use of pregnancy detection kits, hold back the growth of this market. The major players in this industry are coming up with intensive marketing strategies. These, along with alliances with e-commerce platforms and distribution agreements with local players, will open new opportunities in emerging markets.

Market Synopsis

The Pregnancy Test Kits Market Will Dominate the Global Market

Between fertility kits and pregnancy kits, the pregnancy test kits segment occupied over 50% of the global market share in 2017, and the segment is anticipated to lead the global market through the forecast period. The first pregnancy test kits and ovulation test kits were approved in the U.S. in 1976 and 1984, respectively. Since the first approval, over 100 pregnancy tests and several home diagnostic solutions have been approved by the US FDA for assisting patients in the diagnosis and monitoring of various conditions.

Home diagnostic solutions are inexpensive and easy to use, therefore allowing patients to take ownership of their health. Ovulation tests help women increase their chances of conception. At-home pregnancy kits enable women to detect pregnancy earlier than waiting for a doctor's appointment. Such early knowledge assists women in avoiding activities that may be harmful to fetal development. Technological advancements have improved the ease of use and precision of pregnancy diagnostic kits.

HCG Tests Occupy the Largest Revenue Share, Globally

Owing to the dominance of pregnancy tests in the global market, the dominance of HCG tests—both blood and urine-based testing—corresponds. These products are also in high demand as an alternative to radiographic diagnostic solutions. The dose to normal tissue with pregnancy kits is reduced, therefore minimizing the risk of radiation effects on the fetus and normal tissue.

There are several pregnancy detection kits approved for sale in global markets. Such tests vary in their sensitivity to detect hCG. Higher-sensitivity kits are able to detect pregnancy earlier than the tests that detect hCG at 100 mIU/mL. hCG blood tests are more often used in healthcare settings such as clinics and hospitals as they are more sensitive and can deliver an earlier prediction than urine tests.

Asia Pacific will be the fastest-growing market for fertility and pregnancy test kits.

North America and Western Europe together occupy the largest revenue shares in the global fertility and pregnancy kits market. The large share of this segment is attributed to the growing use of fertility monitoring due to advancing maternity age, the use of fertility monitoring for contraception, and high awareness about the precision of ovulation monitors and pregnancy kits. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.

Competitive prices of pregnancy test kits, a growing preference for at-home monitoring of ovulation periods, and a consistently increasing female population belonging to the maternal age group are the key factors supporting the rapid pace of the Asia-Pacific market.
