"Early disease detection surge market demand"

Newborn screening plays a crucial role in early disease detection, allowing healthcare providers to identify genetic and metabolic disorders shortly after birth. Through a simple blood test, potential health issues can be flagged, enabling timely medical intervention and treatment. Early detection allows healthcare professionals to initiate necessary therapies and interventions promptly, preventing the progression of certain disorders and reducing associated complications. This proactive approach empowers families to make informed decisions about their child's health and ensures better outcomes for newborns facing potential health challenges.

What restraints the growth of the global newborn screening market?

" Limited access to newborn screening can impede the market growth”

In low-resource settings, limited access to newborn screening services can be a significant challenge. Factors such as inadequate healthcare infrastructure, lack of trained personnel, and financial constraints may hinder the establishment and maintenance of comprehensive screening programs. As a result, many newborns in these regions may miss out on the benefits of early disease detection and timely interventions.
