Amniocentesis Needle Market Estimated to Flourish by 2025


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/18/2018 -- Amniocentesis is a prenatal test also known as amniotic fluid test or AFT. It is carried out to diagnose the chromosomal abnormalities and fetal infections. It is also used for sex determination. Amniocentesis involves removal of a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, from the sac surrounding the fetus. Amniotic fluid has cells and other substances that can give evidence about the health of fetus. An amniocentesis needle is used to withdraw amniotic fluid precisely. Amniocentesis needles are sterile and intended for single use. The amniocentesis needle tip has a spiral engraving to offer clear visibility under ultrasound guidance. The needle is placed into the amniotic sac away from both baby and the placenta to withdraw amniotic fluid. Direct fetal injuries during an amniocentesis is rare; however, some risk in involved in the whole amniocentesis procedure. Amniocentesis technique can lead to severe complications such as amniotic fluid leakage and contractions, but it is quite rare and uncommon. It occurs after the procedure in 1% to 2% of cases.

Increase in pregnancy rate, rise in preference for non- and minimally-invasive diagnostic procedures, high adoption and acceptance of diagnostic test in developed markets, high success rate of amniocentesis procedure, and innovations and developments in technology drive the global Amniocentesis Needle Market. Major restraints of the market are fetal injuries, stiff competition among existing players, and high cost of the procedure. Additionally, low availability of diagnostic equipment and lack of awareness of amniocentesis technique among the rural population in developing and underdeveloped economies.
