Newborn Screening Market size was valued at USD 838 million in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2023 to 2029. Newborn screening is the practice where every newborn baby is tested for certain potentially fatal disorders. As newborns are more liable to infections, newborn screening helps in early diagnosis and proper treatment which can make the difference between lifelong impairment and healthy development. Newborn screening consists of a bloodstream test, hearing screening, and screening for critical congenital heart defects. The screening is done within few days of birth. These screening programs are generally run by state or national governing bodies. In this program, various initiatives have been taken by the Japans Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (JSOG), UK (PEACH), and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretarys Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (SACHDNC). WHO recommended the newborn screening program in order to safeguard the health of children all over the world. Newborn screening not only saves lives but can also improve the health of the children. The World Health Organization has stated that over 270,000 babies globally die of congenital disorders. In 2010, the WHO has taken a step in order to resolve the neonatal deaths by developing strong surveillance systems.
