The size of the North America Pregnancy Testing Market was worth USD 0.51 Billion in 2022. This value is estimated to reach USD 0.64 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.54%.
Escalating first-time-age pregnancy, technological advancements, and rising consciousness levels among the people regarding the various brands of pregnancy test kits to use for the tests are some of the major factors supporting the pregnancy testing market in North America. Furthermore, hiking requirement levels for self-detecting kits, rising fertility disorders, and approving government proposals regarding family planning will further likely foster market growth in the coming years. In addition, using these pregnancy testing kits gives quick and accurate results in a digital format, another factor helping the market's growth rate.
In the past few years, there has been a rise in the incidence of unplanned pregnancies, dramatically leading to high demand for pregnancy test kits and devices across North America. As published in the National Library of Medicine, an estimated 3 million unwanted pregnancies and 1.5 induced abortions are happening in the United States. In addition, growing awareness levels on the usage of pregnancy self-detection devices increased awareness of the benefits and advantages obtained by using these pregnancy detection kits, the rising rate of teenage pregnancy, the rise in government support for the use of pregnancy tests, and a high rise in demand for self-test pregnancy kits are further promoting the pregnancy testing market growth in North America. In addition, the rise in technological advancements in pregnancy test kits due to a constant trend in introducing new products in the market combined with manufacturers' focus on expanding distribution networks to increase device availability of more sensitive devices for improving consumer experience is further foreseen to fuel the market growth.
However, the high cost of pregnancy test kits and low adoption rates are significant challenges to market growth. Women with PCOS and having low ovulation use kits for ovulation expectations are likely to impede the market growth in North America. In the past decade, people have had less awareness regarding the availability of pregnancy testing kits and the risk of ineffective testing in some cases. Moreover, most of the kits claim to be 99% accurate, even though the possibility of attaining false results is high in some brands. Furthermore, strict government policies challenge industry players in the region. All these factors are expected to lead to a decline in the market's growth rate.
