Pregnancy test kits are devices used to detect possible pregnancy in females. Pregnancy tests are generally done after the first day of missed period. Fewer pregnancy test kits in which detection is possible through urine sample are user friendly and can be demonstrated at home by understanding the manual. These pregnancy test kits give an early indication of pregnancy. Generally, home pregnancy test kits provide 99% accurate results and can be further confirmed by undergoing a lab pregnancy test. These kits are designed to detect human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone, a pregnancy hormone, in the urine sample or blood sample. hCG increases in the early days of pregnancy and presence of this hormone above particular range confirms pregnancy.
The global pregnancy detection kits market is driven growing awareness about early and self-detection of pregnancy, increasing demand for self-detection of pregnancy boosted by rising adolescent pregnancy rate, technological advancements in pregnancy tests making it more accurate, promotional strategies employed by manufacturers with celebrity endorsement which influences the rural population to undertake self-pregnancy test through kits, and expansion of logistics network by distributors and manufacturers to increase accessibility of the kits. However, high cost is a major restraint of the global pregnancy detection kits market which is a concern in the undeveloped and developed countries. The risk factor associated with the inaccuracy of the test results is also hampering the growth of the global pregnancy detection kits market.
