Market Overview

The factors that are driving the market's growth include increasing number of preterm and low-weight births, growing technological advancement in infant and maternal care products, and rising congenital and pregnancy complications due to a sedentary lifestyle. Statistics from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence suggest that preterm birth is the single biggest cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity in the United Kingdom. Preterm babies often require special care in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), owing to which the demand for neonatal devices is also increasing, which is expected to act as a key driving force. Moreover, the incidence of diseases among newborns has also increased. These factors have increased the demand for fetal and neonatal care equipment in the region.

However, the rising cost of neonatal care is one of the major factors hindering the European fetal and neonatal care equipment market.

Scope of the report

As per the scope of the report, fetal monitoring devices are vital tools that are routinely used in gynecology and obstetrics interventions, to examine fetal health during labor and delivery. Neonatal devices are extensively used in the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), where complex machines and monitoring devices are designed for the unique needs of newborn babies.

Key Market Trends

Neonatal Care Equipment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share

Neonatal monitoring instruments and equipment are used in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), emergency room, and operating theatre at all levels of hospitals for continuous monitoring of the neonates and infants. Preterm born babies are more prone to infections and diseases and require more care. According to an article published in 2018 by Sandrine Ceurstemont, about 500,000 babies are born prematurely in Europe every year and numbers are increasing. As these babies require more care, an increase in preterm birth is expected to drive the market growth.
