Market Overview

Global Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment market is expected witness a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the market growth include increasing number of preterm and low-weight births, growing technological advancement for infant and maternal care products, and rising congenital and pregnancy complications due to sedentary lifestyle.

The rise in the preterm and low-weight births of newborns is one of the major factors for the growth of the fetal and neonatal care equipment market. With the rising number of births, a large number of complications are associated with preterm births leading to neonatal deaths. In the United States, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), preterm birth affected about 1 of every 10 infants born, in 2016. Further, in 2015, the preterm births accounted for 17% of the infant deaths and several who survived had breathing problems, feeding difficulties, cerebral palsy, and vision and hearing problems.

However, the rising cost of neonatal care with advancement in the medical devices is one of the major factors hindering the fetal and neonatal care equipment market. In the United States, the average cost of infants hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) is more than USD 3,000 per day. In addition, the NICU patients total healthcare expenditure costs is nearly three times the cost of the patients population in NICUs. Thus, this affects a large number of the population particularly in the developing countries to opt for these services in regular use, impeding the growth of this market.

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 tiny babies.

Key Market Trends

Incubator is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Neonatal Care Equipment Segment

The infants are taken care of in the incubators, also known as “open warmers”. The neonatal incubators are often necessary for infants. The infants need respiratory support ranging from extra oxygen (by a head hood or nasal cannula) to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or mechanical ventilation. The temperature regulation of infants is among the major factors to be controlled in the neonatal incubator cases. The companies vary the devices on several parameters, among which temperature regulation is very important, as severe temperature differences lead to neonate heat loss, hypothermia, and apnoea, which are closely related to airflow and air velocity. Some of the major players in this market segment include GE healthcare, Mom Incubators Ltd, S S Technomed (P) Ltd.

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecasted Period

North America is expected to dominate the fetal and neonatal care equipment market due to the presence of well-established healthcare facilities and the rise in demand for advanced healthcare systems. In the United States, the value-based healthcare model has led to the development of highly specialized NICU centers with the rise in the number of devices from the US FDA. Asia-Pacific is also expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period owing to factors, such as increasing healthcare expenditures, high patient pool, and rising private hospitals and diagnostic centers in this region.
