Market Overview

The neonatal ventilators market is projected to register a CAGR 6.8% during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 impacted the neonatal ventilators market significantly. The disease has disrupted supply chain of medical devices including neonatal ventilators. However, there has also been a positive impact and increased in demand for intensive care equipment including beds and ventilators for neonates and adults and personal protective equipment for healthcare. The demand for neonatal ventilators has witnessed a significant growth during COVID-19 pandemic due to surge in implementation of neonatal ventilators to COVID-19 infected patients, across the globe. Several industry players including GE Healthcare, Getinge AB, Medtronic, Hamilton Medical, and ICU Medical are investing in the development and distribution of as many ventilators as possible across the globe owing to lack of neonatal ventilators in many countries.

Government initiatives to control the rising death incidents among babies has been driving the neonatal ventilators market. As per the World Health Organization data published in 2018, preterm birth complications are one of the leading causes of death among children under 5 years of age, responsible for approximately 1 million deaths every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), preterm birth affected 1 of every 10 infants born in the United States in 2020 and these babies are at the higher risk of death and disability. These babies require specialized care. Hence, demand for neonatal ventilator is expected to grow exponentially.

With the rising cases of newborns, the demand for this equipment is also projected to increase in the near future. Neonatal ventilator has been observed to have increasing demand in middle-income countries, as birth rates in these countries are higher, and the priority for improved fetal & neonatal care is high in these countries.

Constant technological advancements such as patient-triggered ventilation and VT monitoring at the proximal airway are further spurring the market growth. As a result, sales of the neonatal ventilator are expected to flourish at a rapid rate. However, high cost associated with the ventilators may hamper the demand for neonatal ventilators market.

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, neonatal ventilators are artificial ventilation supporting devices developed for their usage on neonates. These ventilators are designed to offer artificial gas support to neonates in the form of gas delivery and gas extraction of oxygen and carbon dioxide respectively. The Neonatal Ventilators Market is Segmented by Product (Invasive Ventilation, Non-invasive Ventilation), by Mobility (Intensive Care Ventilators, Portable/Transportable Ventilators, Others), By Mode (Pressure Mode Ventilation, Combined Mode Ventilation, Volume Mode Ventilation, Others), By End User (Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, Others), and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America).

Key Market Trends

Portable Neonatal Ventilators Dominates the Market and is Expected to Maintain it's Dominance During the Forecast Period

Portable neonatal ventilator is expected to dominate the global neonatal ventilators market through the forecast period. This can be attributed to rising adoption of these ventilators due to a proximal flow sensor for precise measurements, intellitrig leak compensation, and ease of use. The transport of neonates within the hospital setting is a common event that exposes patients to risks normally not encountered in the stationary environment. As per the study of neonatal transports conducted by NICU, almost 43.8% of neonates suffer from respiratory disorders needs ventilation support during transport, which can be eliminated by the portable neonatal ventilators.

The device will transform ventilatory care through its small size, portability, ease of use, versatility and extended battery life. By costing as little as a one third of other ICU ventilators and offering both invasive and noninvasive capabilities, the device is ideally suited, no matter what their location or severity. These factors expected to drive the segment’s market.

Neonatal Ventilators Market Share

North America Contributed the Highest Share in the Global Neonatal Ventilators Market

North America is expected to dominate the overall neonatal ventilators market throughout the forecast period. Factors such as high purchasing power, technological advancements in the field, and government initiatives regarding infant safety such as “United Nations’ Millennium Development Goal” have contributed to the growth of the market in the North America region. The value-based healthcare model has led to the development of well-equipped NICU centers along with increasing number of approvals for these devices from the FDA, thereby contributing to the market growth.

North America is followed by Asia Pacific which is anticipated to witness a lucrative growth over the forecast period. The market in this region is primarily driven by an increase in birth rate and rising cases of pre-term birth in countries like China and India. Infrastructural development and improved healthcare policies promoting better care provision are also the prime factors contributing to the market growth in this region.

Neonatal Ventilators Market Growth

Competitive Landscape

The major players include companies such as Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY, Getinge AB, Hamilton Medical, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Medtronic, ResMed, ICU Medical, VYAIRE, Fosun Pharma, and Air Liquide Medical Systems India.
