Market Overview

The North American baby monitors market was valued at USD 659.58 million in 2021, and it is projected to register a CAGR of 9.44% during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, front-line health workers in many countries, including the United States, turned to two-way baby monitors to interact with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients in isolation as a temporary solution. Additionally, various manufacturers are launching baby monitors and providing attractive discount offers to customers to increase their market penetration, primarily for online sales. In February 2021, Vacos announced the global launch (available in the United States, Amazon Store) of its first hackproof Baby Monitor, a breakthrough product offering customers an all-in-one intelligent way to keep tabs on their babies at home remotely.

Parents use baby monitors to stay updated on their baby’s movement in their absence. Some customers use these monitors to hear the sounds from their baby’s room, while some customers use them to keep watch on their children through video monitoring. Audio and video managers are used to watch the babies and kids.

An increase in the number of working parents and nuclear families has led to the higher adoption of baby monitors. Additionally, lifestyle changes, a rise in online retailing, and increased expenditure on baby safety, along with expenditure on baby care products, are key factors driving demand for the baby monitor market.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Number of Working Parents Resulting in Hectic Life Schedules

The rising complexities of routines of today’s parents and the need for infants to be observed frequently to avoid any kind of injuries or accidents cannot be overlooked. Today’s parents, especially the working ones, need a device that can help monitor their child’s activities even when they are away from their home or in another room. Employment trends from around the region indicate a growing number of parents, especially mothers, who work. The number of mothers participating in the workforce is increasing, with more of them aiming to keep close surveillance on the activities of their babies, even after keeping them in the care of someone else, thereby driving the demand for baby monitors. Nowadays, as parents work from home or engage in other household chores, they find it convenient to possess a monitor that helps track the activities of their babies without being in the same room as the baby. According to the US Census Bureau, 2020, out of about 11 million single-parent families with children under the age of 18, 80% were headed by single mothers. About two-thirds of single mothers are working outside the home at any one time, which is a slightly higher share than married mothers who are also working outside the home. Moreover, it makes parents' work easier, as they can simultaneously work and look after their babies, even if it is from a distant location. These factors are driving the market’s growth.
