Market Overview

The South American fetal & neonatal monitoring market growth is attributed to the growing birth rate, preterm births, increasing cesarean sections, increasing complications during childbirth. Fetal & neonatal monitoring is important in delivering life-sustaining, non-invasive, and developmentally supportive care to neonates and in providing a quiet and serene environment to protect the development of the fetus. Thus, there is a great demand for these products at a low cost or locally manufactured products with safety as the main criteria.  

The problem of preterm births is not confined to low-income countries. According to the World Health Organization, Brazil ranks among the top ten countries with the highest number of preterm births. In high-income countries, like Brazil, the increases in the number of preterm births are linked to the number of older women having babies, increased use of fertility drugs, and resulting in multiple pregnancies. In other developed countries in the region, medically unnecessary inductions and Cesarean deliveries before full-term have also increased preterm births.

However, the high cost and strict regulations are restarining the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Neonatal Monitoring Segment is Expected to Dominate the Market

Neonatal monitoring instruments 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. The neonatal monitoring system is capable of monitoring parameters such as electrocardiogram, respiration rate, heart rate, blood pressure, peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2), and body temperature.

According to the Global Burden of Disease, 2019, for the year 2019, Brazil had 360097 preterm births. With the huge burden of preterm births, the region is expected to have a demand for neonatal monitoring devices.
