Market Overview

The placenta is the link between mother and baby during pregnancy. Two arteries and one vein in the umbilical cord carry blood back and forth. If the newborn baby is ill right after birth, a catheter may be placed. Due to increasing premature births, probability of baby being born unhealthy is also increasing. Moreover, the neonatal care is being advocated by governments globally and hence is increasing. These factors have resulted in growth of the umbilical vessel catheter market.

Hence, the market for UVC is expected to grow.
