Global Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market is Estimated to Value Over USD 9 Billion by 2029 End

  • 10 Jul 2019

Global Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market is estimated to value over USD 9 Billion by 2029 end and register a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period 2019 to 2029. 

There has been a rapid rise in the birth rate worldwide. Additionally, there has been an increase in the number of premature births which increases demand for devices that can be utilized to reduce the fetal mortality rate. Increasing awareness regarding neonatal infant care is an integral factor which can assist the market to grow globally.

Factors Impacting Market Growth
An increasing number of premature infant births, a rising number of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) admissions and growing awareness regarding fetal care are some of the influential factors responsible for positive market growth.
Nevertheless, the neonatal care equipment is expensive increasing the treatment cost which can negatively affect the market growth. 

Insights on Global Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market:
1.    By Region

•    North America
•    Europe
•    Asia Pacific
•    Rest of the World
North America dominates the global market and this is mainly credited to the presence of excellent reimbursement structure, availability of well-equipped and advanced NICU centres, maternity mortality rate, rising prevalence of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) and lifestyle challenges like smoking, lack of nutrition, etc.
The Asia Pacific region is rapidly growing due to an escalating birth rate in the region. Additionally, improving healthcare infrastructure in the emerging economies like India and rising awareness regarding neonate care has also boosted the market growth in the region.

2.    By Product
•    Fetal (Labor and Delivery) Care Equipment
o    Fetal Doppler Devices
o    Fetal Ultrasound Devices
o    Fetal MRI Systems
o    Fetal Monitors
o    Fetal Pulse Oximeter

•    Neonatal Care Equipment 
o    Infant Warmers
o    Neonatal Incubators
o    Convertible Warmers & Incubators
o    Neonatal Phototherapy Equipment
o    Respiratory Care Devices
o    Neonatal Monitoring Devices
o    Neonatal Diagnostic Imaging Devices

Fetal doppler devices dominate this market owing to the growing popularity for using doppler devices because of their ease of use, display functionalities and novel features. Additionally, these devices offer mobility as these are handheld devices which are battery-operated which increases its demand even more. 
Moreover, the doppler imaging diagnosis is highly adopted especially during the first trimester of pregnancy and in the case of diagnosing restricted fetal growth thus driving market growth. There is a rising preference for fetal-placental circulatory systems to be assessed which further increases the demand for doppler devices.
In the case of neonatal care, the incubator segment leads the market owing to a rise in the number of neonatal hypothermia cases as it is the most common reason for neonatal mortality. The only disadvantage that these incubators have is the limited access to the infant as compared to something like infant warmers and this can hamper the market growth of this segment.

3.    By End User
•    Hospitals
•    Pediatric and Neonatal Clinics
•    Nursing Homes
Hospital segment is likely to dominate the market due to the advanced features that hospitals offer especially for newborn babies. This trend is prominently observed in developed economies where the spending capability of the patient population is high.

Competitive Landscape:
•    Tier 1 players- established companies in the market with a major market share  
•    Tier 2 players 
•    Emerging players which are growing rapidly
