North America Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market-Market Dynamics
The North American fetal and neonatal care equipment market is highly dynamic, supported by continuous R&D activities. Preterm birth is the major concern accounting for long-term disabilities like mental retardation, cerebral palsy, vision and hearing problems, which are responsible for neonatal health problems. Prenatal, fetal and neonatal care equipment are also required for other applications like treatment of hypothermia, jaundice management and fetal and neonatal monitoring.
Some of the factors driving the market are:
Increasing maternal age
Changes in lifestyle
Changes in labor treatments
Increasing demand for improved and technologically advanced fetal and neonatal care equipment
Rise in preterm birth in developing countries
However, the market is constrained by low birth rates in the developed countries.
In the past two decades, there have been profound advances in the fields of prenatal diagnosis and fetal intervention. Ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, fetal Dopplers, infant warmers & incubators, phototherapy equipment, and respiratory assistance & monitoring devices are the major market segments, accounting for almost half of the market share.
The number of preterm births in the US is 517,400. The rate of preterm birth rose from 12.8% in 2006 to 14.5% in 2013. Across states, the 2010 preterm birth rate ranged from 8.4% in Vermont to 17.6% in Mississippi and was 16.7% in Puerto Rico.
The market is segmented by product type into three major segments: prenatal and fetal equipment, neonatal equipment, and other prenatal, fetal & neonatal equipment. By geography, the market is segmented into the US, Canada, and Mexico. The US holds the major share for fetal and neonatal care equipment, accounting for more than 60% of the market.
