The author predicts that the global fetal and neonatal equipment market will grow at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. The market is classified into different product categories: patient monitoring, diagnostic devices, warmers, incubators, and phototherapy equipment. The rise in patient monitoring especially fetal and neonatal care equipment have seen increased adoption in basic to advanced equipment across the globe. The rise in adoption of such devices in developing countries with various agreements and policies have helped the market to grow faster. Fetal and neonatal care equipment is mostly used in emergency and life-threatening complication. Factors driving the market include congenital diseases, premature health, lifestyle, and chronic conditions such as anaemia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, hyperbilirubinemia, and intraventricular haemorrhage.

The market is growing significantly due to the technological advancement of patient monitoring, respiratory, and phototherapy devices. According to WHO, every year there are about 15 million infants born preterm, which is the primary reason for higher mortality. Most of the emerging economies like India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Bangladesh have the highest preterm due to poor infrastructure and lack of trained professionals.

Proper prenatal care and appropriate medical care is important for a healthy pregnancy. Further, features such as lightweight, compact, advanced featured, and remote-based monitoring has enabled end-users to rely on effective patient monitoring devices. The fetal and neonatal care equipment markets are expected to see steady growth in the future. The market is not much explored in developing markets and is going to create a huge market opportunity for the global market.
The market is fueled by innovation and new technological techniques & procedures. The increase in demand for more advanced & customized diagnosis and treatment with the availability of vast healthcare services globally have pushed the market to produce safe, efficient, and cost-effective products in the market. The advancement in technology has shifted most of the developed economies towards high-quality care. Also, connectivity via wireless technologies has eliminated the need for bedside transmitters as mobile app integration has become more seamless in an individual’s daily routine. Few devices are proactive in anticipating the health information and deliver it timely with supportive communication and coordination among the providers involved in the healthcare delivery services.

Segmentation by Product Types:

  • Fetal Care Equipment
  • Neonatal Care Equipment
  • Others

The neonatal care units have a complex setup with different types of machines and monitoring devices for intensive care of neonates or new-born. This segment is contributing the maximum share due to various factors: preterm births, deformities with new infants, increase initiatives by the government to support and upgrade the existing equipment and rise in demand in lieu with collaborations and agreements for high-quality neonatal systems. Phototherapy units and warming equipment’s share the maximum revenue holder in the global fetal and neonatal market and is expected to grow steadily in the market.

Segmentation by End-users:

In 2018, hospitals gained the highest share in the fetal and neonatal equipment market with the large volumes of diagnostics and treatments globally.

Segmentation by Regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • RoW

According to the author's analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global fetal and neonatal equipment market in 2018. In North America, the US and Canada are the leading countries with the newest advances and wide options in choosing diagnosis for early prevention and treatment. Europe is the second leading region. The market in Europe was largely driven due to advances in and replacement of devices in fetal and neonatal care systems. Factors such as an increase in the incidence of preterm birth, continuous adoption of advanced technologies, and increasing awareness are driving the market. The leading countries are Germany, France, UK, and Italy to the market.

The APAC region is expected to grow faster due to the increase in sales of new fetal and neonatal equipment in the coming years. According to UNICEF, it was estimated that in 2017 the neonatal mortality rate in India (24%), China (4.7%), Thailand (5.3%), Vietnam (10.6%) deaths per 1,000 live birth. The availability of cost-effective or low-cost patient monitoring devices is helping many hospitals, NICU centres, and many other healthcare facilities to adopt such diagnostics and monitoring for safe and efficient fetal and neonatal care.
