This market research report identifies players like BD, Drägerwerk, Fisher & Paykel, GE, and Philips to be the key vendors in the global fetal and neonatal care equipment market. This research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by product type (NICU equipment, labor and delivery equipment, and other fetal and neonatal care equipment) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global fetal and neonatal care equipment market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global fetal and neonatal care equipment market to grow at a CAGR of more than 7% by 2020. In the recent years, the demand for mobile medical units with portable neonatal warming equipment and phototherapy units that offer prenatal care has increased across the globe. Most people in developed countries opt for home care treatment post-surgery. Portable fetal and neonatal care equipment is more advantageous than conventional devices as it helps increase thermal care for premature and low-weight babies. These portable devices offer a stable micro-climate, easy sanitization, and close mother-child interaction. The growing demand for new non-voltage and portable equipment for fetal and neonatal care will positively impact the growth prospects for the fetal-neonatal monitoring market during the forecast period.

The market is witnessing the development of several new products that have been designed to meet the requirements of neonates. Some technological advancements include multifunction fetal monitors that can provide information on heart rate, temperature, electrocardiogram (ECG) reading, and saturation of peripheral oxygen (SpO2) levels, colored ultrasound machines, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices, tracheostomy feeding tubes, and LED phototherapy units. Vendors are also focusing on the development of advanced devices for neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) and the care of infants affected by respiratory disorders, infections, and other complications.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global fetal-neonatal monitoring market is marked by the presence of several global and international players and possesses significant growth opportunities. The local and regional suppliers collaborate with the international vendors to increase their revenue and geographical reach. However, these small players face tough competition with the global vendors in terms of quality, features, and patent restrictions. The lack of skilled workers and the reluctance of end-users to make high initial capital investments restrict the expansion of regional and local suppliers. Competition in the market is expected to intensify during the forecast period with increased product extensions and strategic collaborations with public hospitals and non-profit organizations.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • BD
  • Drägerwerk
  • Fisher & Paykel
  • GE
  • Philips

Other prominent vendors in the fetal and neonatal care equipment market include Analogic, Covidien, Getinge, Ivy Biomedical Systems, Masimo, Natus Medical, Nonin Medical, OSI Systems, Smiths Medical, Spacelabs Healthcare, Utah Medical Products, and Welch Allyn.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the fetal and neonatal care equipment market

  • NICU equipment
  • Labor and delivery equipment

The NICU equipment segment dominates the fetal and neonatal care equipment market and accounted for around 32% of the overall market share in 2015. NICU equipment consists of complex machines and monitoring devices for intensive care of newborns and infants. It comprises thermal control equipment and phototherapy units. Much of the segment’s growth is driven by an increase in a number of preterm births worldwide, improved healthcare infrastructure, and increased awareness about neonatal care. Vendors are coming up with low-cost, high-efficient, and field-deployable NICU equipment to cater to the neonatal segment, which will reduce the factors causing mortality and morbidity in countries with poor resource settings.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the fetal and neonatal care equipment market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

During 2015, the Americas dominated the fetal and neonatal care equipment market and accounted for more than 43% of the total market share. The US is the major revenue generator in the region owing to the huge demand for this equipment and the increasing number of FDA approvals for these devices. Increase in patient safety concerns, a growing number of premature births and the rise in preterm deaths have led to the adoption of sophisticated equipment in NICUs and for respiratory support for neonates. The surging requirement for portable devices and the cost-effectiveness of fetal monitors will contribute significantly to the growth of the market in the region in the coming years.
