Global Fetal Monitoring Devices Market 2017-2021

About Fetal Monitoring Devices

Fetal monitoring refers to electronic patient monitoring. It records the vital physiological functions of the fetus and the contractions of the mother's uterus during pregnancy and birth. Fetal monitors are bedside units that include an observing monitoring unit, cables, and electrodes. They measure, record, and display FHR, uterine contractions, and maternal BP and heart rate before and during labor. Fetal monitors detect the FHR and uterine contraction indirectly through the mother's stomach. This can be done either through external fetal monitoring or internal fetal monitoring, which involves the placement of an electrode on the fetal scalp (or other exposed skin surface) to measure the changes in pressure inside the uterus.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global fetal monitoring devices market to grow at a CAGR of 7.12% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fetal Monitoring Devices Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global fetal monitoring devices market: Analogic Corporation, GE Healthcare, Medtronic, Philips Healthcare, and Siemens Healthineers.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ArjoHuntleigh, CONTEC MEDICAL, CooperSurgical, Edan Instruments, FUJIFILM SonoSite, Lutech Medical, MedGyn, Mediana, Medical Econet, Natus Medical, Neoventa Medical, Shenzhen Bestman Instrument, Shenzhen Unicare Electronic, Spacelabs Healthcare, Sunray Medical Apparatus, and Wallach Surgical.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is rising awareness about reducing MMR and IMR. The health of mothers and infants influenced by numerous variables. Several pregnant women, new mothers, and infants encounter many health-related conditions or death each year, mostly due to preventable or treatable conditions. Almost all maternal and infant deaths (99%) occur in the developing countries. Africa has the highest rate of maternal and infant deaths. Attention to maternal and child health (MCH) has been increasing in the recent past. Since 1990, under-five and maternal mortality have reduced considerably. Improving MCH is essential to reduce the cost burden of healthcare. Each year, an estimated 303,000 women die during pregnancy and childbirth.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising incidence of preterm births. A preterm or premature birth is a birth that takes place more than three weeks before the baby is due. A premature birth occurs before the start of the week 37 of pregnancy or after 259 days of gestation. Normally, a pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks. Premature birth allows the baby lesser time to develop in the womb. Most premature births occur in the late preterm stage. Premature babies often have medical complications, especially those born the earliest.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is inconsistencies of electronic fetal monitoring devices. Electronic fetal monitoring is the process of monitoring the baby during labor and delivery by monitoring the heart rate. Electronic fetal monitoring can be used to detect any alterations in the normal heart rate pattern during labor. If changes are detected, measures can be taken to help treat the underlying problem. There are two types of electronic fetal monitoring, which include external fetal monitoring and internal fetal monitoring.
