In this report, the global fetal and neonatal care equipment market has been segmented into, fetal (labor & delivery) care equipment market, and neonatal care equipment market. Based on type of product, the fetal (labor & delivery) care equipment segment is further categorized into, ultrasound devices, fetal doppler, fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, fetal monitors (further classified into antepartum/external fetal monitors and intrapartum/internal fetal monitors), and fetal pulse oximeters; whereas the neonatal care equipment segment comprises infant warmers, incubators, convertible warmers & incubators, phototherapy equipment, respiratory devices, and neonatal monitoring devices. Phototherapy equipment segment is divided into, conventional phototherapy, and fiber-optic phototherapy. Respiratory devices are classified into, neonatal ventilators, CPAP devices, oxygen analyzers and monitors, resuscitators, and others (including, apnea monitor, oxygen hood, nasal masks, feeding tubes, and nasal cannula). Neonatal monitoring devices segment is categories into, blood pressure monitors, cardiac monitors, pulse oximeters, capnographs, and integrated monitoring devices.
The neonatal care equipment market held the largest share of the global fetal (labor & delivery) and neonatal care equipment market in 2015. Factors such as the increasing prevalence of hospital acquired infections in newborn babies and huge patient populations of preterm & low weight birth babies in both developed and developing markets demand for neonatal care equipment are stimulating the growth of the neonatal care equipment market. However, the fetal (labor & delivery) care equipment market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR from 2015 to 2020.
Geographically, North America commanded the largest share of the global fetal (labor & delivery) and neonatal care equipment market in 2015, followed by Europe. A number of factors such as presence of a better reimbursement structure and the availability of experts (neonatologists) and well-equipped NICU centers are driving the growth of the fetal (labor & delivery) and neonatal care equipment market in North America; however, increasing government pressure to reduce healthcare costs, and rising preference for bulk purchases through group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and integrated health networks (IHNs), are restricting the growth of the fetal and neonatal care equipment market in this region. The Asia-Pacific region is poised to grow at the highest CAGR of the global fetal (labor & delivery) and neonatal care equipment market in the next five years.
