Global Fetal and Neonatal Monitoring Market - Segmented by Product Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

The market has been estimated to register a CAGR of 6.8%, during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021. Fetal and neonatal equipment are mostly used to monitor, evaluate, and treat diseases in the prenatal and postnatal stages of infants.

Advanced Technology in Fetal and Prenatal Monitoring

Monitoring procedures are important for the evaluation of the clinical state of patients and to assess changes in their conditions, thus providing necessary treatments on time. Both these two objectives can be achieved by introducing technology, thus, allowing accurate classification and extraction of useful diagnostic information. It has been shown that the computation of different indices on FHRV signals, either linear or nonlinear, gives helpful indications to describe pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the cardiovascular and neural system controlling the fetal heart. As a further contribution, also wearable systems for fetal ECG recording could provide new technological solutions improving the quality and usability of prenatal monitoring. These technological advancements provide a feasible environment for the growth of this market in the future. Additionally, increasing incidence of premature birth and growing government initiatives in developing countries regarding fetal care are further augmenting the market growth.

Stringent Regulatory Policies

In the expanding market for medical devices and therapies, there are stringent regulatory policies in place to ensure the safety of such drugs and devices. Pre-market approval is an FDA process of scientific and regulatory review to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drugs and devices. There have been procedures by the FDA to heighten the post-market surveillance. Hence, citizens from countries where the review process is shorter benefit more than countries with longer review processes and stringent regulations. The presence of stringent regulations is dampening the innovation in the market and hindering the growth of this market. Other factors include high cost of equipment, which is further likely to impede the market growth.

Asia Pacific to Grow at Significant Rate

The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a considerably higher rate during the forecast period owing to aspects, such as high birth rate in some Asia Pacific countries, such as India & China along with rising awareness programs for the improvement of fetal care & neonatal care.
