Although there has been a slight decrease in birth rate, it has been estimated that potential decreases in incubator sales due to this decline in birth rate has been offset by the relatively stable incidence of neonates requiring additional medical intervention at birth and the increasing rates of pre-term births. One significant trend that will drive the warmer and incubator market is sales in the convertible bed market. While these devices are much more expensive than a warmer or incubator, these units are able to work as both, saving the hospital space and reducing the cost of purchasing both types of devices. There has also been movement towards larger hospitals purchasing more premium beds that have more technological amenities such as silent alarms and aesthetic add-ons that improve the comfort of the child and parents. These trends are causing an increase in the ASP of these devices, which will drive market growth over the forecast period.
