Fetal And Neonatal Care Equipment Market Overview
Fetal and neonatal care focuses on aspects of child health and diseases from perinatal period to adolescence stage. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 340,000 maternal deaths, 2.7 Mn stillbirths and 3.1 Mn neonatal deaths occur worldwide each year.
As per a recent study the rate of maternal death, stillbirth and early neonatal death have declined in the high as well as few middle-income countries, primarily because of improved obstetric care. There are 17 National Institute of Child Health and Development Neonatal Research Network in U.S. where programs are introduced or experimented in order to enhance the quality and research for better outcomes of patients.
In 2013, Children's Health launched Texas’ first dedicated neonatal telemedicine service which offers physicians availability at other NICU’s hospitals for neonatal cases. Vendors focus on providing highly efficient and low cost equipment in order to cater to the neonatal segment which reduces morbidity and mortality in regions with poor resources and less skilled physicians.
Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market: Drivers & Restraints
The global market growth for fetal and neonatal care is expected to be driven by increased birth rate, hospital acquired infection among new born and pregnant women. According to the UNICEF, 60% of neonatal deaths and 68% of world perinatal death occur in Asia.
Around 70% of the infant deaths occurs during the first month of birth due to negligible care. However, lower birth rate among established countries and presence of too many fragmented players in the market are some factors anticipated to limit growth of global fetal and neonatal care market within the forecast period of 2016-2026.
