Global Prenatal, Fetal and Neonatal Equipment Market $5.7 Billion by 2029

The global market for prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment projected to reach $5.7 billion by 2029, expanding moderately at a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period, driven by rising incidence of preterm births and corresponding efforts to increasing survival rates, and higher demand for advanced diagnostic, monitoring and therapeutic products.

  • Other factors driving the market growth include high birth rates in developing countries, and rising public awareness about the availability of prenatal, fetal and neonatal products in the market.
    • The identification of congenital birth defects and fetal malformations continues to increase during the antenatal period with improved imaging techniques. The treatment-specific fetal conditions continues to improve outcomes from these treatment modalities.
Global Prenatal, Fetal and Neonatal Equipment Market

The antenatal, intrapartum, and postnatal periods are considered high-risk periods for the health of mothers and their newborns, especially in developing countries.

  • Approximately 303,000 women die each year during pregnancy or the postpartum period. The vast majority (99%) of maternal deaths occur in developing countries, with most of these deaths being preventable.
    • In low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), progress in addressing preventable maternal and newborn deaths and stillbirths depends on the improvement of the quality of maternal-fetal and newborn care throughout the continuum of care.

Prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment are the devices that help in taking care of newly born children and babies developing inside mother’s womb. They also include devices that help monitor and diagnose both mother and the fetus.

The global prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment market report provides market size ($million 2021 to 2031), market share, growth trends and forecast (CAGR%, 2024 to 2031). 

The global market for prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment segmented by product [prenatal and fetal equipment (ultrasound and ultrasonography devices, fetal dopplers, fetal magnetic resonance imaging, fetal monitors), neonatal equipment (infant warmers and incubators, phototherapy equipment, neonatal monitoring devices, respiratory assistance and monitoring devices), other prenatal, fetal & neonatal equipment], and geography.

  • Based on broad product categories, the neonatal equipment segment accounted for the largest share of the total prenatal, fetal and neonatal products market, driven by increasing age of maternal population, increasing rate of premature births, high birth rates especially in emerging economies, technological advancements and increasing awareness levels about neonatal care.
    • The respiratory assistance and monitoring devices sub-segment dominated the neonatal equipment segment in terms of market revenue share, whereas the infant warmers and incubators sub-segment anticipated to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
  • However, the prenatal and fetal equipment segment expected to witness fastest growth rate in the next few years, owing to high birth rates in the emerging economies, technological advancements in various prenatal and fetal equipment, increasing portability of devices, and increasing awareness and demand for these devices across geographies.
    • Among the prenatal and fetal equipment, the ultrasound and ultrasonography devices sub-segment led the global share, while the fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sub-segment predicted to grow at a slightly fastest rate during the forecast period.

The global market for prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment research report is further divided by geography into North America (U.S., Canada), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Rest of EU), Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, Rest of APAC), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Rest of LA) and Rest of the World.

  • In terms of geography, the North America region dominated the prenatal, fetal and neonatal equipment market, with maximum share of the global market, followed by the Europe region, and also expected to retain its leading position.
    • Factors propelling the market growth in the developed countries include higher demand for new and advanced prenatal and neonatal care equipment coupled with replacement of older equipment in various hospitals, increasing incidence of preterm birth, and increasing age of maternal population.
      • With the advancements in modern prenatal imaging, the identification of congenital birth defects or fetal malformations has increased. In the United States, congenital birth defects and fetal malformations are identified in 3% of babies born.
  • On the other hand, the rapid growth in the emerging countries of the Asia Pacific region driven by increasing incidence of premature birth, high birth rates, expanding population growth, increasing demand for advanced products, and increasing availability, awareness and adoption of prenatal and neonatal care products.
    • The rapid advances in imaging techniques and prenatal diagnosis over the last three decades have allowed for the progressive development of prenatal interventions and surgeries and today they have become an integral part of the management of high risk pregnancies.
