The rise in infant mortality and preterm births globally are propelling the intrapartum monitoring devices market. The lack of access to appropriate maternal care facilities and disparities of income in different regions leads to a difference in mortality rates across the world. The developing countries face the greater challenges of infant mortality owing to the presence of lower-income groups, lack of infant care facilities, and unmet needs for obstetric care. According to the statistics of WHO, the presence of effective postnatal, natal, and maternal care can facilitate the survival of 3 quarters of premature babies reducing the overall mortality rate. Moreover, increasing demand for maternity care devices is also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
Key Market Trends
Electrodes Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Intrapartum Monitoring Devices Market
Based on product type, it is segmented into electrodes and monitors. The electrodes are further segmented into an intrauterine pressure catheter, a transducer for Fetal Heart Rate, a transducer for uterine contractions and fetal scalp electrodes. The electrodes in intrapartum monitoring are either externally attached or minimally invasive for monitoring. The high growth of the electrodes is attributed to their higher adoption rates, rising preterm birth, and increasing diabetes cases in women. According to the International Diabetes Federation, 1 in 6 births was affected by gestational diabetes in 2019. Hence, the rising cases of gestational diabetes mellitus lead to high demand for these monitoring devices and is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.
North America is Expected to Dominate the Intrapartum Monitoring Devices Market
North America currently dominates the intrapartum monitoring devices market and is expected to continue the same trend in the forecast period. The dominance of this region can be attributed to the rising prevalence of gynecological diabetes mellitus, and growing cases of obesity. The women suffering from gynecological diabetes mellitus are also prone to intrapartum issues and preterm deliveries. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017 the premature birth rate was 9.93 percent of births, up slightly from 2016, when it was 9.85 percent. Hence, increasing prevalence of these diseases is expected to drive the market for intrapartum monitoring in North America.
The global players in the intrapartum monitoring devices market are Analogic Corporation, Cardinal Health, Cooper Companies, Inc., GE Healthcare, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Medtronic PLC, MindChild Medical, Olympus Corporation and Stryker Corporation.
