The major trend driving the growth of the neonatal & prenatal devices market is the rising burden of preterm births in the UAE region. Premature babies are babies born before the mother reaches the gestation period of 37 weeks. Depending on how premature the baby is, there are certain organs, which can be underdeveloped, such as the digestive tract, lungs, immune system, and even skin in certain cases, where the demand of incubators for their survival is inevitable. Preterm births are quite common around the world, irrespective of developed and emerging markets. According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, in UAE, an estimated 8,826 babies are born too early in 2017. Some statistics show the growing burden of premature babies and how it increases the demand for incubators.
Furthermore, owing to the rapid evolution of the market in the use of new technology and medical device companies which are focussing to launch new innovative equipment with huge benefits, increasing awareness for neonatal & prenatal care, rising incidence of preterm births and increased demand of prenatal therapeutics, diagnostics and monitoring devices are the major factors driving the growth of this market in UAE region.
Key Market Trends
Incubators are expected to witness high CAGR over the forecast period.
The infants are taken care in the incubators, also known as “open warmers”. The neonatal incubators are often necessary for infants which needs respiratory support ranging from extra oxygen (by head hood or nasal cannula) to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or mechanical ventilation. The temperature regulation of infants is among the major factors to be controlled in the neonatal incubator cases. The companies varies the devices on several parameters, among which, temperature regulation is very important as severe temperature differences lead to neonate heat loss, hypothermia, and apnea, which are closely related to air flow and air velocity.
The major market players in UAE Neonatal and Prenatal Devices are focusing on elaborating their portfolio of services and products, companies are also adopting various growth strategies such as partnerships, agreements, mergers and acquisitions in order to strengthen their market presence in UAE Neonatal and Prenatal Devices market. In January 2019, A womb-like incubator that could greatly minimize the lifelong impacts of severe infant prematurity in infants has been launched by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP). The incubator has been launched in cooperation with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
