2014-01-29 08:48:03 - Fetal Monitors: A Global Strategic Business Report - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Driven by the promising potential in under-penetrated developing economies, the global Fetal Monitors market is projected to exceed US$634.9 million by 2018.
Fetal monitoring is an important tool for ensuring the well-being of the fetus and for maternal assessment during labor and delivery. Fetal monitors are primarily used in monitoring vital signs of fetus and mother including fetal heart rate, fetal movements and uterine contraction of the mother. Advanced models also help in monitoring maternal parameters including blood pressure, maternal heart rate, and maternal SpO2. Monitoring of fetus health helps in detecting events where timely intervention can prevent acute conditions such as hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, cerebral palsy or even fetal death.
With delayed pregnancies and advanced maternal age becoming increasingly common in
recent times, the need for continuous fetal monitoring is gaining prominence in Obstetrics. Also, rising incidences of cardio pulmonary diseases and increasing multiple and preterm births as a result of the growing success rate of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments is driving the demand for fetal monitoring. Another factor propelling growth is the anticipated increase in comprehensive, case-managed perinatal services. Further, the development of wireless handheld fetal monitors designed for remote monitoring of real time data is expected to augur well for market growth.
The United States represents the single largest market worldwide. However, the already mature market profile and declining birth rates has brought down the pace of growth in the market. Asia-Pacific is forecast to exhibit the fastest CAGR of about 5.6% over the analysis period, closely trailed by Latin America. Increasing demand for fetal monitors in these regions can be attributed to improvement in standards of care in obstetrics and gynecology and rising health awareness levels. Moreover, large population base and high birth rates in most developing nations provide lucrative opportunities for fetal monitor manufacturers. Global Industry Analysts Â©
