Neonatal care is a special type of care given to the premature baby with health complications such as difficulty in gaining weight or breathing problems. Neonates who require intensive medical care are often kept in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), present in the hospital. Most of the infants admitted to the NICU have low birth weight, are preterm (generally born before 37 weeks of pregnancy) or suffer from a health condition that needs special care. Premature babies need to stay in the NICU for a longer time, usually 2 to 3 weeks. The NICU is equipped with various types of neonatal infant care equipment such as infant warmers, incubators, phototherapy, monitors, ventilators, nasal cannula, and others. These types of equipment are majorly used to treat sick babies with many different problems. Moreover, neonatal (preterm) infant care market has witnessed robust transformation in treatment and increase in the number of devices volume units.

The history of neonatal intensive care market can be tracked back to late nineteenth century. Pierre-Constant Budin was a pioneer in the care of new-borns. Later in the 1970s scientists and doctors started writing on the care of premature babies. Until the mid- 20th century several children were sent back home without medical intervention. Then, Dr.Couney’s exhibitions brought awareness to the usefulness of incubators that further encouraged clinics and hospitals to adopt this technology. Later in 2000s, technological advancements and innovations aimed at development of superior instruments for effective infant care have provided significant benefits to the new-born babies.

Increasing number of pediatric clinics and neonatal intensive care units boosting neonatal infant care market revenue growth

Over the past few years, the limited number of pediatric clinics and neonatal intensive care units was considered a major concern across various countries. The dearth of numbers of neonatal nurses and specialists has resulted in various multi-chain hospitals to open pediatric clinics in various locations to improve access to children's hospitals or neonatal clinics. For instance, in 2015, Seattle Children’s Hospital announced the opening of the regional clinic, Seattle Children’s South Clinic, in Pierce and South King counties for better access to pediatric specialty clinicians and services. Furthermore, there is an increase in the number of neonatal intensive care units in community hospitals. This has further increased the installations of devices used for neonatal infant care treatment.

However, the high cost associated with the infant incubator may hinder the neonatal infant care market growth during the forecast timeframe. Also, the lack of accessibility for neonatal care in low-middle income countries will limit the industry demand.

Requirement for monitoring complications in premature neonates continues to drive volume sales

The neonatal infant care industry includes equipment used to treat and diagnose several fetal and neonatal diseases. Industry players provide a broad range of neonatal products such as thermoregulation devices, phototherapy devices, monitoring systems, neonatal hearing screening, neonatal infant resuscitator devices, and others. Some of the monitoring systems used for preterm infant care include ventilators, brain monitoring devices, blood gas monitoring systems, and others. The monitoring systems segment will witness around 6.5% CAGR owing to the rising incidence of infant diseases coupled with innovation in monitoring devices. Monitoring devices let nurses and doctors keep track of babies’ vital signs (like temperature, heart rate, and breathing) from any place in the NICU. Moreover, the increasing availability of FDA approved monitoring devices in the market boosts the segment growth.

Availability of advanced devices at hospital settings proves beneficial for the infant treatment
