Outlook of Neonatal Care Equipment Market: Focus on Ventilators
Modern mechanical ventilation was introduced in 1960 and soon introduced in neonatal care market for premature infants, especially suffering from hyaline membrane disease. Neonatal Ventilator market has been growing ever since.
Neonatal Ventilator market has seen a boom with more number of premature infants born each year. It became very evident that most premature infants born before 30 weeks' gestation period needed to receive some form of respiratory support. Neonatal ventilators are not just used for premature organ development of these infants but they also help support the lungs of infants suffering from specific lung diseases. For example, neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is one such restrictive lung disease developed basically due to lung immaturity and insufficient surfactant. Babies born with RDS need supplemental surfactant and a ventilator to help them breathe.
Neonatal care also involves other essential healthcare equipments besides a ventilator. These products of neonatal care equipment market
include but are not limited to blood pressure monitor, C-PAP, bililights, endotracheal tube, incubators, cardiopulmonary monitor, IV line, oxygen hood, pulse oximeter, radiant warmer, nasal cannula / nasal prongs, respirator and umbilical catheter. It is observed that preterm birth is a serious pediatric health problem in the U.S. and is one of the primary causes of infant mortality in the country. Accounting for roughly 13% of total births and about 17% of infant deaths occurring, preterm births cost the nation no less than $25 billion every year. The condition is on an alarming rise due to factors such as labour treatments, poor prenatal care, induced fertility, inappropriate maternal age, obesity, and alcohol consumption.
Driven by innovation combined with R&D and technology, the industry for neonatal care equipment and specifically global neonatal ventilators market has witnessed significant growth in recent past. While the increasing prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will continue to be the primary driver of neonatal ventilators market growth, new technologies will also make a continuous and important contribution. Another key reason for the growth of the neonatal ventilators market is the increasing preference for home-care ventilators and portable ventilators.
New product launches and technology upgradation are the two important strategies being adopted by global players to stay competitive in this neonatal ventilator and overall neonatal equipment care market. The U.S. market for preterm care equipment like neonatal care ventilators and other devices is mature and segmented , with numerous players offering both basic and sophisticated equipments at affordable rates
