San Mateo, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- The global fetal and neonatal monitoring devices market on the basis of product types can be categorized into ultrasound fetal dopplers, fetal heart rate monitors, intrauterine pressure catheters, fetal pulse oximeters and neonatal monitoring devices. Due their ease of availability, high awareness about related technologies and affordability, ultrasound fetal dopplers are commonly used in developed countries such as United States, Japan, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and France and others. On the other hand, fetal heart rate monitors do not use doppler ultrasound technology but utilize amplification of acoustics created by heartbeats or through direct contact in case of intrapartum monitors. The market for fetal monitors has steadily been on the rise as awareness in childcare and pediatric care increases.

Geographically, the major revenue earning regions are the developed countries and regions such as United States, Canada, Japan and the European Union. In addition, growth in emerging economies of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East is expected to be driven by the rise in populations, rising birth rates, increase in demand for technologically advanced fetal monitoring products and an improvement in the healthcare infrastructure in these regions.

In terms of overall competition, the global fetal and neonatal monitoring devices is fragmented and highly competitive in nature and is characterized by the presence of many small and large manufacturers. Companies such as Philips Healthcare (over 20% market share), Draeger Medical, SpaceLabs Healthcare, Masimo, Summit Doppler (Wallach) currently dominate this market. Some of the other small but remarkable contributors to this market include companies such as BabyBeat, SonoTrax, Nonin, Nellcor and others.

Fetal monitoring is a vital analytical tool used for ensuring the health of fetus during pregnancy and delivery. Fetal monitors are conventionally used for monitoring of the vital signs of fetus such as heart rate, physical movements, uterine contraction and others. Accurate monitoring of vital signs and movements of fetus assists in enabling prompt physician intervention and thereby prevents the risk of happening of acute conditions.

Growth in the rate of delayed pregnancies and the resultant growth in the incidence of conditions such as cardiopulmonary diseases, need for ventilation and warming solutions and others is one of the major drivers contributing to the growth in demand for fetal monitoring devices worldwide. Furthermore, technological advancements such as introduction of wireless handheld monitoring devices and availability of low cost solutions serve as a potential opportunity serving the growth in demand for fetal and neonatal monitoring devices.
