Obstetric Suction Cups Market to Deliver Positive Growth Results Until 2026


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2019 -- Obstructive suction cups are used to assist women during parturition. They are also known as vacuum extractors. This soft and rigid cup is applied to the fetal head, in the birth canal. The suction cup is powered by an external source. Obstructive suction is basically carried out during the contraction while the mother pushes the baby out. Obstetric suction cups are used when the baby has descended into the birth canal and the mother is not able to push the baby out. Additionally, they are used when the cervix gets dilated and the membrane has ruptured. Vacuum cup-assisted delivery should be performed in case of specific indications such as maternal illness, prolonged second stage of labor, and when the fetal status is non-reassuring. In case of fetal demineralization disease, fetal bleeding diathesis, and suspected fetal-pelvic disproportion, the vacuum extractor should not be used. Additionally, vacuum-assisted delivery is contraindicated if the gestation period is less than 34 weeks.

Report Overview:

Increase in the rate of incidence of physical injuries including lacerations and tears to the injured pelvic organ, mostly among primigravidae i.e. first-time mothers, is likely to propel the global market for obstetric suction cups during the forecast period. Moreover, increase in the incidence of preterm births among other gynecological issues and rise in the number of assisted deliveries are anticipated to drive the market between 2018 and 2026. However, stringent regulations regarding efficacy, safety, and accuracy of medical devices imposed by various health care organizations is likely to restrain the market during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 15 million preterm birth estimated in every year.

The global obstetric suction cups market can be segmented based on product, type of delivery, end-user, and region. In terms of product, the obstetric suction cups market can be divided into malmstrom cup, bird's cup, and soft cup. Among these, the soft cup segment is estimated to expand significantly and its growth can be attributed to increase in the incidence of preterm births. In terms of type of delivery, the obstetric suction cups market can be segmented into normal and caesarean. Increase in the number of C-section deliveries and rise in the preference for caesarean deliveries by mothers are factors likely to propel the caesarean segment during the forecast period. In terms of end-user, the obstetric suction cups market can be segmented into hospitals, clinics, and others.
