Rising investment in healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, increasing demand for minimally invasive techniques and increasing number of complicated pregnancy worldwide are major driving forces for this market. Intrapartum monitors are used for analyzing the duration and strength of uterus contractions and monitoring vital signs of the fetus during pregnancy. Both internal and external monitoring can be done using these monitors. With the help of special stethoscopes or sensors inserted into uterus through vagina and cervix and electrode attached to fetus scalp internal monitoring is also possible. Any complication in fetal heart rate (FHR) can be identified and treatment can be initiated with the use of these monitors. Maternal oxygenation and intravenous fluid administration are the initial interventions to any complication. Intrapartum monitors market is dynamic and is in growing phase due to the continuous R & D carried out.
In an attempt to improve the intermittent auscultation in fetal surveillance continuous intrapartum monitoring devices were introduced. Intrapartum monitors market is segmented into remote fetal monitoring devices, fetal Doppler’s and electronic fetal monitoring. The fetal monitoring devices are further sub segmented into handheld ultrasonic scanners, fetal scalp electrodes and FHR using electrodes. Fetal monitoring devices have the largest market share as these are predominantly used to identify any severe conditions such as cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischemia encephalopathy or even fetal death. With the help of transducers continuous fetal monitoring is also possible.
The regional segments of intrapartum monitors market are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and RoW. North America dominates this market followed by Europe due to changing lifestyle, delayed pregnancy, increasing obesity and high awareness rates. Asia Pacific is expected to register a remarkable growth owing to improvement in healthcare infrastructure, rising spending in healthcare segment, preterm birth, new establishments of healthcare and diagnostic centers, and increased access to healthcare services. Asia Pacific and RoW are expected to show higher growth rate owing to lower awareness levels. Key players of intrapartum monitors market includes Terason Ultrasound, Huntleigh Sonicaid, Med Electronics, Natus Medical Inc, Allen Medical Instruments Corporation, Paramed Medical system, Analogic Corporation, Mediana Co. Ltd. Neoventa Medical AB, Spacelabs, Philips Healthcare, GE Healthcare, EDAN instruments and Wallach Surgical devices.
