Report Overview

The global neonatal critical care equipment market size was valued at USD 644.6 million in 2019 and is expected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4% from 2020 to 2027. The high prevalence of neonatal jaundice, an increasing number of preterm births, and the introduction of new products for use in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) are expected to drive the market for neonatal critical care equipment.

U.S. neonatal critical care equipment market size

The market for neonatal critical care equipment is characterized by a high prevalence of neonatal jaundice globally. According to NCBI, in 2018, around 55.2% of neonates included in the study had developed jaundice. Also, as per The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Australia, Jaundice, or hyperbilirubinemia occurs in approximately 60.0% of full-term babies (and 80% of preterm babies) during the first week of life. As phototherapy equipment is employed as an effective treatment against neonatal jaundice, its increasing cases have a positive impact on the market for neonatal critical care equipment.

When a baby is born before completing the 37 weeks of pregnancy, it is called a preterm birth and is admitted to the NICU. As per the March of Dimes, a U.S. non-profit organization, among the total NICU admissions more than half comprised of pre-term babies. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2018, 1 out of every 10 infants was born prematurely. This results in increased NICU admission and a rise in the requirement of NICU facilities.

Public and private organizations are taking initiative to increase the availability of the NICUs to cope up with the requirement. For instance, in September 2017, BC Children's Hospital, Vancouver, announced to launch Teck Acute Care Centre and claimed to have North America’s first NICU to provide critical care to mothers and infants in the same room.

Monitoring equipment is one of the important neonatal critical care equipment of the NICU infrastructure. Hence key manufacturers are conducting research and development projects in order to launch innovative monitoring equipment for use in the neonatal intensive care unit. For instance, in June 2019, Masimo received a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the use of its O3 Regional Oximetry on neonatal patients.

Type Insights

The respiratory equipment segment dominated the market in terms of revenue share of 29.0% in 2019. The growth of the neonatal critical care equipment market is characterized by an increase in respiratory disorders requiring neonatal intensive care unit treatment and the launch of new products. For instance, in September 2018, the Augmented Infant Resuscitator (AIR) was launched by Koninklijke Philips N.V to aid in the resuscitation of the asphyxiated newborn babies. The product is developed by Philips in accordance with the Consortium for Affordable Medical Technologies (CAMTech), Massachusetts.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in terms of revenue share of 40.2% in the year 2019 owing to a huge demand for technologically advanced products ensuring better healthcare delivery for neonates. The value-based healthcare model has led to the development of well-equipped NICU centers along with an increasing number of approvals for neonatal critical care equipment from the FDA.

Global neonatal critical care equipment market share

In December 2019, U.K. National Health Service (NHS) in its Long Term Plan has decided to invest over a period of five years, with a focus on expanding and designing neonatal critical care equipment, development of the expert neonatal workforce, and enhancing the experience of patient’s family by improving parental accommodation.

In Asia Pacific, the market is likely to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 10.9% in the market for neonatal critical care equipment from 2020 to 2027. The growth of the market for neonatal critical care equipment is attributed to the high number of new births along with an increase in healthcare expenditure in the region. In addition, increasing government initiatives in developing countries such as India have established strong demand for neonatal critical care equipment and pediatric health equipment.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market for neonatal critical care equipment is characterized by the increase in NICU facilities and research and development leading to the launch of new products. For instance, in November 2016, a 105 bed NICU facility was launched in Mumbai, India. Also, medical service providers are adopting the use of advanced products in order to improve patient comfort. In May 2019, the NICU at St Peter’s Hospital announced the arrival of transport incubator system which is used for transport while admitting the babies to a NICU and post-discharge.
