Europe Fetal and Neonatal Care Equipment Market-Market Dynamics

Europefetal and neonatal care equipment market is expected to witness a rapid growth during the (2017 - 2022) period. Fetal and neonatal care equipment are vital tools being used with increasing frequency for the prevention and evaluation of diseases and in the prenatal and postnatal care of newborn infants. A major driving factor for the market growth is that the European countries face common challenges related to the health of mothers and babies and some risk factors associated with perinatal health, such as older age at childbirth or maternal obesity. Another factor is that European countries face similar economic and demographic pressures and share an interest in monitoring their impact on health outcomes nationally and across Europe. Increasing demand for improved and technologically advanced fetal and neonatal care equipment also propels the market growth.

However, the market is constrained by the prevalence of low birth rates in certain developed countries. Neonatal mortality rates ranged from 1.2 per 1000 live births in Iceland to 4.5 in Malta and 5.5 in Romania. After excluding births and deaths before 24 weeks of gestation, these rates fell, ranging from 0.8 per 1000 live births in Iceland to 4.3 in Romania. Preterm babies born before 28 weeks of gestational age constitute over one-thirds of all deaths. In England and Wales, there were 3,558 stillbirths in 2012 - a stillbirth rate of 4.9 per 1,000 live births. This had dropped from 5.3 in 2011. The number of stillbirths were seento be significantly higher in England, where the growth restriction was not detected antenatally.

The percentage of live births with a birth weight under 2500g varied from under four to over nine percent in Europe. France had the highest fertility rate of 2.03 in 2010, followed by the UK and Sweden (1.98). There have been profound advances in the fields of prenatal diagnosis and fetal intervention. Ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, fetal Dopplers, infant warmers & incubators, phototherapy equipment, and respiratory assistance & monitoring devices are the major market segments, accounting for almost half of the market share.

The market is segmented by product type into three major segments: prenatal and fetal equipment, neonatal equipment, and other prenatal, fetal & neonatal equipment. By geography, the market is segmented into the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Italy, and Spain. France is the largest market share holder for the fetal and neonatal care equipment, followed by the UK and Sweden.
