Published | 01 June 2021

A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting revealed that the global fetal monitoring market was worth USD 3.2 billion in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The fetal monitoring market has grown dramatically in recent years as a result of rapid technology improvements and increased awareness regarding maternal and fetal health. Additionally, the rise in the number of ectopic pregnancies, post-term pregnancies, and premature delivery cases, is also assisting in driving the growth of the market. Fetal monitoring systems include uterine contraction examination devices, fetal heart rate, and fetal movement detection equipment, all of which are necessary for prenatal care, thereby making them popular among obstetricians.

Government initiatives and rising awareness regarding fetal and maternal health propelling the market

The increased awareness regarding fetal and maternal health, which includes both pre-and post-partum care, has greatly accelerated the growth of the fetal monitoring market. Additionally, the rise in various physiological disorders in infants and fetuses has also led to the growth of the fetal monitoring market. Furthermore, both government and non-government healthcare organizations are launching a variety of programs and initiatives to raise awareness regarding fetal and maternal health among the general public, particularly in developing countries. Also, rising manufacturer awareness and their willingness to invest in the development of fetal monitoring systems is greatly accelerating the growth of the fetal monitoring market.

The rise in demand for fetal monitoring during the gestation period is expected to drive the market growth

The surge in the number of preterm births, coupled with technological advancements has led to the growing popularity of fetal monitoring during pregnancy, which is expected to propel the growth of the market in the future. Additionally, a spike in infant hemorrhage rates and an increase in the demand for fetal monitoring supplements are contributing to the growth of the fetal monitoring market. Furthermore, technical improvements such as the introduction of wireless, handheld, and portable goods and technologies have led to an increase in the use of fetal monitoring devices in small maternity clinics, hence boosting the fetal monitoring market.

Global Fetal Monitoring Market by End-User

Based on end-user, the global fetal monitoring market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, and others. Among these, the hospital segment accounted for the largest share in the fetal monitoring market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to various factors, such as the surge in the number of pregnancy procedures and highly advanced facilities in hospitals. Moreover, non-invasive and doppler procedures have gained favor among obstetricians as a result of technological improvements. Furthermore, the growing number of government campaigns promoting prenatal care, fetal and maternal health, coupled with government funding, have prompted hospitals to install advanced devices and fetal monitoring systems, which in turn is driving the growth of the global fetal monitoring market.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19-induced pandemic has affected almost every market and the fetal monitoring market is no exception. The global impact of COVID-19 has no doubt, increased the demand for fetal monitoring systems for monitoring the health of the fetus as well as determining whether the infant is infected with the coronavirus. However, there have been adverse impacts as well, such as the drastic rescheduling of appointments to comply with safety precautions soon after the COVID outbreak, which resulted in a decline in the number of patients in hospitals for fetal monitoring procedures. Furthermore, regions that have been severely affected by COVID-19, had to even cancel fetal monitoring procedures due to new government directives. Hence, the fetal monitoring market has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic

The Asia-Pacific fetal monitoring market is growing rapidly

Based on region, the fetal monitoring market can be grouped into North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle-East & Africa.

Moreover, the Asia-Pacific is the most densely populated region, especially countries like India and China which are the most populated in the world.
