Heel incision devices are precise and safe medical devices specifically designed for infants. These devices provide an effective means of taking blood samples from the heels of preterm and newborn babies. Heel incision devices are used by neonatal professionals and caregivers. With these devices, babies do not have to bear re-sticking every time a blood sample is taken. Heel incision devices help in assessing and monitoring the health of premature babies. In addition, they help in the screening of different diseases and conditions, which can be diagnosed using blood samples from newborns.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

  • COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in the Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is transmitted from human to human. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020. 
  • Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing a shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected to witness significant growth in the future, owing to the demand for vaccines and treatment drugs for COVID-19. 
  • With COVID-19, the supply chain of the material required to manufacture heel incision devices has been disrupted in many countries. In addition, the market growth of heel incision devices is declining as the manufacturers of these medical devices have slowed down their production due to the pandemic. Therefore, COVID 19 is expected to have a significant impact on the heel incision devices market.

Top Impacting Factors
Increase in cases of preterm and premature births all across the world is fueling the growth of the heel incision devices market. This is attributed to the fact that heel incision devices are often used to take blood samples in such cases.
Newly developed heel incision devices come with improvements in their design, and are highly accurate and efficient, which help them to monitor babies born preterm. This factor has fueled the growth of the heel incision devices market.
In addition, rise in awareness regarding infant care products, which include heel incision devices is one of the factors that boosts the growth of the global heel incision devices market.
However, high cost associated with heel incision devices and the lack of skilled professionals who can handle these devices in developing nations are the factors that impede the heel incision devices market.
Key Market Trends

  • The newborns segment dominates the heel incision devices market, as doctors prefer screening newborns in the first two days after birth to diagnose diseases and conditions.
  • In terms of end user, the hospitals segment is projected to hold a major share of the heel incision devices during the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that heel incision devices are often used in hospitals where they monitor premature babies.
  • North America held a major market share of the heel incision devices market in 2020, owing to the mandatory newborn screening required in hospitals, as the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act has been implemented across the region.
