Neonatal Intensive Care Market Research, 2031
The global neonatal intensive care market was valued at $2.0 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $4.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2022 to 2031. A neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), also known as an intensive care nursery (ICN), is an intensive care unit (ICU) specializing in the care of ill or premature newborn infants. Neonatal refers to the first 28 days of life. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is equipped with various advanced instruments such as infant ventilators, neonatal incubators and infant warmers.
The increase in the prevalence of neonatal hypothermia and rise in incidences of low birth weight of infants drives the Neonatal Intensive Care Market growth. Neonatal hypothermia is the reduction in the body temperature of the newborn (less than 36.5°C). The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides care for babies who are born prematurely (before 37 weeks gestation), with a medical condition that needs treatment, or at low birth weight. In addition, an increase in the prevalence of preterm birth rate drives the growth of the market. The key factors such as the medical condition of the mother, diabetes, drug consumption, alcoholism, and multiple pregnancies contribute to the increase in the prevalence of preterm birth.
Furthermore, the increasing risk of COVID-19 infection and other respiratory diseases in newborn babies drives the growth of the market. babies under age 1 might be at higher risk of severe illness with COVID-19 than older children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) surveillance report, from March 29–October 14, 2020, 923 newborns were born to women with COVID-19; among these newborns, 2.6% tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 after birth. Thus, the prevalence of respiratory diseases and the growing risk of COVID-19 infection propels the demand of neonatal incubators and infant ventilators.
Moreover, an increase in R&D activity for advancements in neonatal intensive care, and product approvals contribute to the growth of the market. For instance, in May 2022, Medtronic plc, a global leader in healthcare technology, received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granting 510(k) clearance for the Nellcor OxySoft SpO2 sensor.
The growing interest of manufacturers & developers in the development of neonatal intensive care and the latest product launch drives the growth of the Neonatal Intensive Care Industry. For instance, in November 2021, Medtronic plc, a global medical technology company, announced the U.S. commercial launch of the Carpediem Cardio-Renal Pediatric Dialysis Emergency Machine following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) marketing authorization. In addition, combined manufacturers' efforts for developing footprints in emerging market contributes to the growth of Neonatal Intensive Care Market size.
In addition, the increased need for the installation of NICU units and a rise in awareness among individuals regarding neonatal care is expected to boost the growth of the Neonatal Intensive Care Market size. Furthermore, growing concern for neonatal care contributes to the growth of the market.
