Fetal Monitoring Systems Market to reach a value of ~US$ 3.8 Bn by the end of 2030

Non-invasive Wearable Devices Trigger Adoption of Fetal Monitoring Systems

Wearable devices and non-invasive are trending in the healthcare sector. Hence, companies are harnessing advantages of wearable devices in fetal monitoring systems. For instance, a provider of non-invasive technologies Nemo Healthcare announced the launch of Nemo Fetal Monitoring System-a novel wearable device that accurately provides information on fetal and maternal health rate.

Companies in the fetal monitoring systems market are increasing the availability of advanced systems that provide data on fetal, maternal, and uterine activity in a single measurement. This indicates that healthcare companies are focusing on developing systems that suit the convenience of clinicians and patients. Wearable devices are acquiring prominence in the fetal monitoring systems market, owing to their advantages in context to safer births and healthier children.

High prevalence of women with high body mass index has triggered the demand for wearable devices. Non-invasive fetal monitoring systems are growing popular, since they help clinicians to intervene in time to prevent any damage that might occur to the unborn child.

EFM Combined with Machine Learning Help Extract New Discriminating Information

Electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is becoming increasingly mainstream in the healthcare sector. This trend of EFM has given rise to non-invasive assessment via Doppler ultrasound sensor or by means of fetal ECG (Electrocardiogram) sensor on the fetal scalp. Since external mode segment of the fetal monitoring systems market is projected for exponential growth during the forecast period, companies are strengthening the supply chain for intrauterine pressure sensors to efficiently measure uterine pressure. As such, external sensors are being increasingly used to monitor abdominal wall tension.

Companies in the fetal monitoring systems market need to abide by the guidelines issued by the International Federation of Gynecology & Obstetrics and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecology to innovate in approaches toward the EFM analysis. Healthcare companies are increasing R&D to gain expertise in modern signal-processing techniques in order to extract new discriminating information that has not been considered before in healthcare. Developments are being made in machine learning research to examine larger sets of correlated features.

Flexible US Transducer Array Measure FHR Independent of FHL

Fetal heart rate (FHR) monitoring using Doppler ultrasound (US) is a common practice to evaluate fetal health via fetal monitoring systems. Hence, companies in the fetal monitoring systems market are increasing the availability of US transducers to efficiently monitor fetal health. However, fetal movement or displacement of the transducer with respect to the fetal heart location (FHL) can lead to issues of frequent signal loss. Frequent repositioning of the US transducer is a cumbersome task, which affects the clinical workflow. Hence, companies in the fetal monitoring systems market are introducing flexible US transducer array to measure FHR independent of the FHL.

Dynamic adaptation of transmission power in the flexible US transducer array has helped to reduce the total acoustic dose transmitted to the fetus. Innovations in the array has catalyzed the demand for fetal monitoring systems, since reduction in power consumption is important for application in ambulatory settings. Healthcare providers are aiming toward computerized analysis of accurate and robust recording of the FHR.

Central and Bedside Fetal Surveillance Systems Allow Efficient Integration with EMRs

The trend of central and bedside fetal surveillance and documentation is surrounding the fetal monitoring systems market. This is evident since hospitals & nursing homes end user segment is expected to lead the fetal monitoring systems market. The global fetal monitoring systems market is estimated to reach a value of ~US$ 3.8 Bn by the end of 2027. Thus, companies are working closely with clinicians to design advanced fetal monitoring systems.

Bedside clinicians, physicians, and nurse managers are increasingly benefiting with the help of central and bedside fetal surveillance in order to document and share vital information to enhance clinical outcomes. There is a growing demand for fetal monitoring systems that easily integrate with electronic medical records (EMRs), thus alleviating the need for cumbersome screen toggling and double entry of data. Companies are developing advanced systems that monitor multiple patients at a given time. This has helped to streamline the workflow in hospital and other healthcare environments.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The uptake of fetal monitoring systems is growing in clinics and home settings. This is evident after the introduction of non-invasive wearable devices. Companies are entering into cooperation agreement to sell systems that are pending with the FDA clearance. For instance, in June 2019, Clinical Computer Systems, Inc-a provider of electronic fatal surveillance services, announced a cooperation agreement with the Huntleigh Healthcare Limited, the supplier of high quality medical equipment, to sell OBIX BeCA Fetal Monitor, which is pending for FDA 510K approval in the U.S.

EFM has helped to reduce hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy in infants. However, EFM is subject to debate in inter- and intra-subject variation in its interpretation. Hence, companies in the fetal monitoring systems market are increasing their efficacy in machine learning research to improve patient outcomes via EFM.

Fetal Monitoring Systems Market: Overview

Fetal monitoring is the core of standard fetal monitoring both before and during labor. Fetal monitoring systems produce a continuous paper strip, showing graphs of the fetal heart rate and uterine contractions. In labor, the response of the fetal heart rate to contractions is of particular importance. The market for fetal monitoring systems is likely to expand significantly, as preterm birth continues to be a global concern.

During birth, the stress of contractions and descent through the birth canal can reduce a baby’s oxygen supply. Most babies can recover and cope. However, each year, around 250 babies in the U.K. die from birth asphyxia (suffocation).

Diagnosis of fetal distress depends mostly on the paper record of the fetal heart taken electronically during labor

Fetal Monitoring Systems Market: Drivers

According to the WHO, preterm birth, intrapartum-related complications (birth asphyxia or lack of breathing at birth), infections, and birth defects cause most neonatal deaths. Rise in complications during pregnancy such as prolonged labor, cesarean section delivery, and fetal distress were the determinants of birth asphyxia. This factor boosts the demand for fetal monitoring, thereby increasing the demand for fetal monitoring systems.

Technological advancements in wearable diagnostic medical devices have led to rise in adoption of fetal monitors among doctors as well as patients. This is estimated to offer significant opportunities to the fetal monitoring systems market.

Moreover, according to the WHO, preterm birth is a global concern and affects more than 15 million babies, globally per year. This is likely to drive the demand for fetal monitoring systems.
