According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Fetal Monitoring Market is accounted for $2.89 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $4.96 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.02% during the forecast period. A fetal monitoring system is a diagnostic tool used to monitor the mother's contractions as well as the fetus's movement and heart rate. It's a simple device for monitoring uterine contractions during labour. It mainly keeps an eye on the health of the foetus and how labour is going. In medical terms, it is defined to as a medical procedure to examine an unborn child in order to ensure a safe delivery.

According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the demand for obstetrics and gynecology professionals is expected to increase from 50,850 to 52,660 (4%) by 2030.

Market Dynamics:


Rising number of preterm births

Preterm births are becoming more common due to a number of factors, such as high blood pressure, prolonged pre-labour membrane rupture, antepartum haemorrhage, multiple gestations, assisted reproductive technology, short cervixes, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and placenta previa, among others. As preterm births, have become more common, advanced medical technology has been included into foetal monitoring systems, which is driving market expansion.


Availability of refurbished products

The availability of refurbished fetal monitoring instruments is the main barrier to this market's expansion. In developing nations, which are price-sensitive marketplaces, many small and medium-sized hospitals choose refurbished systems for cost effectiveness. All of these refurbished items offer the same functionality as new items but do so at a lesser price because of these factors. This issue would hurt the bottom line for businesses selling branded fetal monitoring products on the market.


Rising number of government initiatives

The increase in government and non-government initiatives to raise awareness regarding foetal health is what is driving the market. A significant element affecting the market's growth will also be the increase in post-term pregnancy, multiple pregnancy, and premature birth instances. Additionally, the rise in changing lifestyles and rising infrastructure spending on healthcare are the main key drivers that will further accelerate the industry's expansion.


Lack of skilled healthcare professionals

Obstetrics, gynaecology, and other preventative and reproductive healthcare specialists who focus primarily on women's health are in limited supply. This suggests that efforts in obstetrics and gynaecology may increasingly concentrate on managing high-risk pregnancies, difficult gynaecological diseases, and surgical treatments. But the expensive expense of foetal monitoring apparatus would slow the market's expansion.

Covid-19 Impact

Fetal surveillance was among the businesses affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown. Because treatments were postponed and rescheduled for safety reasons, there were fewer hospital patients during the pandemic, which contributed to a fall in the number of fetal monitoring procedures. A comprehensive review of the patient's medical history preceded these delays, and, where it was feasible, the timing of the fetal monitoring was changed to lessen the risk of exposure during hospital visits. This causes the pandemic to negatively affect the sector.

The ultrasound devices segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The ultrasound devices segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. To study inside organs, an ultrasound device produces images. High-frequency sound waves are emitted by the apparatus, which the body's structures reflect. A computer detects the waves and utilises them to create a picture. Unlike an x-ray or a Computed Tomography (CT) scan, this diagnostic does not use ionising radiation. The images can be used for fetal monitoring as well as the diagnosis and planning of treatments for a wide range of illnesses and conditions.

The hospitals segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The hospitals segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to enhanced fetal monitoring devices provided by hospitals and availability of skilled physicians and infrastructure. The rise of the segment's revenue is being fueled by both the quantity of fetal monitoring devices installed in hospitals and the number of patients who visit the hospital for fetal monitoring.

Region with Largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to the governments empowering small setups for healthcare research by bringing many countries. An increase in government support for improved maternal facilities, such as grants granted to private, non-profit organisations to expand care in rural areas in nations with underdeveloped healthcare infrastructure.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to growth in awareness about fetal monitoring and increase in disposable incomes. The increased demand for sophisticated fetal monitoring gadgets is what's driving this region's market expansion. In addition, a rise in the number of pregnancies and developments in the medical industry have helped the market expand. The market is therefore anticipated to rise as more women become pregnant as a result of the large population.
