Code: BMIRE00026489 | Pages: 100 | Industry: Medical Device | Date: Sep 2022 | Type: Global

The market crossed US$ 3.36 billion mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 6.20 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 7.9 % during the forecast period.

Increasing birth rates is expected to drive the overall market growth during forecast period

The boost in fetal monitoring market is due to the increased birth rate and pre-term births. According to the Macrotrends LLC, the current birth rate globally in 2022 is 17.668 births per 1000 people, a 1.15% decline from 2021. Various government and non-governmental organizations actively take initiatives to provide better maternal and fetal care for the overall population. However, a rise in the number of problems during pregnancy due to high blood pressure, diabetes, and pre-term labor medicine affect the fetus. So, fetal monitoring devices are used routinely by gynecology and obstetrics interventions to examine fetal health during labor and delivery. Thus, there is a high demand for fetal monitoring device, which is expected to boost market growth.

Within the report, the market is segmented into product, portability, method, application, end user, and geography. By product, the market is further segmented into ultrasound devices, (2D ultrasound, 3D & 4D ultrasound, doppler imaging), electronic maternal/fetal monitors, uterine contraction monitors (internal uterine contraction monitors and external uterine contraction monitors), fetal electrodes, fetal doppler devices, telemetry devices, and accessories & consumables. Based on portability, the market is further bifurcated into portable systems and non-portable systems. Based on method, the market is further divided into invasive and non-invasive. On the application, the market is bifurcated into antepartum and intrapartum. Based on end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, obstetrics & gynecology clinics, home care settings, others. Geographically, the market is subsegmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and the Middle East & Africa.

Technological developments is expected to propel the overall market growth in future years

In May 2021, a team of researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has developed a new ultrasound technique to monitor the placenta for impaired fetal blood flow early in pregnancy. The technology uses conventional ultrasound equipment, relies on subtle differences in the pulsation of fetal blood through the arteries at the fetal and placental ends of the umbilical cord, potentially enabling physicians to identify placental abnormalities that impair fetal blood flow and, if necessary, deliver the fetus early. Like current ultrasound techniques, the new technique can also detect impaired flow of maternal blood through the placenta. Also, the development of portable, non-invasive fetal monitors will drive the overall market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in June 2020, the researchers of University of California, Davis developed a device that directly measured blood oxygen saturation in a fetus during labor. Such developments has the assisted the growth of fetal monitoring market in the recent past and is expected to follow a similar trend during the forecast period. The Philips CTG, Avalon FM fetal and maternal monitors are offered by Philips that are automated in nature and incorporates coincidence detection (cross-channel verification) using Smart Pulse. It measures the fetal & maternal heart rates separately to enhance diagnostic confidence and improve patient outcomes. Some other brands that are included in our research scope are Agatige, Aquasonic, Parker Labs, Babysense, Sense-U, Clearblue, Lollipop, Owlet, Nora, HUBBLE CONNECTED, Gender Prediction Kit, Gender Predictors, and WORTRIBET. 

Hospitals captured the largest share in 2022

Hospital segment captured the largest share in 2022. This segment's growth can be attributed to several factors, such as highly advanced facilities in hospitals and the increasing number of pregnancy procedures. Technological advancements, coupled with government funding, are also encouraging the installation of new tools and devices in hospitals, thus supporting market growth. In the early 2020, there were approximately 64,000 fetal monitors in more than 4100 hospitals in the U.S., representing an initial investment of more than US$ 1500 million.

Recent strategic developments in fetal monitoring market

The fetal monitoring market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In February 2022, CooperSurgical acquired Cook Medical's Reproductive Health Division to expand its offerings of ob-gyn and fertility medical devices. Through this expansion, the company is improving its international fertility footprint, especially within the Asia-Pacific region, and adding highly synergistic and respected labor and delivery devices to the ObGyn portfolio.
  • In June 2021, Remote pregnancy monitoring company Nuvo Group announced the FDA supplemental 510(k) clearance to add a new uterine activity module to its INVU system. INVU is a physician-prescribed, wearable pregnancy monitoring system    .


The fetal monitoring market is driven by several players by implementing strategic activities such as investments, new launches, mergers & acquisitions, and partnerships. Cardinal Health, Inc.; Koninklijke Philips N.V.; GE Healthcare; Siemens Healthineers; FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc.; Natus Medical Incorporated; Huntleigh Healthcare Limited; The Cooper Companies Inc.; and CONTEC Medical Systems Co., Ltd. are among the prominent players operating in the market.
