In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increasing cases of
preterm births and stillbirths across the world as a key factor
contributing to the growth of the global fetal monitoring bands market:

Increasing cases of preterm births and
stillbirths worldwide

A premature birth, which is also known as a preterm birth, can be
defined as a birth that takes place more than three weeks before the
estimated date of delivery. It can occur before the start of the 37th
week or after 259 days of gestation instead of 40 weeks that is the
usual period of pregnancy. A premature birth allows the newborn lesser
time to develop in the womb. Premature babies usually have health
problems, particularly those babies who are born the earliest. Most of
the health problems associated with preterm births can be easily
diagnosed using fetal monitoring devices.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for patient
monitoring devices
, “Contraction monitoring sensors and fetal
heart rate sensors are usually used to measure the vital signs of the
fetus and the mother. These sensors are held in place using fetal
monitoring bands. Fetal monitoring devices are used to monitor the fetus
for both antepartum and intrapartum periods. The use of fetal monitoring
bands has increased due to the increasing number of preterm births.”

According to a study, it was estimated that in 2015 there were more than
3,600 stillbirths in the UK and one in every 200 births ended in a
stillbirth. It also estimated that about 10% of the stillborn babies
suffered from congenital disability that contributed to the death.
Similarly, in 2015, the rate of stillbirths in England and Wales was
estimated to be 4.5 per 1,000 total births. It was also projected that
pregnant women aged 45 years and above had the highest rate of
stillbirths in 2015, with 12.7 stillbirths per 1,000 total births.
