The Global "Infant Radiant Warmer Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period of (2022 - 2029).
Infant Radiant Warmer has a cradle, on which an infant is placed, and a heater which releases radiant heat. It helps to provide sufficient temperature to the infants for ill infants who suffer from severe heat loss and who require continuous involvement of nurses.
In this, a heat shield of thin polyethylene film is used with a radiant warmer to reduce heat loss by convection and evaporation. It also has a skin temperature probe that always keeps track of the infant’s temperature.
The release of this radiant heat can be controlled manually or through baby mode for thermoregulation. Visual and audio alarms are present for safety.
This radiant warmer has a servo control which works like a thermostat that maintains a constant temperature(between 36.0 to 36.5c) in the area of a temperature probe that is present near the abdomen, and it is the more natural way to minimize the number of calories spent to maintain normal body temperature.
The global market for the Infant Radiant Warmer Market is primarily driven by the rise in premature and low birth weight rates, along with the growing incidence of infections acquired by the hospital environment.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015 there were 15million premature infants born globally, and the deaths related to premature birth were estimated to be about 1 million.
Other factors propelling the market is an increase in population growth, which leads to a rise in birth complications such as premature birth and low birth weight, Who stated that extended exposure of newborn infants to cold temperatures could induce hypoxia and hypoglycemia which can lead to death in some cases. These cases drive the demand or the Infant Radiant Warmer Market.
However, the high cost of infant radiant warmer and the risk of high exposure to heat may hinder the market progress.
By product type, the infant radiant warmer market is segmented into standard infant radiant warmers, mobile infant radiant warmers and wall mounted radiant infant warmers.
The standard infant radiant warmers are the dominated segment in the global infant bright warmer market. The main reason for this is the availability of these products at a low price compared to others, and these are easy to be controlled with one touch controls, and these helps in distributing heat evenly throughout the cradle/bed. Wall mount infant radiant warmers and mobile radiant warmers are easy to move because they are mounted on a set of small swiveling wheels. Wall mounted infant warmers are sub-divided into manual and automated warmers. In manual infant radiant warmers, it allows the Warmer to be kept ‘baby ready’ without nuisance alarms.
North America is the dominant share in the global infant radiant warmer market, and it is primarily attributed to factors such as the rise in infant birth rate, higher adoption of advanced equipment, and advanced hospital infrastructure.
According to the data from World Fact Book, in 2016 there are 12.6 premature births per 1,000 populations in the U.S. Moreover, the rising disposable income contributes to the growth of North America’s share.
Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, owing to the region’s rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure and the rising premature births in the area.
For instance, according to WHO in 2016, out of 27 million babies born in India, over 3.5 million were born prematurely.
Key players are adopting strategies such as mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and regional expansion to stand out as strong competitors in the market. New product launches along with an increased focus on R&D are other ways the leading players improve their market presence.
Key players in global infant radiant warmer market are GE Healthcare, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Phoenix Medical Systems Ltd., JW Medical, Drager, and Atom Medical among others.
In March 2018 Madison GE Healthcare Plant to has started making baby warming machines.
In December 2016 GE launched new low-cost infant warmers.
