However, factors such as pediatric device development challenges and lack of skilled professionals are expected to hamper growth of the global pediatric medical devices market.

Global Pediatric Medical Devices Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the pediatric medical devices market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period owing to the increasing burden of disease in pediatric populations and increase in focus on pediatric healthcare in the region. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 8.4% (or over 6 million) of children in the United States have asthma. Asthma is a chronic disease that has a high morbidity rate and a comparatively low mortality rate overall. Asthma is a serious disease causing wheezing, difficulty breathing, and coughing. Over a lifetime, it can cause permanent lung damage.

Europe is also expected to witness robust growth in the global pediatric medical devices market due to the rising incidence of chronic illnesses in children and increase in awareness among people in this region. For instance, according to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (the professional body for paediatricians in the U.K.), asthma is the most common long term condition among children and young people, with 1.1 million children currently receiving asthma treatment. Moreover, it continues to be among the top 10 causes of emergency hospital admission for children and young people in the U.K., driving the market growth.

Global Pediatric Medical Devices Market Drivers:

High prevalence of chronic diseases to propel market growth

One of the key factors expected to propel the growth of the global pediatric medical devices market over the forecast period is the rising prevalence of chronic diseases among the pediatric population. For instance, according to the UNICEF (an agency of the United Nations), November 2019 report, pneumonia claims the life of a child every 39 seconds on the world. Most of these deaths occurred under the age of two and nearly 153,000 newborns die due to pneumonia within a month of his or her birth. This in turn is driving the growth of the market.

Increase in focus on pediatric healthcare to drive market growth

Another factor which is driving the growth of the global pediatric medical devices market is the increase in focus on pediatric healthcare. For instance, due to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases among the pediatric population, market players and several governments worldwide are focusing on improving healthcare infrastructure for pediatrics. In May 2021, the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) launched a learning community that will work with 12 leading pediatric practices, a team of six family advisors, and experts in the field from across the nation to advance innovations for providing more equitable and family-focused care.

Global Pediatric Medical Devices Market Opportunities:

Increase in demand for pediatric medical devices worldwide is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players in the global pediatric medical devices market. For instance, the demand for pediatric medical devices has increased or is increasing due to increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in pediatric population. In February 2022, Masimo announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of SedLine brain function monitoring for pediatric patients (1-17 years of age) and the SedLine Pediatric EEG Sensor. With this clearance, the potential benefits of SedLine have been expanded to all patients one year old and above in the U.S.

Increase in research and development (R&D) across the globe is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global pediatric medical devices market. For instance, cutting-edge research and advanced technologies have led to the development of numerous innovative medical devices, enabling pediatric patients to live healthier/longer lives. In January 2022, Good Parents raised around US$ 16 million in a Series A funding round that was spearheaded by Vive Collective. Children with diseases such as asthma, diabetes, autism, and congenital heart defects can use the company's platform for remote pediatric patient monitoring.

Global Pediatric Medical Devices Market Trends:

Increase in number of clinical trials is a recent trend

The demand for pediatric medical devices is increasing due to growing burden of chronic diseases among children, high premature birth rates, and rise in birth defects among newborns. According to the National Clinical Trial Registry, as of October 15, 2020, there were 18 ongoing clinical trials related to pediatric medical devices, across different phases of development, for various diseases in the pediatric population. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.

Increase in focus on disease diagnosis is another trend

Early, screening and imaging process enables quick identification of any underlying condition. For instance, according to the international medical journal, children with chronic diseases can recover with early disease detection. It is possible through greater exposure to pediatric care. This in turn is expected to increase the demand for pediatric medical devices across the globe. This trend is also expected to continue during the forecast period, driving the market growth.

Global Pediatric Medical Devices Market Restraints:

Pediatric device development challenges to hinder market growth

One of the key factors expected to hamper growth of the global pediatric medical devices market is the pediatric device development challenges faced by market players. The primary challenge in the development of pediatric devices is that the production of pediatric medical devices is a time-consuming process. In 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) highlighted the challenges involved in developing pediatric devices, such as difficulties in running clinical trials owing to a small patient population with a particular disease.

Lack of skilled professionals to hamper the market growth

Another factor that is hampering the growth of the global pediatric medical devices market is the lack of skilled professionals to use/handle pediatric medical devices. The need to understand and operate medical devices requires some technical knowledge, and some paediatrician lack skills to operate pediatric devices. As a result, some paediatrician worldwide use alternative adult devices to treat pediatric patients. For instance, a pediatric cardiologist often uses an adult biliary stent off-label to treat pediatric patient with a congenital heart disease.
