The global neonatal ventilator market size was valued at USD 380.30 million in 2021. It is expected to reach USD 681.72 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period (2022–2030). Neonatal ventilators are artificial breathing assistance devices explicitly designed and primarily used to treat the failures or disorders of neonatal respiratory function. A neonatal patient is connected to a device through an endotracheal tube directly applied to the airway through a noninvasive (NIV) mask. In addition, it is used as a diagnostic instrument to measure any abnormalities in how the respiratory system functions. Invasive and noninvasive ventilators are the two categories of neonatal ventilators currently on the market. These neonatal ventilators are intended to supply neonates with artificial gas support in the form of gas delivery and gas extraction, primarily oxygen and carbon dioxide in their respective forms.

Upsurge in the Number of Preterm Births with Respiratory Problems to Drive Market
Demand for neonatal ventilators is expected to surge due to increased incidence of preterm births, respiratory disorders, and mortality rates in neonates. Preterm birth is one of the leading causes of neonate mortality due to respiratory failures in neonates. Preterm births occur more frequently than full-term births. In addition, babies born with a low birth weight are more likely to suffer from various health problems and require specialized neonatal care. Inadequate neonatal care, particularly regarding respiratory monitoring and nutrition consumption, contributes significantly to the high mortality rate associated with premature births.
Rising Adoption of Non-Invasive Neonatal Ventilators to Boost Market Progress
Noninvasive neonatal ventilators increase oxygenation and alveolar ventilation, which increases the proportion of surviving newborns. In addition, these ventilators can increase patient compliance, speed up the healing process, lower the risk of infection, and shorten the time of hospital stays. Noninvasive neonatal ventilation is an essential tool for the management of acute as well as chronic respiratory failure in the context of home care and critical care settings. Therefore, developing noninvasive neonatal ventilators is a primary factor driving the market expansion.
In recent years, governments worldwide have increased their spending on healthcare. In addition, governments worldwide are teaming up with private businesses to fulfill the growing demand for neonatal and adult ventilators.
High Cost of Neonatal Ventilator to Restrict Market Growth
The high cost of the current portable instruments is the main factor preventing market growth. Investing significant capital is necessary to incorporate innovative design elements and technological advances into these devices. In addition, the prices of the non-movable ventilators range widely depending on their size, technology, and features. Neonatal ventilators have a price tag ranging from USD 7,500 to USD 45,000. These ventilators also need to be operated, maintained, and repaired by personnel with a high level of expertise, contributing to these devices' overall cost. Consequently, it is anticipated that the high costs associated with neonatal ventilators will act as a barrier to expanding the global neonatal ventilator market.
Innovations in Technology, Mobility, and Aesthetics to Spur Market Opportunities
The portability of neonatal ventilators has been significantly improved due to their miniaturization, making it easier to monitor a patient's condition at home, in the hospital, or while they are transported in an emergency. The increase in the trend of semiconductor and bioelectronics technology has supplemented the development of circuits that consume less power and smaller batteries. The portability of neonatal ventilators is improved by having batteries with a small size and a long backup time. As a result, these devices have gradually replaced traditional ventilators over the past few years. Due to this, the market has experienced an increased demand for sophisticated and portable neonatal ventilators. As a result, technological advancements, portability, and improved designs in neonatal ventilators are anticipated to present lucrative growth opportunities for the neonatal ventilator market throughout the forecast period.
The global neonatal ventilator market is segmented by type and end-user.
Based on type, the global market is bifurcated into invasive and non-invasive ventilators.
The invasive segment is the highest contributor to the market, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. The invasive neonatal ventilator market is anticipated to expand significantly. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) reports that respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), caused by a lack of lung surfactants, is most common in premature infants. However, approximately one percent of newborn infants also experience RDS. In addition, preterm birth complications and birth asphyxia, also known as not breathing at birth, are the leading causes of death in newborns. The market's growth is driven by technological advancements in invasive neonatal ventilators and an increase in healthcare professionals' awareness of these devices.
High preterm births with respiratory disorders and mortality rates, increased public awareness, and technological advancements in noninvasive neonatal ventilation devices are all expected to contribute to the noninvasive neonatal ventilator market growth.
Based on end-user, the global market is segregated into hospitals and clinics.
The hospital segment is the most dominant and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. This is because hospitals are expected to increase their adoption of advanced neonatal ventilators and the surge in the number of neonates admitted to hospitals. The market's growth is also fuelled by an increase in the number of hospitals and an increase in the number of preterm births associated with respiratory disorders. Numerous neonatal ventilation clinics are anticipated to generate lucrative growth opportunities. In addition, increased government support for the prevention and effective treatment of respiratory diseases and skilled practitioners in developed nations are anticipated to boost the market growth.
The global neonatal ventilator market is segmented into four regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
