29-07-2020 REP-HC-5147 110 pages Format

The neonatal apnea treatment market was valued at USD 232.7 Mn by 2019. The growing incidence of neonatal apnea in preterm birth babies worldwide primarily drives the market growth. Additionally, the effective implementation of treatment guidelines pertaining to the management and care of neonatal intensive units across the globe further accentuates the market growth.

Neonatal Apnea Treatment Market

Neonatal apnea treatment is a major concern for pediatric surgeons engaged in the provision of neonatal intensive care. Bradycardia in the neonates is considered as clinically significant if the heartbeat slows by 30 bpm from the resting heart rate. Secondly, the oxygen saturation level below 85% is considered pathologic in the neonates if this condition persists for more than 5 seconds.

Segment Analysis

Caffeine citrate is spearheading the drug class segment for the neonatal apnea treatment market. It is widely employed by pediatric surgeons worldwide for the successful extubation in preterm births. Caffeine has a wider therapeutic index among all the methylxanthines drugs, hence the occurrence of a drug overdose is less likely to occur. The only limitation associated with caffeine is that it might reduce the rate of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in neonates having very low birth weights. Aminophylline is considered as the alternative methylxanthine for the treatment of neonatal apnea owing to its ability to improve the contraction of thoracic musculature in neonates who are at risk of suffering from bronchopulmonary dysplasia. The negative aspect associated with aminophylline is that it might decrease the cerebral blood flow and several clinical trial investigations have suggested the possible role of aminophylline in worsening the necrotizing enterocolitis.

Hospital pharmacy is presently leading the distribution channel for the neonatal apnea treatment market. Severe drug-related adverse events associated with methylxanthines drugs such as restlessness, nervousness, loss of appetite, etc, make it mandatory for the accurate drug dispensing of methyxanthines drugs under the supervision of hospital pharmacist. Retail pharmacy is expected to register rampant market growth in the near future on account of the constant rise in the generic drugs market in the developing regions and its ability to provide medical aid to patients residing in remote locations.

North America is representing the largest market share in the geography segment for the neonatal apnea treatment market. The growing incidence of neonatal apnea primarily drives market growth in the region. As per the latest research citings provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), approximately 70% of the babies born before 34 weeks of gestation suffer from neonatal apnea. Furthermore, the affordable reimbursement scenario associated with the use of methyxanthines in managing neonatal apnea and domicile of major players such as Pfizer, Inc., Omega Laboratories Ltd., Mylan Pharmaceutical Industries Limited. Together accentuate the market growth in the region. Europe is considered as the second-largest regional segment for neonatal apnea treatment market owing to the nurturing regulatory environment provided by the European Medical Agency (EMA) for the sale and distribution of methyxanthines drugs for the treatment of neonatal apnea prevalent in the region. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional segment for neonatal apnea treatment market on account of the effective implementation of the treatment guidelines pertaining to the management of neonatal intensive care and flourishing generic drugs market.
