Anthropometry is a branch of science dealing with quantitative measurements of the human body. Pediatric anthropometric measurements are traditionally used by pediatricians, to analyze and evaluate the growth of infants, and diagnose abnormality, disease condition, or genetic disorder, if any, at an early phase of life. Measuring infant’s growth has been an important surveillance parameter in pediatric health care segment, which helps the health care professional to identify weight (overweight or underweight) and other growth deficiencies owing to any underlying medical condition. In pediatrics, major infant measurement parameters include height, weight, head-circumference, weight-height ratio, and others. Various measurement devices are offered in the market by domestic and multinational players, which are used by pediatricians to asses these vital parameters.
There is a rising awareness regarding pediatric measurement practices, especially in emerging countries, such as China, India, Brazil, etc. Various government initiatives to promote health and well-being of infants have raised the standards of pediatric health care in these countries, leading to an increasing number of parents, along with health care professionals adopting pediatric measurement practices and policies. This is a major driver of demand for pediatric measurement devices in these countries, which is subsequently driving the overall market. Moreover, rise in incidence of chronic diseases among infants, along with prevalence of malnutrition, obesity, and other lifestyle diseases, is raising the focus on health care facilities toward initial screening programs, which include pediatric measurement as a standard program. This, combined with rising number of childbirth every year in emerging countries, is a key factor expected to propel the demand for pediatric measurement devices from 2018-2026. Rise in demand for pediatric measurement devices has created lucrative opportunities in the global market and low entry barriers have attracted several domestic and regional players toward entering the market, intensifying the price competition, resulting in shrinking prices of products. This, in turn, is projected to boost the consumption of pediatric measurement devices from 2018-2026. However, lack of compliance on the part of general population toward programs and policies regarding pediatric measurement is a major factor restraining the growth of the global pediatric measurement devices market.
The global pediatric measurement devices market can be segmented on the basis of product type, application, modality, end-user, and region. Based on product type, the global pediatric measurement devices market can be divided into measuring tapes, measuring rods, mattresses, measuring trays, and others.
