Prenatal care is the care to be taken during pregnancy. Early and regular prenatal care is quite important for the health of a mom and baby during pregnancy. It includes regular health check-ups and diagnostic tests. The prenatal care market is expected to witness strong growth as all pregnant women suffer from common health issues such as stretch marks, pigmentation, hair and snail changes, and back pain. Several pregnancy products are available to treat these conditions in the form of creams, gels, and lotions in the U.S. Therefore, the prenatal care market in the country is expected to grow significantly in the next few years. Additionally, the leading players help create awareness regarding availability and use of pregnancy products in the market. These players engage in various marketing tactics and awareness campaigns which is expected to boost the growth of the prenatal care market. Furthermore, approximately 90% women develop stretch marks during pregnancy. This has increased demand for these products to be readily available in the market.
The global prenatal care market is driven by various factors such as increasing incidence of preterm child births, growing awareness about prenatal care, and rising demand for various prenatal products, therapeutics, diagnostics, and monitoring equipment. Additionally, government initiatives for prenatal and neonatal care are likely to drive the market in the near future. Moreover, increase in distribution channels such as supermarkets, online stores, retail stores, and pharmacies are likely to fuel the growth of the pregnancy products market in the near future. Furthermore, rise in teen pregnancies in Southern United States is projected to propel the prenatal market in the region. Growing awareness about prenatal care has led to increase in expenditure on baby care products to provide the right care to babies. However, the global recession, increase in working women population, and single child family are the factors hampering market growth. Nevertheless, governments in some countries are taking action to offset these restraints by providing subsidies to families with more children.
