Smart Baby Scales Market: Overview
- Weight record is essential to monitor the adequacy of nutrition as well as fluid balance in newborns. A newborn’s weight at birth is an important marker of maternal and fetal health and nutrition. Low birth weight newborns have a higher risk of mortality in the first 28 days of life. Hence, an accurate weighing scale is a fundamental need of all special care neonatal units, delivery rooms, and pediatric clinics. Recording weight at birth is essential for the management of very low birth weight (VLBW) babies to predict neonatal morbidity and mortality. It also helps in identifying the level of care required for a baby. Sick and VLBW babies need daily weighing to decide fluid requirement, drug dosages, and weight gain patterns. Scales with an accuracy of + and - 5 gm are essential in the weight monitoring of VLBW babies.
- The global smart baby scales market is anticipated to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period, owing to rise in awareness among parents about the effect of various diseases in low birth weight babies

Key Drivers of Global Smart Baby Scales Market
- According to Lancet Global Health data, in 2015, more than 20 million babies were born with low birth weight i.e., 14.6% of all babies born globally. High incidence rate of low birth weight requires regular weight checks in order to monitor their growth rate. This is expected to drive the global smart baby scales market during the forecast period.
- Technological advancements in smart baby scales is another factor likely to drive the smart baby scales market. In 2016, Ozeri, a U.S.-based specialty manufacturer of lifestyle products for the modern home, launched new Ozeri All-in-One baby and toddler scale. The all-in-one scale digitally measures weight and height of babies with net change detection between weigh-ins, and includes a bonus head circumference measuring tape.
Asia Pacific to Account for Major Share of Global Smart Baby Scales Market
- Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global smart baby scales market in terms of share during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increase in number of hospitals with NICU units and high prevalence of low birth weight. According to WHO data, in 2015, around 14 million babies were born with low weight in Asia Pacific. Hence, demand for smart baby scales is high in the region for proper monitoring the growth of newborns.
- The smart baby scales market in North America is likely to grow at a moderate pace due to high awareness about monitoring the weight of a newborn and quick adoption of advanced scale devices in hospitals and nursing home.
