The market research analysis categorizes the global baby monitors market
into three major product segments. They are:

  • Audio and video baby monitors
  • Motion-detection baby monitors
  • Audio baby monitors

Audio and video baby monitors

The global audio and video baby monitors market is expected to
grow at a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period. A baby
monitor transmits audio and video data to a receiver to keep a tab on
the child’s activity in case parents are not around. A basic baby
monitor functions by using a radio transmitter, whereby the sound
produced by a baby is transferred to a receiver. The receiver contains
an inbuilt speaker that enables listeners to hear the baby from various
locations within a certain range. Audio and video baby monitors relay
both audio and video data to the receiver or parent unit. The most basic
forms of these monitors have a small, wall-mounted or table-top camera,
in addition to a primary audio unit.

Motion-detection baby monitors

Movement monitors are a niche and relatively new category of baby
monitors that are gaining traction owing to their key feature of
movement-sensing. Such baby monitoring systems sound an alarm if
no movement or breathing is sensed for an average of 20 seconds,
alerting parents or caretakers. These monitors are expected to gain
sales momentum over the forecast period with growth in awareness of
these products.

Under-the-mattress baby movement monitors have sensor pads that need to
be placed under the mattress of the baby’s crib. These sensors are
usually highly sensitive and can be used with a wide range of
conventional mattresses irrespective of their thickness. However, the
sensitivity of under-the-mattress sensor pads differs from one vendor to
another and consumers need to verify the suitability of such monitors to
the mattress type.

Audio baby monitors

Audio monitors transmit sounds to receiver devices, which enables
parents or caregivers to listen to the baby. Some of these devices are
equipped with a two-way talk-back feature so parents can calm and
console babies by talking to them. Audio-only monitors are priced
relatively low, which adds to their prevailing mass appeal in the
market. The global audio baby monitors market is expected to grow at a
CAGR of close to 8% during the forecast period.

“Baby monitors have relatively high penetration rates in Europe and
North America. In contrast, the baby monitors markets in APAC, MEA, and
South and Central America offers considerable growth potential. Over the
coming years, growing demand from countries such as China, Japan, Oman,
Kuwait, Brazil, and Mexico is expected to contribute to the growth of
the market,”
says Brijesh.
