NEW YORK, April 26 Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

U.S. Preterm Infant Care Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0187241/US-Preterm-Infant-Care-Market.html

Report Description

Preterm infant care forms a significant part of the pediatric healthcare market in the U.S. as preterm births are one of the leading causes of infant mortality in the country. One in every eight births in the U.S. are preterm, and the condition is on an alarming rise due to factors such as induced fertility, labor treatments, poor prenatal care, inappropriate maternal age, obesity, and smoking. Preterm infant care products (equipment, drugs, and formulae) can thus be life-critical as they provide the respiratory, nutritional, and thermal support necessary for the survival of pre-term babies. The vital role of these products in preterm infant care thus forms the major factor driving market growth.
