Follow us on LinkedIn – Although ubiquitous and seemingly benign, blood pressure is a condition characterized by abnormally high blood flow in the arteries. High blood pressure represents the third largest cause of death in the world. Rising incidences of hypertension world over is a cause of increasing concern. Increase in blood pressure is one of the most common causes for peripheral vascular disease, retinal haemorrhage, renal impairment, visual impairment and various heart related diseases. Amidst rising awareness about blood pressure and its associated complexities, significant opportunities exist for the blood pressure monitors market. Rising penetration of mobile-based BP monitoring, introduction of innovative and technologically advanced BP monitors along with increasing demand for home-based BP monitoring devices represent key growth drivers for the BP monitoring market.
Against a backdrop of increasing incidence of hypertension and related cardiovascular disorders, the concept of at-home blood pressure monitoring has gained significant attention. Home based BP monitoring provides a patient round the clock flexibility to monitor blood pressure without having to depend on a physician. This enables a person to keep a personal record of blood pressure patterns, aiding both the individual and the doctor in adopting a suitable course of treatment. Additionally, rise in white collar and masked hypertension patient population further strengthens long-term growth for home based BP measuring devices.
Aging population and the related health problems represents another important growth driver. Prevalence of hypertension is very high in the elderly population with about 70% of high BP patients being above the age of 60.
Despite the global economic meltdown, global market for BP monitors continued to witness new product introductions. Currently available BP monitors in the market include a range of innovative, convenient and technologically advanced devices. Few of the many types of BP monitors currently available in the market include smallest-sized wrist monitors; monitors that are compatible with the latest mobile devices like smartphones, iPad, iPhone, iPod; monitors with innovative cuff designs, monitors with pressurization and deflation capabilities; monitors for extra-large arms; talking monitors; and solar-powered monitors; among others.
As stated by the new market research report on Blood Pressure Monitoring and Measurement Instruments, the US and Europe represent the leading markets worldwide. Asia-Pacific offers huge untapped potential for growth given the relatively low product penetration rates in countries like India and China. Digital sphygmomanometers represents the single largest segment for BP monitoring devices, mainly driven by their technological evolution over the years and the shrinking market share of mercury sphygmomanometers. Ambulatory and automated BP monitors represent the other important segment in the market. Ambulatory approach has gained considerable popularity in recent years with growing scientific evidence indicating ambulatory readings to be superior to clinical measurements.
