Growing Prevalence of Hypertension in Low Income Countries Presents Significant Opportunities

Hypertension is a global problem that continues to be one of the leading causes of premature death worldwide. The prevalence of hypertension is the highest in low to middle income countries in Africa and Asia Pacific, owing to lack of awareness related to the symptoms, long-term effects of the condition, and scarcity of healthcare facilities in these regions. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 1.13 billion people had hypertension in 2015. The WHO also revealed that ~40% of the global population have high blood pressure, due to which the demand for effective and accurate blood pressure monitoring devices has witnessed an exponential growth across the world. The ascending demand for blood monitoring devices has directly influenced the growth of the blood pressure cuffs market, which is expected to reach ~US$ 289 Mn by 2027.

Due to the growing prevalence of hypertension worldwide, significant efforts are being made to overcome various challenges related to the treatment of hypertension within the healthcare system worldwide. For instance, the WHO collaborated with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to launch the Global Hearts Initiative to assist governments in preventing cardiovascular diseases. These initiatives, along with rapid adoption of home care blood pressure monitoring devices, are anticipated to drive the blood pressure cuffs market during the forecast period (2019-2027).

Reusable blood pressure cuffs are likely to retain the lead in terms of value, as they are easy to clean, durable, and identified as a cost-effective alternative. However, owing to mounting concerns and risk factors associated with reusable cuffs, the adoption of disposable blood pressure cuffs is increasing, particularly in operating rooms, intensive care units (ICU), and neonatal units wherein infection control is a major concern. By the end of 2027, disposable segment is expected to account for ~45% of the blood pressure cuffs market share, up from a 40% share in 2019.

Adoption of Manual and Automated Blood Pressure Cuffs

Manual blood pressure cuffs are expected to remain in high demand during the forecast period, as they are light in weight and cost-effective. The manual product type segment is expected to reach a total market value of ~US$ 149 Mn by 2027 and account for a share of ~52% of the total market. However, manual blood pressure monitoring devices are gradually losing popularity in the blood pressure cuffs market, as automated blood pressure monitoring devices continue to gain traction worldwide. The automated pressure cuffs are specifically designed for one-handed applications and are portable, thus, emerging as a convenient and easy-to-operate alternative. The automated segment of the blood pressure cuffs market is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period, and by the end of 2027, this segment is likely to attain a value of ~US$ 140 Mn.

Companies Focus on Product Launches to Gain Advantage in Blood Pressure Cuffs Market

Companies operating in the blood pressure cuffs market are increasingly focusing on developing new products that comply with the guidelines laid down by the American Heart Association. For instance, in November 2018, SunTech launched the PLUS Cuffs that were primarily designed to fit different patient types such as bariatric patients. These newly developed cuffs were developed to enhance measurement reliability and minimize the inventory costs in hospitals. Omron, a Japanese health tech organization, introduced HeartGuide, a new blood pressure watch with the objective to help minimize the risk of stroke. The product is integrated with an inflatable cuff to accurately measure and record the blood pressure levels of the user.

Companies in the blood pressure cuffs market landscape should focus on improving the accuracy of their products and expand their product range by introducing pressure cuffs of different sizes for a range of patients. 

Blood Pressure Cuffs Market: Overview

  • The global blood pressure cuffs market was valued at ~US$ 149 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a moderate CAGR from 2019 to 2027. Rise in hypertension condition, growing adult and pediatric patient pool, approval of new digital cuffs, and increase in self-diagnosis for managing hypertension condition, especially in developing markets, are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global blood pressure cuffs market.
  • Hypertension, also known as blood pressure, is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in arteries becomes elevated in the patient. Hypertension condition is considered when the blood pressure reading is above 140/90 and is considered to be in severe condition is the reading is above 180/20. This is termed to be a lifestyle disease and with normal and healthy lifestyle, the blood pressure could be maintained the entire life.
  • Hypertension is considered to be a highly common disorder escalating drastically around the world. It is known as a ‘silent killer’ as it exhibits no signs or symptoms before diagnosis. Changing lifestyles, along with poor diet, lack of physical activity, alcohol consumption, and mental stress lead to a rise in blood pressure at an early stage, driving the need for blood pressure diagnostic devices. According to the WHO, in 2019, an estimated 1.13 billion people globally were suffering from the hypertension condition.
  • As per the CDC research in 2017, prevalence of hypertension in the U.S. is estimated to be 29% affecting around 103 million adults in the U.S. As per the American Heart Association (AHA) journal published in 2019, in Japan, 43 million people were suffering from hypertension and only half of the patients received treatment. This statistics supports that hypertension is a growing global burden and is, thus, likely to be addressed with robust awareness about managing the condition.
  • Launch of various neonatal & pediatric blood pressure cuffs is likely to offer various options available for this niche patient group. Several companies, such as GE Healthcare and Omron Healthcare provide a strong range of neonatal and pediatric blood pressure cuffs in various sizes. For instance, GE CRITIKON Neonatal blood pressure cuffs offer huge benefits, along with accurate reading and comfort.
