A sphygmomanometer is medical device used for arterial blood pressure measurements in patients. Blood pressure readings consist of two readings: systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurement. The systolic blood pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps the blood into the aorta and is generally 120 mm Hg in normal patients. The diastolic pressure is the pressure when the heart refills the blood into the ventricles and is generally 80 mm Hg in normal patients. The sphygmomanometer is basically composed of a rubber cuff which is wrapped around the arm, a measuring device to measure cuffs pressure, a bulb to inflate the cuff, and a valve to release the pressure. Mercury sphygmomanometer, aneroid sphygmomanometer, and digital or electronic sphygmomanometer are the three types of sphygmomanometer available for blood pressure measurement. A mercury sphygmomanometer is considered as a gold standard for blood pressure measurement. An aneroid sphygmomanometer is free of mercury, hence considered as safe, and it consists of a dial, a single handed inflatable cuff, and an automatic inflating and deflating valve. A digital or electronic sphygmomanometer is mercury free and uses oscillometric measurement method; and it is battery operated, automatic, and easy to use. This type is considered as less accurate than the other two types of sphygmomanometers. There are different types of digital sphygmomanometer such as automatic, manual, pediatrics and neonate, upper arm, and wrist sphygmomanometers. Out of these, automatic and wrist sphygmomanometers are commonly used types of digital sphygmomanometer.
The increasing prevalence of high blood pressure is one of the leading risk factors for global mortality. According to the World Health Organization, high blood pressure is a leading cause for more than 7.5 million deaths. Rise in awareness about hypertension among the global population and emergence of home care practices are likely to drive the market for global digital sphygmomanometer. As the digital sphygmomanometers are battery operated and easy to use, their market demand is expected to rise. In addition, patient comfort, and portable characteristics are projected to add to their demand in the market during the forecast period. In various studies, it has been observed that the digital sphygmomanometers are less accurate in showing results as compared to aneroid and mercury based sphygmomanometers. This factor is likely to be the restraining factor for the growth of the global digital sphygmomanometer market. Ultimately, this provides the opportunity of R&D activities for better advancements in these products delivery and more accurate results.
The global digital sphygmomanometer market is segmented into type of digital sphygmomanometer, end-user, and geography. The digital sphygmomanometers are sub-segmented into upper arm, wrist, pediatrics/neonate, and ambulatory blood pressure monitors. The upper arm and wrist sphygmomanometers are the most commonly used. Ambulatory blood pressure monitors are required for continuous measurement and monitoring of blood pressure for medical supervisions. In terms of end-user, the market is segmented into home care, hospitals, general practitioners clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, and ambulances. The home care segment contributes a high market share of digital sphygmomanometers owing to increase in awareness about blood pressure monitoring techniques, ease of use, and widespread adoption in developed countries. The segment is followed by general practitioners clinics in terms of market share for digital sphygmomanometers.
On the basis of region, the global market is distributed over North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The North America and Europe regions dominate the global market owing to early adoption and increased practice of blood pressure monitoring in the home care segment. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period as a result of increasing number of patients and home care practices for elderly patients.
