According to the estimates published by the United Nations in 2019, there were 703 million individuals aged 65 years or above worldwide 2019, and this number is projected to double to 1.5 billion by 2050. During 2019 and 2050, 9 out of 10 countries with the largest percentage point increase in the share of older persons in the world will be in Eastern and South-Eastern Asia. For instance, Japan provides potential growth opportunities to this market due to the presence of the highest geriatric population in the country. As the growing aging population is more susceptible to chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and hypertension, therefore, are expected to bolster market growth during the forecast period.

Additionally, high blood pressure has been anticipated to be a major risk factor for hemorrhagic stroke and coronary heart diseases in this decade. According to World Health Organization (WHO), around one in four men and one in five women live with hypertension. The World Health Organization (WHO) also states that hypertension is more prevalent in low- and middle-income countries, for instance, the African region has the highest prevalence of hypertension (27%), and North America has the lowest (18%). Hypertension, besides being the most prevalent, is also the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, premature mortality, and disability. It poses a significant economic burden. All the aforementioned facts are expected to drive growth in the near future. Nature Review states that awareness pertaining to hypertension and its treatment & management is significantly low in middle-income countries.

The U.S. dominated the market with the highest shares of 88.71% in 2021. Government initiatives to encourage the adoption of disposable medical supplies in order to prevent infections in healthcare facilities is the key factor responsible for the growth of the market in this country. Moreover, the high prevalence of hypertension, coupled with high expenditure to manage the condition, is anticipated to drive market growth in the country.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 116 million or 47% of adults in the country had hypertension in 2019, and high BP was the primary cause of death for around 516,955 U.S. residents in the same year. These factors are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, advancement such as the availability of disposable BP cuffs in different sizes and colors for accurate BP readings is anticipated to drive the market growth. Manufacturers refocused on the development of cost-effective, innovative, and easy-to-use products. The improvement in BP cuffs such as Flexiport BP Cuffs by Welch Allyn is expected to boost the usage rates in the coming years. These BP cuffs do not have connectors & traditional cuff tubes and are easy to handle. The attached benefits of the use of these cuffs are presumed to fuel the market demand during the forecast period.

Product Type Insights

The adult disposable blood pressure cuffs led the market and accounted for more than 68.75% share of the global revenue in 2021. This can be attributed to the high disease prevalence in the adult population including elderly people. Hypertension & diabetes are the two prime factors contributing to the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders, such as cardiovascular disorders. Negative lifestyle habits, such as lack of physical activity & high consumption of alcohol, coupled with the rising number of smokers and an increasing obese population with dietary irregularities, are a few factors boosting the incidence of cardiovascular diseases and high risk of hypertension amongst adults. With the increasing prevalence of these diseases, the use of disposable BP cuffs is likely to grow during the study period.

Moreover, an increasing number of people in developing countries of APAC and Latin America, suffering from diabetes and hypertension are expected to provide this market with lucrative growth opportunities in the near future. Thus, rising hospitalization rates coupled with awareness about the importance of early diagnosis of hypertension and cardiac diseases are expected to boost the demand for disposable BP cuffs over the forecast period, thereby contributing to the segment growth.

Global disposable blood pressure cuffs market share, by product type, 2021 (%)

The neonate disposable blood pressure cuffs segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth at a CAGR of 12.63% over the forecast period owing to the increasing birth rates and rising awareness regarding infant health. For instance, according to World Health Organization (WHO), around 15 million babies are born prematurely every year, out of which 1 million die as a result of complications.

HAIs are also responsible for prolonged hospital stays of infants. Similarly, as per the UNICEF, around 25 million babies are born each year in India and account for nearly one-fifth of the world’s annual childbirths. However, every minute one of those babies dies owing to pre-maturity (35%), or neonatal infections (33%). This in turn has increased the demand for neonate disposable blood pressure cuffs in healthcare settings. In addition, improving accessibility to better pediatric facilities and an increasing number of awareness programs for child’s health are boosting the growth of this segment.
