Report Overview

The global pneumatic tourniquet market size was valued at USD 350.5 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.0% from 2021 to 2028. Increasing cases of orthopedic surgeries & accidental injuries, a rise in the geriatric population, and growing patient awareness are the key factors driving the market. In addition, a rising number of plastic surgeries performed contributes to market growth. Pneumatic tourniquets are used in orthopedic and plastic surgeries for the creation of a bloodless field, superior safety, enhanced precision for the surgeon. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the global market. Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, have been exhausted with a large number of COVID-19 patients; therefore, many countries have postponed orthopedic surgeries and other healthcare procedures for an indefinite period.

Furthermore, in a few regions, orthopedic and small hospitals were closed or their activities were curtailed and other hospitals were transformed to COVID-19 patients in confinement facilities and treatment centers. As per the research done by the CovidSurg Collaborative, a Research Network indicated that, in 2020, an estimated 6.3 million orthopedic surgeries were canceled globally, over 12 weeks. This factor is likely to have a negative impact on the market.

The geriatric population is highly susceptible to orthopedic disorders. Moreover, the lack of physical activity, high prevalence of diabetes & obesity in this age group, and unhealthy dietary habits are vital risk factors. Thus, demand for orthopedic surgeries is continually increasing owing to the growing aging population. For instance, as per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, the number of people aged 60 years and above was 1 billion. This number will upsurge to 1.4 billion by 2030 and 2.1 billion by 2050. As per the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people aged 65 years and older is projected to reach 83.7 million in 2050.

In addition, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), though seniors constitute only 14% of the current population, they generate 37% of diagnostic tests & procedures and 34% of inpatient procedures. As per the CDC, demand for knee arthroplasties is expected to rise by 673% by 2030. Also, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, states that in the U.S., above 450,000 total hip replacements are performed yearly.

The rising prevalence of sports injuries also contributes to the high demand for pneumatic tourniquets to restrict blood flow. For instance, as per the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2019, (with or without exercise equipment), exercise accounted for around 468,000 injuries, bicycling with around 417,000 injuries, basketball with 404,000 injuries, and football with 292,000 injuries. Such a high incidence of sports injuries creates a high demand for pneumatic tourniquets, thereby driving market growth.

Increasing cases of road accidents directly amplify the incidence of death globally. For instance, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), 1.35 million people die in road accidents and over 20-50 million suffer non-fatal injuries. Accidental injuries require the prevention of blood loss for effective treatment. Since pneumatic tourniquet is majorly used to control bleeding during emergencies, rising cases of accidents are expected to be a key market driver. The rising number of road accidents in Asian countries, such as Japan and China, holds major untapped opportunities, which is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Numerous government initiatives direct efforts to raise awareness and encourage global orthopedic healthcare. The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is working to improve total regional availability of information for hip and knee medical equipment, as well as attempts to enhance Patient-Reported Experiential Measures (PREMs) &Outcome Measures (PROMs).

Associations, such as the American Association/Academy of Orthopedic Medicine (AAOM), also focus on introducing regenerative medicine. Alberta Bone And Joint Institute (ABJHI), a not-for-profit organization, helps to improve the outcomes for people with bone and joint disorders. The White House launched the “Stop the Bleed” campaign to provide public awareness regarding the measures for life-threatening bleeding. The campaign also encourages the placement of ‘Bleeding Control Kits’ in public spaces to enable public access to life-saving supplies. Such initiatives, support market growth.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into single-bladder and double-bladder tourniquets. The single-bladder segment held the largest market share of 66.8% in 2020and is expected to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. The demand for these devices is growing as they provide standardized pressure control and compression, which is independent of the strength and position of a medical expert’s hand. Most tourniquet cuffs available in the market contain a single pneumatic bladder. The increasing number of orthopedic surgeries performed and rising cases of accidental injuries are the major factors driving the growth of the segment. The single tourniquet minimizes pain and complications after the surgery, therefore providing better clinical efficacy. This has led to high product demand.

The double-bladder tourniquet segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The cuffs mainly designed for intravenous regional anesthesia have a dual bladder. This dual-bladder tourniquet enables inflation and deflation of each bladder to be controlled independently, which lets anesthesia professionals control patient pain, thereby increasing patient comfort. Therefore, such advantages are anticipated to propel the segment growth over the forecast period.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into orthopedic, Intravenous Regional Anesthesia (IVRA), and others. The others segment held the largest market share of 38.9% in 2020 and is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. This segment mainly includes the application of pneumatic tourniquets in emergencies like accidents or war injuries. The increasing number of cases of accidents across the globe is the major factor driving the segment growth. For instance, according to the WHO, around 1.3 billion people die yearly due to road traffic crashes. It is the leading cause of death in adults and young children.

The severity of injuries increases owing to delays in detecting and providing care for individuals involved in a road traffic crash. Care for injuries following an accident is very time-sensitive. Thus, urgent prevention of blood loss for effective treatment is necessary. These factors are expected to surge product demand, thereby fueling segment growth. The IVRA segment is anticipated to witness a considerable growth rate over the forecast period. The rising number of upper and lower limb surgeries performed is the major factor propelling the segment growth. For instance, as per a research article published in Elsevier B.V., in the U.S., in total, there are about 1.7 million people suffering from limb loss, i.e., nearly 1 of every 200 people.

It is popular in several countries being used in the emergency room, for outpatients and high-risk patients with contraindications for general anesthesia. IVRA delivers a favorable risk-benefit ratio, economic efficiency, adequate muscle relief, and quick on- and offset. In addition, modern monitoring systems, expert staff, and enhanced emergency equipment made IVRA even safer. IVRA can also be used for the treatment of complicated regional pain syndromes. The aforementioned factors are expected to drive the segment growth during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global market in 2020 with the largest revenue share of 38.26% and is projected to witness a significant growth rate over the estimated period. The growth can be attributed to a rise in the prevalence of orthopedic surgeries in the geriatric population and a rise in cases of accidental injuries. For instance, as per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), in 2017, around 34,247 motor vehicle crashes took place in the U.S., causing about 37,133 deaths.​

Moreover, key players in the region are developing pneumatic tourniquet systems based on microcomputers that enable automated pressure control, incorporated with alarms and other security characteristics.
