Global Tourniquets Device Market 2017-2021
About Tourniquets Device
A tourniquet is a compressing device used to control or resist blood flow during accidents or surgical procedures. Pressure is applied circumferentially to the skin and the underlying tissues of a limb; this pressure causes a temporary occlusion. Tourniquets are segmented into two types based on product type –– pneumatic and non-pneumatic tourniquets. Pneumatic tourniquets contribute to a major share of the market and are expected to grow at a high rate.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global tourniquets device market to grow at a CAGR of 8.95% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is rise in research activities. New product launches, coupled with growing research activities, are expected to give rise to innovative tourniquets. Vendors are extensively focusing on the development of new products to address unmet medical needs associated with bleeding during challenging situations. In April 2016, Australian Scientists developed a pharmacological tourniquet that includes adenosine, lidocaine, and magnesium (a stabilization fluid), which helps slow down the heart rate, decrease blood flow, and cause clotting. The product has posted positive results in animal trials in which it reduced the blood loss by 60%. The tourniquet finds applications in farm accidents, rural and remote areas, and aeromedical support. In March 2015, Pyng Medical launched the MATResponder Elite, a new tourniquet that provides high levels of safety and reliability for the patient while transporting to the clinics. In November 2016, Manhasset's Feinstein Institute for Medical Research developed a neural tourniquet that harnesses electrical nerve stimulation to decrease blood loss. Also, in September 2016, Smart data Medical launched the Tensrite single-use tourniquets, which offer sterile options to protect surgeons and patients from infections. This product could be an effective alternative in halting hemorrhaging during and after childbirth, a major cause of maternal death worldwide. This could be a drugless answer to postpartum bleeding. Such research activities will drive the market growth.”
According to the report, one driver in market is technological advances. The growing focus toward the incorporation of technological advances by vendors to develop advanced tourniquets is expected to fuel the market growth. The market has witnessed a shift from manual tourniquets to technologically advanced tourniquets. For instance, Stryker is offering Color Cuff sterile disposable tourniquets, which is available in single or dual port configurations to reduce cross contamination issues. Also, Zimmer Biomet is offering the A.T.S 4000 tourniquet system, which includes personalized pressure technology, dual port, and dual cuff assisted gas monitors. Also, companies such as ulrich medical and Delfi Medical are offering inflatable abdominal tourniquets, which help reduce heavy bleeding with an incredibly simple and mechanical design. This device can be buckled around an individual’s abdomen, over the belly button, and then tightened. A hand pump is used to inflate a wedge-shaped bladder, which displaces the bowel and compresses the individual’s aorta against the spine, stopping all blood flow to the lower body.
Further, the report states that one challenge in market is increasing complications associated with the tourniquets. The increasing complications associated with the use of tourniquets hamper the market growth. For instance, some of the complications associated with tourniquet use include muscle/nerve injury, gangrene, ischemia, compartmental syndrome, amputation, and death. This usually appears when tourniquets are left in place too long, released outside of medical care, improvised, used unnecessarily, and used incorrectly. Few of the complications associated with pneumatic tourniquets include nerve injury, which is the most common complication resulting from the use of tourniquets during upper extremity surgeries. It can also occur in the thigh and lower leg during cuff applications. The nerve injury can range from a moderate transient loss of function to permanent and irreversible damage. Symptoms of nerve injury include the inability to detect heat, pain, cold, or pressure over the skin. Limb paralysis is also referred to as tourniquet paralysis syndrome. When this disorder occurs, the motor nerves distal to the cuff are affected, leading to a temporary inability to move the extremity. Also, the post-tourniquet syndrome is manifested by prolonged post-operative swelling of the extremity. Approximately 50% of all post-tourniquet swelling cases are caused by blood returning to the limb, following the release of the tourniquet. Such complications may hinder the growth prospects of the market.
