Global Tourniquet Devices Market: Drivers, Opportunities, Trends and Forecasts: 2018 - 2024
Tourniquets are medical devices which are used in stopping blood flow during surgery and are also used in high-risk or emergency. The history of tourniquets is more than 2000 years ago, people used tourniquets to reduce blood flow. Doctors and surgeons used to improve the identification of structures and reduce operating time and other complications and risks. Modern tourniquet has enabled surgeons to adjust and set pressure according to the medical condition. The vital part of tourniquet is the applicability and it is imperative when the tourniquet is not applied properly. It is a compressing device and control/stops the flow of blood of an extremity by applying pressure on the walls of blood vessels where the blood vessels are temporarily restricted or occluded.
The advancement in traditional bandages led to development of innovative tourniquets that include a pneumatic cuff, manometer, and hand pump. This will enable the uniform circumferential pressure and reduce complications and other risks involved during the usage of tourniquet.
The market is witnessing a lucrative growth in developing countries and is expected to see increased volume sales during the forecast period. The sales of tourniquets will further increase through physician-owned orthopedic devices distributorships, hospitals, ASCs, emergency settings, and clinics. Most of the consumers focus on procuring a wide range of tourniquet systems and cuffs that are innovative and have advanced solutions. They focus in bundling payment model that helps to buy product at lower price. This model allows companies to partner with physicians, who obtain tourniquets from manufacturers at a low price when compared to their market price. This helps companies in saving costs by eliminating the concept of the direct sales force. However, surgical procedures can cause complications such as delayed union, implant migration, and risk of infections. In addition, some faulty systems can further deteriorate the impact of the disorder in people.
Most of the leading tourniquet companies focus in developing high quality tourniquets that provide assessment of various surgeries and clinical settings. Manufacturers come up with different strategies to compete in the market and come up with various brands, models, and designs
Factors such as rise in aging population, increase incidence of chronic diseases, introduction of pneumatic tourniquets with high operability and safety, and increase in number of accidents, injuries, and emergencies are expected to drive the impact on growth of tourniquets leading to high demand of advanced tourniquets devices.
