Tourniquet Market Overview and Introduction

A tourniquet refers to a constriction device used to control arterial and venous blood flow to a portion of an extremity for a defined period of time. It is used to apply pressure circumferentially around a portion of a limb at a desired location; the pressure is then transferred to the walls of blood vessels, causing them to become temporarily occluded or restricted. Tourniquets are commonly used in surgical settings to occlude arterial blood flow following exsanguination to produce a relatively bloodless operative field and to minimize blood loss. In the U.S., pneumatic tourniquets are regulated as medical devices by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The increasing cases of limb injuries is primarily contributing to growth of the tourniquet market. Moreover, the rising geriatric population is often associated with several bone degenerative disorders that require orthopedic surgeries, in turn, fueling growth of the tourniquet market. However, the lack of trained professionals adversely affects growth of the tourniquet market.

The global tourniquet market can be segmented by type, application, end user, and region.

Tourniquet Market By Type

Based on type, the tourniquet market can be segmented into tourniquet systems, tourniquet cuffs, and tourniquet accessories. In 2019, the tourniquet systems segment accounted for the largest market share. The growth in this segment can be attributed to increasing incidents of limb surgeries. Tourniquet systems aid in improvised visualization of anatomical structures and prevent iatrogenic failure by optimizing the inflation pressure in limb surgeries.

Tourniquet Market By Application

Based on application, the market can be segmented into lower-limb and upper-limb. The lower-limb segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019.  The most common orthopedic surgeries are associated with lower limbs, which include Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery, knee replacement surgery, chondroplasty, and ankle repair surgeries. According to Washington University Orthopedics, ACL reconstruction surgeries are among the most common operations in orthopedic sports medicine with approximately 200,000 ACL reconstructions performed in the U.S. annually.

Tourniquet Market By End User

Based on end user, the market can be segmented into hospitals & trauma centers, military, ambulatory surgery centers, and others. In 2019, hospitals & trauma centers accounted for the largest market share owing to the increasing number of orthopedic surgeries performed in hospitals.

Tourniquet Market By Region

The global tourniquet market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the tourniquets market in 2019 owing to the increasing number of orthopedic surgeries performed in the region. For instance, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 600,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the U.S. The other factors that propel market growth in this region include the increasing geriatric population, advanced healthcare infrastructure, and the presence of key players.

Tourniquet Market Prominent Players

Some of the prominent players in the global tourniquet market are Zimmer Biomet, ulrich GmbH & Co. KG, Stryker, Delfi Medical, VBM Medizintechnik GmbH, Pyng Medical, Huaxin Medical Equipment Factory, Hammarplast Medical AB, CAT Resources, LLC, and SAM Medical, among others.
