Market Overview

One of the emerging success factors for companies operating in the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring market is validation from the British Hypertension Society (BHS). This validation is considered a sign of quality and reliability among industry participants. As more companies seek this validation, there is renewed interest in the European approach to ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. In Europe, when a patient is suspected of being hypertensive, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring is seen as a stand of care in order to assess the true condition of the patient. It is part of the protocol followed by physicians. The merits of this approach include accurate diagnoses of hypertension, identification of White Coat Hypertension and in the process, potential cost saving for those people that are not prescribed drugs for blood pressure. It is also beneficial for patients, some of who could suffer serious side-effects as a result of some types of blood pressure medication. Additionally, an aging population coupled with increased obesity and more sedentary lifestyles are contributing to the growing incidence of hypertension. This is creating an ever-increasing demand for blood pressure monitoring equipment. With the increased incidence is heightened awareness about blood pressure monitoring techniques. Among physicians, there is also a great deal of interest in the phenomenon of White Coat Hypertension. This has led to the increased usage of 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring provided by these devices. This study provides the revenues and growth trends in the market segments, analyzing the trends over the next 7 years and how this would influence revenues, price and unit shipments.
