Analysts forecast the Global Blood Pressure Monitor market to grow at a CAGR of 6.53 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in the prevalence of high/low blood pressure.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the healthcare team said: "As people are becoming more hygiene conscious, the demand for disposable medical supplies is increasing globally. A similar trend is being witnessed in the Global Blood Pressure Monitor market. Disposable blood pressure monitoring cuffs are rapidly becoming popular because they reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections. Disposable cuffs are typically made of polyester or vinyl. These cuffs are for one-time use or limited use, and they are commonly used in emergency rooms, operating rooms, and intensive care units where infection control is a primary concern. For instance, SunTech Medical provides soft, single-patient usable, tapered-end disposable blood pressure cuffs with a patient ID line to minimize cross-contamination."
According to the report, the increase in the number of people suffering from high/low blood pressure increases the demand for blood pressure monitors. This is expected to result in the Global Blood Pressure Monitor market growing significantly during the forecast period.
