Surgical Tourniquets Market – Rapid technological advancements in disposable tourniquet cuff are expected to boost market growth


A tourniquet is basically a tight band-like device that is used to completely stop blood flow from a wound. It applies pressure to a particular injured limb or extremity to restrict blood flow or to control bleeding from the venous and arterial circulation for a long time after a limb injury. An individual can lose a lot of blood in situations such as accidents or open surgeries with a serious condition performed on patients. Surgical tourniquets are mainly used in orthopedic surgeries and plastic surgeries. The surgical tourniquet prevents blood flow to a particular limb, allowing surgeons to work in a bloodless operating field and enabling surgeries to be performed with improved safety, accuracy, and speed. Military surgeons primarily use the tourniquet to stop blood flow and also for cannulation. However, disposable cuffs are frequently used to stop blood flow because these devices are discarded immediately after use, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.

Market Drivers:-

A major factor driving the growth of the surgical tourniquet market is the rapid advancement in disposable tourniquet cuff technology. In 2012, the US National Library of Medicine-National Institutes of Health reported that some challenges are encountered with tourniquet use. For example, it is noted that continued use of tourniquets can cause skin necrosis, permanent nerve damage, reperfusion injury, etc. Reperfusion affects vital organs in the body by creating inflammation in damaged areas of the organs. Tourniquets can also cause ischemia due to obstruction of blood flow to a particular limb. To overcome these limitations regarding inappropriate use of tourniquets, a new product called SAM XT Extremity Tourniquet was launched by American company SAM Medical in 2015. A technology used by the device is known as TRUFORCE Buckle Technology which automatically locks at a pre-determined force to prevent loosening, previously considered an annoyance. Locking pins are activated in a strap by force control at the baseline. Other features of this device are that it can be operated easily by allowing faster operation of the product, it requires a few more windlass turns than other tourniquets and it also resists durability by meeting MIL-STD 810G standards .

One of the main factors of death is the road accident. In 2014, the European Commission reported that road accidents caused the death of more than 30,000 people in Europe. These accidents can result in severe brain or spinal cord damage, as well as fatal limb injuries. In 2015, the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) reported that the healthcare sector was the fastest growing in India. Rising incidence of hemorrhages or limb amputations as well as orthopedic surgeries in the geriatric population is expected to drive the demand for surgical tourniquets. For example, in 2017, the American Stroke Association stated that about 13% of stroke cases are hemorrhagic strokes, while limb hemorrhage is a common injury caused during military wars.

Market constraints: –

The global surgical tourniquets market anticipated its decline in the market due to disease transmission through the use of reusable cuffs. For example, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a bacterium that infects different parts of the body, is caused by the use of reusable blood pressure cuffs. It causes serious infections such as infections of the lungs, bloodstream, surgical wounds or urinary tract as well as skin infections such as sores or boils.

Regional analysis: –

The global surgical tourniquets market segmentation is based on region into North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia-Pacific. The surgical tourniquets market is expected to witness significant growth in the Asia-Pacific region over the forecast period owing to the increasing number of geriatric people in this region, which is prone to serious diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, arteriosclerotic vascular and limb amputation, is fueling the growth of the market. The arterial tourniquet is the most regularly used tourniquet for the geriatric population. For example, in 2014, Global Burden of Diseases conducted a study reporting that there are over 32 million heart patients in India, out of which over 0.25 million patients are operated on every year.

In addition, mergers and acquisitions have played an important role in the steady growth of the North America region. For example, the collaboration between SAM Medical and Bound Tree Medical has been instrumental in delivering the latest SAM XT Extremity device. Another growth driver for the surgical tourniquet market is the use of tourniquet in the military. For example, in 2015, North America Rescue reported that the most commonly used tourniquet by the US and UK military was the combat enforcement tourniquet. It could be easily used by militants due to its effectiveness as well as its small size and portable nature. It is also used by the National Health Service (NHS) ambulance.

Additionally, in 2014, the International Labor Organization (ILO) reported that around 3739 cases of fatal work injuries originated from Europe, which would propel the growth of the surgical tourniquet market in Europe.
