The market for blood pressure monitoring includes professional and personal monitoring segments. These segments are further sub-segmented into aneroid and digital monitoring devices. Blood pressure is one of the most monitored vital signs across all health care markets. This segment has great potential for growth as both aging and younger demographics continue to see rises in incidence rates for heart disease and hypertension. The professional aneroid market maintained strong growth during the economic recession as health care programs experienced an increase in enrollment. The personal market is expected to continue to increase as more Americans adopt blood pressure monitoring practices. Both markets will continue to see an increase in digital sphygmomanometer sales as aneroid kits are primarily purchased by medical schools, school boards, fitness professionals and some physician offices. Even then, the ease of use and attraction of digital devices is gaining popularity amongst the medical professional community.
The EEG market is made up of EEG monitors as well as the associated electrodes for both diagnostic and depth of anesthesia monitoring devices, which are treated separately herein. Although the number of consumables sold is much larger than the number of monitors sold, the high ASP for monitors resulted in monitors comprising a larger proportion of the total market.
Presently, the long-term EEG market accounts for the majority of the diagnostic EEG market revenue, which excludes the revenue from depth of anesthesia EEG devices. By the end of the forecast period the long-term monitoring segment will strengthen further to represent an even larger share of that market. This shift is driven in part by the high costs associated with the feature loaded monitor configurations utilized in non-routine settings. Furthermore, the deployment of new, high-end technologies, including source imaging and dense array EEG, in addition to expanded applications for EEG will facilitate further revenue growth across these developing EEG device markets.
Electroencephalography (EEG) devices record the electrical activity of neurons in the brain through electrodes placed on the scalp (non-invasive) or directly on the brain (invasive). EEG is commonly used for diagnosing seizures, comas and other brain abnormalities. The efficacy of EEG in the identification of treatable etiologies of altered mental status (AMS) continues to be a major focus for research efforts.
