The pneumatic turnstile market is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 7.1% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
COVID-19 has created a global public health emergency that has affected nearly every business and industry. Long-term impacts are expected to impact the growth of the industry over the forecast period. Restrictions on elective surgical procedures and disruption of the supply chain during the lockdown have affected and negatively impacted the market for surgical procedures worldwide.
An article published in December 2021 titled “The WALANT Technique Versus Local Anesthesia in the Surgical Treatment of Metacarpal and Finger Fractures: Lessons from the Covid-19 Crisis and the Covid-19 Pandemic” mentions that local anesthesia without a tourniquet while awake (WALANT) is an anesthesia method. this allows the use of local anesthetic and epinephrine injection, avoiding the use of a tourniquet. This WALANT has proven to be a safe and effective method in hand fracture surgery, providing access to surgical care in the perspective of Covid-19. To avoid the spread of the virus, care centers approached alternatives that negatively impacted the market being studied.
However, an increase in the number of orthopedic and plastic surgeries performed, a surge in accidents and falls, and the subsequent increase in the prevalence of degenerative bone diseases have led to an increase in the researched market in recent years. For example, the National Health Service (NHS) Hospital Accident and Emergency Care Report 2019-2020 states that there were 25 million visits to the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) of NHS hospitals in 2019-2020, which increased by 1.% over the previous year in 2018-19 and increased by 17% over 2010-11. This growing burden of emergency hospitalizations due to accidents is expected to increase the demand for wound care operations, leading to an increase in the demand for pneumatic tourniquets for less bloody and dry surgical procedures. It is expected that this will contribute to the growth of the studied market.
In addition, pneumatic tourniquets are used regularly and safely in extremity surgeries throughout the world. The application of these tourniquets alters normal physiology. The use of these tourniquets is a common practice in orthopedic and plastic surgery. The growth in plastic surgery and other augmentation procedures is expected to drive intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA), leading to growth in the studied market.
Moreover, recent acquisitions and strategic moves by major players are increasing the demand for pneumatic turnstiles. For example, in 2020, Dessillions & Dutrillaux acquired Electro Concept Medical to combine R&D, manufacturing and distribution skills. It is expected that these strategic actions of the main players will contribute to the growth of the studied market.
However, a shortage of skilled people to operate the systems during operation is expected to hinder market growth during the forecast period.
According to the scope of the report, pneumatic tourniquets are inflatable cuffs with one or two bladders that are designed to apply pressure to arterial blood flow in a limb to create a bloodless operating field. A pneumatic tourniquet can be used to control the vessels of the extremities.
The Pneumatic Harness market is segmented by type (single bladder and dual bladder), application (orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, etc.), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and South America). The report suggests value (in millions of US dollars) for the above segments. The market report also covers estimated market sizes and trends for 17 different countries in major regions of the world. The report suggests value (in millions of US dollars) for the above segments.
