Blood pressure monitoring devices, whether personal or professional, are used as a means of understanding and tracking bodily blood pressure levels. Within the human body, the autonomic nervous system is responsible for monitoring blood pressure levels. Moreover, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems both have effects on blood pressure, either raising or lowering it. Generally abnormal blood pressure levels are characterized by levels that are too high or too low. Hypertension refers to instances where an individual’s blood pressure is more elevated than “normal” and hypotension refers to instances where the individual’s blood pressure is lower than “normal.” Both conditions may result in further health complications.
iData Research recently completed a detailed analysis on the global market for blood pressure monitoring devices.

Which company is the global market leader, Omron or Welch Allyn?
Overall, the global report on blood pressure monitoring devices covers seven regions and over 70 countries. In 2021, the value of the global market surpassed $1.4 billion. Moving forwards, modest growth is expected over the forecast period as the projected market value in 2028 is expected to reach $1.7 billion. iData’s analysis on the Global Blood Pressure Monitoring Market includes both personal monitoring devices and professional monitoring devices. Personal devices are purchased by individuals and often used in the home, whereas professional devices are purchased by physicians for use in clinics, hospitals or other healthcare facilities. Personal devices tend to sell considerably more units compared to professional devices, in part because each personal device is often only used by one individual or within one household. However, professional devices are also considerably more expensive, which serves to close the majority of the gap when it comes to market value.
