Electric handheld blood pressure (BP) devices have several advantages over conventional blood pressure measuring devices such as ease of use, quick results, easy to interpret and portability. Because of these advantages, conventional BP devices are greatly being replaced by modern automated BP measuring devices. These portable digital BP devices have enabled patients to monitor their blood pressure at regular interval of time at their home. Digital screens of these devices make reading results easier than reading values on conventional devices. They also do not require stethoscope, trained staff for measuring BP and also give results in matter of seconds. Some of the commercially available electronic handheld BP devices are Connex ProBP 3400 by Welch Allyn, Inc., and DIAGNOSTIX 703 SERIES by American Diagnostic Corp.

According to the World Health Organization, in 2008, almost a billion people around the world were suffering from uncontrolled blood pressure issues. This had emerged as a major growth force for the global electrical handheld BP devices market, especially in the technological developments department. As it stands, there is a major need across the world for medical devices that are portable, easy to use, and minimally invasive.
One of the greatest drivers of the global electrical handheld BP devices market currently is the high prevalence of chronic diseases across the world. Blood pressure is one of the most common vitals that need to be regularly checked for patients of chronic diseases and therefore, the global electrical handheld BP devices market is expected to exhibit a high growth rate. Its growth rate will be directly proportional to the number of diagnoses of chronic diseases.
Other drivers of the global electrical handheld BP devices market include the increasing rate of awareness among patients regarding the modern devices available in this market and the various technological developments and innovations. One of the greater innovations is a reduction in the size of several electronic devices, which is making it possible for patients to easily carry the devices around.
The leading region in terms of consumption as well as research and development efforts in the global electrical handheld BP devices market has been North America. This region is followed by Europe and then Asia Pacific, which is presenting rapid growth. The growth of Asia Pacific can be attributed to the high population density and the growing diagnosis rates of chronic disorders. One of the greatest market opportunities is being presented by the Latin America electrical handheld BP devices market owing to major steps taken by Brazil and Mexico in the healthcare industry.
The list of key players in the global electrical handheld BP devices market includes A & D Medical, Microlife, Mabis Healthcare, Inc., Medisana AG, Braun GmbH, American Diagnostic Corp, Welch Allyn, Omron Healthcare Co., Ltd., and Philips Healthcare.
