The global compression therapy market size was valued at USD 3.01 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 4.51 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period.

Compression therapy uses a controlled pressure on the lower extremities to increase blood flow and efficiency of the lymphatic and venous system. It is the most established and the most important method of treatment for venous and lymphatic diseases. According to an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2018, lymphedema is a pandemic and affects approximately 250 million patients worldwide. 

The rise in prevalence of vein disorders such as venous leg ulcer, lymphedema, deep vein thrombosis, etc., increasing geriatric population, and the rise in the adoption of pressure therapies for the treatment of these vein disorders are the key factors likely to drive the compression therapy market growth during the forecast period.

Growing Adoption of Compression Garment in Venous Disorder Management to Drive the Growth

Disorders such as venous leg ulcers and lymphedema are hard to heal. However, innovations in products and growing adoption of it as an effective treatment option have been observed as one of the significant compression therapy market trends. This therapy has been clinically proven to accelerate venous leg ulcer (VLU) healing time and to decrease the recurrence rate. It also effectively manages the lymphedema. Also, robust research activities by top market players in product developments are resulting in growing introduction of novel products in the market.


Increasing Prevalence of Lymphatic Disorders and Venous Leg Ulcers to Boost the Market Growth

The prevalence of lymphatic and venous disorders is increasing at a rapid pace, globally. The factors contributing the development of these disorders include immobility, previous deep vein thrombosis, pregnancy, obesity, and varicose veins. Also, factors such as chronic venous insufficiency, breast cancer, and surgeries lead to the lymphatic disorders. Thus, increasing prevalence of these diseases and rising awareness regarding advanced treatments such as compression garments and other devices are likely to drive the market growth. For instance, according to an article published by Vascular Medicine, venous leg ulceration is the most commonly occurring medical condition worldwide which affects around 1.5% of the general population and up to 5% of the geriatric population.

New Developments in Products to Fuel the Market Growth

Various new developments in compression therapy are projected to propel this therapy market growth during the forecast period. Conventional treatment options such as single-component compression systems are advanced compression therapy systems which are multi-component and bi-layer. The multi-component system is made up of a crepe layer, wool padding, an elastic bandage, and an elastic cohesive bandage. 

The interface pressure under the bandages increases with addition of each layer of compression, making multiple system superior and more effective to single component system. Also, increasing number of industry giants are focusing on the development of the advanced compression therapy systems with enhanced effectiveness. For example, in January 2020, AIROS Medical Inc., a medical technology manufacturer specializing in this therapy devices, received FDA approval to market its updated AIROS 8 Sequential Compression Therapy Device and garment system.


High Cost of Compression Pumps & Lack of Awareness about Compression Therapy in Developing Countries to Hinder Growth

Limited knowledge about compression an effective treatment option for management of lymphatic and venous disorders in many developing countries is likely to restrict the compression therapy market growth. Moreover, one of the major hindrances in the growth of the market is the high cost attributed to the compression pumps. However, increasing competition leading to pricing pressure and growing initiatives by leading players in rising the awareness about the availability of this therapy in the market for the treatment of venous leg ulcer, lymphedema, etc. are likely to leverage expansion opportunities in coming years.
