The global compression therapy market is projected to reach USD X.XX billion by 2023, growing with a CAGR between 5.0% to 5.5% from 2017 to 2023. The global compression therapy market was worth USD 2.72 billion in 2015. Compression therapy involves wearing specially designed bandages, hosiery, socks or stockings, tapes for strengthening the support for veins and thereby increasing the blood circulation in the legs. Compression therapy materials apply gentle pressure to the ankles and legs. It helps in controlling the discomfort and swelling of legs. During the therapy, due to compression, muscular vibration is reduced significantly and delayed muscle soreness is prevented. Compression therapy stockings are manufactured by using elastic apparels. When these garments are used, the compression start at the ankles and then the action gradually moves upwards. Static compression therapy and dynamic compression therapy are the two types of compression therapy. Static compression therapy involves graduated application of compression on limbs with the use of static compression stockings, tubular elastic compression devices and wraps. Dynamic compression therapy involves the use of pumps and sleeves for providing controlled pneumatic external compression or pressure to the limbs. It is done by inflating specially designed garment using compressed air periodically. This method is useful for treating venous ulcer, reducing edema and aiding the return of blood in the veins towards the heart. People suffering from chronic venous diseases find compression therapy as an effective way to heal their condition. People with strained leg veins due to increased pressure are susceptible to chronic venous diseases, as the efficiency of the valves in the blood veins become less and it affects the proper blood flow or reflux. In the end, it can even cause pooling out of blood in the legs. Chronic venous insufficiency is the reason for the majority of the leg ulcer cases globally. Clotting of blood in the veins, gaining of excessive weight, lack of movement of legs for prolonged periods, leg injury, and surgery are some of the factors that cause chronic venous diseases. Compression stockings are available for conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, diabetes, leg ulcer, lymphedema, pregnancy and varicose veins. There are stockings available for sporting and travel requirements as well. Compression therapy is becoming popular among sporting fraternity due to the effectiveness of treatment for muscular, skeletal as well as spinal injuries.

Globally, the presence of large geriatric population with specific healthcare requirements related to venous or limb ailments is a prime factor that is anticipated to drive the growth of the compression therapy market. Increasing awareness about various venous diseases and injuries, along with the increase in participation in adventure and sporting activities are the major factors driving the growth of the compression therapy market. Compression pumps segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the global compression therapy market, due to the increasing number of patients with chronic illnesses related to limbs. Static compression therapy segment accounts for majority of revenue in the global compression therapy. Easier application as well as removal drives the increasing usage of the static compression therapy products. As dynamic compression therapy devices promote better fluid movements and emulate the lymphatic system, they help in faster healing of the wounds. Moreover, it reduces therapeutic cost, due to shorter duration of treatment. Hence, this segment is expected to attain significant growth during the forecast period. The presence of huge number of diabetes patients is expected to drive the growth of the market, as it is an effective treatment for diabetic patients with swollen ankles, legs, or feet. The segment that includes compression garments such as leggings, shirts, and stockings is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. Increasing number of injuries related to adventure and sporting activities are anticipated to enhance the growth of the global compression therapy market. The advanced compression therapy treatment for joints ache and muscle soreness is expected to attract more demand during the forecast period. Increasing number obesity as well as orthopaedic cases is expected to drive the growth of the global compression therapy market. The initiatives taken by clinics, hospitals and other healthcare institutions to store compression therapy garments and devices and utilize for treatments for various medical conditions is anticipated to generate more awareness about the benefits among patients and it is expected to enhance the growth of the global compression therapy market during the forecast period.
Absence of health reimbursement policies related to compression therapy treatment in developed economies is a major restraint for the global compression therapy market. Lack of awareness about the indication of disease or injuries and the benefit of using compression therapy products is expected to be a restraint for the growth of compression therapy market in some regions. Increasing investments and the unmet demand for compression therapy provide opportunity for major players in the emerging and developing economies. Improving the awareness about advanced compression therapy products among physicians and public in non-developed markets is a challenge for the major players to expand further during the forecast period.
