Compression therapy is a medical procedure in which external pressure is applied to the skin and underlying structure (organ) to promote normal flow of venous blood in the body. Recognized as a gold standard for treating lymphedema, chronic venous insufficiency, and deep vein thrombosis, compression therapy is safe, easy-to-use and provides effective treatment in a short time span. The therapy aims to increase venous and lymphatic fluid in the limb through the utilization of an external force (exerted by compression products).

Prevalence of Obesity Creates Ample Opportunities for Expansion of Compression Therapy Market in Developed Economies
The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) has stated that around 129,000 knee arthroplasty surgeries were conducted in the U.S. in 1990. The number had reached over 600,000 surgeries in 2010. Furthermore, the AAOS projects the number of arthroplasty surgeries to be conducted in the U.S. by 2030 to surpass 3 million. Considering the incredible rise in number of cases reported in the U.S. alone, the incidence of orthopedic conditions globally is projected to increase at a rapid pace. This creates ample opportunities for the expansion of the compression therapy market.
As obesity increases the risk of vascular diseases due to the pressure exerted by the bodyweight on underlying organs, its rising prevalence is often linked with the increasing demand for compression therapy. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of obesity has nearly doubled since 1980. With experts projecting the number to surge during the report’s forecast period, opportunities for the global compression therapy market are likely to bolster.
Lack of proper reimbursement policies will, however, limit the market’s success to an extent, finds TMR. Nevertheless, the rising investments in emerging economies and widespread unmet medical needs in these countries will support the market’s growth in the near future.
