Market Introduction

Compression therapy involves the use of sustained pressure to tackle problems associated with blood flow in the limbs, especially around ankles, joints and other areas. Increasing injuries associated with sports activities has escalated the demand for compression therapies, where the injuries or anatomical targets are compressed with the application of any external force. A gradual pressure is applied onto the infected or wounded area on the veins which results in an increase in the flow of blood to the veins and also results in the increasing drainage of noxious substances and reducing inflammation and pain at the same time. Compression therapy can be conducted with the use of bandages, gloves or boots, and air pumps among others. Hospital and clinics are adopting various compression therapy products on account of rising count of surgeries, diabetic and lymphatic diseases, and various others.

Market Dynamics

Rising prevalence of diabetes is one of the key factors resulting in the high growth of the compression therapy market. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. recorded more than 30 million people affected with diabetes, which totals to approximately 10% of the entire U.S. population. Further, according to Insights and Reports, the global diabetic population crossed the 450 million mark in 2015. People suffering from diabetes are highly susceptible to developing peripheral arterial disease, which results in the reduction of blood flow to the legs. Battling these conditions have given rise to the adoption of compression therapy products and is thereby fuelling the market growth of the same. Further, according to Insights and Reports, U.S. witnesses more than 900,000 people suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and more than 80,000 people die from the disease. These factors are highly responsible for the growth of the compression therapy market.

However, lack of reimbursement policies for compression therapy products by the government agencies is a major factor responsible for market slowdown at present.

Market Segmentation and Analysis

Based on technology, the compression therapy market has been classified into static compression therapy and dynamic compression therapy. Static compression accounted for the major market share in 2016 and is expected to hold its position throughout the forecast period as well.

Based on product type, the compression therapy market has been classified into compression garments, compression bandages, diabetic shoes, anti-embolism stockings, compression socks, compression sleeves, compression tapes, segmented compression pumps and non-segmented compression pumps. Compression bandages accounted for the major market share in 2016 and is expected to continue leading the market throughout the forecast period as well.

Further, based on end-user, the market has been segmented into clinics and diagnostic centers, hospitals, and surgical centers among others.

Geographical Outlook

North America led the compression therapy market in 2016 and is expected to retain its stronghold throughout the forecast period as well. Rising geriatric population is one of the key factors driving the growth of the compression therapy market in the region. U.S. is the major contributor to the growth of this industry. Further, appropriate public healthcare facilities, coupled with high per capita spending on healthcare is another key factor pushing the market growth for compression therapies.

Asia Pacific, however is expected to be the fastest growing region for compression therapies. Highly populous countries such as India and China are expected to spearhead the growth of the market. Rising incidences of sports related injuries, and rising diabetic population are some of the key factors responsible for the growth of the compression therapy market in the region. According to Insights and Reports, the type 2 diabetic population in India cross the 50 million mark in 2016. Further, the type 2 diabetic population in the country is expected to touch 90 billion by the end of 2030.
