Global Compression Therapy Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global compression therapy market size is forecasted to be worth USD 6.04 billion by the end of 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.46% between 2022 to 2027.

Compression therapy is a frequent treatment to improve blood flow in your lower legs. Typically, elastic stockings or wraps are used. Your legs, ankles, and feet are compressed by the elastic. This aids in preventing fluid and blood build-up and blood pooling in specific locations. It is a successful treatment for swelling and pain brought on by circulatory disorders such as varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis, edema, leg ulcers, wounds, orthostatic hypertension, etc. Compression therapy equipment comes in various forms and can be purchased without a prescription or over the counter. The therapy equipment includes compression garments and stockings, bandages, wraps, inflatable devices, and others.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global compression therapy market:

There have been difficult times because of the COVID-19 pandemic in many different places. All businesses suffered losses because of the stringent lockdowns and quarantines imposed due to the limitations on the production and supply of commodities. Access to even the most necessities of daily life became quite complicated as a result. In addition, hospitals entirely shifted their attention to providing care for COVID-19 patients due to the pandemic, which also had a substantial impact on the healthcare industry. As a result, additional health department activities were regularly postponed.

As all the attention shifted towards the COVID-19 patients and the hospitals faced a crisis, it became challenging to handle the influx of patients, leading to a scarcity of hospital resources and more hospital expenditure, especially for private hospitals, as they needed to buy more consumables, equipment, resources and even workforce. Furthermore, the orthopedic industry also suffered as the orthopedics staff was assigned to the COVID-19 cases, and the surgical procedures which weren't deemed extremely urgent were postponed, thus causing a shortage of staff and treatments. As a result, the market for compression devices faced losses as the number of patients and priority toward patients declined. However, as the COVID-19 situation subsidizes, the market is expected to bounce back from the loss. 


Y-O-Y growth in the geriatric population is majorly propelling the compression therapy market.

The rising geriatric population has led to increased conditions that need compression therapy assistance. Problems like varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis, edema, leg ulcers, wounds, and orthostatic hypertension commonly occur in older people. According to the U.N., there were around 703 million people aged 65 or above in 2019. the world geriatric population is expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2050, doubling the current percentage. Additionally, the increasing rates of surgical procedures needing compression therapy during rehabilitation drive the growth of the compression therapy market. Furthermore, the rising investments and new markets in compression therapy are supporting its growth. The increasing concerns for better healthcare systems and the development of disposable incomes among populations are raising the market for global compression therapy.

Y-O-Y rise in the number of cancer cases promotes compression therapy market growth.

Dissection of lymph nodes is a common component of cancer treatment, particularly for breast and prostate tumors. This interferes with the body's lymphatic system's filtration process. As a result, lymph fluid builds up and results in lymphedema and severe swelling of the tissues or limbs. According to the National Institutes of Health, over 250 million people have this illness worldwide. Compression therapy is one of the most often used lymphedema treatment methods, and as the prevalence of this ailment rises, the demand for these therapies will also increase.


The market is restrained due to the lack of standard rules and procedures or guidelines for using compression therapy. The FDA has not formed any standards for the production and usage of compression materials and treatments. Therefore, the procedures do not successfully accommodate for too much credibility leading to a hindrance to the compression therapy market growth.
