NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global compression therapy market size is expected to reach USD 3.96 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research Inc. Increasing prevalence of chronic venous disorders such as deep vein thrombosis, leg ulcers, lymphedema and venous insufficiency is expected to serve as the key driver.
Growing sports and adventure related injuries are also expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. In Addition, the increasing incidence of diabetes is also likely to support the market demand as diabetic patients usually suffer from swelling in legs, ankles and feet.
Rising geriatric population base is identified as a driver for the compression therapy market owing to the high susceptibility of this age group towards developing chronic venous disorders. Additionally, advancements like use of mobile intermittent pumps and inelastic boots is likely to lead to better compliance and efficacy in patients thereby, leading to greater usage of this therapy.

Static technology compression therapy dominated the market in 2014, with revenue of over USD 1.75 billion. Extensive use of static devices owing to their easy application and removal as compared to the other traditional therapies like treatment with heparin is a key factor contributing towards the dominance of this segment.
