LONDON, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Compression therapy is a procedure entailing the delivery of an external force to tired and aching legs and other relevant anatomical targets where compression is required for management. This therapy is used to treat venous and lymphatic diseases, such as lower limb edema, venous eczema, deep vein thrombosis, and diabetic foot ulcers.
Compression can be achieved by using garments such as bandages and stockings. These compression garments prevent blood from pooling in the legs, which, in turn, helps improve blood circulation. Compression garments are designed to apply differing amounts of pressure to various parts of the leg.
Increasing prevalence of diabetes, growing aging population, high incidence of sports injuries, rising awareness about various venous diseases, and the advanced features of compression therapy garments and devices are the major drivers of the global compression therapy market. On the other hand, inadequate reimbursement policies and risk of complications associated with compression therapy devices are some of the major restraints for the compression therapy market.
In terms of geography, North America dominates the compression therapy market, followed by Europe. This is due to increasing number of sports injuries and a growing aging population in the region. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, a global organization dedicated to preventing injuries in children, every year about 1.3 million cases of sports injuries among youngsters are registered in the U.S. Moreover, increasing prevalence of diabetes and rising obesity are also supporting the growth of compression therapy market in North America.
The compression therapy market in Europe is expected to witness moderate growth attributable to rising incidence of sports injuries in the region. In Europe, Germany, France, the U.K., Italy, and Spain account for the majority share of the compression therapy market. The compression therapy market is expected to expand at a significant rate over the next few years. This is due to the rising number of sports injuries in various countries, such as India, and especially the Southeast Asian countries. Moreover, a growing aging population and increasing prevalence of diabetes are also supporting the growth of compression therapy market in the region. India, China, and Japan are expected to be the fastest-growing markets for compression therapy in Asia.
