The global lymphedema treatment market consists of treatment devices and drugs used for treatment of lymphedema. Lymphedema is a medical condition caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system which leads to swelling in arms, legs or any other body parts. It is commonly caused by cancer treatment like radiation therapy and surgery which damages lymphatic vessels. The rising cases of lymphedema due to growing cancer patient population is driving the demand for lymphedema treatment globally. Treatment devices like compression pumps, compression garments and bandages are used to manage symptoms and prevent worsening of lymphedema. Drugs like diuretics are also prescribed to reduce swelling.
The global lymphedema treatment market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.29 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 21% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends
One of the key trends in the global lymphedema treatment market is the rising popularity of advanced compression devices. Manufacturers are focusing on development of compression devices integrated with new technologies like Bluetooth and apps for remote monitoring. This allows patients to self-manage lymphedema at home and seek help remotely in case of issues. Another trend is the growing adoption of Complex Decongestive Therapy (CDT) which is a non-invasive gold standard treatment combining manual lymph drainage, bandaging, compression therapy and skin care. Its effectiveness is boosting its utilization for lymphedema management globally. There is also a rising adoption of laser and light therapies as adjunct treatments for lymphedema. Low-level light therapy and near-infrared light therapy are showing promise in reducing swelling and improving lymphatic drainage without any side effects.
