Lymphedema is a chronic medical condition caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system, which results in swelling in the arms, legs, neck, or other parts of the body. The key products used in lymphedema treatment include compression garments & bandages, pulse pumps & complete decongestive therapy, and other treatments such as diuretics, liposuction, etc. Compression garments are the mainstay treatment for lymphedema which supports the tissue and prevents further fluid build-up.
The lymphedema treatment market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of cancer-related lymphedema. According to the National Cancer Institute, the number of cancer survivors in the U.S. is estimated to be over 16.9 million in 2022 which is expected to rise considerably over the next decade. Lymphedema is a common complication of cancer treatment which boosts the demand for effective lymphedema treatment options. Additionally, technological advancements in medical compression garments in terms of comfort, fit, breathability etc. are enhancing treatment compliance and convenience for patients. Companies are developing bioelectrical impedance technology, which can measure subtle changes in tissue fluids underlying compression garments and aid in lymphedema management more effectively. The availability of reimbursement for lymphedema treatment, growing awareness among patients and physicians, and introduction of state-of-the-art treatment centers are some other drivers of market growth.
The lymphedema treatment market can be segmented into compression therapy, drug therapy, surgery, and others. Among these, compression therapy accounts for the largest market share as it is considered to be the most effective treatment for lymphedema. Compression therapy helps drain excess lymphatic fluid and reduces swelling. Within compression therapy, compression bandages and garments are the most commonly used products for lymphedema management.
