Lymphedema treatment aims to manage lymphedema, a long-term swelling that often occurs in the arms, legs, neck, or other parts of the body due to blockage in the lymphatic system. Products used in lymphedema treatment include compression garments, bandages & tape, lymph drainage devices, and exercise machines. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer that can damage lymph nodes and vessels is driving the need for effective lymphedema treatment.
The global Lymphedema Treatment Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.29 Bn in 2023 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:
Rising cases of chronic diseases such as cancer is a major driver of the lymphedema treatment market. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2023 around 1.9 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the United States. Cancer treatment such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy often damages lymph nodes and vessels. This in turn increases the risk of lymphedema development. For instance, breast cancer treatment has been associated with lymphedema in the arm in around 20-30% of cases. Growing cancer prevalence is thus expected to augment the demand for effective lymphedema treatment options such as compression garments, pumps, and complex decongestive therapy over the forecast period.
