Compression Garments Market By Product Type (Full Body Garments, Lower And Upper Extremities Garments, Facial Garments, Tops, Bottoms, Compression Tapes), By Application (Plastic And Cosmetic Postoperatives, Burn Care, Maternity, Sports, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

Compression garments apply pressure on the veins, which in turn enhances the blood flow and increases the rate of oxygen delivery to the muscles. Postoperative and sports compression garments are specifically designed to prevent common complications associated with surgery and exercise. Factors such as increasing preference for exercise and sports, health and well-being, and growing rates of aesthetic procedures such as liposuction, diabetes, and recurrent wound trauma are driving the market for compression garments.

The design and compression properties of these garments not only help in boosting performance during exercise but also assist in delaying fatigue, reducing swelling, avoiding muscle tears and injuries, and helping attain the desired shape of the body after surgery. Women's compression garments are in higher demand than men's products due to their increasing use following plastic and cosmetic surgeries. The global demand for compression garments for extremities is high, but the uptake for tops and bottoms is also set to remain steady during the forecast period.

In the developing world, the demand for compression garments is mainly fueled by the growing cases of diabetes, lymphedema, sedentary lifestyles, and related ailments. Realizing the inherent growth opportunities, international sports gear manufacturing brands have also introduced their compression wear in developed and emerging markets alike. However, in emerging countries, the use of compression is not as popular as it is in developed countries, and its use is mainly concentrated in metropolitan areas.

Market Synopsis

Lower and upper-extremity garments will generate the most revenue.

Compression garments for extremities form the largest segment in the global market. A higher prevalence of conditions such as lymphedema has always urged sustained demand for compression garments for the extremities. Garments such as gauntlets, stockings, pantyhose, and sleeves are available in several variations, sizes, and compression classes, therefore suiting every area of requirement.

Some other conditions where compression garments are preferred treatments are lipodermatosclerosis, stasis dermatitis (venous eczema), varicose veins (except spider veins), venous edema, and venous ulcers (stasis ulcers). Furthermore, rising demand for sleeves and stockings in sports and fitness activities is also augmenting their position in developed markets.

On the other hand, products such as tops, bottoms, and facial garments are anticipated to be above the global benchmark during the forecast period. Growing cosmetic procedure rates, such as liposuction and age correction surgeries, are driving demand for these products in global markets.

Demand for an Increase in Exercise and Sports Activities

Globally, there has been a significant rise in demand for sports apparel, equipment, and accessories. More and more individuals worldwide are engaged in performance and professional sports.

The rising prevalence of obesity and chronic diseases has also prompted the general public to shift from sedentary to gym and exercise activities. This has consequently led to a growing demand for compression garments in the field of sports. Studies have suggested that the use of compression garments has relatively few ergogenic effects during exercise. The common physical and physiologic effects on users are attenuation of muscle oscillation, better joint awareness, augmented perfusion, higher oxygen use, etc.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-progressing regional market.

North America is anticipated to remain the largest regional market for compression garments during the forecast period. Compression garment demand is expected to rise in the coming years due to an increase in sports injuries among young people, obesity, and diabetes. Furthermore, similar factors, along with the growing incidence of conditions such as varicose veins and lymphedema, will drive the European compression garments market.

It is expected that the Asia-Pacific market for compression garments will grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Countries such as China, India, Australia, and Japan will be the largest consumers of compression garments. The region's major drivers will be rising geriatric populations, sports activities, and burgeoning medical tourism for cosmetic and aesthetic surgeries in Asia-Pacific.
