The Lymphedema Treatment Market Overview and Analysis By Type (Primary Lymphedema, Secondary Lymphedema), By Affected Area (Lower Extremity, Upper Extremity, Genitalia), By Treatment (Compression Devices Bandaging, Laser Therapy, Drug Therapy Surgery) and By End-User (Hospitals and clinics, Clinical Research Organizations, Research Academic Institutes) - Forecast to 2030
Lymph is a fluid rich in protein that moves throughout the body via lymph vessels. This fluid carries bacteria, viruses, and other waste to lymph nodes. The lymph nodes then filter the fluid and remove the impurities from the body. Lymphedema occurs when the lymphatic system is blocked or damaged, and the fluid starts accumulating under the skin and results in swelling of the area. Normally in lymphedema, the arm or a leg is swollen. The swelling of both arm and leg is a rare situation. Sometimes lymphedema can affect the chest wall and abdomen. Primary and secondary lymphedema are the two types of lymphedemas. Mutations in genes cause primary lymphedema, while secondary lymphedema is found in persons with a defect in the lymphatic system that was normal earlier. The disorder of lymphedema is not curable but can be kept under control through proper lymphedema treatment. The symptoms like swelling can identify the disorder. In the beginning stages, the swelling will be soft, but when proper treatment is not taken, and the disorder is neglected, the soft fluid will start thickening and becomes fibrous. The skin will start looking grainy. The patient may start experiencing pain or heaviness in the affected area. Early identification of the disorder may save the patient from suffering pain and take suitable treatment. The increase in patients with chronic diseases, advancements in diagnostic technologies, improvements in healthcare systems are some factors that boost the lymphedema treatment market.
The lymphedema treatment market size is segmented based on technology, disease type, end-user, and geography. According to the technology category, the market can be classified based on lymphoscintigraphy, ultrasound scanning, MRI, X-ray lymphography, ICG lymphography, near-infrared fluorescence imaging, fluorescein sodium micro lymphangiography, and bioimpedance analysis. According to the geography category, it can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. According to the disease type category, it can be divided into cancer, cardiovascular, inflammatory, and other diseases. Hospitals, diagnostic centres, research, academic institutes, etc. come under the end-user category.
The analysis of the technology category depicts that the lymphoscintigraphy segment has the largest share in the lymphedema treatment market due to its non-invasive nature. This technology does not affect the lymphatic vascular endothelium. When the disease type category is analyzed, the cancer segment has the largest share in the market size. The hospitals' segment in the end-user category dominates the Lymphedema treatment market. When the analysis is done based on geography, Asia-Pacific dominates the market.
The global analysis of the lymphedema treatment market reveals that the expected growth in the revenue earned by the market is 35 million USD by the end of 2024, at a CAGR of 7.4%. Advancements in diagnostic technologies, government policies, and grants in favour of the research, investments in diagnostic technologies, etc., are the factors that boost the lymphedema treatment market. However, the cost of the diagnosis is very expensive, and a focus on finding a suitable solution in this regard will rise the lymphedema treatment market.
