Lymphedema Treatment Market: Rise in the number of lymphedema cases globally to drive the market

Lymphedema involves the accumulation of lymph fluid in fatty tissues just beneath the skin. The condition is caused due to impaired flow in the lymphatic system of a person and is observed either in the legs or arms or in both of them. It can also affect the abdomen, neck, genitals, and face of a person, depending on the portion of the body which has undergone treatment. Primary lymphedema is generally present at birth, while secondary lymphedema is caused due to dysfunction or damage to the lymphatic system. Cancer-related treatment is a prominent cause of secondary lymphedema. Surgery, radiation therapy, or cancer itself can hinder the flow of lymph fluid, leading to lymphedema. Symptoms of lymphedema include feeling of tightness or heaviness; swelling in the legs, arms, or other parts of the body; ache or discomfort; and fibrosis, which means thickening or hardening of the skin.

Rise in the number of lymphedema cases globally is a prominent factor driving the growth of the global lymphedema treatment market. According to some estimates, 140-250 million people across the globe are affected by lymphedema. In the U.S., around 1-2 million people suffer from primary lymphedema, while 2-3 million are affected with secondary lymphedema. Rise in incidence of cancer, especially breast cancer, is another factor boosting the number of lymphedema cases globally. Patients undergoing radiation therapy or surgery for breast cancer treatment are at a high risk of developing lymphedema. Breast cancer is the most commonly observed cancer among women and is the second-most common type of cancer. According to the World Cancer Research Fund, an estimated 2 million cases of breast cancer were reported in 2018 across the world.

Launch of new medical devices by companies is another factor contributing to the growth of the global lymphedema treatment market. In May 2017, Tactile Systems Technology, Inc., a prominent manufacturer of at-home therapy devices, announced the launch of Flexitouch system in the U.S. market. Flexitouch system is a pneumatic compression device for use in the treatment of lymphedma of neck and head. The device, which was granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2016, is the only pneumatic compression system that can deliver non-invasive therapy to patients and can help in stimulating their lymphatic system.

Ongoing research for the development of novel therapies for the treatment of lymphedema is another driver of the global lymphedema treatment market. According to a new study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine, a new molecular mechanism primarily responsible for causing lymphedema, along with a drug (bestatin) which has the potential for hindering the process, was uncovered in May 2017. Bestatin is currently undergoing clinical trials for the treatment of secondary lymphedema. Positive outcome from the trials is expected to be a step forward toward developing new treatment option for the management of lymphedema.
