Europe region held dominant position in the global compression garments and stockings market in 2018, accounting for 46.9% share in terms of value, followed by North America.
Players in the market are required to follow stringent guidelines while production of medical compression garments. Three main objectives must be reached that is optimal therapeutic efficacy, product reliability, and best comfort. A patient with a weak skin, venous ulcer or some other wounds can suffer from shearing due to the garment. This in turn limits the design space for potential conceptual ideas as patient safety is a major concern.
Complications related to improper use of compression stockings, may also limit growth of the market. Although the application of compression stockings appear simple, inappropriately worn stockings can cause significant problems. Such as breaking of skin, especially in older, malnourished patients, and those with thin and brittle skin.
Ensuring the consistency and repeatability of the applied pressure throughout its use is a major challenge for compression garments. This is owing to the limited sizing options of most compression garments. Key players in the market can focus on integrating sensors in compression garments to enhance their efficacy.
Market players can also focus on developing non-pneumatic anti-shock compression garments as an effective intervention for intradialytic hypotension.

The use of specialized compression stockings, sleeves and gloves has increased in patients suffering from lymphedema, an incurable disease. Use of compression stockings can help prevent complications such as tissue damage, swelling, and infection.

The total cost of these garments can reach US$ 960 for patients that require custom garments. Moreover, compression garments are needed to be replaced two to four times a year, which further increases the healthcare expenditure.
