Rising Prevalence of Skin Diseases Propelling Demand for Medical Lasers

Rising Prevalence of Skin Diseases Propelling Demand for Medical Lasers

The increasing incidence of skin problems and chronic diseases is boosting the requirement for medical lasers across the world. Additionally, the surging geriatric population in several countries is propelling the demand for laser-based treatments, which is, in turn, fueling the progress of the medical lasers market. This is because elderly people are highly vulnerable to various skin disorders, on account of the reduced glandular and vascular network in their skin layers and the loss of fibrous tissue in their skin.

With increasing age, the appearance of the skin changes drastically and the prevalence of pigmentary alteration, wrinkles, skin sagging, and dryness rises tremendously. As per the estimates of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the population of people in the age group-above 60 years would increase to 437 million, 324 million, 107 million, and 58 million in China, India, the U.S., and Brazil, respectively, by 2050.


Besides these factors, the rapid technological advancements and innovations being made in medical lasers are also fueling the sales of these devices across the globe. These innovations in medical lasers are making the provision of benefits such as reduction in pain intensity, small incisions, and rapid recovery after cosmetic or surgical procedures. Additionally, these technological advancements are causing a sharp rise in the application of lasers for several cosmetic treatment procedures such as skin rejuvenation, body contouring, and hair removal.

Out of these, the diode laser systems category is predicted to register the fastest growth in the market in the forthcoming years. Out of the various types of solid-state laser systems, the usage of the potassium titanyl phosphate, Ho:YAG systems, and Er:YAG systems was very high in the past years. Geographically, the medical lasers market would demonstrate the fastest growth in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region in the future, as per the forecast of the market research company, P&S Intelligence. 

Hence, it can be said with surety that the demand for medical lasers would skyrocket all over the world in the upcoming years, mainly because of the rising incidence of skin problems and various chronic diseases, the surging geriatric population, and the rapid technological advancements being made in medical lasers around the world.
