Rising incidence of skin disorders and increasing awareness on aesthetic procedures drives the global dermatology devices market
Over the years, the incidence of skin cancer has risen rapidly across the globe. According to a study by the National Cancer Institute (U.S.), skin cancer represents 4.6% of all new cancer cases in the U.S. It is estimated that there will be 76,100 new cases of melanoma of the skin in 2014. The need to detect and treat such diseases at the earliest possible stage has driven the development of sophisticated and sensitive diagnostic instruments in the market. This in turn has increased competition among manufacturers and aided significantly in market growth.
The increasing demand for aesthetic procedures is driving the market for treatment devices as well as aesthetic lasers and cosmetic dermatology. These lasers are used in aesthetic procedures such as hair removal, skin rejuvenation, acne, psoriasis, tattoo removal, wrinkle removal, skin resurfacing, vascular lesions, and pigmented lesions, among other skin diseases. Lasers with longer wavelengths and better configurations have expanded the range of beauty treatments, making the aesthetic lasers industry a lucrative one. The increasing demand for aesthetic procedures is pushing the market for dermatology treatment devices.
