The global aesthetic lasers and energy devices market growth is majorly driven by continuous technological advancements and approval for new aesthetic lasers and energy devices. For instance, in June 2020, Sciton, a leading manufacturer of medical and aesthetic lasers and light source technologies, launched the biggest new products in the history of the organization. This new product launch, on the much-anticipated platform mJOULE, includes a new fractional treatment, MOXI, and BBL HERO, the largest advancement in the history of pulsed light-based technology.
Also, in April 2020, WONTECH, a Korean laser, and energy-based medical aesthetic device company received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510 (K) clearance for its hybrid Nd: YAG & Alexandrite laser device, SANDRO DUAL.
Growing demand for non-invasive skin treatment procedures is also driving the growth of the market. rising awareness amongst people about non-invasive surgeries with lesser side effects has increased the adoption of non-invasive aesthetic lasers and energy devices. Non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with lasers based, Intense Pulsed Light-based, and LED equipment is designed to provide quick and faster recovery, hence, reduced hospital stay. For instance, in 2015, Lumenis launched a new ResurFX laser system for fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments.
In addition, rising combination therapies for various aesthetic procedures are boosting the market growth. The laser-based aesthetic devices are used widely in various skin rejuvenation procedures. For instance, in tattoo removal aesthetic procedures, the use of single laser-based devices is sometimes challenging. The inks used in the lasers based aesthetic lasers and energy devices get retained inside when performing multiple sessions for tattoo removal. In some cases, tattoo clearance becomes incomplete and takes subsequent sessions. Some adverse reactions, such as blistering and dyschromia, may happen during the treatment tenure. These challenges can be overcome by using the combined mode of tattoo removal treatment, which increases the demand for Aesthetic Lasers and Energy Devices. For instance, combining fractional lasers with Q-switched laser has minimized the post-treatment side effects such as blistering.
Furthermore, the growth of the market is driven by rising incidences of skin cancer and obesity globally and increasing adoption of body contouring devices. The rise in the incidences of severe skin damage owing to several reasons, including road accidents is also boosting the market growth.
However, the high cost of products and stringent regulations for device approval are hampering the growth of the aesthetic lasers and energy devices market. Also, the market growth is likely to hinder by adverse side-effects related to aesthetic treatment. These devices are associated with several side effects, as these medications work differently on different skin types and textures. Absorption of excess laser light can result in skin discoloration and blistering for a darker skin tone than lighter ones. Such post-treatment side effects create a block in opting for these treatments.
The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the aesthetic lasers and energy devices market significantly. The medical aesthetic sector is facing several challenges in its manufacturing and supply chain, including delivering products to end-users. The market has observed a negative growth with a decline in the product demand from end-users, temporary closure of several end-user facilities (including beauty centers and spas), limited operations in most of the industries disrupted supply chain several other challenges faced in essential services due to the lockdown.
On the basis of product type, the global aesthetic lasers and energy devices market is segmented into body contouring devices, laser resurfacing devices, aesthetic ophthalmology devices, and others. Among these, the laser resurfacing devices segment accounted for the largest market share in 2019, owing to rising awareness among individuals toward the usage of these devices for skin or body resurfacing. In addition, laser resurfacing devices offer minimally invasive procedures for performing skin resurfacing. On the other hand, the aesthetic ophthalmology devices segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period, due to the increased usage of laser technologies in the field of ophthalmology.
The aesthetic lasers and energy devices market is further segmented based on the application into skin rejuvenation, hair removal, scar removal/skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and others. Among these, the skin tightening segment is expected to dominate the aesthetic lasers and energy devices market over the forecast period, due to the rising baby boomer population across the globe. Baby boomers are widely adopting laser technology to tighten their skin for improving their self-appearance.
Based on technology, the energy-based technology market is growing at the fastest growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the growing demand for aesthetic procedures coupled with the increasing number of hospitals offering aesthetics. The ability to produce highly precise and controllable effects on tissues, microscopes, and minimally invasive delivery systems, easy adaptability to fiberoptics, and the potential to treat some conditions by laser-based and light-based or sound waves on a specific target without touching the tissue with a solid instrument, make these devices more preferred.
The laser segment held the largest aesthetic lasers and energy devices market share in 2019, due to the growing demand for minimally invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation and to remove scars, hair, tattoos, and pigmented lesions are high. Laser-based aesthetic devices are gaining popularity to perform the mentioned and other procedures because of their ability to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells at a faster rate. This ability of aesthetic laser device promotes rapid and painless healing. Non-surgical fat reduction with laser techniques also has become prevalent globally.
