Photomedicine Technology Market Analysis

The photomedicine technology market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the treatment and diagnostics procedures initially, significantly impacting the studied market. However, the use of photomedicine for the treatment of COVID-19 patients was effective in increasing immunity, helping tissue repair, and reducing pro-inflammatory cytokines. For instance, in May 2022, Agencia FAPESP published a report stating that light-based therapies like photobiomodulation achieved good results in the rehabilitation of patients with post-COVID-19 complications. Thus, the significant effect of photomedicine on the rehabilitation of patients with post-COVID-19 complications is expected to positively affect the market over the forecast period.

The growth is attributed to the increasing adoption of advanced, laser-based treatments, raising awareness, and new product launches. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery February 2022 update, the total number of surgical and non-surgical facial plastic surgery treatments increased significantly in 2021. Plastic surgeons carried out an additional 600 treatments per year on average than they did in the previous year, a 40% increase out of the projected 1.4 million surgical and non-surgical procedures in 2020. The demand for laser procedures increased by over 10% in 2021 compared to 2020. This indicated that lasers are gaining significant attention in the aesthetic industry, as plenty of procedures can be performed using lasers. Therefore, the increased demand for laser cosmetic procedures is likely to augment the photomedicine technology market's growth.

Rising awareness about non-invasive procedures, advancements in laser delivery procedures, and rising demand for lasers in different healthcare sectors are contributing to the expanding adoption of advanced laser-based therapies. For instance, in March 2021, B-Cure Laser launched a low-level laser therapy (LLLT) device in the United Kingdom, which helps chronic pain sufferers to relieve their pain. These launches are expected to fuel the growth of the photomedicine technology market during the forecast period.

However, safety issues related to photomedicine devices and the high cost of photomedicine procedures are likely to impede the market's growth.

Photomedicine Technology Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Photomedicine Technology Market according to our research experts:

Hair Removal is Expected to Register Significant Growth During the Forecast Period

Hair removal is a treatment to remove hair permanently or temporarily with the help of lasers or minimally invasive devices. Laser hair removal is one of the highly popular aesthetic procedures. Intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser devices are widely accepted and effective dermatology procedures for unwanted hair removal and treatment of a variety of cutaneous conditions.

Due to the rising adoption of advanced laser-based skin treatments, the growing geriatric population, and rising awareness of aesthetics, photomedicine technology is increasingly employed. The advancements in technology and increasing product approvals, along with partnerships and collaborations by key players, are boosting the market's growth. For instance, in March 2022, Cynosure, a company focused on manufacturing and developing energy-based aesthetic and medical treatment systems, entered a distribution partnership with Jeisys Medical KK in Japan. Under the terms of the agreement, Jeisys Medical will have exclusive distribution rights for key premier products within Cynosure's energy-based laser portfolio, including hair removal devices, in Japan. In January 2022, Homiley, a United States-based company, launched its at-home IPL laser hair removal to protect women from razor bumps or ingrown hair. Such partnerships and launches are projected to contribute to the segment's growth.

Studies on the efficacy of various light-based hair removal methods are expected to increase the demand for photomedicine in the segment and drive the market. For instance, as per the study published by the International Journal of Trichology in February 2022, the frequency of light-based home hair removal devices is quite high, with patient satisfaction and less incidence of side effects. Hence, such studies reveal patient usage and satisfaction with various light-based treatments for hair removal, which are expected to boost the market over the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Retain Significant Growth During the Forecast Period

North America is expected to witness significant growth in the market due to the rising incidence of cancer, increased use of lasers, the strong presence of industry players in the region, better healthcare infrastructure, awareness among people and healthcare industry stakeholders about available technologies, and the high concentration of market players in the United States.

According to the American Cancer Society 2022 update, an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases were diagnosed in the United States in 2022. As per the same source, an estimated 290,560 new breast cancer cases were diagnosed in 2022. Since photomedicine is used for treating cancerous diseases, the high burden of cancer will likely augment the region's market. The advancements in technology, increasing product approvals, partnerships, and collaborations by key players are helping the market's growth in the region. For instance, in March 2021, Solta Medical launched the Clear + Brilliant Touch laser in the United States, which delivers a customized and more comprehensive treatment protocol by providing patients of all ages and skin types the benefits of two wavelengths. Such approvals are likely to augment photomedicine usage in the region.

Several organizations and companies are focusing on launching innovative technologies in the market. In 2021, the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital investigated the effects of light on human biology and discovered new diagnostic and therapeutic uses of light. Such factors are likely to fuel the market over the forecast period.
