Tattoo Removal Market Analysis

The tattoo removal market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

Like many other industries that require person-to-person contact, the tattoo industry also shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic 2020. In the initial days of the pandemic, several countries were facing lockdowns. They suspended trade with other countries and implemented travel restrictions, leading to the decline in tattoo removal procedures in the first half of 2020. Moreover, the rising cases of COVID-19 are expected to have a significant short-term negative impact on tattoo removal procedures. There was tremendous pressure on the hospitals and other healthcare centers in providing services to COVID-19 patients, which is one of the factors inhibiting the hospitals from delivering services. For instance, according to a survey report published by Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance in November 2020, 99.78% of those polled claimed that COVID-19 had a negative impact on their aesthetic practices, with 86% reporting a decline in revenue and 72% admitting they had no backup plan in place which shows a negative impact on the studied market. However, with the decline in the COVID-19 cases and large-scale vaccination programs around the world, the tattoo removal market is expected to regain its full potential over the forecast period.

Various research studies have been published on the impact of tattoo removal. For instance, in January 2021, a research study published stated that "Laser tattoo removal: Fundamental principles and practical approach" as the number of people who get tattoos increases, so is the number of people who wish to have their tattoos removed. Compared to other methods, laser-based devices are associated with the best efficacy and least side effects in tattoo removal. Recognizing and mastering multiple factors including skin types, nature and color of tattoos, and proper selection of laser parameters such as wavelength, fluence, and pulse, are central to achieving an optimal tattoo removal outcome. Hence, such studies provide insight into the advantages of various methods. This will increase market growth in the upcoming future.

Product launches are another factor in the market growth. For instance, in March 2020, Lumenis Ltd launched its newest, innovative platform, the Stellar M22. The Stellar M22 is built and based on the gold standard treatment capabilities for the treatment of vascular lesions, skin texture, tone, and hair removal, and it is used for tattoo removal. Such launches will increase the market growth in the upcoming period. However, the high cost of the procedure primarily hinders the growth of the tattoo removal market.
