Wed, 24 July 2019 11:17

Dermatologists and surgeons use dermatology devices for the diagnosis of skin disorders and to improve the condition of the skin in patients. Recent technological advances in dermatology devices, rising healthcare expenditure, and high growth in emerging countries are among the key trends driving the demand for dermatology devices. The high incidence of non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers is also increasing the demand for dermatology devices in diagnosis and treatment. According to the WHO, every year, around 132,000 melanoma skin cancers, and 2 to 3 million non-melanomas occur globally.

Market Segmentation

The global dermatology devices market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, and end user.

On the basis of type, the dermatology devices market can be segmented into diagnostic devices and treatment devices. Among the two, treatment devices account for a prominent market share. The treatment devices segment can be further sub-segmented into light therapy devices, electrosurgical devices, cryotherapy, and lasers. The light therapy devices sub-segment holds a significant market share, owing to the widespread use of these devices for the treatment of skin lesions. The diagnostic devices segment can be further sub-segmented into imaging devices, dermatoscopes, and microscopes. The imaging devices sub-segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period, due to technological advancements and increasing awareness about the available aesthetic procedures in the market.

On the basis of application, the dermatology devices market can be segmented into skin cancer diagnosis, acne, psoriasis, skin rejuvenation, warts, and others. The skin cancer diagnosis segment holds a prominent market share, owing to the increasing incidence and high prevalence of skin cancer, particularly melanoma.
