Report Description

Medical Laser Market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of ~15% during the forecast period (2021-2027).
Medical Lasers are medical devices which focus light precisely on the required area to treat or remove tissues. The term ‘laser’ stands for light amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Ordinary light like that from a light bulb has many wavelengths and spreads in all directions. Laser lights on the other hand have a specific wavelength. It is focused in a narrow beam and creates a very high-intensity light. Since lasers can focus very accurately on tiny areas, they can be used for very precise surgical work or for cutting through tiny tissue sections (in place of scalpel). Lasers are used in all kinds of surgical procedures, from cosmetic surgery (to remove tattoos, scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, sunspots, spider veins, hair etc.), refractive eye surgery, dental procedures, and general surgery (for treatments of cataract, breast, tumor, plastic surgery, and other such procedures).

Key reasons for the growth of the medical laser market is driven by the increase in prevalence of eye disorders of geriatric population and rise in number of patients which use advanced laser based treatments. In addition to this, the surge in number of cosmetic and non-invasive surgeries and increase in importance of aesthetics laser procedures are some of the major factors which boost the global medical laser market. However, stringent safety regulations and high rate of failure of laser based surgical procedure have restrained the market growth. On the contrary, increase in disposable incomes and growth in laser treatment demand in emerging countries are expected to offer significant profitable opportunities for the market players, which leads to increase growth in the global medical laser market. Treatments can also be expensive and are therefore not accessible to everyone. Laser eye surgery can cost anywhere from US$600 to US$8,000 or more based on your healthcare plan and the provider or facility you use for your surgery. The costs of laser skin therapies can range from US$200 to over US$3,400, according to the University of Michigan Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center.

Average Cost of Laser Refractive Surgery (US$), Q4-2015 to Q2-2019
