According to Vision Research Reports, the global medical laser systems market size surpassed at US$ 2.2 Bn in 2020 and to reach US$ 8.3 bn by 2028.

The market growth is largely driven by advancements in laser technology, strides taken by photonics in the past decade, a growing number of research activities, and collaborations between medical and research institutes. The soaring demand for solid-state lasers will provide a boost to the prospects of the medical laser systems market during the forecast period despite treading through uncertain times during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rise in prevalence of various chronic conditions, such as ophthalmic, dermatology, cardiovascular, neurology, and orthopedic, leading to associated surgeries are anticipated to augment the global medical laser systems market during the forecast period. Moreover, technological advancements leading to the development of innovative laser devices, increase in geriatric population, faster adoption of medical lasers, especially in developing markets, stringent regulatory guidelines, and efficiency of lasers in minimally invasive surgeries are expected to propel the global medical laser systems market.

Medical lasers are devices, which use light source for treatment of various medical conditions. Laser technologies utilize specific wavelengths and create higher intensity beam for cutting or removing through tissues. Medical laser surgical procedures include cosmetic surgeries, ophthalmic surgeries, dental surgeries, general surgeries, and orthopedic surgeries. Standard guidelines are established for medical laser manufacturers for production of medical lasers using innovative technologies. Key players offering innovative diode, crossbeam, and solid-state lasers are likely to propel the market at the global level.

Adoption of Medical Laser Systems May Potentially Fasten COVID-19 Diagnostics

The onset of the novel COVID-19 pandemic is expected to provide a new window of opportunity for players operating in the current medical laser systems market. Although the demand for a few types of non-essential laser treatments is likely to witness a slight decline, the adoption of medical laser systems for COVID-19 diagnostics is likely to grow. At present, COVID-19 diagnostics involves a swab test that typically takes several hours. However, researchers are exploring the potential applications of lasers to speed up COVID-19 diagnostics. A group of scientists from different universities in the U.S. is collaborating with each other to develop a diagnostic tool to identify different viruses using laser beams.

At present, considerable efforts are being made to streamline the screening process and make it more efficient. Medical laser systems have the potential to provide solutions to address these challenges. For instance, in May 2020, QuantLase Imaging Lab announced that the organization has successfully developed cutting-edge laser equipment that is likely to enable large-scale testing and mass screenings. Stakeholders operating in the current medical laser systems market landscape are expected to improvise, invest in research, and develop new solutions to capitalize on the looming opportunities.

Increase in Ophthalmic and Cosmetic Surgeries to Propel Global Market

Increase in cosmetic and dermatology minimal invasive procedures boosts demand for medical laser systems across the globe. Efficiency of innovative diode lasers and solid-state lasers in offering non-scarring, bloodless operation drives demand for medical laser surgeries. In 2018, 15.9 million cosmetic minimal invasive procedures were performed in the U.S., along with 5.8 million reconstructive procedures. Around 4.5 million tumor removal medical procedures were performed in 2017 and 313,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2018.

Increase in incidence of ophthalmic disorders leading to associated surgeries, such as LASIK, is likely to drive the ophthalmology segment during forecast period. According to cataract statistics in the U.K., 330,000 cataract operations are performed every year in the country. Moreover, 30% of people aged 65 years and above are expected to have cataract in one or both eyes. Increase in incidence of cataract is anticipated to augment the global medical laser systems market. LASIK is a widely preferred surgery in the treatment of severe visual impairments. In the U.S., around 718,000 surgeries are projected to be performed by 2020. In Europe, around 757,000 laser eye surgeries are likely to be performed by 2020. The factors mentioned above are expected to augment the global medical laser systems market.

Rise in Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to Drive Global Market

Rise in prevalence of chronic diseases leads to increase in the number of surgical procedures. This, in turn, is anticipated to propel the demand for medical laser systems across the globe. In 2016, India had 54.5 million patients with cardiovascular disease. Moreover, the estimated prevalence of cardiovascular diseases increased to 15% in China in 2016, affecting 6,037 per 100,000 people. CVD accounts for over 40% deaths in China. Use of low-level laser therapy in treating inflammation is another factor propelling the market, especially in developing countries. According to the NCBI research in 2018, multiple sclerosis is the most common and prevailing disease in Asia Pacific, affecting around five to 20 people per 100,000 in South Asia and Japan.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by 2020, astigmatism is likely to affect one in every 10 people in the U.S. Farsightedness affects around 8.4% of the U.S. population aged over 40, which is around 14.2 million people. Nearsightedness affects 23.9% of the U.S. population aged above 40, which is around 34 million people.

According to the CDC, 17.2% of the population of the U.S. suffers from cataract, which is around 20.5 million people aged over 40 years. By 2028, cataract is expected to affect 30 million people in the U.S.
