Dermatology Devices Market Entry Strategies, Countermeasures of Economic Impact

Posted by rushi007 on June 6th, 2019

Until about a decade ago, skin diseases were not considered to be much of a concern among the medical fraternity, with focus mainly towards combating major diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hospital-acquired pneumonias. However, in primary care settings, skin disorders are the common diseases prevalent in tropical areas. HIV infection related skin diseases are especially common in sub-Saharan geographies. In 2015, according to Turkish Journal of Family Medicine & Primary Care, infections related to skin are common worldwide with a prevalence of pyoderma between 0.2% and 35%, for tinea capitis it is around 19.7%, for scabies it ranges between 0.2% and 24%, and for viral skin disorders it ranges between 0.4% and 9%.

Market Dynamics

Rise in number of skin infections and rise in demand for skin rejuvenation is expected to propel growth of the dermatology disease market. Rise in demand for skin rejuvenation therapy is backed up by increasing use of radiofrequency techniques, which in turn is expected to favor the market for dermatology devices market in the near future. Furthermore, high prevalence of skin mycoses globally is projected to have a positive effect on the growth for dermatology devices market. According to article published in 2008 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., high prevalence of skin mycoses was around 20–25% and thus, was considered as one of the most prevalent forms of infection worldwide. The last decade has witnessed a spurt in incidence of skin diseases caused by pathogens such as anthropophilic and zoophilic dermatophytesm, which are especially prevalent in regions tropical regions due to the favorable growth environment. Also, change in lifestyle and awareness about the treatment is also one of the major factor affecting positively the growth of dermatology devices market. Scar and tattoo removal are some of the examples that require dermatology devices. According to Deccan Chronicles, in 2016, there were 25,000 tattoo removal cases recorded in India of the 128,218 cases worldwide, as revealed by a survey conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) in 2015.

Advancement in technology is expected to be a threat for conventional treatment methods in the dermatology devices market

The treatment procedures that are minimally invasive are gaining attention in the medical community and among patients, worldwide. Therefore, there is a high demand for devices such as microdermabrasion, pens for pigmented lesions, scars, and loose skin, and laser therapy globally. The conventional surgical procedures used for the treatment of skin disorders are replaced with these devices, as conventional procedures leaves out unwanted scars post-surgery. Some of the safe and effective treatment options for acne scarring include laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Researches based on the effectiveness of laser and light therapies in treating mild to moderate acne is still going on.
