The Indian solid and diode medical lasers market generated revenue of $12.3 million in 2019, and it is expected to progress with a CAGR of 13.7% during the forecast period (2020–2030). The increasing adoption of aesthetic treatments, supportive government initiatives for the advancement of the healthcare infrastructure, growing aging population, and high number of seminars, exhibitions, and conferences being conducted to increase the awareness among consumers about the new laser devices available are the key factors driving the industry.
The continuing COVID-19 pandemic has imposed an adverse impact on the Indian solid and diode medical lasers industry. This is primarily attributed to the hindrance in the supply chain, financial crisis, as well as operational challenges within and outside national boundaries. However, these products are expected to witness a notable increase in demand in the last quarter of 2020, after the restarting of operations in manufacturing plants, lifting of the lockdown, and streamlining of import and export activities.
The diode laser systems category accounted for the larger share in the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market during the historical period (2014–2019), based on product. This was owing to the wide applications of such systems in dermatology, dentistry, and several other procedures. Moreover, end users are adopting these laser systems to provide more effective and convenient treatment. Additionally, the availability of a range of diode laser systems from international and national players is supporting the growth of this category.
In terms of region, the southern region held the dominating share in the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market in 2019, due to the increasing number of hospitals here. Moreover, dermatology professionals’ preference for diode and solid laser systems, adoption of technologically advanced dermatological procedures, increasing aging population, and improving healthcare infrastructure are some other major factors that would boost the growth of the market in South India at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The major trend being observed in the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market is the increasing consciousness about appearance and desire to have glowing skin. Dermal problems, including cellulite, fat storage, scars, fine lines, discoloration, acne, large pores, broken blood vessels, and age spots, have a major impact on the skin’s appearance. Due to this, people go for laser treatments to get glowing skin, or for a fresh appearance through hyperpigmentation treatment and hair removal.
Laser procedures are quite useful in the removal of body and facial hair, acne scars, and tattoos and for skin treatment and surgeries. According to the International Society of Plastic Surgery (ISAPS)’s 2018 report, 895,896 aesthetic procedures were performed in India that year, among which 505,103 were non-surgical laser procedures. Therefore, the increase in the demand for aesthetic treatments is leading to the growth of the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market.
According to the India Brand Equity Foundation, there were 15,000 hospitals in the country in 2015, which increased to around 20,000 in 2017. Moreover, in 2017, the country’s healthcare expenditure was 1.3% of the gross domestic product (GDP), which is targeted to increase to 2.5% by 2025. Further, the government has set a target to increase the healthcare budget from $245.2 million in 2019 to $298.2 million in 2020–21. Hence, the rise in the healthcare expenditure, along with the supportive measurements of the government, is expected to fuel the growth of the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market.
Seminars, exhibitions, and conferences are being organized to create awareness among medical professionals regarding new laser technologies. For instance, the Indian Dental Association (IDA) conducted the 72nd Indian Dental Conference (IDC), regarding the latest dental science technologies, on January 18–20, 2019, in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Thus, the growing awareness about the advancements in solid and diode medical laser systems would drive the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market.
Aging leads to the loss of muscle tone and thinning skin, which give the face a flabby or droopy appearance. Due to this, the aging population develops wrinkles, dryness, pigmentary alteration, and sagging. India holds a vast population of elderly people. According to the 2019 World Population Ageing report, 87.1 million individuals were aged 65 years or above in the country in 2019, and this number would reach 128.9 million by 2030. Therefore, the rising geriatric population drives the growth of the Indian solid and diode medical lasers market.
