Aesthetic/Cosmetic Lasers Market by Type, Application, End User - Forecasts to 2021: Market is Projected to Reach USD 1,132.7 Million by 2021 from USD 697.6 Million in 2016, Growing at a CAGR of 10.2% - Research and Markets
The cosmetic lasers market is projected to reach USD 1,132.7 Million by 2021 from USD 697.6 Million in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period. Increasing preference for noninvasive cosmetic procedures, increasing disposable income, technological advancements, and rising medical tourism are the major drivers of the aesthetic lasers market. However, lack of reimbursement will restrain the growth of this market.
The cosmetic lasers market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end user, and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into standalone lasers and multiplatform lasers. Standalone lasers are further segmented into carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers, erbium YAG lasers, diode lasers, pulsed dye lasers, Nd:YAG lasers, alexandrite lasers, other standalone lasers (argon, ruby, krypton lasers, and erbium:glass lasers). Standalone lasers have advantages such as simplicity of functioning and ease of use which has significantly boosted their adoption and accounts for the highest market share of the aesthetic lasers market in 2016.
The market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). Among these regional segments, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the global cosmetic lasers market. However, the Asia-pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth in this regional segment can be attributed to factors changing lifestyles, rising incidences of skin damage, and increasing medical tourism in the region will drive the growth of this market.
