Medical Lasers Market Size, Leading Players, Growth and Future Scope

People across the globe are becoming increasingly conscious regarding their physical appearance, attributed to which the number of aesthetic surgical procedures has growing significantly in the past few years. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 1,862,506 breast augmentation procedures were performed across the globe. In addition to this, as per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 17.7 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2018, which was a growth of 2% from 2017. This growing number of aesthetic surgical procedures is creating increasing demand for medical lasers, as they are widely used during the surgical procedures.

Medical lasers are devices which make use of precisely focused light sources for treating or removing tissues. Laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Ordinary light has many wavelengths and spread in all directions; laser light however has a specific wavelength, which is focused in a narrow beam and creates a very-high intensity light. Since lasers can focus on tiny areas accurately, they can be utilized for precise surgical work or for cutting tissues. If used properly, laser can allow the surgeons for accomplish more complex tasks, decrease postoperative discomfort, reduce blood loss, achieve better wound healing, and reduce the chance of wound infection.

Attributed to these factors, the medical lasers market is predicted to advance at a significant pace in the coming years. Different types of medical lasers are gas laser systems, solid-state laser systems, dye laser systems, and diode laser systems. Out of these, the solid-state laser systems were the most in demand in the past because of their large application base. Among the various types of solid-state laser systems, neodymium: yttrium—aluminium—garnet laser systems are extensively utilized for treating posterior capsular opacification, acute angle-closure glaucoma, peripheral iridotomy, and for surgical iridectomy.
