Americas: largest photomedicine market

The market in North America, particularly the US, is the innovation hub for photomedicine products owing to the presence of key vendors such as Verilux and Koninklijke Philips. A significant number of vendors are entering the market by offering novel and advanced products. With more than 5% of the population staying in the northern areas of the region that have limited sunlight and experience extreme cold climates, the market is growing at a constant rate.

“Light therapy products such as light therapy boxes are predominantly used by domestic users as substitutes for sunlight. Commercial users such as corporate offices, spas, salons, and hotels also use the light therapy box and the desk lamp to provide the required environmental conditions as therapy. Due to the benefits provided by these products, their sale is high in the region,” says Amber Chourasia, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on health and wellness.

Photomedicine market in EMEA

EMEA occupies the second largest market share with countries such as Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland as the major contributors. High disposable income and cold climatic conditions propel market growth in the region. The prevalence of SAD has increased the demand for light therapy products such as light therapy boxes and floor and desk lamps among domestic and commercial users. The region also experiences a high demand for both laser-based devices and phototherapy.

“The Western European market is also affected by the growing number of healthcare users who use light therapy for various healthcare applications such as, dermatology treatments and skin care, neonatal jaundice, psoriasis, and other osteology treatments. The growing demand for light therapy products in healthcare applications increases the sales revenue,” adds Amber.

Photomedicine market in APAC

The market in APAC is expected to see gradual growth during the forecast period with the growth and improvement in the healthcare infrastructure of the region. The major countries contributing to the revenue of this region are Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, and China. In recent years, the incidence of chronic diseases such as skin cancer has increased in this region because of cross-border health risks precipitated by globalization and changes in lifestyle.

Although the climatic conditions in some countries in the region limit the demand for certain products such as light therapy boxes, dawn simulators, and floor and desk lamps, the market sees growth in the healthcare segment. Circadian rhythm disorders, psoriasis, and some psychiatric disorders such as bulimia nervosa and premenstrual dysphoric disorder among others require the use of light therapy. Lasers are used in ophthalmology for non-invasive treatment of diseases of the eye as well as vision correction.
