Phototherapy Device Market: Rising prevalence of skin diseases is expected to drive the market

Phototherapy Device Market: Introduction

  • Phototherapy devices are used for phototherapy, a form of medical treatment that includes exposure to fluorescent light bulbs or other light sources, such as halogen lamps and light emitting diodes (LEDs), for the treatment of certain medical conditions.
  • Phototherapy devices are used in the treatment of various medical conditions such as Psoriasis, Jaundice, Vitiligo, Eczema, Lichen planus, etc.
  • Phototherapy units are extensively employed to treat neonatal jaundice, which occurs in around 60% to 70% newborns. Phototherapy treatment is carried out to avoid the neurotoxic effects of elevated serum unconjugated bilirubin in jaundice. Phototherapy is a safe, efficient way to minimize or avoid a spike in serum unconjugated bilirubin levels and decrease the need for a transfusion exchange in neonates.

Key Drivers, Restrains, and Opportunities of Global Phototherapy Device Market

  • Increase in prevalence of neonatal jaundice is fueling the demand for phototherapy devices and subsequently, driving its market. Jaundice affects at least 60% of full-term and 80% of pre-term neonates, meaning that about 4–112 million of the 140 million children born worldwide are likely to suffer from this disease in the first two weeks of their lives. Approximately one in ten newborn babies is expected to experience clinically severe jaundice, or hyperbilirubinemia, which requires careful observation and care. Therefore, the prevalence of neonatal jaundice is rising as the number of newborns is increasing and consequently, the market for phototherapy device is also expected to expand in the near future.

  • Moreover, rising prevalence of skin diseases, such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and vitiligo, is also boosting the phototherapy device market. The Global Burden of Disease Project found that skin diseases are the fourth-leading cause of non-fatal disease burden globally. A serious skin issue among is psoriasis, which affects more than 100 million individuals globally. According to World Health Organization, the reported prevalence of psoriasis in countries is between 0.09% and 11.4%, making psoriasis a significant global issue. Phototherapy treatment is used in psoriasis management, which in turn drives the psoriasis device market.
  • Apart from Psoriasis, the incidence of atopic dermatitis, a leading cause of skin-related disease burdens worldwide, is increasing in developing countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. This drives the market of phototherapy devices, as they are used in the treatment of atopic dermatitis.
