Laser Therapy Market Size, Share, Trends, Application Analysis and Growth Forecast to 2027

The concept of advanced Laser therapy is a typical non-invasive sound medical treatment that applies the light of a specific or prime wavelength to physically treat several multiple diseases.


Market Research Future (MRFR) anticipates strong CAGR of 9.2% in the global laser therapy market over the forecast period of 2017-2023. The expansion of the global laser therapy is the result of various market dynamics, out of which, the surging prevalence of diseases such as cataract and arthritis bears profound weightage. Laser therapy is the standard line of treatment in cases of cataract.

Laser-based ophthalmology is highly preferred over other methods of treatment. YAG LASER, excimer LASER, femtosecond LASER, and others are the most commonly used lasers in ophthalmology. The widespread prevalence of cataract, as well as arthritis, promote the growth of the global laser therapy market. Expanding base of old population complements this factor since the elderly populace is more prone to acquiring diseases such as arthritis and cataract which induces additional demand for laser therapy.

Heightened demand for minimally-invasive and non-invasive procedures is a major drive behind the growth of the market. Consumers are highly inclined towards medical procedures which do not involve incisions and cuts. Additionally, laser therapy is extensively used in dermatology and cosmetology. Skyrocketing demand for aesthetics also encourages the growth of the global laser therapy market. Use of laser therapy in dentistry is also a key market influencer. On the contrary, the growth of the global laser therapy market might be impeded by high costs associated with laser therapy.
