In the field of Ophthalmology, approximately 596,000 LASIK surgeries were performed in the United States in 2015. Increasing awareness about minimally-invasive procedures, advancements in laser delivery procedures, and rising demand for cosmetic surgeries are contributing to the expanding adoption of advanced laser-based therapies, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the growth of the global photomedicine technology marketduring the forecast period.
Additionally, increased awareness of aesthetics and high incidence of skin problems such as neonatal jaundice, acne, and psoriasis are also driving the market.

High Cost of Photomedicine Procedures

Cost of cosmetic surgery in the United States is higher than the developing countries. Moreover, people have to pay from their pocket, as cosmetic surgeries are not covered under insurance schemes. Developing countries have been attracting an increasing number of international patients by building state-of-the-art facilities and offering sought-after healthcare services at a fraction of the cost of the United States healthcare system. The price difference matters mostly for elective procedures, including cosmetic surgeries. High cost and low insurance coverage of cosmetic surgeries are restraining the market of photomedicine technology as cosmetic surgeries represent a major part of the photomedicine market. High cost of photomedicine therapies, coupled with expensive phototherapy devices, and the scarcity of trained personnel can also hamper the market.
Safety issues related to photomedicine devices are also restraining the growth of photomedicine technology market.

Asia-Pacific to Register Highest CAGR

North America is dominating the market due to the high buying power of the customers, favorable reimbursement policies, and an increase in the number of cosmetic surgeries in the United States. For example, in 2012 approximately 45,534 procedures for body contouring were performed for weight reduction.
The Asia-Pacific region observed a fast-paced growth due to rise in disposable income, increase in healthcare expenditure, and high potential for cost savings on aesthetic procedures.
