Light Therapy Market Dynamics:

Market Drivers:

The drastic rise in dermatological cases like psoriasis, acne vulgaris and wrinkles in not only developed but developing countries as well, has raised the demand for light therapy. Widespread deployment of broad band (UVB) as well as narrow band ultraviolet (UVB) phototherapy for the treatment of various skin disorders will be a significant business opportunity for the market brands. Another growth rendering factor can be the heightened use of handheld devices as well as light boxes for treating certain skin issues. Light therapy helps accelerate cellular rejuvenation along with blood circulation, and the soaring awareness about these benefits among the mass should augment the market position in the years to come.

Some of the key UV light therapy methods include UVB phototherapy, psoralen, and ultraviolet A, which are enjoying significant demand to cut down symptoms associated with psoriasis. In certain cases, light therapy, coupled with topical tablets, brings down inflammation and curbs the generation of skin cells. Several vendors are focused on developing new advanced devices and equipment while emphasizing on product innovation to boost their profit margins. 

The rising depression rate worldwide is also one of the reasons for the elevated growth of the light therapy market. The National Institute of Mental Health reveals that nearly 56 million individuals in the US were affected by mental illnesses in 2019. 

Market Restraints:

A large portion of the worldwide population is unaware of light therapy and its benefits, which can be a growth-impeding factor in the future.

With that said, the rapidly expanding urban populations across the globe with a surging knowledge about the latest treatment options and the tremendous growth of the healthcare sector across emerging regions will present lucrative opportunities to the companies.
