Analyst’s Views:

The global photo rejuvenation devices market is poised to witness steady growth over the forecast period driven by rising consumer awareness about beauty treatments and increasing demand for non-invasive aesthetic procedures. The non-invasive nature and minimal downtime associated with photo rejuvenation treatments will continue attracting more patients. Additionally, growing affordability of these devices will boost their adoption rates.

The market is witnessing immense opportunities emerging from developing economies of Asia Pacific as their spending power on healthcare and beauty treatments rise. The APAC region is expected to be the fastest growing market owing to factors such as large patient pool, increasing medical tourism, and availability of cost-effective photo rejuvenation procedures. North America will continue dominating the global photo rejuvenation devices market. However high device costs and lack of reimbursement for aesthetic treatments limits its growth prospects.

While the market shows positive outlook overall, device recalls and lack of clinical studies act as restraints. Stringent regulatory approvals also delay new product launches. The market is highly competitive with the presence of both global and regional players. This puts pressure on pricing and promotion spending. However, growing inclination towards combination therapies utilizing multiple photo rejuvenation technologies will provide opportunities to differentiate product offerings and stay ahead of competition.

The mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships among players will intensify over the coming years to gain a stronger foothold in Asia Pacific and emerging regions.
