Global Dermatoscope Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 has affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand for drugs and vaccines, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others faced problems with regard to the transportation of drugs and vaccines from one place to another.
Quarantine, traveling constraints, and social distancing measures are likely to lead to a steep decline in business and consumer spending. Furthermore, healthcare providers were facing challenges in terms of additional manpower, equipment, consumables, and other resources which were required to ensure safety in hospitals and provide treatment to patients with other diseases. This has impacted the overall healthcare market negatively. Additionally, decline in number of patients visit to dermatologist decreased, which is expected to affect the global dermatoscope market over the forecast period. For instance, according to an article published in National Library of Medicine, in January 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic there was reduction of 75% patient visit into the dermatologic clinic.

Definition: Dermatologists use Dermatoscope in dermatoscopy, which includes observing skin lesions to detect skin diseases such as skin cancer (melanoma). Dermatoscope is a device that allows dermatologists to visualize the surface of skin structures that cannot be seen with the naked eye. It also helps examine the nails, scalp, and hair. The dermatoscope device contains a non-polarized light source, a magnifier, and a transparent plate that allows proper skin visualization in detail.
Skin diseases are conditions that affect skin. These diseases may cause rashes, inflammation, itchiness or other skin changes. Some skin conditions may be genetic, while lifestyle factors may cause others. Skin disease treatment may include medications, creams or ointments, or lifestyle changes. A dermatoscope is used in dermatoscopy, also known as dermoscopy or chemiluminescence microscopy, which is a non-invasive, in vivo technique for examining skin lesions. The dermatoscope has a magnifying lens and a light source for better viewing of subsurface skin features. Dermatoscopes come in a variety of forms, including digital and smartphone dermatoscopes, analogue and digital dermatoscopes, polarized and non-polarized dermatoscopes, and more. Analog dermoscopy is also known as epiluminescence microscopy (ELM). Images or videos are converted to digital formats using a digital epiluminescence dermatoscope.
Increase in the government and non-government organizations initiatives to improve access to affordable skin related treatment option. Rise in the awareness regarding the importance of skin health among the people worldwide is expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, increase in the prevalence of skin related diseases such as rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema across the world is expected to drive the market growth for the forecast period. For instance, according to an article published in Wiley Online Library, an U.S.-based scientific and medical journal, in March 2022, skin disease is the fourth leading cause of disability in across the globe, and they affect between 30% and 70% of people worldwide.
