Adoption of light therapy devices is projected to increase at very high rate over the forecast period. The trend is expected to boost the overall demand for light therapy products such as light boxes, dawn simulators, and handheld devices for skin treatment during the forecast period. The global light therapy industry is expected to witness significant growth however; shortage of funding for light therapy research and post treatment side effects is expected to impede the growth to a certain extent.
The U.S. was the largest contributor to the North America light therapy market, and is projected to witness further traction in the near future, owing to growing prevalence of psoriasis and other dermatological diseases. According to American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), psoriasis is a common skin disorder that affected around 7.5 million people in 2013 in the U.S. Asia Pacific light therapy market is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period due to steady economic development in the region and as per International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) over 43 million people suffered from psoriasis in Asia Pacific region in 2014. China is expected to hold majority regional share due to high geriatric population and rise in prevalence of dermatological diseases.
