Report Overview

The global microdermabrasion devices market size was valued at USD 474.2 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% over the forecast period. Rising cases of skin conditions and increased obsession with flawless skin are the key market growth drivers. The market witnessed a significant setback due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the majority of cosmetic products were not medical necessities, lockdown imposed in several countries led to the closure of beauty salons & med spas, dermatology clinics, and retail stores. However, the incidence of several skin conditions like contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, etc. has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.

U.S. microdermabrasion devices market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

As microdermabrasion has proven to help treat acne and acne scarring, the demand for the procedure will likely increase. Many esthetic practitioners predict that there can be a significant increase in patient footfall post-pandemic. Various factors, such as a considerable increase in video calls and the benefit of discreet recovery at home, are boosting the market growth post-pandemic. Moreover, the growing geriatric population is also estimated to fuel the industry growth over the forecast period due to increasing demand for anti-aging treatment and procedures like wrinkles, age spots, etc. This ultimately increases the demand for microdermabrasion devices, thereby driving the market. Furthermore, advanced microdermabrasion devices are expected to gain more popularity among individuals, thus positively impacting the market growth.

The crystal microdermabrasion device segment in the U.S. is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period. Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive esthetic treatment that uses a microcrystal that gently removes the outer layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion procedure triggers a wound response in the skin, which allows the skin to repair itself, making it smoother and more elastic, giving a healthier appearance. The rise in skin-related conditions increased consumer disposable income, and global acceptance of non-invasive procedures for skin beautification are a few other drivers of the market. The increasing demand for skin procedures is estimated to result in dermatologists offering higher-margin procedures.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that in 2020 around 522,693 microdermabrasion procedures were carried out in the U.S. Social media and globalization have triggered a need to have beautiful and flawless skin, especially amongst women, thus fueling the market growth. For instance, an article published by Medical News Today mentions that women with low self-esteem and high media exposure are more prone to undergo cosmetic surgery. The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted several industries including the market. Initially, the lockdown and supply chain disruptions had negatively affected the dermatology devices market. Short-term negative growth was observed in the market due to almost the entire suspension of non-COVID-19-related surgeries, limited operations of manufacturing, and disruption in the supply chain. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion procedures decreased by 40% in 2020 as compared to 2019. This indicated that the demand for the procedure decreased in 2020, negatively affecting the overall market.

Type Insights

On the basis of types, the global market is segmented into diamond and crystal microdermabrasion devices. The crystal microdermabrasion segment accounted for the highest share of around 54.0% of the global revenue in 2021. The segment is projected to expand further at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Furthermore, these devices work gently and offer complete safety to patients during treatment, thereby fueling the segment growth. Aluminum oxide (corundum) crystals are typically used because they are nearly as hard as diamonds. The diamond segment also held a significant share.

The segment growth can be credited to the ability of diamond microdermabrasion devices to provide a smooth appearance as compared to crystal microdermabrasion devices. Procedures with diamond microdermabrasion devices are ideal for a range of skin conditions, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone, old stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. Moreover, these systems are non-invasive, highly effective, and help increase blood flow and the production of collagen in the skin. Hence, the diamond microdermabrasion segment is anticipated to witness a significant over the forecast period.

Application Insights

On the basis of applications, the global market has been further divided into acne & scars, photo damage, anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and others. The anti-aging application segment held the highest market share of more than 34.0% in 2021 and is expected to grow further at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the increasing geriatric population. For instance, according to Population Reference Bureau, by 2060, the number of individuals aged above 65 years is estimated to reach nearly 98 million, which is approximately double the number in 2016.

According to the 2020 Real Self Survey, 62% of Americans use anti-aging products as part of their daily skincare routine. This indicates that the population in the U.S. is more focused on looking young and therefore the region has a high demand for anti-aging treatments. The number of non-invasive treatments has increased globally due to the fact that the focus on aesthetic appearance has risen in the last decade, which has led people to opt for such procedures diligently.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end uses, the market is categorized into clinics & beauty centers and home use. The clinics & beauty centers segment held the largest revenue share of more than 87% in 2021 and will expand further at a steady CAGRduring the forecast period. This growth can be credited to factors, such as relatively high procedure quality and efficiency offered at clinics or beauty centers. Microdermabrasion is an abrasive procedure and may only be performed by a physician or by a registered nurse, physician assistant, licensed esthetician, or cosmetologist under a physician’s supervision.

Global microdermabrasion devices market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The procedure carried out in-office under the supervision of an aesthetic professional is more effective and gives more visible results and therefore has a high market growth. The home-use segment is also gaining popularity as home-use products are user-friendly and offer much more comfort to patients. Furthermore, a continuous increase in demand for home-based medical treatments for the geriatric population is also propelling the demand. However, home-based microdermabrasion devices are not as effective as in-office treatments and therefore have less market share.

Regional Insights

On the basis of geographies, the global market has been further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounted for the largest share of 43.0% of the global revenue in 2021 due to the increasing number of cosmetic procedures and high demand for minimally invasive techniques. The growth in rates of cosmetic procedures from the year 2000 to 2018 was compared by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and it was observed that North America had the highest procedure volume of non-surgical aesthetic treatments globally.

Thus, North America is expected to be a key revenue generator for the global market in the coming years. On the other hand, the regional market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The regional market is mainly driven by countries, such as China, India, and Thailand. The growing focus on physical appearance in these developing countries is expected to play a key role in boosting the demand for non-invasive aesthetic treatments. India is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.
