The global microdermabrasion devices market size was valued at USD 508.4 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8% over the forecast period. Rising cases of skin conditions and an increased obsession with flawless skin, especially in women, are the key market growth drivers. The market witnessed a significant setback due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the majority of cosmetic applications were not medical necessities, lockdowns imposed in numerous countries led to the closure of dermatology clinics, beauty salons & med spas, and retail stores. However, the incidence of several skin conditions like contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, etc. increased during the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 post-pandemic aesthetic market. Moreover, the growing geriatric population is estimated to fuel the industry growth over the forecast period due to increasing demand for anti-aging treatments 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 microdermabrasion devices market growth.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, allowing it to be thicker, smoother, and more elastic, giving a healthier appearance. The market has grown as a result of several variables including a growing number of cases of skin-related conditions and increasing demand for minimally invasive treatments.
For instance, as per the study published by the journal JMIR Dermatology in August 2021, 1.79% of the world’s illness burden is attributable to skin problems.The rise in skin-related conditions, increased disposable income of consumers, and global acceptance of non-invasive treatments for skin beautification are a few other drivers of the market. The rise in demand for skin treatments is estimated to result in dermatologists providing 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. The growth of the market was impacted by the dermatology sector's constant growth and an upsurge in the number of operations.
The market has been growing due to the non-invasive characteristics of the procedure as well as advances in technology that ensure comfort for patients before, during, and during therapy.Social media and globalization have triggered a need to have beautiful and flawless skin, especially among women, thus fueling market growth. For instance, an article published by Medical News Today mentions that individuals with low self-esteem, few religious beliefs, and high media exposure are more prone to undergo cosmetic surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion procedures decreased in 2020 by 40% as compared to 2019. Thisnegatively affected the overall market.
Based on types, the global market is segmented into diamond and crystal microdermabrasion devices. Crystal microdermabrasion held the highest share of 53.9% in 2022 due to its ability to provide a smooth appearance as compared to crystal microdermabrasion devices. Furthermore, these devices work gently and offer complete safety to the patients during treatment, which fuels the segment growth. Aluminum oxide crystals are normally used because they are almost as hard as diamonds.
The segment is also projected to witness considerable growth during the forecast period.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 application ion of collagen in the skin. Hence, the diamond microdermabrasion segment is anticipated to witness a significant over the forecast period.
On the basis of applications, the global market has been further divided into acne & scars, anti-aging, photo damage, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and others. The anti-aging application segment held the highest market share of more than 34.6% in 2022 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.
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 87.5% in 2022 and will expand further at a steady CAGR during 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, licensed esthetician, physician assistant, or cosmetologist under a physician’s supervision.
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.
North America held the highest share of 43.0% in 2022 due to the large number o target population, rising demandfor cosmetic proceduresby both adults & the geriatric population, and high demand for minimally invasive techniques. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the growth in rates of cosmetic procedures from the year 2000 to 2021 was compared andit 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 market in the coming years.Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. The region covers countries, such as China, India, and Thailand. Growing focus on physical appearance in these developing countries is anticipated to play a major role in the demand for non-invasive aesthetic treatments. India is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.
The key companies are concentrating on strategic initiatives, such as mergers and acquisitions, new application development, and geographical expansions. For instance, in 2022, the company Galderma acquired ALASTIN Skincare to enhance its dermatology portfolio and skincare product manufacturing.Some of the key players in the global dermatology devices market include:
