The global skincare devices market size was valued at USD 12.5 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% from 2022 to 2030. The increasing prevalence of skin cancer and other skin diseases is contributing largely to the high demand for skincare devices.

The rise in disposable income is also considered as one of the important factors driving the market.

U.S. skincare devices market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The prevalence of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers is rising significantly. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, around 10,130 people die due to melanoma every year in the U.S. Furthermore, American Cancer Society 2018 statistics stated that in the U.S., around 91,270 new melanoma cases are expected to be diagnosed in that year. Meanwhile, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) estimated that 1 in 3 Americans visit dermatologists, and 1 in every 4 are affected with skin disease every year. Hence, there is a growing need for rapid diagnosis of skin disorders.

The COVID-19 pandemic had significantly affected the market for skincare devices. Initially, the lockdown and supply chain disruption had negatively affected the market. Short-term negative growth was observed in the market due to almost entirely suspension of non-COVID-19 related surgeries, limited operations of manufacturing, and disruption in the supply chain. However, the market for dermatological devices has seen a V shape recovery. With the successful rollout of vaccines in all regions, the volume of dermatological devices is beginning to recover to its pre-pandemic levels. In 2021, the market has witnessed high demand due to the backlog of 2020 and increased interest from people related to dermatological procedures.

The market has witnessed high volatility during the past few months and is expected to return to its normal growth trend by 2023. The market for skincare devices is developing rapidly due to growing esthetic awareness. In the current scenario, people of all age groups are increasingly concerned about enhancing their esthetic appeal. Complete skin rejuvenation improves the esthetic appeal of a person. There has been a latent shift from using conventional products to technologically advanced equipment, which aids in better diagnosis and treatment of various skin diseases as well as improve one’s esthetic appeal. The introduction of technologically advanced noninvasive laser therapies has led to the high demand for skincare devices.

Product Insights

The treatment devices segment held the largest revenue share of about 79.0% in 2021 and is also expected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period. This is mainly due to the availability of wide applications of dermatology treatment. In addition, the launch of novel technologies in the laser device category is also attributed to the high segment growth. The low market share for diagnostic devices can be attributable to less awareness level pertaining to the various novel instruments. However, the rising prevalence of skin cancer is anticipated to drive this segment in the future.

Among the treatment devices, the laser segment held the largest revenue share in 2021 and is also expected to show the highest growth over the forecast period owing to its wide adoption. On the other hand, the dermatoscopes segment dominated the diagnostic devices segment in 2021 due to the availability of advanced technologies. A skin cancer diagnosis is anticipated to show significant growth over the forecast period due to the rise in prevalence of the disease and increasing emphasis on early detection. Laser hair removal devices generated the maximum revenue share in 2021 owing to the huge benefits associated with these devices.

With the need for specialized dermatology treatments, patients tend to visit specialty dermatology clinics for rapid and effective service, which has led to the high growth of the clinic segment. Moreover, the global rise in the prevalence of skin cancer and melanoma coupled with an increasing number of clinics offering dermatology services has led to an increase in the number of patients visiting dermatology clinics for treatment and care.

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