The Global Dermatological Devices Market was valued at US$ 6,565.5 million in 2015 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2016–2024), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. Rise in number of patients suffering from non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers is expected to be one of the major factor to drive the dermatological devices market in the near future. According to WHO, each year around 2 to 3 million non-melanoma and around 132,000 melanoma skin cancers are reported worldwide.
Introduction of histopathology in the field of dermatology has improved the diagnostic process in considerable manner. Skin is an organ that can be easily accessed by the specialist for visual inspection and sample collection for biopsy. There has been a significant demand for in-vivo diagnostic technology, which can be combined along with minimally invasive therapies. Confocal microscopy is gaining traction in the medical diagnostic field, which proves the establishment of dermoscopy. A multidisciplinary approach advancements in physics, chemistry, and molecular biology for diagnosis and treatment of dermatology patients is the need of the hour, which would further complement the techniques currently employed such as pulsed light and photodynamic therapy (PDT). There are various techniques included in the field of dermatology such as multiphoton laser scanning microscopy, which is used to obtain the images from cellular and intracellular level. Raman spectroscopy is another technique that is used to identify the type of lesions on the skin by the help of molecular composition. Multispectral color imaging for dermatological diagnosis of inflammatory and immunologic diseases is a novel application in diagnostic field and this technology has been applied to diagnosis of melanomas.

Most of the skin diseases are not well known to the society in terms of their frequency, impact, etiology, and prevention. More recently, these are frequent cause of disability and discomfort globally. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paper published in 2004, one in three people in the U.S. suffers from skin condition that leads to at least a one-time visit to a dermatologist. However, there are few variations as such disorders are does not depend on the person’s gender, age, or race. Furthermore, the information from previous surveys suggests reoccurrence and results of such disorders have been modified over the course of time due to environmental factors and other demographic factors. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, such complications may be used as a reason for exclusion from employment. Around US$ 300 million per year is the estimated cost associated with dermatological conditions. In the U.S., it has been estimated that occupational skin diseases (OSDs) are the second most frequently occurring dermatological disease. Furthermore, in the past few years, OSDs has contributed to around 15 to 20% of all occupational diseases. Also, dermatitis accounted to around 90 to 95% of all OSDs with approximately 80% on forearm. Contact with irritants and allergens in occupational and non-occupational settings is the main cause for hand dermatitis. Increasing incidence of these conditions creates a highly conduce environment for growth of the global dermatology devices market.
