Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market: About the Report
With a wide range and high prevalence of skin ailments across regions, demand for dermatology diagnostic devices is continuously rising. Fact.MR’s report elaborates on why dermatoscopes top the list as far as demand is concerned, and how medical tourism is aiding market growth. It also talks about how, in this moderately consolidated market place, non-invasive dermatological screening technologies are gaining prominence. The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a short-term negative impact on the growth of the dermatology diagnostic devices market. Detailed region-wise analysis is enclosed in the report, which points to North America and East Asia leading the global market.
Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market Overview
Dermatology is a branch of medical science dealing with the skin, nails, hair, and sweat glands. With urbanized lifestyles becoming mainstream in most parts of the world, concerns over polluted environments and its effects on the skin are key drivers for the dermatology diagnostic devices market.
Non-melanoma cancer is the fifth-most common type of cancer, and melanoma of skin cancer is the 21st-most common type of cancer in the world, as per WHO. Also, widespread prevalence of other skin ailments such as acne and eczema are driving market growth.
Consumer interest towards personal care products for both, male and female demographics, is on the rise. Also, the number of non-invasive dermatology procedures has gone up substantially in recent years. This factor will provide growth opportunities in the near future. While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has largely been negative, skin inflammation symptoms in patients will aid manufacturers in the dermatology diagnostic devices in the months ahead.
Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market Analysis by Product
Dermatology diagnostic devices can be classified on the basis of product into imaging techniques, dermatoscopes, microscopes, and others. Dermatoscopes are projected to display relatively faster growth through the assessment period. Dermoscopy processes improve sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of skin cancer diagnosis, which will drive growth in the long term.
In addition, dermatoscopes are gaining ground with the incorporation of new technologies in product offerings, including artificial intelligence. Further, these devices are finding roles in primary care medical procedures. However, low awareness about novel diagnostic devices will hinder adoption. High number of skin cancer cases in populous major regional markets will support demand for the foreseeable future.
Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market Analysis by End User
The dermatology diagnostic devices market has been segmented on the basis of end user into hospitals, specialty dermatological clinics, and private clinics. Hospitals are estimated to display a relatively larger market share. This can be attributed to access to higher capital and easier access to advanced technologies in hospital facilities. Hospitals are also capable of catering to a wide range of diagnostic and treatment options for a number of skin diseases. On the other hand, specialty clinics are reflecting faster growth, with growing number of small-scale players in the dermatology sector, and access to faster and efficient services. While skin cancer diagnostics are mostly carried out in hospital settings, diagnostics for other ailments such as eczema and acne will drive growth of the clinics segment.
Regional Outlook of Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market
North America is a leading regional market as far as dermatology diagnostic devices market share is concerned. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, around 9,500 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Such widespread prevalence of skin issues and high number of cosmetic dermatology procedures are major factors supporting market growth.
East Asia is also a key market, which is witnessing higher interest in terms of medical tourism, including dermatology procedures. Large number of baby boomers and increasing interest in recent times in men’s personal care and beauty treatments are expected to contribute to growth for the foreseeable future.

The Analyst’s Viewpoint
“Improvements in reimbursement offerings, especially in emerging economies, for varying skin ailments such as skin cancer, eczema, warts, and measles will bolster demand for skincare diagnostics. In addition, growing investments in R&D programs will provide impetus to demand in the years ahead.”
COVID-19 Impact on Dermatology Diagnostic Devices Market
COVID-19 infections have been associated with a wide range of inflammatory skin-based symptoms. Key morphological patterns observed include livedoid, maculopapular, vesicular, urticarial, and pseudo chilblain indications. This is likely to create opportunities for manufacturers in the dermatology diagnostic devices market in the short term.
Dermatology diagnostics is also finding key roles in pediatric inflammatory conditions, for younger asymptomatic patients.
