Why are LED-based Phototherapy Devices Gaining Immense Popularity?

LED-based phototherapy devices hold a significant market share. Sales of LED-based phototherapy devices are expected to increase by 2.1X over the forecast period.

LEDs are used as a light source in LED-based phototherapy devices to precisely focus the appropriate wavelength light on the affected area. Furthermore, because of the high amount of radiation, the treatment period associated with LED devices is less than that of conventional devices.

The intensity of LEDs does not decrease over time, and they can be used for at least 3,000 hours. Furthermore, because their spectrum is concentrated in the blue region of visible light, they are less fragile and do not emit high heat.

Rising incidence of newborn jaundice and the expanding acceptance of LED-based phototherapy equipment for target disease management are driving the demand for LED-based phototherapy devices.

Why is Demand for Phototherapy Devices for Skin Disease Treatments High?

Based on application, skin disease treatment is expected to be the largest contributor to the market.

The frequency of skin diseases has increased worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The rising prevalence of psoriasis, as well as the expanding need for psoriasis treatment, and latest trends in phototherapy devices are driving the demand for phototherapy to treat skin issues.

Due to increase in skin-related diseases and high recurrence, demand for phototherapy devices to treat skin issues is on the rise, particularly psoriasis, which ranks first, followed by eczema and cancer.

COVID-19 Impact on Industry

COVID-19 has spread widely over the world, with a large number of cases documented in various countries. COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the lifestyle of people and the global economy.

Because COVID-19 influenced phototherapy equipment manufacturing companies, the need for phototherapy for the treatment of numerous diseases has decreased. Manufacturing has been halted and logistical activities have been halted due to the spread of COVID-19.

Top phototherapy device distributors are resorting to multiple options to deal with the current COVID-19 pandemic scenario. Technology improvements combined with advanced healthcare infrastructure are likely to boost demand for phototherapy devices.
