Global Laser Cancer Therapy Market: Market Outlook
Many ablative techniques are being proposed as substitutes to traditional resection surgery. These include microwave ablation, radio-frequency ablation, laser ablation (LA), cryosurgery and high intensity focused ultrasound treatments. All these techniques hold the potential to kill cancer while sparing normal tissue. Ablative therapy can also be delivered in a minimally invasive manner, permitting less pain and shorter recovery time. Among the mentioned techniques, laser ablative shows the attractive possibility of being guided through a ?exible and small ?ber to targets in deep-lying organs
Laser therapy uses high-intensity light to treat cancer and other illnesses. In order to destroy or shrink tumors or precancerous growth laser can be used. Additionally, in some cases lasers may also be helpful in eliminating some symptoms of cancer, for example obstruction or bleeding. For example, in order to terminate or shrink a tumor that maybe hindering a patient’s esophagus or trachea, lasers can be used. Moreover, lasers also can be used to eradicate colon polyps or tumors that are blocking the colon or stomach.
Although laser therapy can be used alone, but most often it is combined with other treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. Furthermore, lasers can cover nerve endings to ease pain after surgical procedure and seal lymph vessels to decrease inflammation and limit the spread of tumor cells.

Cancer: The Unstoppable Ever Rising Incidence and Prevalence of the Disease
Various types of cancers are escalating at an alarming rate. The rising prevalence and incidence of cancer demands innovative treatment options leading to rise in demand for laser cancer therapy. According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, an estimated 18 million cancer cases were observed in 2018, of these 8.5 million 9.5 million cases were in men and women, respectively. The most common cancers found worldwide were breast and lung cancers contributing approximately 12.3% each of the total number of new cases diagnosed in 2018. Thus, the rising incidence and prevalence of cancer is expected to propel the growth of laser cancer therapy treatment.
How will the Rise in Treatment Adoption and Diagnosis of Cancer Impact the Global Laser Cancer Therapy Market?
There is a significant rise in the treatment adoption rate and diagnosis of cancer over the last decade. The rise in treatment adoption rate and diagnosis can be attributed towards the life threatening nature that cancer possesses. In addition, the introduction of novel treatment options that promises better recovery and low relapse probability are also influencing the patients to undergo treatment. A majority of population diagnosed with cancer undergoes treatment in order to survive rather than just ignoring it. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2019, 44% of the females that were diagnosed with breast cancer managed to survive post treatment in the U.S.
Thus, rise in treatment adoption and diagnosis of cancer is expected to drive the growth the of laser cancer therapy market.
What are the Key Challenges that may Restrain Growth of the Global Laser Cancer Therapy Market?
One major factor that may restrain growth of the laser cancer therapy market is lack of trained professionals. Moreover, laser therapy is quiet expensive and the effects of the therapy may not last for a long period of time. These factors may also restrict the growth of laser therapy market.
