Light Therapy Market Overview:

In addition, the global Light Therapy Market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 5.10%, with a value of USD 1,112.16 million during the estimated the forecasting year of 2022-2030.

Light therapy, often known as phototherapy, is a form of medical care that uses artificial lighting. It is primarily used to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder, a depression condition with seasonal variations. This treatment makes up for the patient's lack of exposure to sunshine, which contributed to their disease. The light source is employed to simulate natural sunshine to aid in the therapy. Other health issues treated with light include different forms of depression and sleep disturbances. The amount of light used in treatment is quantified using lux gauges, a unit of measurement.

The rise in the prevalence of skin conditions that require light therapy for treatment, such as wrinkles, psoriasis, acne vulgaris, and other dermatological conditions, will contribute to the market's considerable growth throughout the projected period. The increased use of narrow and broad band UV phototherapy to treat skin-related disorders will accelerate industry growth in the short term. The market expansion is predicted to be driven by the rising number of advantages this therapy offers, such as cellular regeneration and enhanced blood circulation.

Additionally, a rise in patient desire for more minor invasive procedures and a surge in light therapy technology improvements will contribute to the market's faster expansion in the years to come. The market is also anticipated to grow shortly due to favourable reimbursement conditions in developing nations and a sharp increase in the usage of blue light to treat skin conditions. However, the likelihood of common adverse effects from direct contact with the light source might impede market expansion in the ensuing years.
