Market Snapshot


Global Phototherapy Market is expected to register a 4.61% CAGR during the forecast period.


Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) has shown that skin diseases continue to be the 4th leading cause of non-fatal disease burden globally. Skin diseases increase with age and are more frequent in men than in women. Phototherapy is most widely used to treat photo-responsive skin diseases such as psoriasis, vitiligo, and cutaneous t-cell lymphoma.


Global Phototherapy Market is growing rapidly due to the increasing prevalence of severe skin diseases and the rising number of preterm and low-weight births. In addition, the rising adoption of LED-based phototherapy equipment is also expected to drive the growth of the market. However, the differential awareness and availability between countries and issues in venture capital, startups, and collaborations are expected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Moreover, psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition. The economic burden of psoriasis is around USD 35 billion in the US per year, and treatment costs are rising than general inflation. Light-emitting diode (LED) phototherapy represents a cost-effective, safe, efficacious, and portable psoriasis treatment. Moreover, it has advantages, including low power consumption, low heat production, and a much longer life span of the light-emitting unit as compared to other light sources. Therefore, there has been rising adoption of LED-based phototherapy equipment from the last few years.

Global Phototherapy Market Share, By Region, 2019 (%)
Phototherapy Market


Americas accounted for the largest market share in 2019 and is expected to be the largest phototherapy market during the forecast period. The regional market growth is primarily driven by the high demand for skin treatments in the US and Canada. Moreover, due to the increasing adoption of home phototherapy. Although the treatment burden for phototherapy in the outpatient department is considerable, prescription of home phototherapy has not been widely initiated. Home phototherapy seems more patient-friendly in terms of avoiding the thrice weekly hospital visits as patients have to travel to the hospital two to three times a week, mostly during business hours, which is costly and difficult to fit into daily life. In psoriasis treatment, home phototherapy is as effective and safe as phototherapy in an outpatient department. Patients were more satisfied with home phototherapy. This is because home phototherapy is often the most cost-effective treatment option for patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis, consistently providing excellent results without the dangerous and common side effects associated with biologics. Hence, the phototherapy market in the Americas is expected to register a 4.63% CAGR during the forecast period.
