Teledermatology Market Overview

The teledermatology market size is expected to reach USD 65.64 billion by 2030 at 20.8% CAGR during the forecast period 2022 – 2030.

Teledermatology is a subspecialty field of dermatology and one of the most imperative applications of e-health and telemedicine. In this field, telecommunication technologies are used to transfer medical information over varying distances through audio, visual, and data communication. It provides several benefits for managing skin conditions, such as consultation, diagnosis, treatment, and even education.   The factors driving the market rising adoption of teledermatology, integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and increasing incidence of skin conditions. In addition, technological advancements projected to create lucrative growth opportunities. However, unavailability of the proper network in underdeveloped or developing countries and lack of awareness about teledermatology among physicians and patients are restraining the growth of the market.

COVID-19 Analysis

COVID-19 has impacted positively on the teledermatology market, and the market demonstrated robust growth during the COVID-19 period. Factors played an imperative role in increasing the acceptance of teledermatology during the pandemic such as maintaining social distance and lockdowns. As per the study, the market has been accelerating since 2020 due to the plummet in inpatient visits and direct consultations. For instance, in 2020, the American Association of Dermatology surveyed and found that 43% of weekly patient visits had been reduced during the lockdown period.

Besides, in July 2020, the German Society of Dermatology began a survey based in India and the US, which revealed that approximately 80% of the people surveyed were in support of teledermatology. This demonstrated the strong demand by consumers for teledermatology. Moreover, the ratio of dermatologists related to telehealth consultations in the US has tripled during the lockdown period. Hence, the aforementioned drivers fueled the growth of the market during the pandemic.

Teledermatology Market Segment Overview

By Type

  • Product

The product segment has been segmented into software and hardware. Software demands advanced systems to run properly, which increases patient flow and care. Some software is integrated with cloud-based technology to ensure a wider and greater reach. Furthermore, drivers such as the rapid adoption of hospital automation solutions and real-time health systems fuel segment growth. Hardware, such as telemedicine carts, consoles, desktops, webcams, microphones, laptops, and others, is a key component of teledermatology. Hence, the rise in demand for efficient hardware due to the high demand for teledermatology gives rise to the growth of the segment.

  • Service

The service segment has been segmented into tele-consulting, telemonitoring, tele-education, and others. Tele-consulting in dermatology involves the diagnosis of skin diseases at a distance. In order to complete the dermatology process, tele-consulting builds relationships with three stakeholders, including providers, payers, and fulfilment centers. Telemonitoring is the self-monitoring of skin between appointments via virtual consultation, which allows patients to identify skin diseases. Skin diseases such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and others can be monitored through manual full-body photography, mole mapping, multi-dimensional face tracking, and wide-area skin photography. Tele-education includes communication, physical examination, technology literacy, and professionalism, which are required for proper skin monitoring. Others, including teledermatopathology & telecytology and teledermoscopy, due to feasibility and effectiveness are also fueling service segment growth.

By Modality

  • Store & Forward

Store & Forward is used in teledermatology for the transmission of electronic medical data such as digital images, documents, and pre-recorded videos. This platform is secure to collect and store the physiological data of the patient and then send it via email or message based on the system technology. It also plays a key role in the diagnosis of skin diseases enabling providers to access patient data conveniently. Further, the rising incidences of skin diseases demand accurate diagnosis aids in the segment's growth.

  • Real Time

Real-time teledermatology, also known as interactive teledermatology or live teledermatology, makes it easy to do a doctor-patient visit anytime and anywhere. It includes any two-way communications (video conferencing and phone consultations) that help providers and patients communicate in real-time. It allows for the verification of medical history and immediate advice.

By End User

Teledermatology has numerous benefits for payers, including improved quality scores, increased utilization, and lower costs, as well as increased member satisfaction and loyalty.

  • Providers

Teledermatology also benefits health care providers such as practitioners, doctors, and hospital personnel. It enables health care providers to improve continuity of care, provide video or phone appointments, extend access to care beyond normal business hours, reduce patient and provider travel burden, and support patients managing chronic skin conditions.

  • Patients

Teledermatology allows patients to communicate with healthcare providers via phone or video. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it became more popular and practical across the globe. Changes in insurance reimbursement rules and technological advancements have assisted in the acceptance of teledermatology across the globe.
