What are Dermatology Diagnostic Devices?
Dermatology diagnostic devices comprise imaging, microscopes, immunoassays, and molecular diagnostics devices. They are widely available in different sizes, shapes, and additional features as per the disease type. They involve various technologies, such as X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to observe and diagnose skin ailments. They offer enhanced accuracy and aid in improving treatment efficacy while reducing the chances of reoccurrences. They are used to perform a visual examination and microscopic observation of the skin, which assists in identifying the disease and specifying a treatment plan. They are also utilized to treat acne, wounds, skin tumors, scabies, hair loss, fungal infection, pigmentation, skin cancer, skin lesions, scalp problems, and melanoma among individuals. As a result, dermatology diagnostics devices are employed in hospitals, diagnostic labs, and specialty skin care centers across the globe.
The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has caused a problem for the dermatology diagnostic devices industry and imposed unprecedented challenges on numerous countries. Dermatology diagnostic devices are essential products, and their production facilities were continued during the lockdown period. The manufacturing of dermatology diagnostic devices has been affected in the initial period of the pandemic due to supply chain disruptions from raw materials, labor shortages, and low stocks. In addition, due to the lockdown and imposition of social distancing norms, various manufacturers have downscaled capacity or paused their production. Import of raw materials for dermatology diagnostic devices has reduced due to the global pandemic crisis. Besides this, the demand for dermatology diagnostics devices has been hampered during the pandemic due to a sharp reduction in non-emergency visits to hospitals and clinics. The rising preference for online consultations has been observed among individuals around the world. Moreover, non-essential surgeries have been postponed, impacting the demand for dermatology diagnostics devices. Furthermore, various strategic plans and projects of the key players have been postponed or canceled due to the widespread coronavirus across the globe.
At present, the rising demand for dermatology diagnostic devices due to the increasing prevalence of skin disorders, such as hair fall, psoriasis, and eczema, among the masses represents one of the key factors supporting the growth of the market. Besides this, the growing popularity of dermatology procedures in the cosmetic industry to treat skin pigmentations, allergic reactions, and fungal and bacterial infections among individuals is offering a positive market outlook. Additionally, there is a rise in the need for smaller and easy-to-use devices in hospitals and clinics around the world. This, coupled with the increasing utilization of dermatology diagnostic devices to detect early signs of diseases among individuals, is propelling the growth of the market. Apart from this, the rising demand for non-invasive surgical methods among individuals worldwide is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors. Moreover, the increasing number of specialty clinics and hospitals across the globe is positively influencing the market. In addition, the rising utilization of mobile-based technologies for dermatology diagnosis that can track and screen skin conditions is contributing to the growth of the market. Furthermore, key players are introducing devices that perform imaging techniques, such as dermatoscopy and optical coherence tomography, which is strengthening the market growth.
