Market Report Description

The Global Laser Hair Removal Market size is expected to reach $1.2 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 35.4% CAGR during the forecast period. In our daily life, human hair plays a major role. Dermatologists hold an important position in addressing issues related to sparse & excessive hair growth. The cause of this extra hair growth may either be the genetics of a person or organic in nature. A person who opts for the removal of these hairs generally has excessive growth in unwanted locations or has problems emerging from abnormal hair growth patterns on normal skin. People who have darker skin types are more prone to complexities and therefore a deep understanding of the pathophysiology of excessive hair growth & the modalities of their treatment should be examined.

For a long time, there are conventional hair removal procedures such as shaving, epilation, waxing, and tweezing. In the early 20th century, Radiograph machines were adopted for the removal of facial hair, although with corresponding complexities. For years, Electrolysis was utilized for a quite long time and has shown effective results based on the skill of the treatment provider. The emergence of medical lasers resulted in a high-level of research in controlling skin problems including hair removal.

The procedure of hair removal through exposure to pulses of laser light that eradicate the hair follicle is termed laser hair removal. It is considered as a type of laser device to destroy a person's body hair in beauty spas and hospitals around the world. The growth of the market is anticipated to be fueled by the rising demand for non-invasive hair removal methods. Moreover, the market growth is also boosted by technological developments such as the advent of ultra-technology.

Laser Type Outlook

Based on Laser Type, the market is segmented into Diode Laser, Nd:YAG Laser and Alexandrite Laser. The diode segment acquired the prominent revenue share of the laser hair removal market in 2019. The major revenue is credited to the high accuracy provided by these products. Diode lasers are capable of targeting a specific body part and efficiently damage the hair without causing harm to the nearby skin of the area. Moreover, the product demand is expected to increase owing to the feasible time needed for removing hair as per the area of the body and volume of hair.

End Use Outlook

Based on End Use, the market is segmented into Beauty Clinics, Dermatology Clinics and Home Use. The beauty clinics segment has generated the maximum market revenue in 2019 and is expected to witness a promising growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the rapid adoption & broad utilization of technologically advanced products in beauty clinics. Additionally, the growth of the segment is fuelled by the rising demand for non-invasive hair removal techniques. Laser treatments are considered less harmful & painful as compared to conventional methods like waxing and hair plucking.
