Global aging population and continued rise in age-related eye disorders are some of
the major drivers of the global medical laser systems market. Other factors driving the
growth of the global market include increasing accessibility of advanced laser treatments
to patients around the world and growing importance of aesthetics. Emerging economies such
as the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are witnessing a rise
in the disposable income of patients leading to better affordability for costly laser
treatments. This coupled with unmet medical needs in emerging economies such as China and
India will serve the market as future growth opportunities.

In 2011, diode lasers market held the largest share and is expected to maintain its
position throughout the forecast period. This position is majorly attributed to their use
in an array of medical applications such as photodynamic therapy and numerous aesthetic
treatments. Solid state laser segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during 2012
to 2018 as this laser has several variants, each of which finds specific application in

In the medical laser systems market by applications, the dermatology segment held
majority of global market share in 2011, followed closely by the ophthalmology application
segment. The market share in both the segments is expected to decrease marginally during
the forecast period because of the rise in laser applications in other segments such as
cardiovascular, attributed to the increase in prevalence of heart diseases and the
development of cost effective treatment techniques.

The North America medical laser systems market held majority of the market share in
2011 at over 35%, owing to the rise in prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and
obesity. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing market due to the presence of high
growth opportunities in terms of unmet medical needs in emerging economies such as India
and China.

Lumenis Ltd. dominated the medical laser systems market followed by PhotoMedex, Inc.
and Spectranetics Corporation in 2011. Other major players in the market include BioLase,
