The market overview section of the report includes qualitative analysis of the overall skincare devices market, including the factors determining the market dynamics such as drivers, restraints and opportunities, along with Porter’s Five Forces Analysis.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/18/2016 -- Popularity of cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, skin tightening, body contouring, and skin rejuvenation that enhance the overall appearance of the client and make them look more youthful and fit is on the rise. Rise in the geriatric population in the U.S. and other parts of the world, particularly in Japan, is expected to drive the skincare devices market. For instance, people aged 65 and above are likely to constitute 20% of the population of the U.S. by 2029 as against 14% in 2012. At the same time, the overall population of senior citizens is expected to surpass 1.5 billion in the next few decades. Moreover, most of the upper- and middle-class women and men are the primary end-users of skincare services as they carry a trending opinion that 60 years is not an age for oneself to be called 'old' and get retired. Additionally, countries in the emerging markets are offering world class, yet cost-effective medical tourism solutions leading to increase in the number of procedures and skin treatments availed. However, competitive pricing and equipment costs and growth in popularity of substitutes such as at-home devices, cosmeceuticals, and OTC skincare products is expected to impede market growth.

The cellulite reduction application segment accounted for the largest share of 24.3% of the market in 2014 and is expected to reach 25.1% in 2023.
