Overview of the global photomedicine market

Technavio’s market study identifies the increase in SAD cases as one of the primary factors for the growth of the photomedicine market. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a medical disorder caused due to limited or no exposure to sunlight. SAD occurs when the individuals’ serotonin levels drops due to less exposure to sunlight, primarily during winter. It affects an individual's overall productivity, causes a loss of interest in most activities, and affects interpersonal relationships. Additionally, it also disrupts the individual’s sleep habits. This will subsequently drive the need for light therapy or phototherapy which uses lightboxes as a substitute to sunlight to increase the serotonin level. Our market research analysts estimate that this market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 7% by 2021.

The growing adoption of light therapy boxes to avoid winter blues will be one of the key trends that will gain traction in the photomedicine market during the next few years. Individuals suffering from winter blues or SAD are advised to use photomedicine therapy products such as light therapy boxes or daylight therapy lamp that are used as substitutes to sunlight. When the body receives less than the required amount of sunlight, individuals undergo several hormonal changes that affects the serotonin production of the brain. Absence of the feel-good hormone serotonin leads to sadness or depression.
