They suspended trade with other countries and implemented travel restrictions, leading to the decline in tattoo removal procedures in the first half of 2020.

Moreover, the rising cases of COVID-19 are expected to have a significant short-term negative impact on tattoo removal procedures. The short-term effects on the surgical segment are less prominent. However, the adverse impacts of COVID-19 on the global economy can have significant indirect effects on the market.

Key Market Trends

Laser Devices Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Growth Over the Forecast Period

Laser therapy has become one of the more preferred treatments for tattoo removal since it offers a low-risk option with minimal side effects. The procedure uses a high-intensity laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) beams to break up the pigment colors of the tattoo.

Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected tattoo removal procedures. During COVID-19 pandemic 2020, the tattoo removal device manufacturers faced challenges in their manufacturing and supply chain such as delivering products in a timely manner as well as attending to an uneven demand for products and services.

The market faced a period of short-term negative growth in 2020, which can be attributed to factors such as a decline in the product demand from major end-users, limited operations in most of the industries, temporary closure of major end-user facilities (including laser and tattoo Centers and dermatology clinics), disrupted supply chain, and challenges in terms of providing essential/post-sales services.

The type of laser used generally depends upon the pigment colors. Different lasers or different settings of the same laser are needed for different colors. A Q-Switched laser is commonly used to remove tattoos. The laser selectively targets and removes the tattoo without damaging the surrounding tissue, which greatly decreases scarring. Most tattoos do require multiple treatments.

Introduction of new advanced laser products by the market players is also driving the market growth. For instance, in March 2018, 3D-lipo Ltd launched new tattoo removal machine "3D-NanoSure dual wavelength laser" offering an affordable solution for the removal of unwanted tattoos across a full spectrum of ink colours.

Increasing research and development activities in the introdcution of new and advance products is also boosting the market growth. For instance, according to a research article by W Bäumler et al., published in Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences February 2019, stated that picosecond technology is a new strategy for more effective removal of tattoo pigments with lower rate of side effects. Hence, there is an urgent need for more well-designed and randomized controlled trials to compare the treatment modality to the traditional nano-second technology regarding efficacy and adverse reactions.

Thus, owing to above mentioned factors, it is expected to drive segment growth over the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market Over the Forcasted Period

The major factors driving the market growth in North America region include well established healthcare systems, presence of key market players and increasing investment on research and development activities.

In fact, there was a tremendous pressure on the hospitals and other healthcare centers in providing services to COVID-19 patients is also one of the factor which is inhibiting the hospitals in providing services.

Adding to that, according to a research article by Dana E Bregman et al., published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal July 2020, in the United States, the total surgeons' fees derived from both surgical and minimally invasive procedures in 2018 was approximately 5 billion dollars. The pandemic resulted in an approximately 20% decrease in collected fees which showed negative impact on the market in 2020.

Recently with increasing change in lifestyles, many people have been opting for tattoo removal procedures in these countries. Couple this with increasing technological advancement in these countries, demand for innovative tattoo removal procedures is expected to increase in this region.

The market players in United States are adopting various strategies such as partnerships, collaborations and merges to increase market share. For instance, in May 2019, Soliton Inc., launched Rapid Acoustic Pulse tattoo removal device which is designed to remove black ink tattoo from legs, arms and torso in people with fitzpatrick skin type I-III. Thus, owing to above mentioned factors it is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
