Global Surgical Lasers Market Size (2023 to 2028)

As per our research report, the size of the global surgical lasers market was valued at 2.14 billion in 2023. It is further expected to reach USD 2.72 billion by 2028, increasing at a CAGR of 4.84% during the forecast period.

Surgical lasers use a light beam to treat blood vessels that are bleeding and removing diseased tissues. Lasers are used in various surgical procedures, including laparoscopic surgery, oncology, cardiology, dermatology, and ophthalmology. Many medical operations, including cosmetic surgery, refractive eye surgery, dental procedures, and general surgery, use these lasers. As a result, the rising demand for non-invasive surgical procedures is propelling the laser industry forward. To remove, vaporize, and cut tissue, a general surgeon employs a variety of laser wavelengths and laser distribution devices.

There are several different kinds of laser beams on the market, each with a different color and use, such as neodymium, yttrium-aluminum-garnet, argon, diode, and carbon dioxide. Laser surgery can be performed on any part of the body, although it is most often used in eye surgery and cosmetic skin procedures. Breast surgery, gallbladder removal, hernia repair, strong organ surgery, and pilonidal cyst care are common surgical procedures. The Carbon Dioxide laser converts light energy into heat, which is then used to minimize bleeding. In contrast, the Neodymium yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser allows surgeons to see and touch body parts that would normally only be accessible by open surgery.


Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, rising prevalence of chronic diseases among older people worldwide, increasing funds to develop technologically superior devices to increase the efficiency of treatments is majorly driving the global surgical lasers market growth.

Additionally, factors such as increased stress levels and increased consumption rate of unhealthy and junk food are also boosting the growth of the surgical lasers market. The surgical lasers market is expected to expand further during the forecast period owing to factors such as developments in healthcare institutions, surging medical tourism trend in developing nations, increasing health awareness and the demand for minimally invasive surgeries, favorable reimbursement policies designed for several laser procedures, these factors are likely to generate lucrative opportunities of growth for stakeholders and boost the business growth during the forecast period.

Increased medical laser applications in aerospace and military equipment, healthcare, manufacturing operations, and others are a big plus to the market to grow further. Also, Direct-energy lasers are widely adopted to optimize various existing industrial processes. The developments to increase efficiency and productivity, leading to increased adoptions of these lasers in government and public organizations, offer lucrative opportunities for growth of the surgical lasers market during the forecast period.


Delays in the approval procedure of surgical lasers due to strict policies and regulations in various countries are a major challenge to the stakeholders in the Surgical Lasers Market. People are highly concerned about the side effects of surgical lasers procedures, limiting the adoption of surgical lasers. Laser treatments and surgeries are expensive, and people in developing countries are reluctant to choose laser surgeries due to inconvenient reimbursement policies.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global surgical lasers market:

The covid-19 pandemic has had a major effect on the industry. Lockdowns enforced worldwide due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic have lowered demand for surgical laser systems moderately. Lasers are used for various uses, including shrinking or destroying tumors and wounds, removing moles, warts, and tattoos, and reducing the presence of wrinkles on the skin. Patients undergoing laser treatments have decreased dramatically in recent months, both in hospitals and other specialist centers.

For the treatment of covid-19 patients, various countries have upgraded healthcare services such as hospital beds, nurses, necessary staff, and medical devices. Dedicated laser therapy centers, such as specialist laboratories and hospitals, have been shut down. In several nations, this has had a major effect on patients visiting surgical, medical, and aesthetic surgeries. Because of the virus's high contagiousness and its ability to propagate through the air and droplets via respiratory transmission, dental professionals were at a high risk of contracting and spreading the disease. Many dental therapies, however, use lasers. Because of the unique tissue–matter interference effects of laser wavelengths, certain special measures must be applied to standard protocols to ensure that patients benefit from this technology. As a result, the global surgical lasers market is expected to have growth in the coming years.

This research report on the global surgical lasers market has been segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories and calculated market size and forecast for each segment until 2028.

Surgical Lasers Market - By Product:

  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers

  • Nd: YAG lasers

  • argon lasers

Based on product, the CO2 lasers segment dominates the global surgical lasers market and is likely to witness growth at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The factors responsible for the growth of the CO2 lasers market segment are rapid developments in cosmetic laser treatment and the availability of innovative CO2-based surgical lasers.

Surgical Lasers Market - By Procedure Type:

  • Laparoscopic surgery

  • Open surgery

  • Percutaneous surgery

Based on procedure type, the Laparoscopic Surgery segment leads the surgical lasers market and is expected to display growth during the forecast period. Laparoscopic procedures are highly adopted due to the benefits of those procedures and the increasing demand for less invasive procedures.

Surgical Lasers Market - By Application:

  • Dentistry

  • Ophthalmology

  • Dermatology

  • Gynecology

  • Cardiology

  • Oncology

  • Urology

Based on application, the urology segment contributes a major share to the global surgical lasers market and is growing rapidly at the highest CAGR.
