Global Surgical Lasers Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global surgical lasers market size was valued at 2.14 billion in 2023. The global market is further expected to reach USD 2.84 billion by 2029 from USD 2.24 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.84% during the forecast period.

Surgical lasers use a light beam to treat blood vessels that are bleeding and remove 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.


The growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries is one of the major factors propelling the surgical lasers market growth.

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases among older people worldwide and increasing funds to develop technologically superior devices to increase the efficiency of treatments are majorly driving the global surgical lasers market growth. 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 trends 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 laser market. People are highly concerned about the side effects of surgical laser 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.
