Global Dermatoscopes Market 2017-2021
Dermatoscopy refers to the examination of skin using skin surface microscopy. It is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that permits a quick in vivo assessment of morphology of the epidermis, the dermoepidermal junction, and the papillary dermis, which cannot be inspected with a naked eye. With dermatoscopy, dermatoscopic structures can be assessed effectively, which helps compare with the basic histopathologic alterations, and hence, the technique can be viewed as a connection between clinical and histopathologic examination.

The growth in skin related treatments in cosmetic dermatology field has demonstrated a huge development in dermatology market. Cosmetic surgeries are gradually expanding, allowing the dermatoscopes market to grow.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing usage in diagnostic procedures. The diagnostic accuracy for melanoma is considerably better with those specialists who are experts in the field of dermatoscopy than with those who do not have any specialized training in the same. There is a considerable improvement in the sensitivity or detection of the malignant melanomas with specialists trained in dermatoscopy, as well as specificity or percentages of non-melanomas diagnosed correctly as compared with the traditional clinical naked eye examination.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is low compliance to digital dermatoscopy follow-up. Digital dermatoscopic monitoring has demonstrated the best method for early diagnosis of melanomas. The reason of its success lies within the fact that this method makes it possible to record an image which can be used to compare with the subsequent findings collected in follow-up tests. By comparing these conditions subtle changes in a lesion can be detected and evaluated with ease.
