Laser Systems to Aid Wire and Cable Industry Growth in Medical Sector

Published By: IndustryARC Published On : 20-Oct-2016

Lasers are widely used in medical sector as a tool in surgery and diagnosis. Lasers are mainly used for cancer diagnosis, cancer treatment, cosmetic dermatology, medical imaging, plastic surgeries and many other medical applications. Diode Lasers, solid state lasers, gas lasers and dye lasers are the most commonly used laser types in the medical field. These lasers majorly attributed to their use in medical applications such as photo dynamic therapy, aesthetic medication including wrinkles, scars, moles, liver spots, excess fat, unwanted hair, skin discoloration and spider veins; tooth whitening and surgical treatments.

Among all types of lasers, diode lasers are mostly used due to its properties such as compact size, brightness, reliability and increased power in delivering the performance. Diode lasers find their service in many medical divisions such as dermatology, urology, gynecology, cardiovascular diseases, rheumatology, traumatology, gastroenterology and many others. Solid state lasers have advantages like easy to construct, no chance of wasting material and cost economical. These types of lasers majorly find their application in endoscopy and diagnostics. There are many types of gas lasers like Carbon di oxide (CO2) lasers, Carbon monoxide lasers, Nitrogen lasers and others. Carbon di oxide (CO2) lasers are widely used for soft tissue surgery because water absorbs this frequency of light very well. Dye lasers are very versatile in nature so, they are widely used in medical applications such as treatment of skin, blood vessel disorders, scars and kidney stones.

Solid state lasers are expected to grow at the fastest rate due to technological advances and increasing application in diagnostic field. Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet and Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) are expected to drive growth over next five years. Urology, Cardiology and Gynecology are top three segments are key segments in medical laser systems market. According to statistics provided by the WHO estimate that over 17.5 million people annually are reported with chronic cases of cardiovascular disorder representing 31% of global deaths.

About 610,000 Americans die from heart disease each year that’s 1 in every 4 deaths that require surgical follow-up. The holmium yttrium aluminum garnet lasers are the fastest growing lasers. It finds medical application in the field of dermatology, urology and cardiology. Increasing demand of cosmetic procedures such as pigment lesion, tattoo and birthmark removal, temporary hair removal and wrinkle treatment contribute to the high growth rate of these laser systems.

The United States represents the largest medical laser systems market in the world. The key drivers of this market in the US are aging population and rise in eye problems, diagnostic growth, plastic surgeries, new applications in dentistry, rise in non-surgical cosmetic procedures and growing popularity of fiber-lasers in micro surgery. The wires and cables used in the medical laser systems are exposed to high temperatures and radiation so, wires and cables used in these systems should have high grade quality. Silicone is used in applications for every industry including medical applications with implantable and medical grade silicone wire and cables. The demand of medical grade silicone wires and cables is high in lasers as they are ultra-flexible, biocompatible, chemical resistant, high voltage dielectric and sterilization (autoclave, chemical, radiation). The silicone wires and cables offer an array of applications in medical sector such as ultrasonic scanners, ECG, EKG electrography, radiography, infrared thermography, dialysis, endoscopy, laparoscopy, medical robotics, medical lasers, dental cameras, elastography and MRI among others.
