Global Acne Treatment Market Size to Reach USD 13.59 Billion in 2030 | Emergen Research

Increase in launch of novel acne products and rising demand for personal wellness and smooth spotless skin due to high psychological burden associated with acne are driving global acne treatment market revenue growth

Vancouver, Sept. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global acne treatment market size was USD 9.10 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period, according to the latest analysis by Emergen Research. Increase in launch of novel acne products and rising demand for personal wellness and smooth spotless skin due to high psychological burden associated with acne are some key factors driving acne treatment market revenue growth. In addition, growing consumption of unhealthy food is increasing acne problems, which is further increasing the demand for acne treatment.

Rising demand for personal wellness and smooth spotless skin due to high psychological burden associated with acne has led to an increasing number of launches of novel acne products. For instance, on 28 October 2019, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved Amzeeq, which is a topical form of antibiotic minocycline. The drug was earlier available as an oral antibiotic, however, now it is available in non-pill form and delivers minocycline in form of foam. Foamix Pharmaceuticals, a manufacturer of the product has leveraged its proprietary Molecule Stabilizing Technology (MST) platform to deliver minocycline effectively in a foam-based vehicle. The production of such innovative and novel products for treatment of acne is expected to substantially propel market revenue growth.

Additionally, growing consumption of unhealthy food is increasing acne problems is another factor that can increase prevalence of acne among people of all ages, which can significantly increase demand for acne treatment products. Consumption of food products with high sugar in products, such as pastries, cakes, and soda cans, significantly worsens acne. According to a research report conducted on 2,258 patients who were placed on a low-glycemic diet, it was noted that 87% of patients reported reduced acne. However, increasing number of fast-food outlets and popularity of street food is expected to contribute to growing prevalence of acne and hence driving growth of the market.

Factors, such as skin positivity movement and lack of awareness about skin issues, are restraining revenue growth of the market. Poor understanding of risk factors for skin infections, such as acne may delay recognition of symptoms of some harmful skin ailments and further delay treatment. However, an increase in awareness campaigns by various skincare professionals through social media and launch of novel products to cure acne is expected to support growth of the market in long term.
