Skin Diseases Market


To identify the market size for skin diseases (globally, EU, US, and China), the market size for treatments, give a demographic of skin problems (by age and gender), competitors or new technologies/solutions that are available, and costs.

Early Findings

  • "The global dermatologicals market accounted for $15,563 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $36,205 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 10.9% from 2019 to 2026."
  • Dermatological agents, also known as dermatologicals, are products that are applied topically on the skin. These products are used to treat skin conditions, such as pigmentation, acne, wrinkles, and psoriasis, and are also employed to prevent certain skin disorders. Dermatologicals are also used for routine skincare for skin maintenance.
  • The growth of the dermatologicals market is due to the "rise in demand for topical dermatological drugs such as anti-inflammatory agents, anti-infective, local anesthetics, cleansers, and emollients to treat acne. Additionally, the rise in awareness about skin diseases, high demand for rapid diagnosis, and a surge in the incidence of skin cancer and other skin disorders are among the factors that boost the growth of the dermatologicals market."
  • Some dermatologicals, such as systemic preparations, are used in patients who are not responsive to topical medications. These preparations are also used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
  • In 2018, the psoriasis segment held the largest share of the global market (~40%). The dermatitis segment had the fastest CAGR (12.3% by 2026). Other segments in the dermatologicals market include skin cancer, rosacea, and alopecia.
