Market Dynamics

Growth in revenue generated from the sales of scar treatment products and services is directly attributed to the increasing economic growth and rising personal disposable income levels at a global level. While treatment of burned scars and keloids is considered to be medically necessary by regulatory bodies, treatment of spot correction, mild-to-medium acne is not deemed as a medical necessity. Rise in affluent population has also been responsible for further fuelling the demand for aesthetic corrective procedures such as volume restoration, dermal filling, laser treatments, and wrinkle reduction. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers and botulinum type-A injections are prime examples of the same. Markets across the world are also witnessing growth in demand for combination therapeutics in scar treatments, with a view to increase effectiveness of the procedure and shorten the treatment duration.

International regulatory benchmarking for uniform treatment guidelines and shortening of approval times are trends expected to prevail in the industry over the forecast period. This is expected to be accompanied with standardized documentation of clinical evidences of various combination therapeutics related to pharmacovigilance activities.

Market Segmentation by Product type

Based on product type, the overall market has been segmented into topical products, laser products, surface treatment products, and injectable products. The topical product segment is further sub-segmented into creams, gels, oils, and silicone gel sheets. The laser segment has been sub-segmented into CO2, excimer, and pulse-dyed lasers. Within the topical segment, the silicone gel products are expected to witness increased adoption. While silicone gel sheets could find increased application for treating hypertrophic scars and keloids, silicone gels could be used to treat acne. Brand positioning among reputed end-users is a typical marketing strategy being adopted by product manufacturers. Existing brand loyalty among physicians and pharmacists makes it difficult for new entrants to penetrate this market. In this regard, the 'silicone gel sheet' sub-segment has been estimated to be valued at US$ 2,552.1 Mn by the end of 2025, registering a significant CAGR over the forecast period.
