The global acne drugs market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2014-2019. Acne drugs refer to the medications used for treating a dermatological infection characterized by the inflammation in the hair follicles on skin. It is usually caused by hormonal imbalance, oily skin, accumulation of dead skin cells, bacteria, stress, inadequate intake of water and excessive consumption of sugars, salts or carbohydrates. Some of the commonly used acne drugs include topical medications, such as retinoids, salicylic and azelaic acid-based ointments and dapsone-based gels, along with antibiotics, anti-androgen agents and isotretinoin. These drugs minimize the levels of oil production in the body, speed up skin cell turnover, control acne breakouts, reduce scarring and damage to the skin and prevent inflammation.
The increasing prevalence of skin-related diseases, such as acne vulgaris, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, rising awareness among the masses regarding the benefits of using premium skin care products is driving the market growth. The market is further being driven by the development of effective therapeutics and treatment alternatives with reduced side effects and high potential. Increasing consumer preference for products manufactured using natural ingredients is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Manufacturers are, therefore, developing products infused with natural herbs and organic ingredients, such as aloe vera, green tea, honey, jojoba oil and rosemary, for treating acne. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, along with the proliferation of online retail platforms that offer customized acne drugs according to the user’s skin type, are expected to create a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global acne drugs market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
