Global Acne Vulgaris Market Growth Propelled by Rising Awareness About Symptoms and Treatments for Acne

April 13, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Acne Vulgaris Market: Epidemiology, Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2033," the global acne vulgaris market size is witnessing steady growth. Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory skin disorder and primarily triggered by Cutibacterium acnes. It comprises the formation of comedones, papules, pustules, and frequent cysts as a result of the obstruction and inflammation caused in the pilosebaceous units. It occurs through excess sebum production, follicular plugging with sebum and keratinocytes, colonization of follicles with acne-causing bacteria, and release of numerous inflammatory mediators. It is initiated when the bacterium breaks down sebum into free fatty acids that irritate the follicular epithelium and elicit an inflammatory response by neutrophils and then lymphocytes, which further disrupts the epithelium. It is primarily triggered during the onset of puberty when numerous hormonal changes take place in the body and due to excessive sweating in humid conditions. It is often treated with various topical agents, such as benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, retinoids, and salicylic acid. It can also be cured with system therapy, such as oral antibiotics, hormonal therapy, and isotretinoin, depending on the requirements of the patients. 

Global Acne Vulgaris Market Trends:

At present, the increasing occurrence of acne vulgaris in individuals due to the consumption of unhealthy diets and the adoption of sedentary lifestyle habits represents one of the primary factors strengthening the growth of the market.

Additionally, the increasing production of acne treatment products consisting of various active ingredients, such as benzoyl peroxide, retinoid, glycolic acid, and lactic acid, along with witch hazel, to reduce inflammation, is supporting the growth of the market.
