Global Onychomycosis Treatment Market to Reach US$ 4.3 Billion by 2028, Impelled by Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

Published on Oct 03, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Onychomycosis Treatment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global onychomycosis treatment market reached a value of US$ 3.1 Billion in 2022. Onychomycosis is a fungal infection that occurs in the fingernails and toenails, resulting in discomfort, discoloration, chronic pain, and disfigurement. It is a common nail infection in patients with athlete’s feet and is caused by various organisms, such as dermatophytes, yeasts, and non-dermatophyte molds. It is usually diagnosed through oxygen and hydrogen (KOH) examination, potassium, culture, and histopathological examinations of nail clippings and nail biopsies and is treated through laser therapy, drugs, and photodynamic therapies.

Global Onychomycosis Treatment Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of chronic medical ailments, such as onychomycosis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), diabetes, and peripheral artery disease (PAD) among the masses. In addition, the development of water-soluble antifungal treatment solutions that can be administered orally and aid in preventing secondary bacterial infections and the growth of fungus represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, onychomycosis is highly prevalent among millennials and adults due to the increased exposure to public swimming pools and utilization of tight, contaminated, or soiled clothes, shoes, and socks. This, coupled with the rising popularity of topical nail lacquers and ointments to maintain nail hygiene, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the developing healthcare infrastructure across the globe is also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 4.3 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.37% during the forecast (2023-2028).
