Acne Medication Market by Therapeutic Class (Retinoids, Antibiotics, Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, and Others), Formulation (Topical Medications and Oral Medications), Type (Prescription Medicines and Over-The-Counter Medicines), Acne Type (Non-Inflammatory Acne and Inflammatory Acne), and Distribution Channel (Grocery Stores, Pharmacies & Drug Stores, and e-Commerce) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2025
Acne or acne vulgaris is a skin disease caused due to clogging of hair follicles with dead skin cells and oil from skin cells. This disease is characterized with pimples, blackheads, oily skin, and scarring. There are two types of acne-non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne, where the latter takes longer duration to heal and can cause permanent effects on the skin. Acne medications are either applied directly, which are present in formulations, or taken in the form of oral pills. These medications work by reducing inflammation and oil production. They also fight with bacteria finally preventing scarring. The common acne medications include retinoids, antibiotics, isotretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, and others.
The global acne medication market was valued at $8,017 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $10,929 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2018 to 2025.
