Executive Summary

Acne is a disorder in the skin that is caused by inflammation of the skin glands and hair follicles and is characterized by comedones and pimples specifically in certain areas like on the face, back and chest etc. During acne, sebaceous glands become clogged and infected which result in the formation of acne. It is most commonly found in teenagers and adolescents but also occurs in infants and adults. Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and scar the skin. Acne Vulgaris is the medical term for common acne. Acne can be mild, moderate or severe.

There are four main causes of acne vulgaris: hyper-keratinization, excess sebum production, bacteria Propionibacterium and inflammation. Dermatologists have the most experience treating different types of acne. On the basis of severity, there are six types of acne: Acne Rosacea, Acne Cosmetica, Acne Fulminans, Acne Keloidalis Nuchae (AKN), Acne Chloracne and Acne Medicamentosa. Several treatments are available in the market nowadays with effective results. Acne can be treated through three therapies namely systematic therapy, topical therapy and physical therapy. Currently acne treatment market is dominated by topical therapy or topical drugs that are widely used by large number of population for acne treatment.

The global acne treatment market is growing rapidly over the years and is expected to increase further in the forecasted period (2016-2020).
