Executive Summary

Hyaluronic acid is found in many parts of the human body and in animals. It is a naturally occurring substance and is found in eyes, joints, skin and rooster combs. Hyaluronic acid is also called Hyaluronan, Hyaluronate or HA.

The first hyaluronan biomedical product, Healon, was developed in the 1970s and 1980s by Pharmacia, and is approved for use in eye surgery. There are many uses of hyaluronic acid, such as in cancer, wound repair, skin management, cosmetic use, medical use, inflammation and others.

The hyaluronic acid raw material can be segmented on the basis of application and source. On the basis of application, the HA raw material can be divided into pharmaceutical segment, cosmetic segment and food segment. On the basis of source, the HA raw material can be divided into animal based source and non-animal based source.

The global hyaluronic acid raw material market is expected to increase at a significant growth rate during the forecasted period (2016-2020). The global hyaluronic acid raw material market is supported by various growth drivers, such as increase in the global healthcare products market, rising medical aesthetic procedures worldwide, increasing global obese population, aging population, etc. Yet, the market faces certain challenges, such as, less knowledge on long term effectiveness, side-effects of oral dose of HA, topical use of HA, etc.
