Dermatophytic Onychomycosis: Epidemiology Forecast to 2028
Dermatophytic onychomycosis (DO) is a form of chronic fungal infection of the nails caused by dermatophytes, a type of fungi that requires keratin for growth (Aly, 1994; Elewski, 1998). The disease can occur in both fingernails and toenails, though it is most commonly found affecting the toes, and predominantly affects adults ages 30-60 years (Elewski and Charif, 1997). Symptoms of this disease can include nail discoloration, thickening of the nail, splitting of the nail, separation of the nail from the nail bed, and overall discomfort in the affected area (Rogers and Bassler, 2001).
In 2018, there were 24,061,831 total prevalent cases of DO and 9,624,733 diagnosed prevalent cases of DO in the US, in men and women, combined for all ages. By 2028 these numbers are expected to grow to 31,498,328 and 12,599,329, respectively. Men accounted for more than 60% of the cases in the US in 2018 and adults ages 60-69 years comprise the largest number of cases in the ten-year age groupings captured in this forecast, with more than 30% of the diagnosed prevalent cases of DO.
GlobalData’s forecast is strengthened by the use of peer-reviewed publications to forecast the total prevalent cases of DO in the US. Additionally, this forecast is strengthened by the US of primary market research, through a prescriber survey, to estimate the diagnosis rate of DO in the US.
