Fact.MR released a report discussing the rise in demand for products that treat various skin conditions and diseases such as acne, atopic dermatitis and skin infections, among others. This is predicted to drive the dermatological product sales market to surpass $13 million by the end of 2018.

The report further discusses how this rise in product demand will be the highest among women due to their increase in skin conditions like acne, rosacea and skin cancer in the past years and is predicted to reach a 3.7% CAGR during 2018-2027.

Acne Treatments Lead the Market

With the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) discussing how acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S., acne treatment products are expected to bring in more that $3 million by the end of 2018.

The Rise in Skin Conditions

Skin allergies and lifestyle-related skin complaints have also risen in consumers, leading to an increased use in dermocosmetic products. The AAD discussed how nearly 7.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from psoriasis.

Common skin conditions such as eczema, acne, extreme skin sensitivity and reactive skin are being shown among children and adults who are looking for treatments and products that they can use on their skin.
