Robust Demand for Skin Whitening Products Drives Asia Pacific Market to the Top
The different types of products available in the global market for physician dispensed cosmeceuticals are skincare products, eye care products, hair care products, and injectable botox, among others. Among them, the skincare products segment accounts for a mammoth share in the market because of the growing demand for effective cosmeceuticals to cure dermatological conditions. The rising consciousness among the elderly and the middle-aged people is also serving to generate demand for this product segment, especially for anti-aging products.
From a geographical perspective, North America grosses the most in the global market for physician dispensed cosmeceuticals. Going forward, however, Asia Pacific will beat North America in terms of growth rate by clocking a robust 12.3% CAGR from 2016 to 2024. This is mainly because of high demand for skin whitening, acne treatment, and hyperpigmentation products owing to the tropical climate and a sizeable proportion of teenagers.
Branded Cosmeceuticals Bolstering Market by Helping to Overcome Challenges
A noticeable trend these days is dermatologists producing their cosmeceuticals along with running their skincare centers. This is lending momentum to the market and will continue doing so in the years to come as well.
On the flipside, apprehensions of consumers regarding the potential side effects pertaining to the use of cosmeceuticals can pose a roadblock to the global market for physician dispensed cosmeceuticals. Apart from that, dearth of knowledge among customers about cosmeceuticals, namely Botox and derma fillers is also likely to crimp growth in the market, particularly in developing and under-developed countries. Economic downturns can also have a negative impact on sales.
Helping to overcome such challenges is the growing demand for branded cosmeceuticals because of their safety and efficacy and the increasing awareness about new skin conditions resulting from changes in climate and pollution.
