U.S. Scar Treatment Market: Overview
Often considered a concept that draws from wound care and first aid, scar treatment has emerged as a niche market promising high growth to medical device manufacturers. However, products used in scar therapy are far more advanced than conventional first-aid adhesives. Driven by innovations, demand in the U.S. scar treatment market is poised to surge exponentially between 2016 and 2024.
A scar is any mark on the skin caused by injury, burns, surgery, acne, or inflammation of tissue. Scars can impact the mental and physical well-being of an individual, resulting in poor self-esteem, depression, embarrassment, and altered social interactions. Scars can be of various types depending on their age, color, shape, and sizes. The incidence of skin problems leading to scar formation is significantly high in the U.S., which is driving the scar treatment market in the country.
Additionally, the U.S. scar treatment market is significantly gaining from the easy availability of technologically advanced products with the capability of fading apparent scars. The growing geriatric population and rising consciousness about appearance among consumers are also aiding the expansion of the scar treatment market in the U.S. Increasing expenditure on personal grooming also has been boosting the U.S. scar treatment market.
A comprehensive overview of the U.S. scar treatment market has been provided in the report. The factors impacting the market’s growth are studied in detail. The report also presents insights into the growth drivers and restraints that are expected to influence the market’s trajectory during the forecast period. Some of the companies operating in the market are profiled in the report to examine the competition prevailing in the U.S. scar treatment market.
U.S. Scar Treatment Market: Key Opportunities and Threats
The increasing disposable income of consumers and rising economic growth are cited as reasons for the revenue generated from the increasing sale of scar treatment products. It is important to note that while the treatment of keloids and burn scars is considered medically important by regulatory bodies, the treatment of mild to medium acne and spot correction is not considered a medical necessity. However, a rise in the affluence of the population has been fuelling the demand for aesthetic corrective procedures such as dermal filling, wrinkle reduction, volume restoration, and laser treatment.
Botulinum type-A injections and hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are primarily used for aesthetically improving a person’s appearance.
The U.S. scar treatment market is also significantly gaining from the increasing demand for combination therapeutics in scar treatment to enhance the effectiveness of procedures and shorten the time taken for treatment.
The various products available in the U.S. scar treatment market include ointments, creams, gels, oils, and sprays. These products have proven helpful in reducing redness, bumps, pain, and itching caused by scars. Since these products can mostly be applied onto scars without any medical supervision, demand for them is quite high in the U.S. Additionally, the demand for minimally invasive surgical treatments and laser treatments has also significantly increased for the treatment of more severe scars.
On the flip side, some of restraints witnessed by the market include the increasing awareness about the side effects associated with the usage of scar treatment products. The high cost of scar treatment therapies also has an adverse impact on the scar treatment market in the U.S.
