Ozone Therapy in Dermatology Market - Emerging from the Battle of Legalization

The superior disinfectant properties of ozone as compared to chlorine enthused scientists towards exploring its potential in the healthcare industry in the mid-nineteenth century. As studies claiming the effectiveness of ozone therapy in preventing bacterial growth began coming to light, the procedure caused a stir among therapists and physicians across the world. However, revolution, in the true sense, was led by German physician Dr. Hänsler, who manufactured the first modern ozone generator that became a benchmark for other physicians.

Since the very foundation of the ozone therapy market was laid in Germany, Europe gained the early slice of the revenue, and, even today, takes a leading stance. Despite the thriving of the healthcare industry in North America, the European ozone therapy market accounts for relatively three-fold revenue share. Legal frameworks applied to ozone in Europe are dependent upon its intended use, which widens its application in the healthcare industry. However, ozone therapy still awaits a legal designation in North America.

According to the U.S. FDA, ozone is deemed toxic with no useful medical application in adjunctive, preventive, or specific therapy, and exposure to ozone above a permissible degree can cause health hazards. However, in a handful of states with state-specific legislations, laws governing the use of non-allopathic medications approve ozone therapy for the treatment of certain illnesses. In addition, the American Academy of Ozonotherapy is offering ozone therapy training courses and spreading awareness regarding its antibacterial properties, which is entailing steady progress of the industry in the region.

Two crucial trends are prodding changes in the way ozone therapy is used for dermatology applications…

Use of Ozone Devices to Remain Prominent for Ozone Therapy

Ozone devices currently account for ~ 45% of the market share, surpassing topical medications. These exponential sales of ozone devices can be highly attributed to the demand for dermatological ozone therapy machines for treating eczema, acneiform eruption, and psoriasis, as ozone directly inactivates bacterial toxins. However, as the possibilities of developing resistance against antibiotics are high, the sales of topical medications are likely to grow steadily. Among the medications, ozonated oils and creams are perceived to have better healing times when applied on herpes labialis and bacterial tissues to regulate blood circulation, and are increasingly being prescribed by medical experts.

Patients Prefer Undergoing Ozone Therapy at Clinics

Clinics account for over half of the sales of ozone devices and topical medications. Since ozone therapy in dermatology falls under the category of an outpatient procedure, clinics are deemed suitable for patients who are affected by dermatological diseases. With lesser surgical instrument requisites, minimally invasive technique, and reduced healthcare costs, patients evince a marked preference for ozone therapies in clinics over hospitals. These trends are likely to shrink the contribution of hospitals from ~ 32% in 2018 to ~ 29% by 2027.

German Companies Take the Innovative Way to Grow Market Share

Ozone therapy has been practiced in Europe for over 50 years, and currently, ~11,000 therapists in Germany, ~3,500 in Russia, and ~3,000 therapists in Italy use ozone therapy in dermatology for achieving better patient outcomes. With a large base of therapists in Germany, research and development activities have been accelerating in top gear.

In 2018, an innovative approach was taken by German companies to extend the traditional scope of ozone therapy by introducing ozone through direct administration for regulating blood circulation. A leading player - Dr. Hänsler Ozonosan - based in Germany, announced the launch of Ozonosan alpha plus, which is an integration of an ozone therapy unit with a photometric measuring unit, to facilitate continuous ozone level control. Besides the regular ozone applications, Ozonosan alpha plus offers major ozone infusion through a patient’s blood or rectal insufflation for circulation-enhancing effect. Another German player - Humares GmbH - with utmost focus on stability, accuracy, quality, and simplicity, developed Humazona®, a device that offers versatile therapy for activating the immune system so as to create a revitalizing effect.

While a high concentration of market goliaths lies in Germany, owing to a growing number of patients opting for ozone therapy in dermatology in Italy, the country is likely to spectate exponential growth in the region.
