"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers market size was valued at USD 3.88 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 4.13 billion in 2023 to USD 7.15 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period.
Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are also known as hyaluronan, a clear substance naturally produced in the human body. There are two types of hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers available, biphasic and monophasic. The existing players operating in the market are focusing on constant innovation and upgrading their product portfolio with new and efficient product offerings for better and more accurate aesthetic outcomes for patients.
The hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers market growth is attributed to the increasing demand for aesthetic beauty, driven by the minimally invasive nature of the procedures and the increasing efficiency of the Hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers. The rise in awareness regarding these products in both developing and developed nations, the emergence of new products, and the associated new indications, such as laugh lines, are also propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing investments by major players in research and development for such products are also contributing to the growth of the market globally.
COVID-19 Pandemic Slowed Market Growth in 2020 due to Shutdown of Dermatology Clinics
The impact of COVID-19 resulted in lesser demand for hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers in 2020. This is attributed to the cancellations of non-invasive surgeries and the low admission rate for anti-aging treatment during the pandemic.
The widespread disruption caused by COVID-19 has significantly affected the manufacturing of raw HA. The imposition of lockdown in potentially affected areas has led to a halt in the supply chain of hyaluronic acid, leading to a decrease in sales.
Furthermore, major players in the market, such as Allergan Aesthetics (AbbVie, Inc.), have witnessed a huge loss in their revenues, according to their 2020 annual report. However, in 2021, these companies witnessed an increase in revenue, which was mainly driven by the resumption of filler surgeries.
Strong demand and adoption of these products in the forecast period are expected to enable the market to witness strong growth prospects henceforth.

Rising Demand for Hyaluronic Acid Based Dermal Fillers Among Young Adults to Boost Market Growth
The market witnessed significant growth in the last decade. A prominent reason is the rising concerns about maintaining beauty standards among young adults. People between the ages of 20-29 usually opt for dermal filler procedures to prevent aging by smoothening the skin texture or correcting wrinkles.
The increase in filler procedures among young adults has stimulated the market players to launch their products consisting of HA-based fillers.
Factors such as growing aesthetic awareness and launching exclusive products for young adults are expected to significantly contribute to the market growth in the coming years.
Increasing Demand for Minimally Invasive Facial Treatments Worldwide to Boost Market Growth
The need for anti-aging cosmetic therapies has increased as the world's population has aged. HA products are highly recommended due to their moisturizing and viscoelastic capabilities in minimally invasive anti-aging treatments. The rising interest among people for younger-looking and perfect skin through noninvasive dermatology methods is expected to increase the minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures using HA fillers, thereby driving the overall market.
Similarly, the extensive presence of hospitals and dermatology clinics conducting cosmetic procedures with HA-based dermal fillers across the globe is expected to further propel the market growth. Moreover, an increase in research studies of these products and their positive results, coupled with recent regulatory approvals of products, is another critical factor attributable to the global market growth.
Such an increase in the research studies of these products and growing minimally invasive procedures is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
Growing HA-based Dermal Fillers Procedures and Introduction of Products to Propel Market
Fillers are utilized to address scars, acne, and wrinkles, as well as chin, cheek, and lip augmentation. Hence, this has led to a keen interest among patients worldwide for dermal filler-based procedures.
Factors such as skin resilience, repair discoloration, and skin cell regeneration are associated with HA fillers and have increased their adoption in the market. Furthermore, an increase in the number of hyaluronic acids dermal filler procedures compared to other nonsurgical procedures is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the approval of many new products has revolutionized the industry, and the portfolio of approved products is continuously increasing. According to various surveys, HA-based fillers procedure is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure across the globe.
The introduction of products coupled with increasing HA-based dermal filler procedures is expected to drive market growth in the coming years.
Presence of Alternative Dermal Fillers to Hamper the Market Growth
Despite the wide aesthetic applications of HA-based dermal fillers, several limiting factors of these products are projected to hamper the global market growth in the coming years.
HA-based dermal fillers are limited to treating specific types of wrinkles, such as dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and glabellar lines, coupled with less longevity. However, due to the high efficacy rate, patient satisfaction, and usage in dynamic wrinkles, botulinum toxin type A dermal filler is leading the nonsurgical cosmetic procedure worldwide.
Furthermore, other biodegradable fillers, such as calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and Poly-L-lactic acid, are gaining popularity as alternative fillers used as implants with high longevity. This longevity has increased the demand for botox therapies compared to HA-based dermal fillers, restraining the market globally.
Furthermore, key players are heavily investing in their research & development for product launches in alternative dermal fillers (soft tissue fillers), which is anticipated to restrict the market during the forecast period.
