"Strong R&D pipeline and positive results of clinical studies to drive the market growth"

A large patient pool is globally suffering from vitiligo and the increasing awareness regarding the disease and the subsequent need for advanced and effective treatment options are driving the vitiligo treatment market growth. As of now, there is no approved treatment option for vitiligo, and this has led to increasing demand for vitiligo treatment options in both developed and developing markets. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), an estimated 84.5 million or one in four Americans, suffer from vitiligo.

Also, in the existing vitiligo treatment options there is a distinct lack of effective treatment options which can often lead to the relapse of vitiligo in the patches of skin previously treated. These factors, combined with the strong R&D pipeline of new vitiligo treatment options of key market players, are some of the major factors driving the market in 2018. However, lack of awareness among the patient population regarding vitiligo treatment in emerging countries, combined with long procedure for regulatory approvals, are factors limiting the growth of global market.
