Fortune Business Insights™ presents this information in its latest report titled Dermatology Drugs Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Application (Acne, Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis, and Others), By Route of Administration (Oral, Parenteral, and Topical), By Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies), and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030”.

Dermatology drugs are medicines prescribed by medical professionals to treat patients suffering from a wide range of skin-related disorders, such as vitiligo, dermatitis, acne, and skin cancer. The increasing prevalence of skin problems, such as acne among teenagers, rising product launches, and large-scale clinical studies are some of the major factors that will propel the market’s growth.

Decreased Consumption of Dermatology Drugs During COVID-19 Pandemic Slowed Market Progress

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative influence on the market’s growth as key manufacturers faced several supply chain disruptions in this market. Lockdowns and other restrictions imposed by governments forced patients to either postpone or cancel their visits to dermatological clinics, which further impeded the demand for dermatology drugs and the market’s growth.

Almirall Entered Research Partnership with CRG to Develop Models to Identify New NMSC Treatments

Almirall, S.A. announced that it had entered a research collaboration with the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in May 2023, which is an international biomedical research institute of excellence. The collaboration aims to design and characterize cutting-edge preclinical models that will assist medical researchers in identifying new treatments for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer (NMSC).

Growing Incidence of Skin Disorders to Propel Market Progress

The number of people living with skin conditions, such as psoriasis, severe acne, dermatitis, and vitiligo, is increasing across the world, especially in developing countries, where access to proper dermatological care is limited. This scenario has resulted in a robust demand for novel and effective skincare products that can help patients better manage their skin conditions. Many key market players are focusing on launching new dermatological medications to improve patient outcomes and quality of care. These factors are predicted to fuel the dermatology drugs market growth in the coming years.

However, the market may be impeded due to the expensive cost of the treatments and the risk of side effects.

Key Market Players to Focus on Growth Strategies to Boost Dominance

These companies are increasing their focus on implementing various corporate growth strategies, such as partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions, to boost their dominance in the market and expand their customer base.
