Scar Treatment Industry Overview

The global scar treatment market size was valued at USD 12.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1% from 2021 to 2028. 

The market is largely being driven by the increasing need for improving aesthetic appeal in individuals and complete skin rejuvenation. Women account for the majority of the demand as they are more concerned about their appearance. The increasing number of road accidents and burn injuries have also resulted in a rise in the demand for cosmetic procedures on a global scale. A global increase in the number of hypertrophic burn marks, wherein the victim’s appearance has become distorted, is also boosting the demand for scar treatment products.

The first two waves of the COVID-19 pandemic were marked by the rapid adoption of telemedicine in all domains of the healthcare sector. Skincare, being non-emergency, requires minimal hospital visits. Even though final procedures require a patient to visit the hospital or doctors’ office, pre-planning and post-procedure management are largely preferred through telemedicine. COVID-19 may have temporarily impeded the market growth in 2020, the trends of telemedicine are expected to play an important factor in optimizing the market growth as compared to non-covid situations. In addition, the adoption of ambulatory surgery centers and the development of portable or mobile scar treatment devices are expected to boost the growth of the market in both, developed as well as developing regions.

The growing number of road accidents is one of the high-impact rendering factors, raising the demand for scar treatment products. According to Population Reference Bureau, around 50 million people are injured due to road accidents every year, which frequently leads to the occurrence of scars, requiring surgical treatment. In addition, patients who undergo such surgeries develop surgical scars and are provided topical products to improve and reduce their appearance. Hence, the rising number of road accidents, coupled with the increasing number of cosmetic surgeries, is expected to propel the need for topical products for scar treatment.

According to Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, 181,132 scar revision procedures were performed in 2019, making it one of the top five performed reconstruction procedures. Hence, the demand for greater aesthetic appeal plays an important role in increasing the number of reconstructive surgical cases for scar revision. In addition to skin corrective surgeries, scar treatment products are also widely adopted.
