During the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown situation, the governments of various countries restricted physical movement, and citizens preferred to stay at home as a precautionary measure. Supply chains of oncology drugs were disturbed. Considering the urgency and emergency of dermatological drugs, the supply of drugs is allowed to become normal. Thus, a negligible impact of the pandemic is observed on the market revenue.

Dermatology is a branch of medical science that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of various skin-related diseases, including hairs and nails. Dermatological drugs involve drugs that are used to treat skin diseases. The goal of dermatological drugs is to prevent skin disorders. Skin treatment includes laser therapy, topical & systemic medications, photodynamic therapy, radiotherapy, vitiligo surgery, and dermatological surgery. These dermatological drugs are also used for skincare to maintain skin features such as glow and healthiness.

This target market is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period, owing to the increasing geriatric population, rising awareness of skin problems, soaring people’s spending power, and huge reserves of dermatology drugs. In addition, the increasing prevalence of skin diseases is one of the biggest factors driving the growth of the dermatology drug market. Stress, eating habits, environmental and genetic factors, and aging are the most important factors contributing to the development of skin diseases in millions of people worldwide. According to the data published by the World Health Organization, skin diseases are one of the most common forms of health disorders, affecting nearly 900 million people worldwide at one time.

Despite efforts to manage dermatological skin conditions, there is a higher demand for the development of low-cost and therapeutically effective medicines. The growing prevalence of acne infections, atopic dermatitis (eczema), and other diseases in the population has prompted pharmaceutical companies to produce drugs for skin diseases. Companies are increasing their spending on research and development activities. For instance, in 2020, Alembic Pharmaceuticals’ received FDA approval for topical retinoid “Adapalene Gel USP 0.3%” for acne vulgaris in patients ages 12 years and older.

The initiatives by governments and private organizations to develop the pharmaceutical industry are driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the increasing number of approvals for dermatology products is propelling the growth of the market. However, the presence of acne treatment alternatives such as light or laser therapy, chemical peels, micro-needling, microdermabrasion, and lesion removal is expected to restrain the growth of the dermatology market during the forecast period.
