This patent landscape focused on acne treatments provides statistical analysis of the new patent applications published from May 2012 to June 2013.

Acne is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea, comedones, papules, pustules, nodules and possibly scarring. Acne affects 85 percent of adolescents, more than 10 percent of adults, and impacts people of all racial and ethnic groups. This translates to over 50 million people in the US, and over 150 million in the seven major markets. It is among the top five most economically burdensome skin diseases in the US, with total costs exceeding $3 billion per year. In spite of the large number of products in the market, acne remains the most prevalent skin disease in the world, demonstrating a high level of unmet clinical need.
The field of acne treatments has shown an intensive patenting activity since early 2000s.

Today, there are more than 11,000 patent families filed all over the world. The most active companies are L’OREAL, GALDERMA, PROCTER GAMBLE and MERCK. More than 800 new patent families were published between early May 2012 and June 2013. They were filed by over 400 patent applicants mainly located in China, Korea, USA and France. More than 1500 patent inventors are involved in acne, and about 1300 of them have filed only 1 new patent. The main patent applicants are L’ORÉAL, GALDERMA, ALLERGAN, SEA SUZHOU ELECTRONICS and ABBOTT which represent together almost 8% of the patents published from May 2012 to June 2013. Over 95% of assignees have less than 3 published patents. The academic organisms account for almost 12% of new patent filings and they are mainly located in US, China and Korea. The data set was segmented by type (Natural products and traditional medicine, Formulation, New Chemical Entity (NCE), Device, Use, Biologic, Process, Diagnostic, Combination).

Over 40% of new patent families published from May 2012 to June 2013 are related to natural products and traditional medicine. The main plant claimed in natural products is Chinese Angelica. Natural products were mainly filed by SEA SUZHOU ELECTRONICS, HANBUL COSMETICS and SEDERMA, and the patent filings remain dominated by Chinese companies. The patents claiming an invention related to Formulation and NCE represent 24% and 11% of new filings respectively. The patents dedicated to Formulation were mainly filed by ALLERGAN, GALDERMA and PROCTER & GAMBLE. The patents dedicated to NCE were mainly filed by GALDERMA, L’OREAL and the UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA. Devices represent 9% of new filings and about 40% of them claimed laser or light treatments. The leading applicants are MEDICON, EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT and ZHUOYUEJIN TECHNOLOGY. The majority of top applicants are mainly located in China and Korea.
