Scar is a mark on the skin which is formed due to infection, injury, surgery, inflammation of tissue, burns, and acne. Scars can impact an individual’s mental and physical well-being, resulting in poor self esteem, altered social interactions, depression, and embarrassment. Scars can be of various sizes, shapes, and colors, depending on the age of scar, site of scar, and family history. Formation of scars is unpredictable and varies from person to person. Certain areas of the body such as the chest, back, ear lobes, and the shoulder are more at risk of scarring as compared to rest of the body. Scars on knees and shoulders can appear stretched or widened due to the healing process which occurs over movable joints.

North America is the largest market for scar treatment due to high disposable income in the country, which results in higher spending on personal care. The scar treatment market in Asia is expected to show high growth rates over the following five years. China and India are expected to be the fastest growing scar treatment markets in Asia. Some of the key driving forces for the scar treatment market in emerging markets are rise in disposable income, rising population, increasing prevalence of skin-related problems, growing focus on personal well being, and improving healthcare facilities in the region.

Prevalence of skin problems such as photoaging is increasing due to excessive exposure to pollution and UV radiation, resulting in sunburns, and reduced skin elasticity. These conditions, without proper and timely treatment, can lead to formation of scars. Moreover, awareness about treating scars is increasing globally, which, in turn, is leading to rising spending on such treatments. Increasing appearance consciousness among consumers and technological advancements in scar treatment are some of the other factors driving growth of the market. However, high costs and risk of side effects of scar treatment are the factors inhibiting growth of the market.
