Acne Medication Market by Therapeutic Class (Retinoids, Antibiotics, Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, and Others), Formulation (Topical Medications and Oral Medications), Type (Prescription Medicines and Over-The-Counter Medicines), Acne Type (Non-Inflammatory Acne and Inflammatory Acne), and Distribution Channel (Grocery Stores, Pharmacies & Drug Stores, and e-Commerce) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2025

Acne or acne vulgaris is a skin disease caused due to clogging of hair follicles with dead skin cells and oil from skin cells. This disease is characterized with pimples, blackheads, oily skin, and scarring. There are two types of acne-non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne, where the latter takes longer duration to heal and can cause permanent effects on the skin. Acne medications are either applied directly, which are present in formulations, or taken in the form of oral pills. These medications work by reducing inflammation and oil production. They also fight with bacteria finally preventing scarring. The common acne medications include retinoids, antibiotics, isotretinoin, benzoyl peroxide, and others.

The global acne medication market was valued at $8,017 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $10,929 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2018 to 2025. Increase in prevalence of acne diseases is the major factor that contributes toward the growth of the acne medication market. Moreover, other factors that fuel the market growth include unhealthy urban lifestyle, and presence of robust acne medications in pipeline. However, side-effects associated with the use of acne medications and presence of alternative treatment impede the market growth. Conversely, development of effective medications with lesser side effects and high market potential in untapped emerging economies are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market growth.

The global acne medication market is segmented into therapeutic class, formulation, type, acne type, distribution channel, and region. Based on therapeutic class, the market is divided into retinoids, antibiotics, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and others. The retinoids segment is further classified into topical retinoid & combination retinoid and oral retinoid (isotretinoin). The antibiotics segment is further sub-segmented into topical antibiotics & combination antibiotics and oral antibiotics. Based on the formulation, the market is bifurcated into topical medication and oral medication.
