Report overview @
Key Market Dynamics
The prime drivers for the market include availability of attractive reimbursement facilities in
developed markets and rising incidences of atrophic scars (primarily acne) in developing markets,
primarily due to rapidly changing food habits and lifestyles. Furthermore, growing adoption of
combination therapeutics is another factor expected to drive demand for various combinations of
scar treatment product and treatments over the forecast period. Currently, there are no formalized
guidelines for treatment of scars. All treatments are done on a best-effort basis, guided mostly
through word-of-mouth by expert clinicians and surgeons. However, efforts are underway to
formalize treatment guidelines at least for common scars. In this regard, under the U.K.
government’s cosmetic intervention guidelines, patient and patient parties need access to
independent and evidence-based information to form their decisions. Many of these scar treatment
and aesthetic beautification procedures are considered similar to ‘consumer goods’ by both the
purchaser and provider. A change in this perspective could help boost manufacturers and service
provider’s potential revenue base.

Barriers to the market include fragmented documented clinical evidences for popular topical
products such as onion extract gels (containing silicone). This hampers the product uptake by the
educated section of the patient base in both developed and developing countries. Other barriers
include psychological issues such as fear of side-effects and consideration of scar treatment as a
non-necessary expenditure item in the overall consumption basket. Even some of the well-known
regulatory agencies do not accept scar treatments as medically necessary as they mostly are not lifechanging in nature.
