The global scar treatment market to grow at a CAGR of 10.43% during the period 2016-2020.
Global Scar Treatment Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of scar treatment products and therapeutic procedures.
A scar is a patch of fibrous tissue (containing a protein called collagen) that is formed over a wound as a consequence of the body's natural healing process. Scars are classified into keloid scars, contracture scars, hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars based on the composition of collagen and appearance. Many non-invasive methods including chemical and physical treatment and invasive methods such as surgery are used to treat different types of scars.
The increased use of silicone-based products for the prevention and treatment of scars is one of the prominent trends emerging in the market. Many silicone-based products such as ointments, creams, and gels are available for OTC sale. Silicone sheets have gained popularity for scar treatment and to protect the wound from moisture and infection.
According to the report, the growing importance of personal grooming and beauty is one of the prime drivers for the market growth. Nowadays, individuals are becoming increasingly aware of their personal appearance and aesthetic appeal. Changes in lifestyle, improved standards of living, and increased per capita income in emerging economies are compelling consumers to opt for scar treatment products and services.
Further, the report states that scar treatment products may contain compounds that can cause side effects and may not be compatible with different skin types. The market is further plagued by the inability of regional and smaller vendors to meet the expectations of customers in terms of safety standards.
