DUBLIN, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "U.S. Scar Treatment Market Size, Share, Development, Growth and Demand Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.
The U.S. scar treatment market accounted for $4,757.8 million revenue in 2014, and it is expected to grow with a CAGR of 10.2% during 2015-2020.
The products segment dominated the U.S. market in 2014 with about 59.4% share; whereas, among the various therapies, the dermabrasion segment accounted for the highest share of 25.6% in the U.S. scar treatment market in the same year. The U.S. scar treatment market is witnessing high growth rate due to growing cases of skin problems leading to scar formation, availability of technologically advanced products that have the capability to fade away the scars, and increasing appearance consciousness among consumers. Also, the increasing expenditure on personal care is further propelling the growth of the market.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 85% of the U.S. population suffers from acne at some phase of their life, which eventually leads to scar formation later. Various other skin problems, such as burns, post-surgical marks, and stretch marks, due to pregnancy or changes in body weight also lead to scar formation. These skin problems can lead to the formation of scars, which do not fade away easily. They need to be treated using scar treatment products and surgical treatments for their removal.
Laser treatments and minimally-invasive surgical treatments are more advanced treatments than topical ointments, which help to improve the appearance of scars within few hours to few days. The availability of various products, such as creams, oils, gels and sprays over the counter for treating scar leads to the growth of the market. These products further help in reducing redness, pain, bumps, and itching caused by scars, and can be applied without medical supervision, which is driving the growth of the U.S. scar treatment market.
