Acne Drugs - Worldwide Market Analysis & Forecasts 2018-2025: Valeant Projected to Lead the Market in 2025 Due to Higher Adoption of Retin-A Micro - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 24, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 24, 2018--The “Acne Drugs Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Type, By Therapeutic Class (Retinoid, Antibiotic, Combination), By Mode of Administration (Injectable, Topical, Oral), And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global acne drugs market size is expected to reach USD 5.9 billion by 2025, registering a 4.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

Several factors such as emergence of biologics, unhealthy lifestyle, and rising disease incidence are anticipated to drive the market.

Retinoids and antibiotics remain the mainstays of acne treatment. Retinoids led the therapeutic classes in 2017, and it is expected to continue this trend through 2025. The therapeutic landscape is witnessing a shift toward combination treatment due to higher efficacy, convenient dosing, and fewer adverse effects.

By mode of administration, topical drugs currently dominate the market. Severe cases see the use of systemic medications such as oral antibiotics, hormonal agents, or other drugs. However, emergence of biologics (Gevokizumab and RA-18C3) will fuel the injectable route of administration. Biologics offer improved clinical advantage over conventional topical treatments since they target inflammatory mechanisms with disease modifying ability.

Discontinuation or termination of key pipeline candidates on account of unsuccessful clinical trials is a major restraint this market faces. Upon launch, Olumacostat glasaretil (Dermira; topical lipid synthesis inhibitor) was expected to be the first topical anti-acne drug with isotretinoin-like results without significant side effects. However, the drug failed to meet clinical endpoints, leading to discontinuation in March 2018. Similarly, SNA-001 (Sienna; silver nanoparticles solution) was deemed unsuccessful in two key trials wherein it was tested in conjunction with 810nm and 1064nm lasers in July 2018. Thesan withdrew TSN2898 from Phase II trials due to drug unavailability. Xenon discontinued development of XEN801 after the drug failed Phase II clinical trials.

Despite being one of the most common dermatological diseases in the world, innovation in acne treatment has been rather limited over the past decade. Drug companies are currently exploring novel treatment approaches including stearoyl CoA desaturase inhibition, melanocortin receptor antagonism, and anti-IL-1 monoclonal antibodies. Impending launch of late-stage pipeline products indicate a promising future for the global acne drugs market.

By type, inflammatory acne captured more than 50.0% of the market in 2017. Comedonal acne were ranked second-largest, among other types On the basis of therapeutic class, retinoids led the market in 2017, followed by antibiotics. This trend is likely to continue through 2025 The treatment paradigm is shifting toward combination therapies and biologics.
