Global Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market – Drivers

Increasing prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis is a major factor boosting the growth of the global dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market over the forecast period. For instance, the study named, ‘Dermatophytosis: Prevalence of Dermatophytes and Non-Dermatophyte Fungi from Patients Attending Arsho Advanced Medical Laboratory, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’ published in the journal Dermatology Research and Practice in October 2018, demonstrated that the rate of prevalence of dermatophytosis was 66.98% in Ethiopia.

Moreover, the increasing prevalence of psoriasis is also expected to boost the global market growth. For instance, the study, ‘The prevalence and etiological factors of onychomycosis in psoriatic patients’, published in the journal Advances in Dermatology and Allergology in April 2018, demonstrated a relatively high prevalence of onychomycosis in patients with psoriasis.

The North America region held a dominant position in the global dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market in 2018, accounting for around 45.8% share, in terms of value, in the year 2027.

Global Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market – Restraints

Antifungal drugs used in the treatment of dermatophytic onychomycosis have certain side effects, such as headache, dizziness, nausea, and stomach ache. Moreover, the topical agents also cause rash and itchiness in the surrounding skin. These side effects are expected to hamper the growth of the global dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market.

Moreover, the availability of alternative treatment options, such as Vicks Vapor, Listerine, and tea tree oil, for the treatment of nail infections, is expected to further restrain the global market expansion.
