Actinic Keratosis Treatment Market Forecast : Key Factors Driving Rapid Growth towards $1,558 Million by 2026

The global Actinic keratosis treatment market was valued at $6.26 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $10.54 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2028.

The Actinic keratosis (AK) treatment market refers to the global market for products and therapies used to treat AK, a precancerous skin condition that can develop into squamous cell carcinoma if left untreated. The market includes both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) products.

The key factors driving the growth of the market include the increasing prevalence of actinic keratosis, the growing geriatric population, and the rising awareness about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of AK. In addition, the availability of new and advanced therapies such as photodynamic therapy, topical immunomodulators, and cryotherapy is also driving market growth.

The market is segmented by treatment type, which includes topical medications, surgical procedures, and photodynamic therapy. The topical medications segment is further sub-segmented into nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), imiquimod, and 5-fluorouracil. The surgical procedures segment includes curettage and electrodessication, excisional surgery, and cryotherapy.

Geographically, North America dominates the actinic keratosis treatment market due to the high prevalence of AK in the region, increasing healthcare expenditure, and the presence of major market players. Europe is the second-largest market, while the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the increasing awareness about AK and the growing geriatric population.

Increase in incidence of actinic keratosis, presence of potential drugs in pipeline, and rise in government expenditure on healthcare fuel the growth of the global actinic keratosis treatment market. On the other hand, availability of alternative treatment options impedes the growth to some extent. However, development in emerging markets is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the near future.

The fluorouracil segment contributed to nearly two-fifths of the global actinic keratosis treatment market share in 2018, and is expected to rule the roost by 2026. Rise in consumption of fluorouracil, ease of availability, use of fluorouracil as first line treatment, and its cost efficiency drive the growth of the segment. Simultaneously, the imiquimod segment would grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.2% during 2019-2026. Rise in patient awareness toward actinic keratosis treatment and availability of imiquimod formulation boost the growth of the segment.

The prescription segment held the largest share in 2018, garnering more than four-fifths of the global actinic keratosis treatment market. The same segment would also register the fastest CAGR of 4.3% throughout the forecast period. This is due to preferable use of prescription drugs such as fluorouracil, ingenol mebutate, and imiquimod for treatment of actinic keratosis.

North America accounted for nearly half of the global actinic keratosis treatment market revenue in 2018, and is projected to maintain the lionโ€™s share by the end of 2026. Development of actinic keratosis treatment therapeutics, increased adoption of actinic keratosis treatment drugs, and higher healthcare awareness fuel the market growth. The region across Asia-Pacific, on the other hand, would cite the fastest CAGR of 6.3% during the estimated period. This is attributed to increase in disposable income of people, growth in awareness about actinic keratosis treatment products, and rise in prevalence of the disease in southern areas, such as Australia and New Zealand.
