Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the fingernails or toenails, wherein the bed of the nail and the plate under the surface of the nail are affected. This infection makes the nail look white, opaque, thickened, and brittle. This condition is also prevalent in stratum corneum and hair. Onychomycosis infections are caused by members of the genera Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermophyton, which are known as dermatophytosis.
The global dermatophytic onychomycosis market is driven by rise in prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis, increase in geriatric population prone to diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, surge in number of R&D activities, and high demand for aesthetic appearing nails. However, side effects of the antifungal drugs and lack of awareness about dermatophytic onychomycosis impede the market growth. Furthermore, growth in healthcare infrastructure, rise in awareness about fungal nail infections in emerging nations, and development of innovative novel technology and combination therapies are expected to provide numerous opportunities for market expansion in the near future.
