Hyaluronic Acid Market Outlook - 2021–2030

The hyaluronic acid market size was valued at $1.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $2.1 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2021 to 2030.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body cells. Hyaluronic acid is found in the highest concentration in the eye and joint fluids. In the joints and other tissues, it acts as a cushion and lubricant. Its moisturizing properties make it popular in cosmetics and the pharmaceutical business. It's also utilized in surgeries. It is also injected directly into the body to give the skin hydration and plumpness. For cataract surgery, an eye surgeon injects hyaluronic acid into the eye. Mouth sores can also be treated with hyaluronic acid gel and rinse.


The hyaluronic acid market is driven by factors such as increase in demand for hyaluronic based products such as moisturizer, dermal fillers, shampoo and others. In addition, the presence of elderly people, especially in Japan and China, has increased the problem of joint pain. This has increased the demand for hyaluronic acid as it is used for joint treatment. Furthermore, the hyaluronic acid market is well established especially in Asia-Pacific. However, the market is hindered by presence of alternative. The acceptance of ceramides, sqaulene, vitamin C and others skin care ingredients is becoming a restraint for the growth of the hyaluronic acid market. Utilizing an emollient, or a skin softener, like a moisturizer enhanced with squalene and ceramides, is also more effective. In addition, the stringent regulation, especially for skin and hair products, is also one of the challenging factors for the market. On the contrary, the rising consumer base in emerging economies is expected to offer lucrative opportunity during the forecast period.
