Vitiligo Treatment Market Research, 2031

The global vitiligo treatment market size was valued at $410.5 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $625.8 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2022 to 2031. Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. Vitiligo occurs when pigment-producing cells die or stop functioning. Loss of skin color can affect any part of the body, including the mouth, hair, hands, neck, and eyes. It is caused by the lack of a pigment called melanin in the skin. Melanin is a pigment produced by skin cells known as melanocytes, and it gives color to the skin.

In vitiligo, there are not enough working melanocytes to produce enough melanin in your skin. This causes white patches to develop on your skin or hair. Vitiligo does not have serious side-effects to patient’s health, however it can result in physical complications, such as eye problems, hearing problems, and sunburn. Furthermore, people with vitiligo also tend to be more likely to have another autoimmune disease such as thyroid problems and some types of anemia. There is no permanent cure for vitiligo and it is a lifelong condition. It is not contagious in nature. The treatment options may include topical and systemic corticosteroid, calcineurin inhibitors, and tricyclic antidepressants.

For instance, according to Global Vitiligo Foundation in 2021, approximately 70 million people across the globe have vitiligo among them 20-30% of patients are children. The rising need for new treatment options for vitiligo conditions, with a motive to gain regulatory approval for vitiligo treatment is expected to contribute towards the growth of the market.

Moreover, rise in healthcare expenditure also provides vitiligo treatment market opportunity for the growth of the market.

Furthermore, increase in awareness about treatments for vitiligo propels the demand for vitiligo therapies. However, high cost of treatments and side-effects associated with medications negatively impact the vitiligo treatment market growth. For instance, prolonged use of topical corticosteroids can cause burning and stinging sensation.

Moreover, the global market expansion is being fueled by factors, such as rise in patients seeking treatments for vitiligo conditions, and rise in healthcare expenditure in developing countries such as India and China. Moreover, increase in adoption of different strategies such as product launch, collaboration, and partnership among the key players in the field of vitiligo therapies propel the growth of the global vitiligo treatment market.

For instance, according to the Commonwealth Fund, it was estimated that there was nearly 60% initial decrease in overall outpatient visits by May 2020 due to COVID-19. This was expected to negatively affect the demand for vitiligo treatment for surgeries. The outbreak of COVID-19 impacted the market, as hospital and healthcare services were significantly reduced due to social distancing measures taken by governments to stop COVID-19 spread.
