                                              Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Alopecia Market

The global alopecia market size was valued at USD 2.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period. One of the key factors contributing to revenue growth is increasing prevalence of alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia. Rise in incidence of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), cancer, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, acute stress disorder, hypopituitarism, lupus, and other chronic disorders is also anticipated to drive the market.
Lifestyle changes such as excessive consumption of alcohol, tobacco, and associated products, and increasing stress levels are considered potent triggers for alopecia. Although the exact causative factors remain unknown, several cases are linked to genetic factors. In addition, increasing disposable incomes and growing emphasis on aesthetic appearances are also expected to contribute to the demand for alopecia treatment.
Hormonal imbalance and aging contribute to rising cases of hair loss. Overall rise in geriatric population and growing consumer awareness regarding treatment options are also projected to positively influence the global market in the forthcoming years.
Product development of novel therapeutic options is expected to drive the market over the course of the forecast period. Introduction of rapidly acting JAK inhibitors, development of methods to stimulate hair growth using human pluripotent stem cells, and PRP treatment are other factors driving the market.

Key Players, Recent Developments & Regional Insights: Global Alopecia Market

The alopecia market has been segmented on the basis of disease type into areata, cicatricial, traction, totalis, universalis, androgenetic, and others. Alopecia areata led the market in 2018, capturing more than 30% of the revenue. The growth is driven by high prevalence of the disease and rise in consumer awareness. This condition is most common in people with autoimmune diseases such as hyperthyroidism, diabetes, and Down’s syndrome. Alopecia totalis and universalis are advanced stages of alopecia areata.

Various treatment options, such as licensed topical treatments, oral treatments such as finasteride and minoxidil, and surgical treatments such as hair transplantation and replacement are available for treating androgenetic alopecia.

The dermatology clinics segment dominated the alopecia market by end use in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. Worldwide increase in the number of hair restoration and transplantation surgeries and high usage of prescription drugs also contribute to the large share of the dermatology clinics segment.
