North America to Dominate Global Photosensitizer Drugs Market

  • Rise in prevalence of skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, increase in prevalence of cancers, and surge in the number of cosmetologists using PDT, are likely to propel the demand for photosensitizer drugs in the region
  • Acne is considered to be one of the most common skin conditions in the U.S., which affects over 50 million people every year. Its prevalence is known to be higher in women, affecting over 15% of the total adult women population.
  • Psoriasis is known to affect over 7.5 million people in the U.S. each year, with higher prevalence in population aged between 45 years and 64 years
  • This significant rise in the prevalence of skin diseases and economic burden of these diseases create demand for cost-effective modes of treatment. This, in turn, is boosting the growth of the global photosensitizer drugs market.
  • The photosensitizer drugs market in the U.K. is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace, owing to approval of drugs indicated for cancer, increase in R&D expenditure on oncology, and rapid expansion of the pharmaceutical industry in the country
  • Growing attention toward new anti-cancer therapies is also an important factor that is likely to drive the global market during the forecast period
  • In October 2019, Theralase Technologies Inc. was granted a European Patent for their anti-cancer light-activated photodynamic compounds (PDCs)
  • Rise in the burden of skin disorders, including acne, psoriasis, and presence of a large baby boomer population, which increases the risk of cancer in developing countries, such as India and China, are key factors augmenting the photosensitizer drugs market in Asia Pacific
