Global Dermal Fillers Market – Snapshot
Dermal fillers can be defined as soft tissue fillers injected into the skin for the restoration of smoother appearance and reduction of wrinkles and signs of aging. Dermal fillers are considered to be an ideal solution for plumping of the cheeks and lips, filling in creases and lines, and enhancing facial contours.
The global dermal fillers market is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. Expansion of the market can be attributed to an increase in the number of dermal filler procedures being performed, rise in the trend of anti-aging, significant private equity investments, strategic acquisitions by the market players, increase in geriatric population, and surge in preference for lip enhancement procedures. However, the dearth of skilled specialist dermatologists, lack of regulations governing the usage of dermal filler products, and an increasing circulation of counterfeit products are likely to hamper the market during the forecast period.
In terms of product, the global dermal fillers market has been segmented into biodegradable and non-biodegradable products. The biodegradable segment dominated the market in 2017. It is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This segment is likely to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Expansion of the segment can be attributed to the rising usage and demand for hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which account for a major share of the market. Additionally, the lesser number of side-effects of biodegradable dermal fillers, as compared to non-biodegradable fillers, propel the market.
