Market is projected to witness the fastest growth in Asia-Pacific (APAC)
During the forecast period, the dermatology drugs market is forecasted to witness the fastest growth in APAC, with 9.6% CAGR. This growth can be attributed to the increasing disposable income of people in the region, which is leading to the high adoption of skincare products, including dermatological drugs. Moreover, the increase in the number of skin cancer cases in the region is contributing to the high demand for these drugs.
Furthermore, several market players, as part of their business strategy, are exploring the untapped market in developing economies such as China and India, which, in turn, is supporting the growth of the APAC dermatology drugs market.
