Worldwide Botulinum Toxin Industry to 2026 - Increasing Demand for Aesthetic Procedures is Driving Growth

·7 min read

Dublin, Oct. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Botulinum Toxin Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Botulinum Toxin Market was valued at USD 3,601.5 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 7,854.9 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 9.94% during the forecast period.

The cosmetic and aesthetic fillers manufacturers had to shut down the production and supply units due to the lockdown, that was imposed in the beginning of COVID-19 outbreak, globally. According to a survey by Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance, conducted in March 2020, with 1,360 cosmetic practitioners in the United Kingdom to assess the impact of the pandemic on cosmetic procedures, stated that 99.78% of practitioners revealed that their practice had been affected during the current pandemic. Additionally, consumers are also looking for online cosmetic home treatments. Thus, the cosmetic brands can exploit this opportunity to renovate their online offerings, to offer e-consultation services, and invest in the right technology, such as chatbots and augmented/virtual reality, as more consumers seek cosmetic advice from the comfort of their home during the pandemic, which reduces the risk of being infected. Thus, COVID-19 has highly impacted the botulinum toxin market worldwide. However, the situation is gradually improving.

The growth of the global botulinum toxin market is currently being driven by various factors. These include the increasing demand for aesthetic procedures, growing research and development initiatives to expand the therapeutic applications of botulinum toxin, and growing patient preference for non-invasive or minimally treatments, coupled with novel products' development. For instance, as per a 2019 report by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, there were 6,271,488 botulinum toxin procedures done globally, constituting 46.1% of the total non-invasive procedures. The top non-surgical procedure performed among women in 2019 was botulinum toxin, which accounted for over 5,429,754 procedures. Nearly 841,735 men underwent botulinum procedures.

The increasing quality of care improved professional services, and the availability of minimally invasive surgeries by highly qualified aesthetic surgeons have contributed to the growth of procedural volume. Furthermore, technological advancements, the introduction of cost-effective aesthetic products, the aging population, and rising incidence of aesthetic problems, such as crow's foot and lateral canthal lines are also boosting the growth of the botulinum toxin market globally. For instance, in January 2019, in South Korea, Huons Co. Ltd launched botulinum toxin product Liztox, designed specifically to treat forehead wrinkles.In the present scenario, patients are demanding a wide range of products to treat more and more facial areas, which is increasing the average amount of time and money spent on each patient in clinics globally. Hence, due to the increasing demand and urge to look attractive, these procedures are largely performed by celebrities and their fans, owing to huge media coverage, making it more socially acceptable. However, the side effects of available products, lack of reimbursement policies supporting cosmetic procedures, and the high cost of the products can limit the adoption rate of botulinum toxin during the forecast period.
