The global actinic keratosis market size is set to grow from USD 4,591.4 million in 2017 to USD 6,088.4 million by 2024. This huge plunge indicates towards a steadfast growth of the market in the forthcoming years. Actinic keratosis is a common skin disorder and has the potential to progress to non-melanoma skin cancers, thereby demand for its treatment remains considerably high. The advent of minimally invasive therapeutic procedures has improved the recovery time as well as reduced risk of complications. The disease is more prevalent among the aged population, prolonged UV radiation exposure is the primary cause of the disease. People with fairer skin tone are more susceptible to actinic keratosis. The increased prevalence of the disease in countries such as Australia, the U.S.A, and Canada is necessitating the requirement for more established treatment management strategies and guidelines. According to a study published in the Dermatology and Therapy Journal in 2015, the highest actinic keratosis prevalence rate was recoreded in Australia. The disease affected over 40% of the total population aged 40 years or above in the country within the same year.


Some of the popular actinic keratosis treatment modules include cryotherapy, topical medications, laser therapy, and photodynamic therapy. Meanwhile, the improving medical reimbursement landscape is ushering a greater patient response. A number of healthcare companies have started to provide medical coverage on selected therapeutics for actinic keratosis treatment. Such policies have augured well for both healthcare providers and patients. In addition, the improved caregiving structure in countries such as China and India has resulted in an uptick in demand for actinic keratosis treatment in these counties. Government initiatives to make healthcare services more affordable and accessible have also influenced the number of patients enrolling themselves for actinic keratosis treatment.  The presence of favorable reimbursement policies is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. However, high cost of procedures and risks associated with the treatment modules that are currently available are some of the bottlenecks that are yet to be addressed. The therapeutic cost of procedures such as laser skin surfacing is high.  Factors as such also have a negative impact on the overall growth of the market.
