The COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacted on various sectors like automobiles, education, transportation, electrical & electronics, food& beverages, healthcare, and many more. Majorly it is clear that the healthcare sector is drastically impacted as it acts as a central part of this unprecedented pandemic challenge. This pandemic also severely impacted the botulinum toxin market globally by the reduction of demand in both therapeutic and aesthetic applications. The stringent regulations imposed by the government like lockdowns, supply chain disruptions, and elective procedures ban are the major factors to decline the demand for botulinum toxin products.

A few therapeutic indications were stopped treatment which leads to accessing emergency departments have been treated with this protein. Thus the toxin for the treatment of the critical conditions has continued. In the second quarter of the financial year, the major key players are reporting that there was a decline in the revenue from the neurotoxin preparations. One of the strong key players, Allergan reported a decline in revenue of 43.1% and 22.3% compared to the previous year’s revenue for Botox cosmetic and botox therapeutic. Due to the closure of the treatments center, there is a decline in the revenue of botulinum toxin products.

Over the past decade, people are choosing easy and painless methods to look young and healthy without the problem of invasive cosmetic surgery. Due to this reason, the demand for cosmetic surgeries and non-invasive procedures is increasing which is propelling the growth of the botulinum toxin treatment.

The surge in demand for facial aesthetics is one of the major factors that drive market growth. The increasing cases of cervical dystonia, spasticity, and chronic migraine is boosting the botulinum toxin market growth. Rising affordability and amendment in reimbursement policies to improve the benefits of botulinum injections are escalating the growth of the spasticity treatment market.


The botox is very expensive which is restraining the market growth. Due to various therapeutic and medical aesthetic applications of botulinum toxin, there is a chance of affecting various side effects by using this protein is hindering the growth of the botulinum toxin structure.


The growing product launches and approvals by the prominent key players are predicted to accelerate the growth of botulinum toxin therapy in the coming years.
