Global Botulinum Toxin Market Research (MRFR Insights)

The botulinum toxin market size is projected to reach USD 6.5 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 11.80% from 2022 to 2030. The factor that drives the market of botulinum toxin is the rising demand for minimally invasive or non-invasive surgeries in cosmetology, along with the increasing applications in cosmetics surgeries and growing R&D initiatives. Furthermore, with the growing cases of cluster headaches and stress-triggered migraine, botulinum toxin injection techniques and botox treatment growth have significantly impacted botulinum toxin injection techniques.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the  market. Several non-emergency surgical and treatment producers and non-invasive procedures were postponed due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in 2020. These surgeries fall under elective surgical procedures and are not considered essential lifesaving surgeries. For instance, according to the data issued by the America Society of Plastic Surgeons report, about a 13% drop was observed in botulinum toxin procedures in 2020. As a result of procedural deferral, several companies witnessed a drop in the sales of botulinum products in 2020, thereby negatively impacting the market growth.

The market trends include increased demand for cosmetic non-invasive surgical procedures, new product establishments, growing affordability, and amendments in reimbursement policies to protect the market. Major players in this market are concentrating on continuous innovation and boosting their product portfolio for better aesthetics and enhanced patient therapeutic outcomes. For instance, in February 2021, AbbVie received FDA approval for Botox to treat detrusor overactivity related to a neurological condition in certain pediatric patients of 5 years and older.
