Market Dynamics


Drivers


  • Increasing number of obese cases across the globe


Obesity leads to cellulite by increasing the fat volume trapped within the irregular-sized fat lobules. Fat cells (adipocytes) grow and bulge with fat in obese people; obesity is the leading cause to develop cellulite. As per WHO, the population with obesity has tripled since 1975. in 2020, the association recorded 39 million children with obesity were under the age of five. Additionally, according to Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2018, obesity was found to be prevalent in 40.0 % of adults aged 20 to 39, 44.8 % of adults aged 40 to 59, and 42.8 % of adults aged 60 and older in the US. Furthermore, the young population ranging between 18 to 25 is prone to cellulite deposition due to the high intake of energy-dense food rich in fat and sugars. Likewise, people aged around 25-35 are keen on career improvement, so consumption of unhealthy food, sitting for long working hours, and minimal physical activities are depositing the fat and tissues in the lower region of the body. Such a lifestyle is driving the cellulite treatment for fat and tissue depositions and is projected to boost the market demand during the forecast period.


  • Rising demand for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures

  • Growing medical tourism industry


Restraints


  • Concerns pertaining to bruising and swelling


Mild bruising, redness, and swelling in the treatment area have been observed in patients. The treatment method causes discomfort to the patients that can be treated with deep massage. The patient must undergo cellulite treatment on a regular basis to remove the fatty layer and retain the desired outcomes. Moreover, the lack of regulations in cosmetic procedures results in huge complications due to improper cosmetic procedures. Thus, complications related to cosmetic procedures and a lack of regulations in cosmetic procedures are anticipated to restrain the growth of the market.



  • Shortage of trained and experienced dermatologist/ plastic surgeon


Opportunity


  • Growing adoption of cosmetic procedures in emerging economies


There has been an increase in the adoption of cosmetic procedures in emerging economies such as laser treatment, subcision, vacuum-assisted precise tissue release, non-surgical fat reduction, carboxytherapy, chemical peel, radiofrequency, laser-assisted liposuction, ultrasound, and others. This can be credited to the increasing popularity of cosmetic procedures and increasing disposable income. Moreover, improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies further drives the growth of the market. Furthermore, the increasing number of cosmetic surgeons in the emerging economies is further anticipated to provide significant growth opportunities. For instance, according to the ISAPS, the list of top 30 countries ranked by the estimated number of plastic surgeons contains several emerging countries, including India, Argentina, Venezuela, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, and more.

Value Chain Analysis


The global cellulite treatment market is growing steadily and is expected to continue growing at the same rate soon. This is due to the growing contribution of existing players to make the product available to the public and the rising demand for aesthetic and cosmetic procedures coupled with the rising investments in cosmetic procedures research is helping manufacturers of intermediate goods to access market entry. The value chain analysis for the cellulite treatment market comprises four major components: research and product development, manufacturing, distribution & sales, and post-sales monitoring.


Segment Overview:


By Treatment Procedure


  • Non-Invasive


Non-invasive treatment procedure doesn't involve the introduction of instruments into the body. In this procedure, the healthy tissue is not destroyed, and there is no contact with the internal body cavity or mucosa. A trained and licensed aesthetician can easily and safely perform Non-invasive treatment. The procedure uses energy-based technologies such as radiofrequency, infrared light, electromagnetic fields, cryo treatment, and radial impulse therapy, among others. A few FDA-approved non-invasive treatments include VelaShape, Venus Freeze, ThermiSmooth Body, and Zimmer Z Wave.



  • Minimally Invasive


Minimally invasive cellulite treatment is a surgical procedure that is carried out through minute incisions. Laser therapy is one of the popular minimally invasive cellulite treatments. Additionally, other minimally invasive cellulite treatment procedures include liposuction technique and micro-blading technique. Moreover, in laser-based cellulite treatment, a small tube is inserted through the minimal incision, and laser energy is used to melt the fat beneath the skin minimizing the tension in the fibrous bands that further offer the sculpted shape in the treated areas.



  • Topical


Topical cellulite treatment involves the application of creams, lotions, gels, foams, and ointments on the affected area. These products temporarily reduce the visibility of cellulite. In addition, the creams tighten the cellulite-affected skin making them firmer and smoother. Moreover, caffeine is used in topical creams due to its diuretic property. Caffeine advances the blood flow in the applied area and manipulates the fat's water content, which further contours the shape of the affected area.


By Cellulite Type



  • Soft Cellulite


These types of cellulite are found in fat accumulated areas such as buttocks, hips, stomach, arms, and legs. The skin with soft cellulite is saggy and isn't painful to touch. In addition, this type of cellulite is very gelatinous and undulating. Moreover, the soft cellulite is complemented with spider veins which show movement when a person moves. Soft cellulite is likely to increase with age or mass gain. Furthermore, it is often found in the female population aging in between 30 to 40. However, soft cellulite can be treated by adopting a healthy lifestyle, rigorous diet, and exercise. Other treatment for soft cellulite includes cream application, radiofrequency treatments and electro-stimulation treatment among others.



  • Hard Cellulite


This type of cellulite appears tight, grainy like orange peel. Additionally, hard cellulite is found in the upper thighs and around the hips, and the skin appearance doesn't get distorted after any physical activities such as walking and moving. Additionally, this cellulite is also found back and inside of the knees. It is observed in early adolescence and is sensitive and painful to touch. These types of cellulite require early treatment, or they may never be eliminated. However, mesotherapy, endermologie, and other beauty treatments are intended to lift and isolate cellulite from the muscle. Furthermore, excision-based minimally invasive treatments offer better actions that try to get rid of cellulite.



  • Edematous Cellulite


This type of cellulite is found in the lower region of the legs and results in the lower limbs' irregular shape, making it more columnar. Edematous cellulite is semi-solid in texture and is pasty that is painful when touched and are tender among the population that follows a sedentary lifestyle. It is found among the population aged around 20 to 30. Moreover, this type of cellulite is treated by fluid retention and correcting blood circulation problems. Additionally, exercises such as swimming, cycling, and walking are suggested. Likewise, food with fluid retention characteristics should be avoided, and lymphatic drainage massage and herbal teas are also beneficial for cellulite reduction.
