Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market Trends



  • Rising prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis is driving the market growth


The prevalence of onychomycosis is one of the key factors driving the market's growth. Onychomycosis infections of the toenails occur far more frequently than those of the fingernails. The increased prevalence of dermatophyte-caused nail fungal infections and a sharp increase in prescriptions are expected to drive the market. According to a press release from Moberg Pharma AB, 35–40 million Americans have nail fungus, making up around 10% of the global population. This is likely to increase demand for the market for treating dermatophytic onychomycosis during the anticipated period. Diabetes is becoming more common, which is another factor behind the growth in dermatophytic infections.  The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 463 million people worldwide would have diabetes in 2019, which will help the industry grow.


Pharmaceutical companies have increased their R&D spending significantly in order to discover novel therapies as a result of the increasing prevalence and lack of viable treatments. Many of the topical medications that are now on the market cannot reach the depths of the nail bed, making it impossible to entirely heal the infection. As a result, a lot of businesses are trying hard to find compounds that penetrate the nails deeper in an effort to overcome this difficulty. One biotech company, Hexima, is undertaking a phase I/lla clinical research on HXP124, a plant defensin anti-fungal molecule for the treatment of dermatophytic onychomycosis. Comparing the penetration rates of HXP124 to Kerydin and Jublia, it has been found to be higher. The market for medications to treat dermatophytic onychomycosis is expected to gain significantly from increased research funding and the introduction of promising therapeutic candidates. Thus, driving the Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment market revenue.


Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market Segment Insights


Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Product Type Insights


The market segments of Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment, based on product type includes tablets and nail paints. It is anticipated that the nail paints category will dominate the market for the entire projection period. The market is anticipated to grow as topical nail lacquers become more commonplace when compared to oral anti-fungal medications and Jublia usage rises. However, the COVID-19 pandemic's influence on Clenafin sales, particularly in Japan, has hurt the nail paints segment's revenue. Due to increased government initiatives to transition to generic medications, it is projected that the tablet market would expand.


Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Route of Administration Insights


The Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market segmentation, based on route of administration, includes oral and topical. In 2022, the topical segment accounted for the largest share of the market. Due to the negative side effects of oral medications, such as liver damage, many podiatrists and dermatologists prefer to recommend topical treatments instead. This is likely to accelerate the growth of the tablets market, along with more research into the creation of topical medications. As opposed to topical solutions, oral drugs have better cure rates due to greater penetration and greater efficacy, which is the main driver of the segment's expansion throughout the forecast period.


Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Type Insights


The market segmentation of dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment, based on type, includes prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC). Due in large part to the steady move toward nail paints and rising sales of ciclopirox for the treatment of dermatophytic onychomycosis, the over-the-counter (OTC) segment dominated the market. The three main drivers of the growth of the prescription category are favorable health reimbursement, an increase in podiatrists, and the prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis. The government's decision to close non-emergency OPDs in hospitals and the decline in hospital visits have both had an adverse effect on the prescription segment.

The Europe Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment market is the second largest region. The demand for dermatophytic onychomycosis therapy is anticipated to rise in Europe as a result of the increased incidence of onychomycosis, attractive health reimbursement policies, and improved distribution of OTC pharmaceuticals through collaborations with retail pharmacies like Walmart, Walgreens, and others.
