Geographic Tongue Market Scenario

The Geographic Tongue Market is expected to reach USD 496.3 Million by 2030 at 10.6% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.Geographic tongue or migratory glossitis is a benign condition which is characterized by the inflammation of the tongue. Under normal conditions the tongue is covered by a layer of small bumps-papillae, which tend to be missing in this medical condition. The symptoms for geographic tongue are inclusive of general discomfort of the tongue or mouth and soreness or a burning sensation of the tongue, which is often worsened by spicy or acidic foods. The susceptibility of geographic tongue is high in patients with psoriasis. Moreover, it is estimated that the geriatric population is more frequently diagnosed for the same condition. Thus, the increasing prevalence of the psoriasis along with the growing geriatric population are the major drivers for the market growth. According to the International Federation of Psoriasis in 2016, approximately 3% of the world’s population suffer from psoriasis accounting to more than 125 million people across the globe. According to the World Health Organization the global geriatric population is growing and is estimated to reach a 1.5 billion by 2050 from 524 million in 2010. Additionally, growing oral healthcare expenditures are estimated to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.
