Market Insights:

The key factor responsible for the development of actinic keratosis is advancing age with a high occurrence rate in men as against women. In the base year 2016, destructive treatment, especially cryosurgery of the treatment segment held the largest market share, because of its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Topical medication is very effective as a prolonged treatment regimen but lack of patient compliance hinders the growth of this segment. Photodynamic therapy consisting of 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), methyl aminolevulinate (MAL), will register faster growth due to the growing demand for non-invasive treatment and respective aesthetic appeal. The actinic keratosis market is currently dominated by North America due to the increasing prevalence of actinic keratosis cases, favorable reimbursement scenarios and developed healthcare infrastructure. The Asia Pacific will be the fastest-growing market due to growing public awareness and rapid development in the healthcare infrastructure.

Market Segment Insights:
