Press Release

Global Acne Medication Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.2% During 2024-2032, Driven by the Rising Prevalence of Inflammatory Acne

Global Acne Medication Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, 'Global Acne Medication Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032', the global market for acne medication stood at a value of around USD 10.07 billion in 2023. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% between 2024 and 2032 to attain USD 14.59 billion by 2032.

In 2020, the inflammatory acne segment, among other acne types, held a significant share in the market. The symptoms of inflammatory acne include redness, swelling, and deeply blocked pores filled with debris, germs, and dead skin cells. The bacteria Propionibacterium acnes are responsible for turning non-inflammatory acne into inflamed acne. Propionibacterium colonises the sebaceous follicle route, causing redness and swelling as a result of an immunological response. The need for acne medication is expected to skyrocket because of the increased discomfort and scarring associated with inflammatory acne.


There has been increased competition among the key industry players, such as Bausch Health Companies Inc. (NYSE: BHC) and Galderma S.A., to strengthen their position and enhance the global reach. In April 2021, Galderma announced the launch of Aklief, a medication used to treat acne, in South Korea. This medicine targets the retinoid receptor gamma in the retinoic acid receptor (RAR) in the skin, making acne treatment more efficient and effective. This strategic decision will help the corporation develop its operations in South Korea. Such developments by the leading players are expected to significantly contribute to the market growth in the coming years.
