Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing awareness towards beauty and health

Hyaluronic acid is now widely used to prevent natural aging process, pollution damages and helps in improving the skin. Both in developed and developing countries, consumers are now more concerned towards healthy skin. Consumers are actively looking for solutions to deal with skin and aging problems. All these factors are contributing to popular use of hyaluronic acid.

Restraints: High cost for hyaluronic acid

One of the major restraints for hyaluronic acid is its high cost. Due to its high price, the hyaluronic acid products within cosmetics industry are finding it difficult to penetrate the middle-class segment of population. Specifically, the price sensitive population in Asia-Pacific region.

Opportunities: Rising chronic diseases

The issue of joint discomfort has become more prevalent due to the ageing population, particularly in Japan and China. Since hyaluronic acid is used to treat joints, this has boosted the demand for it. Additionally, the market for hyaluronic acid is widely established, particularly in Asia-Pacific. Furthermore,  upsurge in the expense of healthcare amenities can offer lucrative opportunities for hyaluronic acid market.

Challenges: Availability of alternatives

The presence of alternatives limits the hyaluronic acid market growth. The market's expansion for hyaluronic acid is being constrained by the popularity of skin care chemicals including ceramides, sqaulene, vitamin C, and others. It is also more efficient to use an emollient, or skin softener, such as a moisturiser supplemented with squalene and ceramides.

“Osteoarthritis (OA) was the largest application for hyaluronic acid market in 2021, in terms of value”

In 2021, the OA dominated the global hyaluronic acid market, in terms of value. Due to a growth in the number of elderly people and a growing desire for minimally invasive procedures, the market is predicted to expand. Nearly 90% of visco supplement prescriptions are meant to treat osteoarthritis of the knee. Both corticosteroids and hyaluronic acid injections can be used to treat osteoarthritis, according to the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), the U.S., however visco supplementation is marginally more successful than corticosteroids.

“Personal Care was the largest end-use industry for hyaluronic acid market in 2021, in terms of value”

Growing skin care product sales were a result of the expanding fashion sector, which in turn increased demand for hyaluronic acid, which will be the main driver of the market throughout the projection period. Additionally, since cities expanded quickly, there were more salons, which raised the demand for goods made with hyaluronic acid.

“North America was the largest market for hyaluronic acid in 2021, in terms of value.”

In 2021, North America led the global hyaluronic acid market, in terms of value. This is because a sizable portion of the population is elderly, who are more prone to diseases including osteoarthritis, vesicoureteral reflux, and cataracts. Furthermore, a key component in the big proportion of North America is the rising desire for minimally invasive aesthetic procedures.
