Notwithstanding its considerable patient pool across the US and 5EU acne market has remained stagnant over the past few decades, with no new drugs coming into the arena. The market has seen a shift toward reformulations of existing products and/or fixed-dose combination (FDC) therapies. Examples of the latter comprise combination products offered by the leading dermatology companies, such as Galderma’s Epiduo, Astellas’ Zineryt, and GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) Duac.

Studies have shown that it is possible to enhance compliance, and consequently efficiency, by the synergistic combination of two active ingredients. Meantime, new formulations include liposomes, microsponges, aerosol foams, subantimicrobial-dose doxycycline, nanoemulsions and extended-release minocycline. Reformulations are a low-risk strategy for the big pharma industry players, in comparison with placing funds into new molecular substances for acne. Furthermore, during the oncoming decade, other dermatology players are expected to target the previously untapped paediatric market, as acne has become more prevalent in children younger than 12 years old than it once was, potentially owing to the decreasing age of puberty onset.

Across the six major pharma markets, the pharmacological therapy sales for acne are forecast to reach grow from USD 2.3 billion in 2012 to more than USD 2.8 billion by 2018-end, posting a CAGR of around 4%.
