Radiodermatitis Market By Product (Topical, Dressing, Oral) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

According to the American Society for Radiation Oncology's 2010 report, approximately 75% of oncology patients opt for radiation therapy. The primary aim of radiation therapy is to irradiate the tumor cells; however, the normal cells being exposed to the radiation therapy get damaged. Normal tissue cells are capable of self-repair, but repetitive damage reduces the reparation properties of normal cells. Factors that increase the risk and severity of skin reactions include high daily cumulative radiation doses, the type of beam utilized for irradiation, a large treatment field, treatment of areas with skin folds, and whether the radiation was given with chemotherapy.

The various products studied for this study include topical, oral, and dressing. Topical drugs are further classified as antibiotics, hydrophilic creams, corticosteroids, and others. Dressings are categorized as no-string barrier films, honey-impregnated gauze, hydrogel and hydrocolloid dressings, silicone-coated dressings, and others.

The radiodermatitis market is driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of cancer, with patients opting for radiation therapy and technological advancements in the drug formulation, such as hydrocolloids and hydrogels, which expedite healing with minimal pain. In addition, rising physician awareness regarding disease etiology and increasing online marketing with the affordable sale and purchase options will propel the market penetration of treatments. In 2016, the topical segment held the largest market share, chiefly due to factors such as corticosteroids, which are considered the gold standard for the treatment of radiodermatitis, and hydrophilic creams, which minimize the patient's discomfort by providing moisture to the dry desquamation skin area.

Dressings will be the fastest-growing segment throughout the forecast period of 2017–2025, primarily due to factors such as the rising prevalence of radiodermatitis and the wide range of dressings available as per the degree of skin complication due to radiation therapy. Hydrocolloid and hydrogel dressings are finding widespread use in the treatment of moist desquamation in order to promote a moist environment for reepithelization. The major players in the radiodermatitis market are Acelity, Alliqua Biomedical, BMG Pharma S.R.L., Convatec, Inc., Derma Sciences, Inc., Intermed Pharmaceuticals, Molnlycke Health Care AB, Smith & Nephew Plc., Stratpharma AG, and 3M Healthcare.
