The global actinic keratosis treatment market was valued at $1,117 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $1,558 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.2% from 2019 to 2026.

Actinic keratosis (AK) is the most common precancer that forms on skin damaged by chronic exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or indoor tanning characterized by rough, scaly patch on skin. It is most commonly found on face, lips, ears, back of your hands, forearms, scalp, or neck. Different types of treatment options available for the treatment of actinic keratosis include cryotherapy, photodynamic therapy, topical medications, and combination therapy. Drugs such as fluorouracil, imiquimod, diclofenac, ingenol mebutate, and others have been approved for the treatment of actinic keratosis.

Significant increase in prevalence of actinic keratosis, use of topical therapeutics as a first line treatment option, rise in demand for actinic keratosis therapeutics, strong presence of pipeline drugs, and rise in geriatric population are the key factors that fuel the growth of the actinic keratosis treatment market. Moreover, rise in adoption of actinic keratosis treatment medications, increase in R&D for the innovation of new products, and surge in healthcare awareness toward actinic keratosis treatment are other factors that contribute toward the growth of the market. However, availability of alternate therapies for treatment of actinic keratosis can hamper the market growth.
