Market Overview

 Global "Keloid Treatment Market"  Expected to reach a high CAGR of 9.9% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Keloids are a type of raised scar that is caused by an excess of a protein (collagen) in the skin during healing after an injury. Keloids are often lumpy or ridged but are not harmful and are usually self-diagnosable. Anything that can cause scarring can cause a keloid, and they can grow to be much larger than the original injury itself. This includes being burned, cut, or having severe acne. Keloids sometimes show up a few months after the skin was injured and continue to grow for years or can last for lifelong. The goal of keloid treatments is to soften, flatten, or shrink the keloid as they can be hard to get rid of entirely and have the tendency to return after treatment. Healthcare professionals typically prefer combination treatment to achieve high treatment efficacy rates.

The global market for the Keloid Treatment Market is primarily driven by the rising technological advancements in skincare and scar removal, increasing awareness regarding products and treatment options for keloids among patients, and the ever-rising focus on appearance. Moreover, the increasing number of traumas surgeries and burn cases and the rise in expenditure on personal care products significantly contribute towards the development of the keloid treatment market. For instance, of the scar conditions identified 17% were reported as due to trauma, 14% to burns, and the remaining 69% to operations or other and unspecified causes. Keloids can appear anywhere on the body and affect an estimated 10-15% of all wounds.
