Market Dynamics

  • The growing concern of people about their appearance is gradually increasing, both in the developed and the developing countries, which leads to an increase in the number of cosmetic surgeries performed annually. According to the annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, there were 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the US in 2017, with a 2% increase in the number of procedures over 2016. The rate of the growing acceptance of tissue fillers is high in developed countries, however, in developing countries, people are also getting more concerned with their appearance, especially with the increasing standard of living. Wrinkles are the first visible signs of aging. A face marked by furrows appears tired and neglected. Wrinkles are like small fractures of the skin, and a filler aims to fill them. Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, or wrinkle fillers, are medical device implants approved by the FDA, to help create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds, cheeks, and lips and to increase the volume of the back of the hand. The FDA has approved some dermal fillers for the restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Hence, the growing acceptance for dermal fillers is driving the growth of the facial aesthetics market globally.
