Report Overview

The global hyaluronic acid market size was valued at USD 8.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.19% from 2021 to 2028. The market is anticipated to witness high growth due to the aging population and the introduction of technologically advanced products. The shift in preference to minimally invasive procedures and rapid results is expected to drive the market in the coming years. Increasing aesthetic consciousness, the introduction of cost-effective treatments and products, and technological advancements are also among the key factors driving the growth of the market. A rise in the number of plastic surgeons and cosmetic clinics is contributing to an increase in the number of aesthetic procedures being performed.

U.S. hyaluronic acid market size, by application, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The growing adoption of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures including Botox and hyaluronic acid injectables is driving the market. New product developments and rising adoption of business strategies by the key market players including mergers and acquisitions are anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period. Several health benefits of hyaluronic acid, such as moisture retention, faster wound healing, relief from joint pain, preventing dry eyes &discomfort, and preservation of bone strength, drive the market. The natural aging process, tobacco smoking, and pollution can reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid present in human skin.

COVID-19 Hyaluronic Acid Market Impact: 6.6 % decline from 2019 to 2020

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The demand for hyaluronic acid declined, as it has major applications in elective procedures, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, especially during the early stages of the pandemic. Moreover, patients opted out or postponed procedures even in the later stages of the pandemic to avoid the risk of infection, which negatively impacted the market, resulting in a decline in market revenue

Easing of pandemic restrictions across the world and high preference for injection-based elective procedures over surgeries are expected to drive the market post-pandemic

The use of hyaluronic acid-based supplements was reduced drastically during the pandemic. Anika Therapeutics, one of the top companies offering hyaluronic acid supplements for osteoarthritis, witnessed a 24% decline in the use of these supplements

Top players in different segments are launching new products to maintain their position in these tough times. ClearVisc Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Device (OVD) by Bausch Health is the latest approved hyaluronic acid-based viscosupplement for ophthalmic use

 

Proper use of hyaluronic acid-based supplements and serums can prevent this and improve skin health. The industry is witnessing the introduction of newer technology and geographical expansion through new product approvals and mergers & acquisitions done by the industry players. In March 2018, Bioventus launched a new single-injection joint lubricant, Durolane in the U.S. for the treatment of osteoarthritis pain in the knee. Bioventus offers one-injection (Durolane), three-injection (Gelsyn-3), and five-injection (Supartz FX) hyaluronic acid options for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis pain. 

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market is segmented as dermal fillers, osteoarthritis, ophthalmic, and vesicoureteral reflux. Osteoarthritis (OA) dominated the overall market in 2020 with a revenue share of more than 41%. Almost 90% of prescriptions of viscosupplements are intended for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. As per the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), in the U.S., both corticosteroids and hyaluronic acid injections can be used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, but viscosupplementation is slightly more effective than corticosteroids.

Though the share of painkillers in pain management is high, viscosupplements are gaining popularity as a cure. The use of hyaluronan as a treatment for osteoarthritis has been approved by U.S. FDA in 1997 and has gained substantial market share. The osteoarthritis segment is further classified into five-injection, three-injection, and single injection. The single hyaluronic acid injection is well received by the market despite higher treatment costs compared to its counterparts. Single-injection offers higher convenience and reduces the number of hospital visits while reducing pain and adverse effects.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), dermal fillers are the most popular and nonsurgical injectable procedures, especially used for correcting soft tissue defects of the face. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are commonly used for aesthetic procedures, such as improving nasolabial folds, eye wrinkles, dark circles, scar remediation, and rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid injections are easy to use, effective, and relatively less expensive, and these associated advantages are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 43% in 2020 and will expand at a steady CAGR from 2021 to 2028 retaining the leading position. This is due to the presence of a sizeable pool of geriatric population, which is more susceptible to disorders, such as osteoarthritis, vesicoureteral reflux, and cataracts. Moreover, the growing demand for minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries is a significant factor contributing to the market growth in North America.

Global hyaluronic acid market share, by region, 2020 (%)

The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Rising awareness about applications of minimally invasive techniques, increasing disposable income, and the presence of high unmet medical needs in emerging economies, such as South Korea and China, are the key growth-driving factors. Moreover, the growing geriatric population in China and Japan provides a large customer base for anti-aging products and services. Increasing awareness about the applications of hyaluronan and its efficacy also fuels the demand. In addition, the Asian population is influenced by western beauty standards and targets volumized appearance. This has resulted in the growth of the market in this region.
