Report Outlook

The global Darier disease market was valued at USD 46.21 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. Darier disease market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, driven by increasing awareness of the disease and advancements in genetic testing and personalized medicine. Darier disease, also known as Darier-White disease or keratosis follicularis, is a rare genetic skin disorder that affects about 1 in 30,000 individuals worldwide. It is caused by mutations in the ATP2A2 gene, which is responsible for encoding the SERCA2 protein, which is crucial in regulating the calcium levels within cells. The disorder is characterized by the development of dark, scaly patches, bumps, and cysts on the skin, especially on the chest, back, scalp, forehead, and nails. The low patient population and high development costs for medicines for uncommon diseases may limit the number of companies investing in this area.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Darier disease is a rare disorder, and the prevalence of the disease is increasing due to improved diagnosis and genetic testing. This is likely to drive demand for new therapies in the coming years. Additionally, one of the major factors boosting the market's expansion is the rising demand for sophisticated dermatological diagnoses for drier diseases. The diagnostic techniques and imaging technologies used in dermatology have advanced significantly, each with advantages and restrictions. Also, technological improvements are aimed at improving the sensitivity and accuracy of the detecting mechanisms in dermatological diagnosis.

For instance, a research report by Ana Maria Malciu et al. published in 2022 claims that most of these artificial intelligence technologies have already achieved clinician-level precision in the identification of numerous skin illnesses, and in several trials, machine accuracy has even surpassed them. The potential for additional study into the automated RCM image analysis process is thus evident.

To Understand the Scope of this Report: Speak to Analyst

Surgery is expected to dominate the industry's market sector during forecast period

Surgery will dominate the market in the projected period. The key driver of the market is the scarcity of Darier disease treatments. Additionally, the primary factor driving the growth of the surgical industry is its ability to reduce pain and discomfort while enhancing results. Dermabrasion, laser treatment, or surgical excision are options for managing recalcitrant diseases.

Laser therapy for treating Darier disease is controversial, as its effectiveness in improving skin conditions and symptoms is still being debated. However, recent developments in surgical methods have shown promising results with using laser therapy as a minimally invasive treatment option. This procedure involves targeted removing damaged or diseased tissue using a laser while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue.

Topical Retinoid will account for a higher share of the market in the upcoming year

Topical retinoid is expected for a higher share throughout the forecast period. The main factor driving the market is anticipated to expand in the next years due to the efficiency of these drugs in treating the condition's symptoms. The possibility of skin irritability and other side effects from topical retinoids is one of the difficulties in this area. Consequently, novel formulations that lessen these adverse effects while maintaining efficacy may provide a competitive advantage.

For instance, the Nardin Hannaet al. research publication 2022 reports that DD has been reported to relapse following discontinuance or decreased frequency of treatment with oral retinoids, necessitating ongoing care. Many treatments have been employed to treat this disease in the literature, but the quality of the evidence still needs to improve. Several companies are currently developing new topical retinoid treatments for Darier disease, which are expected to increase the competition in the market. The growing number of clinical trials and research studies in this area also indicate a positive outlook for the topical retinoid market.

Dermatologist accounted for the largest share in 2022

Dermatologists held the largest market share in 2022. The main factor driving the market is that they play a critical role in managing this condition, as they are responsible for prescribing and monitoring treatments and providing patient education and support.

As the prevalence of Darier disease continues to increase, there is a growing demand for dermatologists who specialize in diagnosing and treating this condition. This has led to an increase in dermatologists focusing on rare skin diseases, such as Darier disease. As new treatments become available, dermatologists will play a crucial role in ensuring patients receive the most effective care possible. Furthermore, the growth in this segment is expected to drive improvements in patient outcomes and quality of life.

The demand in North America is expected to witness significant growth during forecast period

North America is expected to witness significant growth during the projected period. The market is expected to grow in the coming years due to several factors, including the increasing availability of healthcare services, rising healthcare expenditure, and increasing awareness of rare diseases among healthcare professionals and patients.

Additionally, developing new therapies and technologies for diagnosing and treating Darier disease is expected to drive growth. As for drug development in North America, many pharmaceutical companies have conducted clinical trials for various conditions, including Darier disease. In recent years, some companies in this region have been developing new drugs and treatments for the disease, including topical and gene therapies.
