Report Segmentation of the Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Treatment Market

Product Analysis

The market can be divided into two segments based on product types, such as nail paints and tablets. The nail paints market will dominate during the forecast period (2023-2032). Nail Paints are topical antifungal medicines that are applied directly on the infected nail to treat Dermatophytic Onychomycosis. Tablets are oral antifungal medicines that are taken orally to treat the infection. The segment will be boosted by the increasing use of topical nail polishes as a substitute for oral antifungal medications and increased uptake of Jublia. The nail paints market has seen a decline in sales, particularly in Japan, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With increasing government efforts to switch from generic drugs to tablets, the tablet segment will grow vigorously. Additionally, griseofulvin and terbinafine are the gold standard for oral drugs used in the treatment of dermatophytic ophthalmic and boosts the tablet segment during the forecast period.

Type Analysis

The global dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market is segmented into R.X. and OTC types. R.X. type involves the use of antifungal drugs, such as griseofulvin, terbinafine, and itraconazole, which are prescribed by a doctor. OTC includes the use of topical creams, ointments, and gels, which can be purchased without a prescription. R.X. segment is more effective than the OTC type, and there is a higher demand for R.X. products in the market. The rise in the prevalence of onychomycosis, the increasing awareness about the condition, and the presence of effective drugs are the major factors driving the growth of the dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market.

Route of Administration Analysis

The market is divided into topical and oral based on the mode of administration. In 2022, the topical segment held the largest market share and was preferred by dermatologists and podiatrists because they have fewer side effects than oral drugs. Topical treatments are available as creams, ointments, and nail paints. These treatments are applied directly onto the affected nail or skin. Topical medications are preferred over oral medications because of their convenience and better safety profile. Oral medications, such as antifungal drugs, are also available for the treatment of dermatophytic onychomycosis. However, these drugs have potential side effects and require a long-term treatment period to achieve better results. The oral segment’s revenue is expected to decrease as prescriptions are unavailable for most oral antifungals, and people are trying to avoid hospital visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Distribution Channel Analysis

By distribution channel analysis, the market is divided into hospitals, dermatology and pediatric clinics, retail pharmacies, mail-order pharmacies and online sales, drug stores, and another additional segment. The hospital segment is expected to account for a major share of the global dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market due to the availability of advanced treatments, technological advancements, and other related services at hospitals.
