Hyaluronic Acid Market Analysis

The Hyaluronic Acid Products Market size is expected to grow from USD 12.04 billion in 2023 to USD 17.36 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.60% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

Hyaluronic acid is a sought-after ingredient in cosmetics and skin care products due to its exceptional moisture-retaining properties. Thus, the demand for hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in skincare and cosmetics products has been steadily rising in the market. Further, rapidly aging demographic profiles in the Asia-Pacific segment, including Japan, Australia, and China, have presented a huge opportunity for the dietary supplement and cosmetics industry to develop and gain increasing revenues using hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient. Moreover, top players in different segments are launching new hyaluronic acid-based products to maintain their position. For instance, ClearVisc Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Device (OVD) found by Bausch Health in 2021 is the latest approved hyaluronic acid-based Visco supplement for ophthalmic use. The increasing number of patients with osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis is leading manufacturers to produce hyaluronic acid-based supplements and injectables.

Over the forecasted period, market growth is anticipated to be fueled by the increasing preference for minimally invasive procedures and the requirement for quicker results. The emergence of cost-effective treatments and products, the aging population, growing aesthetic consciousness, and technology advancements are a few of the drivers propelling the industry's expansion. Moreover, the percentage of aesthetic treatments being performed is rising as a result of an increase in plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgery clinics. The industry is being driven by the increasing use of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures like Botox and injectable hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, Hyaluronic Acid has major use in cosmetic applications. For instance, in skincare formulation, hyaluronic acid can be used as a moisturizing component owing to its hydrophilic nature. As a result, key players are developing new hyaluronic ingredients in the market to meet the growing demand in the cosmetics market. For instance, in 2022, K-Beauty Firm Amorepacific developed a blue hyaluronic acid, a moisturizing skincare ingredient. Thereby, the increasing demand for hyaluronic acid ingriednt in various industries is anticipated to drive the overall market growth.

Hyaluronic Acid Market Trends

Increased Cases of Orthopedic Disorders

Hyaluronic acid in dietary supplements is found extremely valuable for individuals suffering from orthopedic disorders such as osteoarthritis (a type of degenerative joint disease) as it helps reduce the pain and lubricate the joints. The aging or geriatric population is one of the largest target segments for the hyaluronic acid market as they are highly susceptible to incontinence, bone injuries, and fractures. Thus, with the increasing cases of bone and joint-related issues, the market for hyaluronic acid is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

There is a growing prevalence of orthopedic diseases, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, knee injuries, etc., resulting in bone damage. In severe cases, total knee replacement (TKR) surgery can be delayed with the help of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). For instance, in July 2022, WHO reported that approximately 1.71 billion people have musculoskeletal conditions worldwide. Rising musculoskeletal conditions, including knee, hip, and other joint diseases, are increasing the demand for joint replacement surgical surgeries, in turn increasing the demand for Hyaluronic acid medication, thereby driving the growth of the Hyaluronic Acid Market segment in the Pharmaceutical Industry.

An article published in the journal Research Bone in May 2022 reported that with the increase in the aging of the world's population, it is estimated that the prevalence of osteoarthritis (OA) will increase from 26.6% to 29.5% among the middle-aged population by 2032. The source also reported a higher incidence of osteoarthritis (OA) in women than in men. The prevalence of osteoarthritis (OA) is expected to increase to 12% of its present cases by 2040 in the Netherlands. Thus, the increasing incidence of osteoarthritis (OA) is increasing the demand for Hyaluronic Acid, thereby propelling the growth of this segment in the pharmaceutical industry since most of the osteoarthritis (OA) patients are suggested to take Hyaluronic Acid Injections by doctors during the treatment process. Therefore, all the above mentioned factors drive the Hyaluronic Acid Market across the world particularly in Pharmaceutical Industry.

North America Holds a Prominent Share in the Market

The cosmetic industry in the United States is one of the most flourished and mature markets regarding innovations and product availability. The demand from the country (where younger generations reject the idea of brand follow-up but prefer locally sourced, organic. and sustainable cosmetic solutions) is expected to drive the growth of the hyaluronic acid market by streamlining its presence across skin-related products. The United States market for hyaluronic acid is likely to be driven by the 'anti-aging' section. The consumers in the Gen X segment seek to approach 'ageless' products, citing the ample spending power to embrace a reliable option for long-term use. North America dominates the hyaluronic acid market due to the strong healthcare industry and increased alertness. Furthermore, the swift adoption of new skin care treatments and technologies will further boost the growth of the hyaluronic acid market in the region during the forecast period.

Moreover, the United States market is moving away from animal-derived hyaluronic acid and drifting toward synthetic, botanical, and fermented ingredients. Thus, global players are actively investing in R&D for new product launches. For instance, in 2020, Givaudan launched Unitamuron™ H-22, a vegetal hyaluronic acid that contains an aqueous extract of tamarind seeds that could be used in a range of products, including moisturizing, anti-wrinkles products, primers, lip care, rinse-off products, detangling shampoo, and hair care. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid injections are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), exclusively for use in Intra-articular viscosupplementation to treat pain associated with arthritis in the United States, thereby catering to the market growth in the country.
