The Onychomycosis Treatment Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Onychomycosis also known as tinea unguium is a fungal infection of the fingernails or toenails that may involve any component of the nail unit, including the matrix, bed, or plate. This may cause pain, disfigurement, and discomfort and may produce serious issues, and results in reducing quality of life. Onychomycosis is of different types such as superficial onychomycosis, distal and lateral subungual onychomycosis, proximal subungual onychomycosis, endonyx onychomycosis and total dystrophic onychomycosis. Onychomycosis accounts for one third of fungal skin infections because only about one half of nail dystrophies are caused by fungus.

Some of the symptoms of onychomycosis are whitish to yellow-brown discoloration, thickened, distorted in shape, brittle, crumbly or ragged, Smelling slightly foul. Toenail fungal infection can start from foot fungus, and it can spread from one nail to another. Factors that can increase risk of developing nail fungus include diabetes, circulation problems or a weakened immune system, psoriasis, sweating heavily, reduced blood flow and more years of exposure to fungi and slower growing nails.

As per some of the Research studies, estimates up to 10% of adults in Western countries have fungal infection of the nails and this is projected to increase by 20% in adults who are above 60 years of age. In addition, as per study published in PLOS PATHOGENS, prevalence rate of onychomycosis has been reported to be as 23% across Europe, and 20% in East Asia. In North America, the incidence of onychomycosis is up to 14%, with fungal infection responsible for 50% of all nail disease.

Increasing geriatric population, rising prevalence of onychomycosis and diabetic population worldwide and growing awareness about the potential threats of onychomycosis are the key driving factors in onychomycosis treatment market.
