Increasing cases of the alopecia areata, which is considered one of the common autoimmune diseases and affects many individuals, leads to an increased demand for different types of medications to treat the condition. Alopecia areata is considered one of the common autoimmune diseases that result in hair loss in different body areas, including the scalp, face, and elsewhere. The most common symptoms of this condition start during the childhood of all males and females and affect males and females of all ages. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) estimates, approximately 6.8 million people alone in the US and 147 million people worldwide suffer from or will suffer from this condition at some point in their lives. Alopecia areata patchy, alopecia areata totalis, and alopecia areata Universalis are the most common types of alopecia areata. The Alopecia area has three types, including alopecia areata patchy, alopecia areata totalis, and alopecia areata Universalis, among others. Although the condition alopecia areata is not curable, the condition can be treated as the hair follicles remain alive, and normal hair growth can be resumed if the treatment and medication are taken. Sometimes, however, hair growth can resume even without undergoing treatment or consuming medications. Hence, these factors lead to a surge in demand and cause the market’s growth to propel over the forecast period.

Some individuals are consuming oral and topical medicals, including steroids, azathioprine, methotrexate, and ciclosporin, among others. These types of medications affect the immune systems of these patients and lead to the weakening of their immune systems, thus making them more prone to being infected by a coronavirus. In addition, the use of topical medications such as creams, lotions, and steroidal injections will also need to cause an increase in the chances of contracting the coronavirus. Therefore, these factors lead to an increase in awareness among individuals to avoid using a medicine containing such components to mitigate the risk of coronavirus infection.

The drug that has been developed will prevent the immune system from attacking the hair follicles and lead to the restoration of normal hair growth. The drug is pending approval and, if approved, it will be the first drug authorized by the FDA to be used as a treatment for alopecia areata.

Topical type treatment products are estimated to hold a considerable share over the forecast period due to their increased preference for oral treatment products.

The topical medications are mostly applied on the skin or areas with mucous membranes and comprise a wide variety of classes such as creams, foams, gels, lotions, and ointments.

The North American region is estimated to hold a significant share over the forecast period due to rising androgenic alopecia cases in high-income countries such as the US and the Asia Pacific region. It is estimated to increase its share over the forecast period due to investments being made into the healthcare sector.

Many leading pharmaceutical companies provide alopecia treatment products in this region and the well-established healthcare industry and infrastructure in the countries such as the US. In addition, there is faster adoption of alopecia drugs and treatments in this region owing to the onset of androgenic alopecia among the individuals in the US, which is attributed to the sedentary lifestyle they lead.
