Molluscum Contagiosum Market Size

DelveInsight's 'Molluscum Contagiosum (MC)- Market Insights, Epidemiology, and Market Forecast-2028' report deliver an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted epidemiology as well as the market trends of Molluscum Contagiosum in the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and the United Kingdom), and Japan. The Report provides the current treatment practices, emerging drugs, market share of the individual therapies, the current and forecasted market size of Molluscum Contagiosum from 2017 to 2028 segmented by seven major markets.

Molluscum Contagiosum is a common superficial skin infection caused by the poxvirus (Molluscum Contagiosum virus), it is one of the 50 most frequent diseases worldwide. The virus is transmitted mainly by direct contact with infected skin, which can be sexual, nonsexual, or autoinoculation. It is common in children and generally presents with asymptomatic lesions; however, it can present with pruritus, erythema, and on some occasions, bacterial super infections with inflammation and pain.

MC is characterized by painless white or skin-colored papular skin-lesions that are generally 2-5 mm in size, though early lesions can be smaller.

Molluscum Contagiosum - Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm

In Molluscum Contagiosum the patients typically have 1-20 molluscum lesions, although even healthy patients may have a hundred or more lesions. In normal hosts, MC is benign natured, limited to the skin, but lesions can take as long as 6-12 months to resolve. Immunocompromised patients can develop very large (>15 mm) and numerous lesions, and bacterial super infections.

The diagnosis is based on clinical findings. A useful clinical tool is a dermoscopy. If the diagnostic doubt persists, confocal microscopy or skin biopsy could be performed. Treatment is not necessary for most cases of MC as lesions are generally self-limiting and resolve without scarring. The need for active treatment for MC is controversial; as it is a frequent reason for consultation in pediatric dermatology, and given its self-limited nature, the decision to treat or not becomes complex and varied up on a case-by-case basis. Clinical inflammation has been observed as preliminary step for spontaneous regression of some MC lesions


Molluscum Contagiosum Epidemiology

The Molluscum Contagiosum epidemiology division provides insights about historical and current patient pool and forecasted trend for every 7 major countries. It helps to recognize the causes of current and forecasted trends by exploring numerous studies and views of key opinion leaders (KOL).

The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology (Total Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum in 7MM, Gender-Specific Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum in 7MM, Age-Specific Prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum,), scenario of Molluscum Contagiosum in the 7MM covering United States, EU5 countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom) and Japan from 2017-2028.

According to DelveInsight, the total prevalent cases of Molluscum Contagiosum in the 7MM was found to be 12,161,039 in 2017. The prevalence of Molluscum Contagiosum in the 7MM is expected to increase during the study period of 2017-2028.


Molluscum Contagiosum Drug Chapters

This segment of the Molluscum Contagiosum report encloses the detailed analysis of marketed drugs and late stage (Phase-III and Phase-II) pipeline drugs. It also helps to understand the clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, approval and patent details, advantages and disadvantages of each included drug and the latest news and press releases.

The current market of the Molluscum Contagiosum is centered with the destruction of lesions by cryotherapy, curettage, laser, salicylic acid. Alternatively, immune-modulating therapies, such as topical imiquimod, cimetidine, chemical methods such as trichloroacetic acid, cantharidin, tretinoin, tazarotene, podophyllotoxin are in use. Along with this, combination therapies have been used in attempts to speed up the healing of MC lesions. 

Cryotherapy and curettage are the top choices as the treatment for all health care providers as it has shown effective results. Curettage generally requires a topical anesthetic, which is probably the most effective technique that requires skill and patient collaboration, which is often lacking. Moreover, these techniques can cause scarring, hypo or hyperpigmentation, and can be painful, especially for children.

Salicylic Acid is also used to treat MC, advantages of these acids include convenience, reasonable cost, minimal discomfort, and reasonable effectiveness. Disadvantages include the length of time before results are seen and complex curetting.

Along with this, Immunotherapeutic methods are used which are based on the stimulation of a cellular and/or humoral immune response that can eliminate the viral infection

Combination therapies, including two or more modes of therapy (destructive, cytotoxic, antivirals, or immune modulators) may be used to increase the response rate, as well as the speed of resolution.

Several companies are working robustly on many new therapies, such as as VP-102 (Verrica Pharmaceuticals), SB206 (Novan/Ligand Pharmaceuticals), VBP-245 (Veloce Biopharma) and others. These all are anticipated to enter the Molluscum Contagiosum market by 2028. 

Molluscum Contagiosum Market Outlook

The Molluscum Contagiosum market outlook of the report helps to build the detailed comprehension of the historic, current and forecasted trend of the market by analyzing the impact of current therapies on the market, unmet needs, drivers and barriers and demand of better technology.

According to DelveInsight, the market of Molluscum Contagiosum in 7MM was found to be approximately USD 2,183.43 Million in 2017.

Molluscum Contagiosum market size in the United States accounted for approx. 59% of the total market in 2017. The EU5 led the market in 2017, followed by the US and Japan respectively. Due to the high prevalence of this disease in the region, the Molluscum Contagiosum treatment market in the EU5 is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period (2019-2028).


Molluscum Contagiosum Drugs Uptake

This section focusses on the rate of uptake of the potential drugs recently launched in the market or will get launched in the market during the study period from 2017-2028. The analysis covers market uptake by drugs; patient uptake by therapies and sales of each drug.

Currently, the market of molluscum Contagiosum depend on off-label therapies such as the cryotherapy, curettage, laser, salicylic acid. Immune-modulating therapies, such as topical imiquimod, cimetidine, chemical methods such as trichloroacetic acid and others. 

The therapies are in the stage of development being developing by VP-102 (Verrica Pharmaceuticals), SB206 (Novan/Ligand Pharmaceuticals), VBP-245 (Veloce Biopharma) for patients with Molluscum Contagiosum.
