Analyst View:

Rising prevalence of skin pigmentation disorders, growing public health awareness and tough competition faced by dermal care product manufacturers in developing countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea and South East Asia promote the demand for skin pigmentation disorder treatment products. Topical drugs such as adapelene, benzoyl peroxide, L-ascorbic acid, hydroquinone and azelaic acid are prescribed by dermatologist due to better clinical outcomes and minimal adverse effects.
