Survival rate from thermal injuries has improved over the years. With the presence of suitable scar treatments available, and prominent research initiatives in process, the recovery period is less than what it was 10 years back. Yet, the present scenario consists no gold standard treatment for scar removal. There are set of treatments present in the anti-scarring treatment market which involves natural therapeutics. Natural therapeutics have shown tremendous benefits both in vitro and in vivo, the results can lead it to become one of the most prominent anti-scarring agents available. Natural therapeutics include both plant based and non-plant based products.
Major advances in the field of burn cases treatment have been made only since late 1960s. The global prevalence for burn injuries is considerably low as compare to what it was in 90s period, initiatives are present in order to work for restricting any case of burn injury. The survival rate for patients with burn injury has greatly increased over the period, it is due to the suitable treatments available. The scars from burn injuries remain a big struggle for the survivor, the impact on the quality of life can be profound. Optimal anti-scarring agents used may significantly improve the appearance and quality of life. Scars are majorly of four types, and the prevalence of each type and new cases is considerably high. There are methods which are in use to dissolve such mental disturbances which often can lead to dysmorphophobia, if not provided with proper attention. The presence of anti-scarring agents helps in achieving a faster recovery period. The social initiatives present for increasing the adoption of such anti-scarring agents is more observed. The use of anti-scarring agents is more than any other current treatment available for scar treatment. It comes out as the most economical solution for scar treatment, with alternatives like laser treatment is far more expensive in terms
The global market for anti-scarring agents is segmented on the basis of product type, type of scar, distribution channel and geography:
