The global dermacosmetics market was worth US$ 17.5 Bn in 2021 and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period (2022-2032). Key players operating in the dermacosmetics market are developing products targeted at particular ambiguous skin health issues, and this trend is anticipated to continue throughout the decade.

Furthermore, significant companies in the market, such as Occulus Innovative Science, Inc. and CCA Industries, Inc., are utilizing a variety of e-Commerce marketing strategies to promote their products, particularly topical products. e-Commerce companies provide their topical products at reduced prices, either through coupons or by offering similar product choices. This strategy has been a key role in the growing and regular use of dermacosmetic products by end users, helping companies expand their market footprints across the world.
