How Growth will Unfold
Actinic keratosis is prominently one of most frequently observed premalignant skin diseases in the white population of the US and the EU. The elderly, fair-skinned, and immunocompromised individuals in the U.S. are highly vulnerable, as prevalence of clinical actinic keratoses is significantly high in the country. Hospitals in the U.S. are thus focusing on apt actinic keratosis treatments to improve their clinical outcomes. However, as the disease is closely linked with skin cancer, the adoption of treatment at cancer treatment centers is also buckling significantly. Rise in prevalence of solar-induced actinic keratoses will particularly create opportunities for market participants in the U.S. and European countries.
