The global facial injectables market is highly competitive, and dominated by few global players. U.S. leads the overall facial injectable market; however the market is rapidly growing in South-East Asian countries owing to increasing trend for medical tourism. In the recent past there has been a surge of counterfeit products circulating in the Asian market. In 2013, ShanghaiDaily published that some patients had approached physicians with complaints of swollen face after using Botox products purchased online at substantially lower costs. In China, Hongli (Lanzhou Institute of Biological Products) and Botox (Allergan) are the only approved botulinum toxin brands. To tap lucrative market opportunity in the facial injectables market, various fake treatment centers have also emerged in this region.
In October 2013, Allergan announced that Juvederm Voluma XC was approved in the U.S. as the first and only dermal filler for deep injection to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area in adults over the age of 21. Cosmetic Botox accounted for 15% share in the company’s revenue in 2013. In 2014, Gladerma (Nestle S.A.) announced that it entered into an agreement with Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. to gain full commercialization rights for Restylane, Perlane, Emervel, Sculptra and Dysport for use in aesthetic dermatology in the U.S. and Canada. These events have changed the global facial injectable market place. Zyderm, Sculptra, Captique, Hylaform, Artefill are other brands competing in the market.
