Global Scar Treatment market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12,020.5 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.48% during the forecast period (2023-2030).

Scars form as part of the healing process after a cut or injury to the skin. The skin repairs itself by forming new tissue to contract wounds and fill gaps caused by injury. Scar tissue is primarily composed of a protein called collagen. Dark-skinned people (especially African, Asian, or Hispanic people), and people with red hair are more likely to develop keloid scars, which grow beyond the damaged area. Depending on the size, type, and location of the scar, it can be unsightly and difficult to move. Not all scars require treatment and many fade over time. Treatment can help if scars are bothersome or causing pain.
