It is estimated that 1 in 52 men and 1 in 77 women in the US will be diagnosed with melanoma in their lifetime. Despite the fact that melanoma is one of the most rapidly increasing forms of human cancer, new treatments have been slow in developing and the mortality rate continues to rise. We now know that there are several well-defined risk factors for this form of cancer. Our report contains quantitative and qualitative analytical content, covering the present and future of the global cancer drugs market. Although our report is market-centered, we include medical and technical information. We include analyses of under-met market needs from the present looking forward.

GMR Data forecast that Avastin will reach its financial peak by 2018 before losing its patent exclusivity in 2019. The drug is also set to benefit from a potential combination therapy, with EGFL7, for the treatment of colorectal and lung cancer, similar to that of Herceptin and Perjeta.

Dermatopathology is a joint subspecialty of dermatology and pathology and to a lesser extent of surgical pathology that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at a microscopic and molecular level. It also encompasses analyses of the potential causes of skin diseases at a basic level. Dermatopathologists work in close association with clinical dermatologists. In fact, most of them are trained primarily in dermatology themselves. Dermatologists are able to recognize most skin diseases based on their appearances, anatomic distributions, and behavior. Sometimes, however, those criteria do not allow a conclusive diagnosis to be made, and a skin biopsy is taken to be examined under the microscope or are subject to other molecular tests. That process reveals the histology of the disease and results in a specific diagnostic interpretation. In some cases, additional specialized testing needs to be performed on biopsies, including immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, flow cytometry, and molecular-pathologic analysis.

Dermatologic surgery deals with the diagnosis and treatment of medically necessary and cosmetic conditions of the skin, hair, nails, veins, mucous membranes and adjacent tissues by various surgical, reconstructive, cosmetic and non-surgical methods. The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue. Examples of dermatologic surgery procedures include anti-aging treatments, injectable and implantable soft tissue fillers, botulinum toxin treatments, correction of acne scarring, chemical peeling, tumescent liposuction, vein therapy, hair restoration, laser surgery, skin cancer treatment and reconstructive flaps and grafts.

Dermatologists account for only 1% of the U S physician population but comprise nearly 4% of overall Medicare expenditures.  Skin cancer has become the sixteenth most costly Medicare diagnosis accounting for $2.9 billion annually.

Dermatology is the medical science of disorders of the skin. Often skin lesions and disorders are markers of internal disease and mirror the processes occurring within the body. Dermatology has been called "a window through which to see the entire body." Skin consists of distinct layers. The most superficial (most exterior) layer is the epidermis. The epidermis is a stratified squamous epithelium. It has stacked layers of cells. Below the epidermis lies the dermis and below that we find the subcutaneous fat, or sub cutis. Dozens of different skin infections exist, with huge variation in symptoms and severity. Some of the most common skin conditions include Contact allergies, Alopecia, Psoriasis, Blistering disorders, Rashes, Atopic Dermatitis.

According to the American Cancer Society, there are more than 2 million annual cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer (non melanomas) in the U.S. The occurrence of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, has increased from 47,700 diagnoses in 2000 to 75,000 in 2009. While demand for cosmetic dermatology decreased during the recession, the economic recovery combined with an aging population is driving a resurgence of demand for cosmetic procedures.

A veterinary dermatologist is a veterinarian with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of animal skin, ear, hair, nail, hoof and mouth disorders. Specifically veterinary dermatologists have significant training and experience in the management of allergic skin disease. Companion animal ownership is continuing to increase. Sixty-two percent of US households now own a companion animal (excluding horses), equating to 72.9 million homes . Many other countries are witnessing higher than ever rates of companion animal ownership, including emerging markets such as Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Russia. Spending on companion animals is also continuing to increase.   This trend is being mirrored in other countries.

 In the USA, spending has increased from a total of US$23 billion in 1988 to an estimated US$51 billion in 2011. Around 25% of this spending was on veterinary care (including medicines) and a further 20% on over-the-counter products and supplies, with the remainder on food, accessories, etc.

There are various diagnostic tests that can be performed "in house" by veterinarians to help with everyday dermatological cases. Skin scrapings should be the most common diagnostic test performed in veterinary dermatology. A dull scalpel blade or similar instrument is moistened with mineral oil and used to scrape away some of the epidermis, in which may reside a number of different parasites. A trichogram is used to visualize the hair for evidence of pruritus (self- inflicted alopecia), dermatophytosis, endocrine alopecia, pigmentation defects, and growth phase. For Allergy Testing Atopic Dermatitis – Intradermal testing (IDT, IDST) and aeroallergen-specific IgE serum testing (ASIST, in vitro testing) are considered important tests for the demonstration of IgE-mediated hypersensitivity in atopic dogs.

According to estimates, there will be approximately 70,000 new cases of skin and 8800 deaths in 2011. The incidence of skin diseases has been steadily increasing and has doubled in recent decades. For lesions with a depth of less than 1mm, surgical excision is usually curative and 5-year survival rate is 93–97%.Detection of skin diseases  at an early stage is critical for improving the survival rate.

The Dermatologists industry has increasingly expanded into cosmetic dermatology, with more dermatologists offering anti-aging procedures such as dermabrasion, laser treatments, dermoscopy and Botox. These treatments have proven to be a high-growth sector for the industry and have contributed to the industry's consistently high profit margins. Dermatologists tend to locate in urban areas, close to hospitals and education centers. Key statistics on dermatologists and plastic surgeons and their market in the United States as of 2012. There were 9,641 practicing dermatologists in the United States. In the United States, demand for cosmetic surgery products is expected to rise with injectables as the largest and fastest growing segment on the market. The number of people who used a skin doctor (dermatologist) within the last 12 months in the United States (USA) from spring 2008 to spring 2014. In spring 2008, the number of people who used askin doctor (dermatologist) within a period of 12 months amounted to around 28.93 million.

The number of physicians that practice independently has been declining at a steady rate of ~2% per year. This rate is expected to increase to ~5% by 2013. Only 5.3% of dermatology residents plan to practice solo and only 13.0% of dermatologists within eight years of residency (“young dermatologists”) currently have an independent practice. There were 9,641 practicing dermatologists in the United States.
