Global Dermatitis Herpetiformis Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global dermatitis herpetiformis market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.22% from 2023 to 2028.

Dermatitis herpetiformis is a long-term autoimmune condition linked to gluten sensitivity. It's a rare condition that's tied to celiac disease. Dr. Duhring first described the ailment in 1884, now known as Duhring disease or Duhring-Brocq disease. Erythematous, urticarial plaques, blisters, and pruritic vesicles are symptoms of this condition. Knees, backs, scalps, elbows, and buttocks are the most common sites. The disease can be highly frustrating; however, sophisticated medical facilities and lifestyle changes have made dermatitis herpetiformis therapy possible. Dermatitis herpetiformis affects roughly 11.2 persons per 100,000 in the United States and 75.3 people per 100,000 worldwide. Hereditary and autoimmune factors complicate the disease's etiology. It causes sensitivity to the gluten protein gliadin, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. In addition, gluten in the diet causes immunoglobulin A antibodies, which initiate an autoimmune response against the skin and intestines. In dermatitis herpetiformis, gastrointestinal problems may or may not be symptomatic. Gluten-sensitive enteropathy is seen in about 90% of affected patients with an endoscopic examination.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global dermatitis herpetiformis market:

The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and subsequent lockdown in several nations worldwide have financially impacted major urea cycle disorders treatment firms. Moreover, the private healthcare sector is one of the areas that the COVID-19 pandemic has damaged the most. The pandemic has had a detrimental impact on the worldwide dermatitis herpetiformis market regarding research and development, production, and pharmaceutical supply. In addition, due to government lockdowns in some countries, the pandemic has impacted the expansion of pharmaceutical industries of various corporations worldwide.


The growth of the global dermatitis herpetiformis market is primarily due to the rapid increase in the number of cases of dermatitis herpetiformis.

Moreover, patients between the ages of 15 and 40 may be affected. Males are more susceptible to the condition than females, according to the DermNet NZ organization. Dermatitis herpetiformis causes intense itching in patients. Manufacturers will be able to provide items that provide rapid comfort due to this. The global dermatitis herpetiformis market is bolstered by technological developments and rigorous research and development by scientists to improve medicine quality and reduce adverse effects. On the other hand, most of the world's population is more likely to have dental problems. Furthermore, dermatitis herpetiformis is frequently misdiagnosed as scabies. In addition, therapy medicines may cause anemia, type 1 diabetes, osteoporosis, and thyroid problems. Again, due to ongoing expenditures in developing treatments for dermatitis herpetiformis, the worldwide dermatitis herpetiformis market is estimated to rise rapidly shortly.

Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) is a chronic autoimmune illness that causes severe itching, burning, and rash skin rash. It's most common in persons with celiac disease, a gluten-sensitive enteropathy, or a problem digesting gluten. Regarding epidemiology, DH is an uncommon disease that primarily affects young adults. It has been diagnosed in newborns as young as eight months old and elderly persons as old as ninety. Boys are more affected than females, with a 2:1 ratio. However, among patients under 20, the ratio is 12 females for every eight men. The prevalence of DH varies by country, with 1:1,000,000 new cases per year in Germany, 11 cases per 100,000 in Scotland, 20-39 instances per 100,000 in Sweden, and 58.8 cases per 100,000 in Ireland. A strict gluten-free diet is a definitive treatment for DH, with skin improvement predicted in several months, albeit it may take years for the gluten-free diet to serve as the sole treatment.


The global dermatitis herpetiformis market growth is likely to be hampered by complications associated with treating dermatitis herpetiformis.

Patients may, however, have dental problems. There's also a potential that dermatitis herpetiformis will be misdiagnosed as scabies. Furthermore, the patient has anemia, osteoporosis, Type 1 diabetes, and thyroid problems due to therapeutic medicines. The global dermatitis herpetiformis market is being pushed by a lack of gluten-free food in some countries, an increase in the incidence of dermatitis herpetiformis, increased research and development of new treatment options, and more awareness.
