Botox Market Introduction & Overview

Botox refers to Botulinum Toxins, a protein which is produced by Gram-positive, spore forming bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botulinum toxin is a potent neurotoxin protein that inhibits signal conduction to the neuromuscular endplate. The toxin acts directly on the neuromuscular endplate and other cholinergic synapses where it inhibits the release of neurotransmitter acetylcholine, leading to muscular paralysis of the affected fiber and loss of target organ function. Limited and diluted amounts of botulinum toxin is used for treating several therapeutic indications such as cervical dystonia, lazy eye,  muscle contractures, hyperhidrosis, chronic migraine and bladder dysfunction among others. There are seven serologically distinct types of botulinum toxin such as A, B, C1, D, E, F, and G. Botulinum toxin types A and B are commonly used in medical preparations for treatment of muscle spasms.

The global botox market is driven by increasing focus on innovation & expansion of product portfolio by launch of new and efficient aesthetic & therapeutic substances. Moreover, increasing preference of non-surgical cosmetic procedures in contributing to the augmented application of botox in cosmetic procedures. However, the potential health risk associated with botulinum toxin is hampering the market growth.
