Widespread acne drives sales of treatments

With some 40 million to 50 million people in the United States battling acne, it is no surprise that sales of acne treatments continue to be on the rise.

According to data from SymphonyIRI Group, a Chicago-based market research firm, sales of acne treatments rose 0.24% for the 12 weeks ended Oct. 7 at total U.S. multi-outlets, which covers supermarkets, drug stores, mass market retailers (including Walmart), military commissaries, and select club and dollar retail chains.

Going forward, sales of acne treatments will likely see continued growth as manufacturers bring new products to market, and consumers continue to battle the most common skin disorder in the
United States.
