The Global Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) Market Driven by Rising Skin Care Applications

Epidermal growth factors (EGF) are signaling proteins that activate cell surface receptors to stimulate cell proliferation, cell motility, cell survival and differentiation in various tissues and organs. EGF is commonly used in skin care products to stimulate skin cell regeneration and collagen production for anti-aging benefits. It helps repair skin damage from UV rays, improves wound healing and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The growing geriatric population and increasing consumer preference for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients are driving the demand for EGF in anti-aging creams, serums and lotions.

The global Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,349.6 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF) Market is the increasing demand for plant-derived EGF. Due to rising health concerns related to animal testing and ingredients, consumers are shifting towards herbal and plant-based cosmetic products. Companies are investing in research and development of plant-based EGF extracts from sources like aloe vera and ginseng. These natural plant EGFs perform similar anti-aging functions as animal-derived EGF but without ethical issues. They provide additional benefits of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals present in these plants. Another trend is the use of EGF in wound healing applications. EGF spray and gel formulations are gaining traction for treating diabetic ulcers, pressure sores and various kinds of burns. This increasing usage of EGF across diverse applications from skin care to wound management is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.
