General dermatology

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.

The $10.1 billion U.S. dermatology market is expected to grow to $13.1 million by 2017, representing a 5.3% CAGR. Acne is the largest market segment of the dermatological diagnostics market accounting for 28.7% of the total therapeutics market followed by psoriasis (26.4%), rosacea (14.9%) and atopic dermatitis (9%). The overall dermatological diagnostics and therapeutics industry is forecast to witness tremendous growth rate and reach $38 million by the year 2013 with annual growth rate of 8.7%.
