LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global botulinum toxin market report. This research report also lists 23 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Botulinum toxin, also known as BOTOX therapy, was originally used to treat dystonia. Dystonia is a neuromuscular disorder that produces involuntary muscle contractions or spasms. These undesired muscle movements mainly affect movement in the eyes, limbs, neck, face, voice box, or the smooth muscle in the bladder. The goal of the therapy is to reduce muscle spasm and pain.

Competitive vendor landscape

The development of drugs for the treatment of growing spasticity disorders such as wrinkles will increase the competition among vendors. ALLERGAN, Ipsen, and Merz Pharma are dominating the market. However, ALLERGAN and Ipsen have the first-mover advantage in the aesthetic drugs market.

The growing focus of vendors in the aesthetic market will change the market dynamics. For example, in March 2016, Merz Pharma received the EC approval for Bocouture for the treatment of upper facial lines,” says Sapna Jha, a lead infectious and rare diseases research analyst from Technavio.
