The chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy treatment market was valued at $1.6 billion in 2020 and is expected to register growth at a CAGR of 5.7%, resulting in a value of approximately $2.4 billion by 2027. The growing prevalence of cancer diagnosis and the increase in cases involving chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The advancement of technology advances and the rising demand for cost-efficient therapeutics are also expected to play a significant role in the market’s growth over time (https://ibn.fm/3OYf9).
The company has three products currently on the market:
- Minoxidil Booster(TM) – a topical treatment designed to improve Minoxidil efficacy
- Photocil(TM) – a topical treatment for psoriasis and vitiligo
