has announced the addition of the "2013
Report on Atopic Dermatitis - Epidemiology Forecast to 2022"
report to their offering.
Due to its chronic and relapsing nature, atopic dermatitis presents a
global public health concern, with reported lifetime prevalence ranging
between 10%-20% in children and 1%-3% in adults (Larsen and Hanifin,
2002). In general, the prevalence of atopic dermatitis is increasing
worldwide, with high prevalence in western and developed nations
compared with other parts of the world. However, recent trends
demonstrate a gradual rise in revalence in developing countries and
plateauing prevalence in developed countries (Asher et al., 2006).
Although atopic dermatitis is not life-threatening, it has a huge impact
on economic burden and quality of life of individuals (Carroll et al.,
Our epidemiological analysis forecasts that prevalent cases of atopic
dermatitis in the 9MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan,
China, and India) will increase from 132.28 million in 2012 to 132.71
million cases in 2022 at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 0.10%. In 2012,
China and India combined contributed 83.04 million cases, comprising
more than 60% of the total prevalent cases in the 9MM.
Our epidemiological forecast projects a substantial increase in the
lifetime prevalent cases of atopic dermatitis in the 9MM over the
forecast period (2012-2022). As GlobalData epidemiologists used steady
prevalence proportions of atopic dermatitis over the forecast period,
the growth in prevalent cases in each market can be attributed to the
change in population demographics in the respective markets, especially
in the younger age groups as they comprise the highest proportion of the
prevalent cases. The forecast underscores the considerable psychosocial
and economic burden inflicted by atopic dermatitis particularly among
