Nail onychomycosis or fungus infection is caused by a fungus called Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. However, few cases may also be caused by yeasts and molds. Fungi grow and spread due to conditions of warmth and moisture. The infection begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of the nail and as it spreads deeper into the nail, it causes potentially painful nail discoloration, thickening, and development of crumbling edges. Onychomycosis commonly affects toenails than in fingernails, as toenails are often confined in a dark, warm, moist environment inside shoes where fungi can thrive. Old age people are more likely to be affected by the disease due to suppressed nail growth and immunity, and other complications.

Major driver for growth of the dermatophytic onychomycosis treatment market is high prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis worldwide. According to a study published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology in 2013, the mean prevalence of dermatophytic onychomycosis in Europe and North America was 4.3% in the population-based studies and 8.9% in the hospital-based studies. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention statistics in 2017, around 23 million people in the U.S. are affected by this disease each year.

Increasing geriatric population across the globe is another major factor driving growth of the market. According to the Population Prospects report by the United Nations, the number of people aged 60 years and above would reach 1.3 billion by 2025.
