Diagnosed prevalent cases of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) are expected to increase at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 0.11% from 780,000 cases in 2018 to 800,000 cases in 2028 in the seven major markets (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan).

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a long term, recurrent skin condition that causes painful lumps under the skin that form near the hair follicles where there are sweat glands. HS is characterized by abscesses and scarring on the skin. The abscesses may break open and leak pus or cause tunnels under the skin. The cause of HS is not known, but is thought to have a link to a genetic link because a third of all cases have a relative with HS.

HS is not a life-threatening condition, but does have a major impact on the patients’ quality of life. Some patients develop depression due to the social isolation, pain, and embarrassment they experience associated with the symptoms of HS. The cause of HS is not well understood, future epidemiologic research that investigates the cause and prevalence of HS is important to gain further insight into the frequency of disease, risk factors associated with it, and treatment.

The report "Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS): Epidemiology Forecast to 2028", found that there is insufficient chronological data to assess changes in the prevalence of HS over time, therefore, the most recent estimate of diagnosed prevalence of HS was held constant for the forecast period for all the markets. The report also found that the US had the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of HS. In Germany and Japan, however, diagnosed prevalent cases of HS is expected to decline during the forecast period while all other markets are expected to see an increase.
