Ophthalmology Market Insights

  • The advent of new innovative combination drugs will be one of the primary factors driving the growth of the glaucoma therapeutics market. To control the elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), healthcare physicians recommend a combination of two or more drugs for about 40%-45% of the glaucoma patients. According to clinical studies, the prescription of fixed combination therapies for glaucoma is more effective in lowering IOP than individual therapeutic agents.
  • The global contact lens market will grow more than USD 2.8 billion between 2017-2022, accelerating at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period.
  • The emergence of new drug delivery techniques such as the adoption of various strategies to provide the drug with a carrier to hold the drug on the surface of the cornea for a longer duration benefits patients by reducing the frequency of doses. Thus, the emergence of new drug delivery methods will be one of the key trends that will gain traction in the glaucoma therapeutics market.
  • In 2017, the vision care segment dominated the ophthalmology devices market occupying almost 81% of the market share.
