Global ophthalmic equipment market: Overview
The continuous growth of the ophthalmic equipment market can be attributed to increase in eye related diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and others. In addition, factors such as rapid technological advancements, technological advanced minimally invasive surgeries, such as LASIK surgery, increasing geriatric population and rising Age-related macular degenerations (AMD) are expected to boost the global ophthalmic equipment market. In 2018, according to National Eye Institute, in U.S. among older white Americans, more than 14 percent of white Americans age 80 and older affected by AMD. However, high cost of contact lenses, ophthalmic equipment and risks associated with it, coupled with lack of skilled ophthalmologists, and poor reimbursement policies for ophthalmic equipment restraint the growth of the target market.
Global ophthalmic equipment market: Market Potential
According to World Health Organization, approximately 1.3 billion people are living with some form of distance or near vision impairment across the globe. The majority of people with vision impairment are over the age of 50 years. Increase in population growth and ageing will lead to the rise in the risk of more people being afflicted by vision impairment. Vision impairment can be caused by diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, and diabetic retinopathy. Subsequently, increasing prevalence of these diseases related to eyes is expected to propel the growth of the ophthalmic equipment market across the globe.
LASIK surgery is used to improve vision and reduces a persons need for glasses or contact lenses. In 2018, according to National Centre for Biotechnology Information, improvement shown in excimer laser technology that is used in LASIK surgery performed for corneal ablation provides superior results compared to microkeratomes and earlier lasers. The growing geriatric population leads to increasing burden on health systems and which results in ailment of the eye. According to World Health Organization, the proportion of the worlds population over 60 years will nearly double from 12% to 22% between 2015 and 2050. This is also expected to drive growth of the ophthalmic equipment market.
