U.S. Ophthalmic Devices Market Trends

The U.S. ophthalmic devices market size was estimated at USD 2.52 billion in 2023 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.34% from 2024 to 2030. Major factors contributing to the growth of this market include the growing prevalence of ophthalmic conditions such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, along with the development of advanced ophthalmic surgical instruments. Moreover, rising reimbursement initiatives by the government further drive the market growth.

U.S. ophthalmic devices market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Rising geriatric population, that are more susceptible to age-related ophthalmic disorders, is anticipated to surge the demand for ophthalmic devices. According to the CDC statistics, approximately 12 million people aged 40 and above in the U.S. have vision impairment, including 1 million who are blind, 3 million who have vision impairment after correction, and 8 million who have vision impairment due to uncorrected refractive error.

Over 7 million Americans have vision loss or blindness based on best corrected visual acuity in their better-seeing eye, and this number is expected to double over the next 30 years. The leading causes of vision impairment and blindness in the U.S. are diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and glaucoma.

Technological advancements have revolutionized the accurate diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic disorders. Advent in medications, diagnostic devices, laser technology, and surgical techniques has enhanced the management of conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and dry eye disease. Minimally invasive surgeries such as LASIK, multi-wavelength diabetic retinopathy treatment, ultrasound phacoemulsification, and femtosecond laser surgery are anticipated to drive the demand for ophthalmic devices.

Several companies are actively involved in developing innovative ophthalmic products to sustain their position in the market. Such initiatives further boost the market growth. For instance, in October 2023, Bausch + Lomb Corporation introduced new surgical planning software for the Eyetelligence platform. The new software is designed to streamline surgical planning, and information flow and enable electronic medical record (EMR) and diagnostic device integration.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The U.S. ophthalmic device market is fragmented with presence of numerous manufacturers, including major and minor ophthalmic device companies.

U.S. Ophthalmic Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

Several companies and research institutes are introducing a variety of products to enhance their product portfolios, a strategy that helps them expand their customer engagement, diversify their product offerings, and enhance the consumer’s health outcomes. For instance, in January 2023, Boomerang Ventures teamed up with Purdue Research Foundation to develop smart contact lenses to continuously monitor intraocular pressure (IOP) in a person’s eye.

Key companies are engaging in partnerships and collaborations to foster growth, and innovation, and enhance competitiveness by leveraging the expertise and resources of diverse organizations. For instance, in July 2022, Carl Zeiss Meditec announced a collaboration with Precise Bio for the commercialization of tissue-based implants in patients who require endothelial keratoplasty.

Key companies are constantly making efforts to establish a robust industry position involving efficiently operating by introducing diverse facilities across multiple locations to expand their presence and secure a larger market share. For instance, in December 2023, Corza Medical announced the launch of the new ophthalmic facility at Fenton, Missouri to develop rapid prototyping of new product designs, enhanced manufacturing capabilities, and expansion of research and development capabilities.

Regulatory bodies such as the U.S. FDA offer transparency in device approval procedures, holding manufacturers accountable for product safety and efficacy. These measures establish trust and encourage ethical practices within the industry. For instance, in October 2023, Glaukos announced FDA approval for the use of iDose TR, a travoprost intracameral implant, for reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with ocular hypertension (OHT) or open-angle glaucoma (OAG).

Product Insights

Based on product, optical coherence tomography (OCT) held the largest market share in 2023. OCT produces high-resolution cross-sectional and three-dimensional images of biological microstructure and has major applications in the diagnosis of diseases such as glaucoma, age related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and diabetic retinopathy. Furthermore, the incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) with optical coherence tomography (OCT) is anticipated to enhance the adoption of this device by healthcare professionals, leveraging market growth over the forecast period.

The ophthalmoscope segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. Ophthalmoscopes play a crucial role in diagnosing conditions such as CMV retinitis, papilledema, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and diabetic retinopathy. Moreover, few key companies implement some strategic initiatives to fulfill the demand ophthalmoscopes. For instance, in October 2023, Baxter International Inc. announced the integration of digital image capture capability for eye examinations with its existing Welch Allyn PanOptic Plus Ophthalmoscope, enhancing its functionality and capabilities. Such initiatives is expected to accelerate the market growth.

Applications Insights

Based on application, cataract dominated the market with a share of 44% in 2023. This growth can be attributed to the widespread acceptance of ophthalmic devices for cataract surgical procedures. High prevalence of cataracts significantly impact need of cataract surgeries and thereby increasing segment’s growth.

U.S. ophthalmic devices Market share and size, 2023

The refractive disorders segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2024 to 2030. The refractive disorders include myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. High prevalence of refractive disorders in the country is fueling the growth of this segment. For instance, as per the report published in Journal of Clinical Medicine, approximately 41.6% of individuals are diagnosed with myopia in the U.S.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, hospitals & eye clinic held the largest market share in 2023. The increasing adoption of ophthalmic devices in hospitals and low-cost, effective treatment provided in clinics is driving the growth of this segment. Moreover, mergers and acquisitions undertaken by key companies are expected to boost the demand in market.

The academic and research laboratories segment is projected to witness substantial growth from 2024 to 2030 owing the growing funding for ophthalmic care and research. For instance, in January 2024, The University of California, Irvine School of Medicine received Unrestricted Grant by the nonprofit organization Research to Prevent Blindness. The five-year grant, amounting to $575,000, will be allocated to support eye research undertaken by the Department of Ophthalmology.
