The global ophthalmic devices market is expected to reach USD 55.5 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The rising geriatric population base is presumed to propel the need for ophthalmic devices as this age group is more prone towards the development of chronic eye disorders. The rising prevalence of eye disorders such as macular degeneration, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma is also boosting the growth of ophthalmic devices.
Approximately 10% of the people suffering from eye disorders will experience loss of vision in spite of the proper treatment as per the statistics of the WHO, driving the clinical urgency to incorporate highly advanced ophthalmic devices. Additionally, the rising demand for minimally invasive and complication-free operative surgeries is expected to upsurge the demand for ophthalmic devices.
The ophthalmic devices market growth can also be attributed to technological advancements such as the development of intraocular lenses, mydriatic fundus cameras, and OCT devices. Furthermore, the increasing involvement of market players in expanding treatment solutions through strategic alliances is expected to present this market with a potential growth platform. For instance, in May 2016, Bausch & Lomb through its enterprise partnership with Apple and IBM will develop a cataract surgery app that would integrate patient data, calculation data, and records thereby helping cataract surgeons’ work efficiently. The app will be enabled with IBM’s cognitive computing capabilities to reduce surgical errors.
