Global Ophthalmic Device Industry Trends

Changing trends in diet and lifestyle as well as increased longevity are growing the market for ophthalmological treatments: the global ophthalmic device market is expected to reach $28 billion by 2016 exhibiting a 2.5% compound annual growth rate from 2009 to 2016, according to GBI Research.

Overall, ophthalmologycovers devices, surgical procedures, pharmaceuticals and consumer eye-care goods used in the treatment of eye diseases and infections. Ophthalmology devices are used for a range of key procedures, including vitreoretinal surgery to treat retinal conditions and refractive surgery to restore impaired vision in cases such as hyperopia and myopia. Devices are also used for ophthalmological surgery in the treatment of glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness, and cataracts, the number-one cause of treatable blindness, to replace the natural eye lens with an intraocular lens.

Leading Regional Market

The US currently represents the biggest regional market in the global ophthalmic device industry and is set to reach 27% market share by 2016, at which time it should be worth $7.6 billion in value reports GBI Research. Cataract surgery is the number-one surgical procedure carried out in the US, with 3 million procedures performed annually. According to Medical News Today, more than 20 million individuals over 40 years of age in the US have cataracts, and over 50% of the population could suffer from the condition by the age of 80.

Key Industry Leaders
