EpiCast Report: Glaucoma - Epidemiology Forecast to 2023

Summary

Glaucoma is a common, asymptomatic group of eye diseases that causes damage to the eye’s optic nerve, resulting in progressive, irreversible vision loss. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide, especially in elderly people. Glaucoma is generally categorized as open-angle glaucoma (OAG), angle-closure glaucoma (ACG), secondary glaucoma, and congenital glaucoma. Other less common types of glaucoma include normal-tension glaucoma (NTG), pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, and pigmentary glaucoma (NEI, 2014b). Although there are many types of glaucoma, the two most important types are OAG and ACG, with OAG accounting for about 80-90% of all glaucoma cases (Mayo Clinic, 2014). OAG and ACG can be primary (primary open-angle glaucoma [POAG] and primary angle-closure glaucoma [PACG], respectively) or secondary, depending on the cause.

GlobalData epidemiologists forecast that the total prevalent cases of glaucoma in the 7MM will grow by 14.60% over the next decade, from 13,748,430 total prevalent cases in 2013 to 15,761,674 total prevalent cases in 2023, with almost 60% of the total prevalent cases occurring in the US and Japan together.

The increase in the number of total prevalent cases of glaucoma in the 7MM can be attributed to changing population demographics in the respective markets. However, further epidemiological research is warranted given that there is a paucity of national and international data evaluating the prevalence and trends of glaucoma worldwide. There is also a need to clearly demarcate the glaucoma population in each clinical type, as currently available epidemiological literature fails to clearly demarcate different glaucoma populations.

Scope

- The Glaucoma EpiCast Report provides an overview of the risk factors and global trends of glaucoma in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK). It includes a 10-year epidemiology forecast of total prevalent cases of glaucoma segmented by age (in five-year increments beginning at age 40), sex, clinical type (POAG, PACG, secondary glaucoma, and congenital glaucoma the total prevalent cases of NTG, which is a sub-type of OAG; and the diagnosed prevalent cases of POAG and PACG in these markets.
- The glaucoma epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The EpiCast Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
