PUNE, India, October 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Market research titled EpiCast Report: Glaucoma - Epidemiology Forecast to 2023 states that growth will be driven by the arrival of innovative first-in-class drugs, such as Rhopressa/Roclatan, Vesneo, and trabodenoson, and the introduction of additional fixed-dose combination (FDC) products, such as Tapcom/Taptiqom and Simbrinza, during the forecast period.
Complete report on Glaucoma - Epidemiology Forecast to 2023 spread across 52 pages, supported with 12 tables and 8 figures is now available at http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/epicast-report-glaucoma-epidemiology-forecast-to-2023-market-report.html .
The treatment market for glaucoma will rise in value from $2.4 billion in 2013 to approximately $3 billion by 2023 across the seven major markets (7MM) of the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan, representing a moderate overall Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.4%.
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.
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.
