DUBLIN, August 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Eye Care Surgical Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global eye care surgical market to grow at a CAGR of 10.57% during the period 2016-2020.
One trend that is influencing the market is the advances in laser technology. There has been a shift from open surgical procedures to MI surgeries for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy treatment in the past. Advances in laser technology have brought many new laser types which include pattern scan laser, reduced fluence laser, short-pulse duration, and navigated laser systems for macular edema and proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Advances in laser technologies particularly for IOLs have changed the outlook of the market. The use of femtolaser systems for making incisions during capsulotomy helps reduce human errors. These systems are rapidly being adopted for other ophthalmic surgeries such as cataract operations and keratoplasty.
According to the report, a key driver that will boost growth is the untapped market in emerging countries. Emerging countries represent huge opportunities for the global eye care surgical market. With the increase in the patient population urging for laser surgeries for vision correction, cataract, and glaucoma, the demand for ophthalmic lasers is increasing in emerging countries such as India, China, and South Korea. Growing awareness of ophthalmic diseases and the rise in disposable income among the populations of these countries are expected to steer significantly the market growth. Also, vendors in the market are also expanding their presence in such countries.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the availability of substitutes for retinal surgeries.
