Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (Ovd) Market Growth And Trends Analysis By Types (Cohesive Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (Ovds), Dispersive Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices (Ovds)) By Application (Cataract Surgery, Glaucoma Surgery, Corneal Transplantation, Vitreoretinal Surgery) By End-User (Ophthalmic Clinics & Phaco Centers, Hospitals, Academic & Research Institutes) – Global Forecast Till 2027
Ophthalmic viscoelastic devices are fundamental tools that are used in cataract surgery. They are designed to protect and coat delicate intraocular tissues and improve visualization. The global Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Devices Market Size is anticipated to reach USD 1,203.26 Mn at a CAGR of 11.6% by the end of the forecast period of 2017-2027, predicts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an in-depth study.
A substantial rise in the number of ophthalmic surgeries is a key factor influencing the growth of the global ophthalmic viscoelastic devices market. An increasing number of eye disorders require surgery which generates high demand for OVDs. As per a report published by Novartis healthcare in 2015, almost 4 Mn cataract surgeries are performed in the US every year. OVDs make phacoemulsification easier and safer and thus have become standard in ophthalmic surgeries. OVDs are used separately or in a combination of both cohesive and dispersive. High prevalence of visual impairment and expanding healthcare expenditure is adding fuel to the growth of the market. Growing geriatric population and increase in the number of diabetic patients have also contributed significantly to the market growth.
Advancement in material science and development of better OVDs have demonstrated a high success rate in ophthalmic surgeries. In addition, improving reimbursement scenario and spreading awareness is expected to foster the growth of the market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, among factors which can affect the market growth negatively include complications associated with the removal of OVDs. OVDs, especially the dispersive ones can be hard to remove since they tend to spread out and coat the ocular structures. OVDs are subject to stringent FDA clinical evidence and testing requirements which are becoming tightened gradually. Lack of general awareness among people regarding eye disorders is also likely to constrain market growth over the forecast period.
