Market Trends of Glaucoma Treatment Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Glaucoma Treatment Market according to our research experts:

Prostaglandin Analogs is the Segment by Drug Class that is Expected to Witness Fastest Growth Over the Forecast Period

Prostaglandin analogs work by increasing the outflow of intraocular fluid from the eye. They have few systemic side effects but are associated with changes to the eye itself, including change in iris color and growth of eyelashes. Depending on the individual, one brand of this type of medication may be more effective and produce fewer side effects. 

Prostaglandin analogs are taken as eye drops. They are effective at reducing intraocular pressure in people who have open-angle glaucoma. Latanoprost and some formulations of bimatoprost and travoprost are now available in generic form. Tafluprost is a preservative-free prostaglandin analog.

The demand for these drugs is expected to rise as the incidence of glaucoma has increased over the past few years due to the aging population. Moreover, the incidence of the disease is expected to increase in the future as the population aged 60 years and over are expected to increase from 12.7% in 2017 to 21.3% by 2050, as per a 2017 report by the United Nations. Increasing geriatric population is expected to increase the prevalence of glaucoma, as the disaese is more prevalent in the elderly. Hence the demand for Prostaglandin Analogs is also expected to increase, which will boost the market growth.
