Fastest Growing Market:
The ophthalmology drug and device market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the growth of the market include demographic shift, the impact of the prevalence of eye disease, technological advancements in the field of ophthalmology, and rising geriatric population. The aging population is expected to burden all areas of health care, and ophthalmologists provide approximately 90% of their procedure-based services to seniors. In many countries, cataract surgery is the most frequent surgical procedure performed, and it offers significant improvements in the quality of life of the elderly population at low costs. An increase in the demand for ophthalmological devices projects the future cataract surgery needs that are vital for human health resources and hospitals, and for surgical center management and planning. Other factors, such as the availability of new drugs and devices and the prevalence of eye disease, are also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye. Scope of the market studied includes the types of drugs and devices that are being used to treat or diagnose diseases associated with eye.

Based on Disease, the market is segmented into Glaucoma, Cataract, Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Inflammatory Diseases, Refractive Disorders and Others. According to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, around 330,000 cataract operations are performed each year in England alone. The same source has stated that around 30% of people aged 65 years or more have a visually impairing cataract in one or both eyes. Some people tend to have a much higher prevalence of cataracts. For instance, 77% of the British people, aged 42 years or older, originating from the Indian subcontinent have cataracts. There is a threefold variation in the number of people having cataract surgery across England, owing to differences in health commissioning policies.
Similarly, as per American Academy of Ophthalmology, it is estimated that by 2050, around 50 million people in the United States are expected to suffer from cataract, which is one of the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Cataract surgery remains the most effective way to help restore vision for the people with cataracts. Hence, with the rising burden of eye disease, the market is expected to grow in the forecast period
