Market Overview

The global posterior segment eye disorders market is projected to grow with a CAGR of nearly 6.5% over the forecast period. The market growth is due to an increase in increasing burden of eye disorders such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and other retinal disorders. In addition, advancements in diagnostic technologies and R&D of new therapeutics for the treatment of these disorders are anticipated to boost the market growth.

According to The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, glaucoma is the third leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Due to the growing awareness on the burden of glaucoma and other diseases, the market is expected to grow at significant rates. Moreover, the age-related macular degeneration is more common among the people over 60 years. The ageing population and awareness on early diagnosis and treatment of the eye diseases are some of the factors that are anticipated to bolster the market growth over the forecast period. However, the poor primary healthcare infrastructure in underdeveloped and developing countries is anticipated to hinder the market growth.
