Global Ophthalmology Devices Market Set to Grow at 7.3% CAGR
The ophthalmology devices studied and segmented in this report are as per their usage in the diagnosis and treatment of eye related diseases and that are cataract, refractive error and other retinal disorders. The devices analyzed are Intra Ocular Lens (Cataract), Phacoemulsification Systems (Cataract), Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) (Refractive Error), Contact Lens (Refractive Error) and Vitrectomy Systems (Other Retinal Disorders). The total market for the above mentioned devices/equipments is estimated to be ~ $11.3 billion in 2009, growing at a CAGR of 7.3%. Alcon, (U.S.), Bausch & Lomb, (U.S.), Abbott Medical Optics (U.S.), Johnson & Johnson (U.S), are the leading players in the global ophthalmology devices market.
The cataract surgery devices market is estimated at ~ $4.4 billion in 2009 with intraocular lens market comprising ~ 77% of the entire cataract surgery market and growing the fastest with a CAGR of ~ 8.5%. The phacoemulsification market is relatively steady and growing at a rate of 6.8% and is valued at ~ $1 billion in 2009. The refractive error market is estimated at ~ $ 6.7 billion in 2009, with the contact lens market valued at ~ 85% of the total refractive error market and growing at a CAGR of 7.5%.
Global Ophthalmology devices market, by products
The contact lens market contributes the highest amongst the ophthalmology devices market with a share of ~ 48%, followed by IOLs (Intraocular lens) with 28%.
The U.S. commands the largest share of the global ophthalmology devices market, primarily due to high patient awareness, quality of healthcare services, and systemized reimbursement structure. Technological developments such as femtosecond lasers are also gaining popularity due to the greater patient comfort they facilitate over conventional lasers; and because they enable customized treatment based on the individual eye dimensions of each patient.
The ophthalmology devices market witnessed an increase in new product launches in the year 2009. The total number of ophthalmology device patents filed globally dipped in the year 2008, and rose again in 2009 due to increased R&D activity in the market.
