Key Drivers of Ophthalmic Devices, Diagnostics and Surgical Equipment: Global Markets

The Increasing Number of Elderly Individuals Worldwide: The global population of individuals aged 65 and older is on a steady rise, from 703 million in 2019 to a projected 1.5 billion by 2050. This demographic shift significantly amplifies the demand for ophthalmic products as aging individuals are more prone to developing a spectrum of eye diseases and conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Consequently, there emerges a substantial market potential for ophthalmic devices and equipment to cater to the diagnosis and treatment needs of this aging population segment.

Rising Eye Disorders: In addition to the effects of aging, various factors contribute to the escalating prevalence of eye disorders globally. These factors encompass genetics, lifestyle choices, environmental exposures, and the presence of chronic diseases. Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that approximately 2.2 billion people worldwide suffer from vision impairment or blindness, with at least 1 billion individuals experiencing preventable or unaddressed vision impairments. This underscores a significant unmet need for ophthalmic diagnosis and treatment, emphasizing the critical role of ophthalmic devices and equipment in addressing these prevalent eye health concerns.

Digital Device Usage and Environmental Factors: The widespread adoption of digital devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and TVs, has contributed to a surge in eye-related issues such as eye strain, dry eye, and computer vision syndrome. These conditions adversely affect visual quality and often necessitate corrective measures like specialized lenses or eye drops. Furthermore, environmental factors such as air pollution, ultraviolet radiation exposure, and the effects of climate change pose additional challenges to eye health, increasing the risk of eye infections and allergies. Consequently, there emerges a heightened demand for ophthalmic devices and equipment capable of safeguarding, enhancing, or restoring vision amidst these evolving digital and environmental landscapes.
