Ophthalmic Equipment Market Global Trends, Market Share, Industry Size, Growth, Opportunities and Market Forecast 2020 to 2027

The Global Ophthalmic Equipment is estimated to value over USD 64 billion by 2027 end with a CAGR of over 3.2% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Increasing prevalence of eye related disorders, rising geriatric population and technological advancements are some of the major driving factors accountable for the ophthalmic equipment market growth. Furthermore, there ash been a rise in the number of initiatives being taken by the government organizations in controlling visual impairment, growth in the adoption of spectacles and contact lenses is projected to propel the proliferation of the market.

As per the report published by the Royal National Institute of Blind People, over 2 million people in the United Kingdom has vision impairment and it is expected that this number shall rise to over 4 million by 2050. With such a high prevalence rate of eye related disorders, the insistence for an effective treatment of this disease is expected to rise in the coming years, thus boosting the growth of the market.

However, the instruments that are used in these operations are expensive. As per the report published by the Singapore Eye Research Institute, the femtosecond laser costs over USD 400,000, which is quite expensive and will be unaffordable for healthcare institutions situated in the developing and underdeveloped nations as very few patients will choose femtosecond laser treatment in these regions. Moreover, there is a high possibility that it won’t even cover the installation cost of the laser machine. Similarly, an OCT treatment costs over USD 80,000 which makes it difficult for small-sized diagnostic centres and clinics to buy these devices thus making it a restraining factor for the market growth.
