The ophthalmic devices market is continually being enhanced by innovative devices and technologies designed to meet an increasing worldwide demand for economical solutions to eye disorders such as cataracts, refractor disorders and others. As the prevalence of diseases affecting the eye increases across the globe, the market is expected to continue to grow steadily through the coming years.

Growth Factors and Limitations

Even though demand is expected to increase as the world population ages, due to factors such as greater acceptance of minimally invasive eye procedures such as LASIK, there are some limiting factors as well. One of the most important is the fact that many ophthalmic devices are extremely expensive — especially those that need to be exported. In addition, there is a need for qualified ophthalmic doctors in emerging countries, which could also hinder growth in certain geographical reasons.

Overall, however, the outlook should remain positive for the foreseeable future. Increasing demand for surgical procedures, as well as better patient outcomes associated with these surgeries, should continue to drive the market.
