Prices are expected to remain stable over the forecast period due to the maturity of the market and the high level of competition among manufacturers to win over new customers. Growth in ASP is driven by the increasing popularity of three-in-one combination devices that feature pachymetry or tonometry capabilities in addition to the standard functionality. The higher price of these units is driving growth in the overall market.

Autorefractors (ARs) and keratometers (KRs) are commonly sold together in a combined unit. Combination devices, which consist of an AR and a KR integrated in a single unit, are increasing in popularity in the ophthalmic device market, currently accounting for a majority of units sold. In addition, a number of products now offer AR/KRs combined with a third modality, most commonly non-contact tonometry or pachymetry. This is particularly true in the corporate, chain store setting where business models are focused on workflow efficiency and high patient turnover.
