Ophthalmic Device Market Analysis, Size, Trends | United States | 2017-2023 | MedSuite (Includes 13 Reports)

  • Year: 2017
  • Scope: 2013-2023
  • Region: United States
  • Pages: 451

Overall, the U.S. market for  ophthalmic devices was valued at $674.8 million in 2016. This is expected to increase over the forecast period at a CAGR of 3.6% to reach $863.2 million.

The retinal imaging device category represented the fastest growing segments in the overall diagnostic ophthalmic device market in 2016. This category was also the largest, and thereby the retinal imaging device segments drove growth in the overall market. Retinal imaging devices, which includes OCTs, fundus cameras and ophthalmic data management systems, grew by 6.3% in 2016. This growth is primarily accounted for by rapid expansion in the sales of OCTs. OCTs are a relatively new technology and are still being implemented in new settings across the United States.

Major Segments Covered in the Ophthalmic Device Market Report Suite

While this report suite contains all US peripheral vascular device data, each of the markets are also available as stand alone MedCore reports. This allows you to get access to only the Ophthalmic Devices market research that you need. You can view all these included reports and segmentation here:

  • Optical Coherence Tomography Market – MedCore: The market for OCTs includes devices that perform posterior segment imaging. These devices are used for specifically imaging the retina. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography offers physicians a method for imaging the cornea, as well as other anterior segments of the eye in high-resolution cross-sectional and three-dimensional images.
  • Fundus Cameras Market – MedCore: This market includes mydriatic and non-mydriatic fundus cameras. Each of the segments are further divided into table mounted and handheld devices. Fundus cameras that were combined with OCT’s are excluded from this analysis.
  • Ophthalmic Data Management Systems Market – MedCore: Ophthalmic data management systems are diagnostic information and patient profile solutions that allow the practitioner to store, access, and review information in an efficient and clinically meaningful way. The systems allow practitioners to display and compare reports from a single diagnostic tool over an extended period of the patient’s history.
  • Slit Lamps Market – MedCore: This market includes handheld slit lamps and table mounted slit lamps. Slit lamps are binocular microscopes that are coupled with illumination systems. Slit lamps are used for diagnosing a wide variety of eye conditions including cataracts, corneal injuries, retinal detachment, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, retinitis pigmentosa and uveitis.
  • Perimeters Market – MedCore: Perimetry tests are relatively simple, non-invasive procedures and are often performed by technicians. There are two types of perimetry tests: kinetic (Goldmannn) perimetry and threshold static automated perimetry.
  • Tonometers Market – MedCore: This market includes non-contact and contact tonometers. A tonometer is a device that is used for measuring the intraocular pressure of an eye. Elevated intraocular pressure is associated with glaucoma, a disease that is characterized by the degeneration of the optic nerve.
  • Autorefractors and Keratometers Market – MedCore: Keratometers (KRs), also called ophthalmometers, are devices that are used for determining the curvature of the anterior surface of the cornea. From this, astigmatism, or a deviation from the ideal geometry, can be diagnosed and quantified.
  • Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopes Market – MedCore: Binocular indirect ophthalmoscopes (BIOs) are used by all optometrists and ophthalmologists and are needed in every practice, as well as in every lane of a practice.
  • Ophthalmic Ultrasound Devices Market – MedCore: The market for ophthalmic ultrasound devices consists of five segments: pachymeters, A-Scan, B-Scan, A/B-Scan and ultrasound biomicroscopes (UBMs).
  • Wavefront Aberrometers Market – MedCore: Aberrometry is especially useful for higher-order refractive errors and lenticular changes that cannot ordinarily be detected by routine ophthalmic exams. These include spherical and coma aberrations, which cause halos or comet-like streaks around light foci. There are two main types of wavefront aberrometers, the Shack-Hartmann and the ray-tracing type.
  • Corneal Topographers Market – MedCore: There are two main types of corneal topographers: Placido ring topographers and Schiempflug cameras. Placido ring topographers detect aberrations in the shapes of concentric rings that are reflected off of the patient’s cornea to a camera. Placido ring topographers provide excellent data for the peripheral regions of the cornea.
  • Optical Biometry Market – MedCore: Optical biometers are partial coherence interferometry devices designed to generate a range of biometry measurements as well as to assist with intraocular lens (IOL) calculations. Optical biometers are capable of taking multiple measurements including axial length, anterior chamber depth, corneal thickness and lens thickness.

Ophthalmic Device Market Share Analysis

The top competitors in the U.S. market for diagnostic ophthalmic devices, such as Carl Zeiss and Topcon, have managed to hold large shares in the OCT market and have been able to diversify across a significant number of diagnostic markets. OCT’s are currently the largest segment of the diagnostic ophthalmic device market, accounting for over a third of total revenues. Thus by specializing in this market a company can control a bulk of the total market share. The top competitors are effective at bundling multiple devices together. They accomplish this through relationships with buyers, optimizing product lines to work well with one another, and providing discounts for purchasing multiple product lines. An example of this would be the bundling of slit lamps and perimeters or an OCT and a fundus camera. Top competitors in this market tend to have local sales forces on location across the U.S. as opposed to the use of distributors. This has to do with distributors having more products to attend to as well as purchasers preferring to deal directly with the company. Local sales forces are also associated with better customer support.
