Industry Trends

Currently in the U.S. opthalmic device market, competition is limited from manufacturers that are either new or trying to expand into the U.S. market. Many ophthalmic device manufacturers have recently entered the market. Some of these companies are based in Italy, Japan and China, and severely undercut the prices in order to gain market share. The lower pricing and reduction in market share results in an overall adjustment in the ASPs. This is evident in the ophthalmic ultrasound and fundus camera markets, where Chinese and Italian manufacturers are entering the market with lower cost options.

In the European opthalmic market, a major driver is corrective eye surgery. Corrective surgeries are responsible for a large portion of market growth. These surgeries directly drive the intraocular lense (IOL), ophthalmic viscoelastic device (OVD), and ophthalmic laser markets. Because this is such a large market, corrective surgeries are also a driving force for the development and sale of other diagnostic and surgical equipment such as phacoemulsification consoles, corneal topographers, and optical biometers all of which are used in either diagnosis of refractive conditions or surgery

A major trend in the European ophthalmic market is the consolidation of multiple pieces of equipment into singular devices. This is being driven by a desire to increase space and cost effectiveness of devices for ophthalmologists. While for the manufacturer this ensures that instead of a buyer buying one device from them and another from a different company they are paying for one more expensive device that covers all.

Ophthalmic Device Market Share Insights

The top competitors in the U.S. and European markets for 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.

Other players in these markets include: Optovue, Heidelberg Engineering, Canon, Merge Healthcare, Haag-Streit, Nidek, Synemed, iCare, Reichert, Keeler, Heine USA, Sonomed, Quantel, Accutome, Alcon, Oculus, Zeimer Ophthalmic, CSO and others.
