Ophthalmology Market Research

The global ophthalmology market witnessed a major downfall during the year 2008 and 2009. However it started to gain its stability with increasing aging population, huge population of patients with vision ailments etc. Moreover every year there has been an increase in number of patients with Glaucoma & Cataract. 48% of the population being totally blind is mainly due to cataract whereas it believed that around 60 million people suffer from glaucoma and this number is expected to reach 80 million by 2020.

According to a newer market research report of BCC the Global Ophthalmic therapeutic drug market was valued at $12.3 billion in 2014. This market is expected to reach $19 billion by 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1% from 2014 to 2019. It was observed that the pharmaceutical industry has evolved rapidly, with leading healthcare providers in the country. Factors that have boosted the overall medical market in Mexico are new regulatory policies, attention to medical studies and R&D, increased expenditure on healthcare infrastructure, starting up new facilities and associations. The global ophthalmology device market was valued at $12,925.6 million in 2011 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% to $18,286.4 million in the year 2018.

Scope and Importance

It was observed that North America followed by Europe and Asia, has the largest share in the global ophthalmology devices market in 2012. The development of new technologies in the area of healthcare has made treatment of eye disorders much safer. Ophthalmic devices have led to better patient outcome, reduced treatment time, lesser discomfort and improved quality care for patients. Demand for the devices has increased in Mexico from patients as well as clinicians at various levels: diagnosis, surgery and vision care.

Funds allocated for Research in Ophthalmology

Grant for Ophthalmology Research Totals $1M Over 9 Years. Research to prevent Blindness (RPB) awarded 36 grants which was a total of $5.4 million during its spring grant cycle. The latest awards include grants to departments of ophthalmology at 17 medical schools across the United States and 19 awards to individual scientists. RPB currently funds eye research at 41 medical institutions throughout the U.S., where RPB-supported laboratories investigate the entire spectrum of eye disease, from cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy to macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and eye movement disorders. Among the newly funded investigations are: the development of a light-activated drug that potentially can arrest progressive ocular growth and macular stretching that occurs in degenerative myopia; the pursuit of less toxic alternatives to currently-used chemotherapy regimens in the treatment of retinoblastoma, an eye cancer that develops in babies; and the complete characterization of early neural changes in diabetics who do not yet show diabetic retinopathy symptoms.

Since it was founded in 1960, RPB has channelled more than $341 million into eye research.  As a result, RPB has been identified with nearly every major breakthrough in vision research in that time. 

 

Why Mexico?

With the increasing number of medical tourists and higher demands for healthcare, Mexico’s ophthalmology and ophthalmic devices market has been escalating. It has been perceived that even though there hasn’t been much information regarding ophthalmic infirmities however, it has been estimated that such problems increases by 50 – 60% every year in Mexico amongst the working individuals. One of the main reasons behind can be the high usage of portable electronic devices like cell phones along with high number of hours working in front of a PC or laptop. Pollution also adds to the same. Women are considered to be more affected in this case due to hormonal imbalances and it is been believed that around 40% of the female population is affected compared with 25% of the male population. According to a report by Euromonitor International it has been described that over a period of time eye care is expected to increase by a value CAGR of 3% at constant 2015 prices, to reach Mx$642 million in 2020. This moderate growth will be driven by the increase in eye problems amongst the population due to adverse effects of technology and pollution.
