Overview of the global intraocular lens (IOLs) market

According to IOLs industry analysis, the global intraocular lens (IOLs) market will grow at a CAGR of more than 4% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures is one of the key drivers that spurring the growth of the market. Minimally invasive procedures such as femtosecond laser surgery for laser cataract surgery enhances the safety level, accuracy, and predictability. In addition, the introduction of advanced femtosecond laser helps in the use of the hand-held surgical tool. As a result, several surgeons have started performing laser procedures on their patients because it increases the accuracy, correctness, and reproducibility. Patients highly prefer MI procedures because they improve the visual results of the cataract surgery and reduces the level of risk. This, in turn, will drive the popularity of intraocular lens because they involve MI procedures to treat the conditions of the eye such as cataract and myopia.

In terms of geography, the Americas accounted for the maximum market shares during 2016. The market will continue to grow until the end of 2021 because of the adoption rate of micro-incision surgery and femtosecond lasers are high in the Americas. This, in turn, will boost the preference for intraocular lens among patients.
