This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global cataract devices market by product type (IOLs, OVDs, phacoemulsification devices, and femtosecond lasers), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The top vendor identified in the market are Abbott Medical Optics, Alcon, Bausch and Lomb, and HOYA.

Outlook of the cataract devices market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global cataract devices market to grow at a moderate CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period. Factors like the rising incidence of cataract and an increasingly older population are expected to propel the market for cataract devices globally during the forecast period. The number people with cataract will increase as the world population ages. With aging, certain parts of the eye develop less elasticity, affecting the normal functioning of the eyes. As most ophthalmic diseases occur after the age of 40, the rise in older population worldwide will positively influence the global cataract devices market in coming years.

In this industry report, analysts have estimated factors like the increasing awareness programs about the availability of advanced surgical procedures for cataract to propel the growth prospects of the market for cataract devices in the predicted period. These awareness programs are organized by various governmental and non-governmental organizations and vendors. For instance, WHO and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness together held the VISION 2020, to boost awareness about cataract. Such programs help increase awareness about the various treatments available for eyesight disorders and encouraging the use of ophthalmic drugs and devices at a global level.
