Ophthalmology Devices Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a positive impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increasing prevalence of ophthalmic diseases and technological advances in ophthalmology devices is notably driving the ophthalmology market growth, although factors such as high cost and limited reimbursement may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the ophthalmology devices industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Ophthalmology Devices Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the ophthalmology devices market growth is the technological advances in ophthalmology devices. Technological innovations in ophthalmology devices have transformed the ophthalmology sector, with continuous advances in ophthalmic surgical technologies, ocular imaging, measuring, and lenses. For instance, contact lenses have undergone improvements such as the development of new contact lens materials, lens designs, and solution formulations. Low-cost manufacturing has made daily disposable contact lenses accessible to many people. Today, contact lenses are available in numerous brands, materials, lens designs, and wear schedules and can meet every individual need. Modern contact lenses have overcome many limitations of design and offer superior benefits to wearers, such as improved comfort, safety, and vision correction. Contact lens materials had also improved significantly in the past few years. Previously, soft contact lenses were made of plastic polymers. In modern contact lens materials, silicone is incorporated into the polymer, which allows more oxygen permeability to the cornea, providing superior comfort and wearability.

Key Ophthalmology Devices Market Trend

Another key factor driving the ophthalmology devices market growth is the increasing medical tourism for low-cost ophthalmology surgeries. Medical tourism refers to patients traveling to other countries to obtain medical treatment with high quality of healthcare, low costs, favorable exchange rates, short waiting time, and accessibility benefits. Patients from developed countries such as the US and Canada travel to developing countries such as Singapore, India, Mexico, South Korea, and Thailand as they offer high-quality medical services at a low cost, have accredited hospitals and healthcare systems, and provide different treatments. For instance, in ophthalmology, there is a high demand for cataract surgery, LASIK procedures, glaucoma procedures, and refractive procedures, including corneal laser surgery, phakic IOLs, and lens surgery, which require premium devices. Hence, patients opt for treatment procedures in low-cost countries. India is the leading country for medical tourism as it has the advanced infrastructure, technology, and well-trained surgeons.

Key Ophthalmology Devices Market Challenge

High cost and limited reimbursement is one of the key challenges hindering the ophthalmology devices market growth. Despite significant advantages, the adoption of advanced ophthalmic devices is limited, owing to the high cost and inadequate or limited reimbursement coverage. The cost of ophthalmic lenses has significantly increased with advances in technology. The cost varies depending on the type of lens. For instance, the cost of HD spectacle glass lenses is 25%-30% more than traditional spectacle glass lenses. The cost of multifocal glasses is approximately 30% higher than single vision glasses. The cost of progressive glass lenses is double the cost of single vision glasses. The cost further increases with non-glare coatings and changeable tint lenses. The annual cost of daily disposable soft contact lenses, toric contact lenses, and bifocal contact lenses is two to three times higher than the annual cost of normal disposable soft contact lenses, which must be replaced every two weeks. The cost burden further increases with the cost of contact lens solutions.

This ophthalmology devices market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2020-2024.
