Market Size and Forecast (2016-2024)

Increasing frequency of eye-related disorders, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy are impacting the demand for ophthalmic diagnostic equipment across the globe. Global ophthalmic diagnostic equipment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.30% over the forecast period of 2016-2024.

North America has dominated ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market with over 33% value share in 2016 and is expected to remain dominant region throughout the forecast period. Developed nations such as Germany, France, Spain, Singapore and Japan together accounted for nearly 40% revenue share of global ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market.

Rising awareness about the need for early detection of refractive errors amongst physicians is fuelling the demand for ophthalmic diagnostic equipments in Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market is projected to expand at notable pace mainly due to large population base in countries such as China and India. India is home for approximately 30 percent of the world’s blind population which is creating a huge necessity for ophthalmic care in the region.

Around 40% of blind cases in Africa are caused due to cataract. More than 60% of the populations in Africa are suffering from visual impairment and blindness as they do not wear glasses. Low income of the nation and lack of medical facilities in Africa and Latin America is hindering the growth of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market in the region.

Market Drivers and Challenge

Participation of public in health discussion and making favorable decision is increasing awareness amongst consumers about the early detection of visual impairments and refractive errors. Growing health awareness, less painful treatment and quicker eye surgery are key factors accelerating the growth of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market.

One of the biggest challenges for the growth of ophthalmic diagnostic device is their longevity. Ophthalmic device are likely to be replaced if any new device or technology is introduced into the market. This is restraining the adoption of advance ophthalmic devices in developing nations. High initial cost, lack of awareness and availability of advance technologies mainly in tropical countries are also hindering the growth of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment market.
