Ophthalmic Lasers Market: Technological Growth Map over Time

Posted by Akshay Solanki on December 2nd, 2021

Technological advancements have deeply penetrated every facet of the healthcare industry, and the ophthalmic lasers market is no exception. Over the years, ophthalmic disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, refractive errors, glaucoma, cataract and age related macular degeneration (AMD) have surged exponentially. This has accelerated demand for advanced surgical procedures.
 
The introduction of ophthalmic laser surgery has revolutionized ophthalmic care in unprecedented ways. Majority of these technologies are being deployed in cataract surgeries, attributed to the disorder’s widespread prevalence across all continents. Advancements such femtosecond laser surgeries have proven highly instrumental in streamlining ophthalmic procedures, offering lightning speed detection of faulty tissues.
 
 
Such reduced detection and treatment timeframes act as major growth catalysts for the global ophthalmic lasers market, which is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 1.3 Bn by 2030.
 
Ophthalmic Lasers Market- Key Highlights
 
  • Ophthalmic lasers market shall expand steadily at a CAGR of 5% from 2020-2030
  • Cataract surgeries shall account for the majority share of the global ophthalmic lasers market
  • Femtosecond laser surgery to hold maximum sway throughout the forecast period
  • North America shall retain market hegemony, owing to increasing regulatory approvals for laser surgeries by authorities
  • Asia & Europe to contribute nearly identical revenue shares due to rise in surgeries amidst their geriatric population
 
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
 
The novel coronavirus pandemic will have a significantly high impact on the ophthalmic lasers market. As lockdowns and curbs continue to remain enforced, the number of footfalls across ophthalmology clinics and hospitals have declined considerably. Patient care has diminished by nearly 60%, with only emergency surgeries being permitted.
 
With in-patient visits becoming next to impossible, ophthalmologists are resorting to telemedicine with regards to consultation and advice to patients. A slump is anticipated in refractive and premium lens surgeries across developing economies in the long-run, attributed to cash crunches experienced by individual households due to the prolonged lockdowns.
 
At the same time, several countries are enforcing strict social distancing protocols and hygiene practices, keeping demand for ophthalmic laser surgeries sustained. For instance, ophthalmologists in Germany have made it a protocol to test patients requiring intravitreal injections and other procedures for COVID-19. If positive, they are redirected to emergency departments, reducing chances of infection.
