Posted by niket gore on August 2nd, 2022

The corneal transplantation market  is projected to reach US$ US$ 640.79 million by 2028 from US$ 420.71 million in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2021–2028.A cornea transplant (keratoplasty) is a surgical treatment that involves removing a portion of the cornea and replacing it with corneal tissue from a donor. The transparent, dome-shaped surface of the eye is known as the cornea. It is a large aspect of the eye's ability to see clearly because it is where light enters the eye. A cornea transplant can enhance the appearance of a damaged or diseased cornea while also restoring vision and reducing pain.

The growth of the corneal transplantation market is attributed to the increasing incidence of eye diseases, and the rising geriatric population. However, the risks associated with Corneal Transplantation and shortage of donor material hampers the market growth.

Market Insights

Surge in Geriatric Population

The geriatric patient population is growing rapidly worldwide due to a significant rise in the subset of patients older than 80. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 54.1 million people were aged 65 and above in 2019 (up from 39.6 million in 2020). The population will reach 80.8 million by 2040 and 94.7 million by 2060. As the number of geriatric people increases, the demands of this group for healthcare services also continue to grow. The aging of an ocular surface and corneal tissues, and the consequent impairment of visual functions lead to severe eye diseases and a significant impact on vision. The conditions that affect these vital parts of the eye place a critical medical and socioeconomic burden on society. Thus, the increase in the population of elderlies is driving the overall growth of the corneal transplant market.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Corneal Transplantation Market

The global economy was severely affected due to the COVID-19 cases in the region. The rising occurrence rate of coronavirus results in increased stress on the region's healthcare system. During the COVID-19 pandemic, outpatient appointments were avoided as far as possible. This increases the risk of infection for both the patient and the medical staff running the clinic. The COVID-19 pandemic is perplexing healthcare institutions in the region with unprecedented operational and clinical challenges. There has been a shift of priorities from eye disease treatment to COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment devices is leading to a decline in market growth up to a certain extent. Many hospitals and surgical centers had considered cancelling or postponing elective surgeries, including corneal transplantation procedures due to COVID-19. The COVID-19 emergency has undoubtedly aided in encouraging the general population to try out and expand their usage of digital services, particularly to avoid having to visit a health center in person. Corneal donation and transplantation activity dropped substantially when COVID-19 spread rapidly across various regions. Hence, the COVID 19 had somewhat negative impact on the corneal transplantation market before the introduction of COVID-19 vaccine
