Vision Disorders Market Overview

Vision Disorders Market Size is estimated to reach $47.4 billion by 2027. Furthermore, it is poised to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. Vision Disorders are defined as any impairment in the normal sense of vision. Myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, conjunctivitis, cataract, corneal abrasion, entropion, and glaucoma are only a few of the vision diseases that impact the vast majority of the world's population. The majority of vision impairments are caused by poor nutrition, different diseases, severe eye injury, insertion of foreign objects, and advancing age. Despite tremendous advances in preventing and curing visual impairment in many countries over the last two decades, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 285 million people worldwide are still visually impaired in 2013. According to the WHO, simple eye examinations such as aberrant blinking frequency, pupil size, and eye color can heal 80 percent of visually impaired patients. Clinical and retinal examinations such as corneal topography, keratometry, pachymetry, fluorescein angiography, Indocyanine Green study (ICG) dye test, and other related studies can confirm the diseases. Ignorance and neglect, on the other hand, might result in serious eye issues or irreversible vision loss. In 2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published research estimating that around 14 million Americans over the age of twelve were affected by various vision impairments, eyeglasses, and contact lenses are generally used in eyesight. Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are a type of advanced soft contact lens that allows more oxygen to pass through to the cornea than traditional soft ("hydrogel") contacts.

Visually significant cataracts, for example, occurred 14 years earlier in an Indian study than in a comparable study in the United States. The age-adjusted prevalence of cataracts in India was three times that of the United States, with 82 percent of Indians aged 75 to 83 years old having visually significant cataracts or aphakia, compared to 46 percent of those aged 75 to 85 years in the United States (senile lens changes associated with a visual acuity of 6/9 or worse, or a history of cataract extraction). Moreover, at the same point, glaucoma prevalence is also increasing. Hence, cataracts and glaucoma are expected to propel the market of eye disorders in the forecast period 2022-2027.

Vision Disorders Market Segment Analysis – By Drug class

Vision Disorders Market based on Drug class can be further segmented into Anti-allergy, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), Anti-glaucoma, Antibacterial, and Others. The Risk Management & Safety Solution segment held a dominant market share in the year 2021 and is estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. Owing to the increasing prevalence of eye diseases especially age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Anti-VEGF drugs prevent aberrant blood vessels from leaking, developing, and bleeding beneath the retina. The protein vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) encourages the formation of new blood vessels. It also renders blood vessels more prone to leakage. Anti-VEGF drugs block the formation of new blood vessels. Anti-VEGF medication has been approved for age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, and myopic choroidal neovascularization in the treatment of vascular and exudative diseases of the retina. Lucentis (ranibizumab) and Avastin are the two most extensively utilized medications at the moment (bevacizumab). Both medications are monoclonal antibodies that attach to each of the three types of VEGF, hence expanding the segment growth.

Vision Disorders Market Segmentation Analysis- By Geography

Vision Disorders Market Drivers

Pharmaceutical businesses in the ophthalmic field are embarking on strategic efforts that are propelling the market forward

Ophthalmic pharmaceutical firms are pursuing strategic efforts such as collaborations, acquisitions, and partnerships to add new clinical-stage prospects to their product pipelines, which is projected to enhance the market. Rising ophthalmic pharmaceutical business owing to increasing prevalence of eye disorders. According to the World Health Organization, over 2.2 billion individuals will have a vision impairment or blindness in 2021, with at least 1 billion of those having a vision impairment that can be avoided. Those with limited or severe vision impairment due to unresolved refractive error (123.7 million), cataract (65.2 million), glaucoma (6.9 million), corneal opacities (4.2 million), diabetic retinopathy (3 million), and trachoma (2 million), as well as those with imminent vision impairment due to unspecified presbyopia (1.2 billion) (826 million). The growing senior population is exacerbating the prevalence of ocular illnesses, with uncorrected refractive errors and cataracts being the leading causes of vision impairment. The majority of people with vision problems are above the age of 50, enhancing the Vision Disorders Industry.

Rising prevalence of lifestyle changing diseases, especially diabetes is driving the Market for Vision Disorders

According to CDC, in 2021, Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common diabetic condition. It is the primary cause of blindness in adults in the United States. Progressive damage of the blood vessels of the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that is required for good vision, characterizes it. Mild nonproliferative retinopathy (microaneurysms), moderate nonproliferative retinopathy (blockage in some retinal vessels), severe nonproliferative retinopathy (more vessels are blocked, depriving the retina of blood supply, resulting in the formation of new blood vessels), and proliferative retinopathy (growth of new blood vessels) are the four stages of DR (most advanced stage). Both eyes are generally affected by diabetic retinopathy.

Disease management, which includes adequate control of blood sugar, blood pressure, and lipid abnormalities, reduce the risk of DR. Early detection and treatment of DR lessen the risk of vision loss; nevertheless, up to 50% of patients do not have their eyes tested or are detected too late for effective therapy. It is the primary cause of blindness among working-age adults in the United States, ages 20 to 74. Retinopathy and vision-threatening retinopathy impact an estimated 4.1 million and 899,000 Americans, respectively, thereby driving the market growth.

Vision Disorders Market Challenges

The increasing number of blockbuster medicine patents expiring is projected to stifle Market growth of Vision Disorders

Pharmaceutical businesses will lose exclusivity when their patents expire, but medication producers will be granted new chances and difficulties as the generic competition enters the market.
