This factor is anticipated to positively influence the global ophthalmic knife industry in near future.
Increasing application of disposable ophthalmic knives in minimally invasive surgeries for the treatment of diseases such as glaucoma and cataract is majorly driving the growth. Increasing adoption of affordable and disposable knives over reusable knives is creating significant growth opportunities for new market entrants.
The straight knives segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2020 to 2026. The straight ophthalmic knife has the benefit of single-handed blade retraction. These possess superior sharpness and are also available in double bevel type. The metal blades in straight knives are disposable, which is driving their popularity over reusable blades owing to advantages such as minimal cross-infection risks and affordability.
The availability of a wide range of designs is expected to increase the applications of ophthalmic knives. Slit knives segment is expected to experience steep growth due to their increasing applications for entry in anterior chamber/phaco stab incision (single bevel) in ophthalmic surgical procedures.
Furthermore, slit ophthalmic knives are light in weight, easy to handle fur physicians, and have blunt tips that offer seamless finishing. They are specially designed to efficiently cut the required width for an intraocular lens.
Disposable ophthalmic knives segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period owing to increasing adoption over reusable products.
Single-use ophthalmic knives significantly minimize the risk of cross-infection. Additionally, minimal risks pertaining to wear and tear of blades are also expected to drive the demand for the product in the near future.
Reusable knives offer great durability since they are manufactured from superior and precision-engineered materials, which also help the physicians to reuse several times. However, factors such as high device price and costly sterilization procedures are some of the factors which are expected to impede segment growth during the forecast period.
An increasing number of ophthalmic surgeries, improving healthcare facilities, favorable reimbursement policies are some of the factors driving the growth of the hospital segment at a lucrative pace during the forecast period.
Clinics segment is expected to witness significant CAGR in the forthcoming years due to increasing number of ophthalmologists and optometrists offering individual clinical services. Moreover, growing awareness for eye disorders and the contribution of non-profit organizations including Rotary International is expected to boost the segment growth.
The high burden on hospital-acquired infectious diseases is expected to fuel the use of disposable ophthalmic knives in hospitals. Most hospitals in developed countries have central sterile services departments for common sterilization procedures. However, costs incurred in the sterilization of small-sized reusable devices are comparatively higher as than buying disposable devices. In order to minimize the healthcare service, hospitals are opting for disposable devices over reusable.
North America captured the largest ophthalmic knives market share in 2018. The presence of major market players, favorable reimbursement scenario, and rising trends of disposable knives are some of the factors expected to play an important role in regional market dynamics. The region is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to register a CAGR of around 7.03% during the forecast years. Increasing demand for advanced ophthalmic knives and a significant rise in the number of local market players in countries such as China, India, and South Korea are some of the factors driving regional growth.
