The global Ophthalmic Loupes market size is expected to be worth around US$ 668.5 million by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Ophthalmic Loupes market size was valued at US$ 399.7 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
The growing prevalence of different eye diseases such glaucoma, cataract, and refractive errors is main factor expected to drive the overall market growth. Additionally, the growing usage of ophthalmic loupes in performing surgeries and for dental procedures due to its ability to provide higher magnification is expected to contribute towards the market growth.
Ophthalmic loupes are considered as an affordable alternative to operating microscope and helps the ophthalmologists in effectively studying eye diseases during the surgery. Ophthalmologists undergo back and neck pain while performing surgeries as they bend more to see the area of operation properly. Therefore, to avoid this pain the ophthalmologists and even clinicians are opting for the medical device. These eyeglasses are designed considering interpupillary distance, angle of declination, and working distance, that helps in maintaining the posture of the medical professional while performing the treatment.
Magnification eyeglasses are designed according to specific procedures. Galilean type telescope helps in small surgeries and are handy. Despite of its small size it comes in various magnification range from 1.7x to 3.0x. Similarly, for complicated surgeries, medical professionals required higher magnification eyeglasses and thus prefer prismatic type. Prismatic telescope provides enhanced magnification up to 8x for better treatment.
Galilean type segment held the largest share of 38.3% in 2020. Galilean type loupes feature different lenses like concave eyepiece lens and convex objective lens. Both of these lenses help in delivering a clear image in comparison to a single lens. Additionally, usage of this type helps in providing ample width and depth of field.
Prismatic type is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate of 9.7%, during the forecast period. Prismatic type ophthalmic loupes are heavier and longer which incorporates prism to reorient inverted images. They provide better clarity and higher magnification. Additionally, this type feature two or more convex lenses and comes in different magnification ranges, ranging from 3.5x to 6.0x. Some of the prismatic type provide up to 8.0x loupe magnification.
The TTL segment dominated the market and held the largest revenue share of 59.5% in 2020. TTL loupes are also called ‘front-mounted loupes’ or FLM. In this type, the lens is mounted on the frame and is custom made based on the Pupillary Distance (PD). Also, the angle of declination of these loupes is fixed at the steepest angle considering the ergonomic posture needed. These loupes are widely used and adopted in various settings.
Flip-up loupes are expected to grow at the fastest rate of 9.8% during the forecast period. These loupes come along with a hinge mechanism which helps in offering adjustable pupillary distance and angle of declination. Various advantages associated with flip-up such as lower price, a greater angle of declination, and can be moved out of sight once its work is done, is expected to drive the segment growth during the forecast period. Moreover, this loupe design can cater to multiple users as it comes with the property of adjusting PD.
Hospitals held the largest revenue share of 41.5% in 2020 mainly due to the increasing number of ophthalmic surgeries for correcting cataract, glaucoma, and refractive disorders. Rising incidence of eye-related conditions and the introduction of advanced minimally invasive surgeries are the factors driving the segment growth. Usage of ophthalmic loupes in hospitals helps the ophthalmologists by providing enhanced and magnified vision for an effective treatment process.
ASCs act as a modern healthcare facility, which provides same-day surgical care at a lower cost with quality outcomes. The number of ophthalmic surgeries performed in ASCs is increasing steeply, thereby, is expected to drive the need for ophthalmic loupes in the setting. Ophthalmic loupes help in providing accurate diagnosis of the diseases and better field of view while operating, hence, these loupes are expected to show high demand in ASCs.
North America dominated the ophthalmic loupes market and held the largest revenue share of 26.5% in 2020 owing to the presence of a large number of market players in the region. Most of the players such as Ocutech Inc., SHEERVISION, and SurgiTel are headquartered in the U.S. and are developing advanced ophthalmic loupes. Additionally, these players provide service programs to increase awareness regarding the importance of the loupes, its maintenance, and its improvement services.
Europe is also expected to follow North America in terms of market share. Many players are present in the region such as Keeler, ZEISS, Rudolf Riester GmbH, and Univet S.r.l. These players develop advanced frames and different magnification type loupes such as prismatic type and Galilean type to provide comfort and better vision to users. Additionally, the growing prevalence of eye diseases is also expected to contribute towards the market growth in Europe. As per the WHO, in 2020, glaucoma-related blindness is expected to rise up to 13.10%.
Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate of 7.8% during the forecast period. Players such as NEITZ INSTRUMENTS offer technologically advanced loupes. In addition, the company allows the users to choose their own loupe type that is Galilean, prismatic, and plate, mounting option or frame, and the LED illuminator. This helps the users in developing ophthalmic loupes as per their demand which suits their comfort and helps in maintaining their posture.
