Published Date : Jan 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices market size is expected to be worth around US$ 550.1 million by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices market size was valued at US$ 300.2 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.01% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Inc. Steady rise in geriatric population coupled with high prevalence of ocular disorders is expected to drive the growth. Constantly developing ophthalmic care facilities are expected to contribute to the demand for Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices (OVDs) in near future.

Increasing prevalence of diabetes is expected to be a major factor boosting the market growth. Patients with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are prone to develop cataract at some point in time. Currently, the surgical procedure is the only treatment option for cataract, thereby driving the demand for ophthalmic viscosurgical devices-an integral part of the cataract surgery. Furthermore, the global burden of cataract can be subjected to the increasing Cataract Surgical Rate (CSR) in countries, such as India, Japan, U.S., and several Western European countries.

Favorable government and non-government initiatives, such as ophthalmic screening programs, state and national eye care schemes, ophthalmic training, and education programs are expected to play a significant role in the ophthalmic viscosurgical devices market growth. For instance, the World Diabetes Foundation conducts training and development programs for ophthalmic HCP at primary care in regions of underdeveloped economies, improving the reach and awareness of cataract treatment procedures.

Report Highlights

Based on type, the ophthalmic viscosurgical devices market is segmented into cohesive, dispersive, and viscoadaptive. Dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices provide endothelial protection and are also used for lubricating surgical devices and Whereas, cohesive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices are high molecular weight viscoelastic and are used for anterior chamber space maintenance during insertion and removal of IOLs. Therefore, both cohesive and dispersive OVDs are concomitantly used in performing routine ocular surgeries.

Most of the major market players have a combination package of cohesive and dispersive OVD contained in a single unit, considering both OVDs are used simultaneously during procedures. The combination package is cost-effective, ensures quality standards, and eases out ophthalmic surgeons’ activities. For instance, DuoVisc is a brand of Alcon that contains both dispersive OVD VisCoat and a Cohesive OVD ProVisc contained in a single package.

Viscoadaptive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period, attributed to the increasing number of complex ocular surgical cases and its biphasic benefit eliminating the need for two syringes. viscoadaptive OVD acts as both cohesive as well as dispersive contained in a single syringe and its conversion into cohesive or dispersive depend upon the applied shear rate. They are preferred in complex ocular surgeries such as pediatric cataract surgery, patient with floppy iris syndrome, trauma, Fuchs dystrophy, and other cases to avoid post-surgical complications.

The most commonly used viscoelastic are sodium hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, and methylcellulose. Sodium hyaluronate and chondroitin sulfate can be obtained from both animal and biological origin, but methylcellulose is obtained from a synthetic source. Methylcellulose is commercially available in the form of Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) they are used for lubricating surgical equipment and IOL due to their exceptional wetting and coating properties.

Sodium hyaluronate based ophthalmic viscosurgical devices is extensively used in ophthalmic surgery due to the properties, such as high moisture retention, biocompatibility, and purity. Sodium hyaluronate from the biological origin is rapidly being replaced by its synthetic version because it eliminates the need for harsh extraction conditions, purification cost, and yield issues concerned with animal origin.

Viscoelastic from biological sources are preferred over animal sources. However, the presence of bacterial endotoxin which capable of initiating inflammatory response on usage could restrain the demand. Therefore, the current trends are genetically engineered host bacteria free from endotoxin production in this segment. Since viscoelastic is the core component in OVDs, vertical backward integration across the supply chain is one of the main strategic initiatives undertaken by the market players to ensure quality standards.

The cataract surgery segment held the largest market share in 2020 and is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period. Decreased intraoperative surgical complications and technological advancements that help deliver successful surgical outcomes in complex cataract procedures are the factors contributing to the segment growth. For instance, in pediatric patients’ cataract procedure is difficult to perform because of higher elasticity of pediatric eye capsule as compared to adult eyes, this, adding complexities in capsulorhexis.

Glaucoma surgery is another lucrative segment and is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period. The ability of ophthalmic viscosurgical devices to prevent surgical complications such as hyphema and hypotony, coupled with benefits of stabilizing the anterior chamber is expected to drive the OVD adoption in glaucoma surgery. Cohesive OVD are used more compared to dispersive OVDs in glaucoma surgery.

North America held the largest market share in 2020 and is expected to register a health CAGR over the forecast period. The presence of major market players, improved access to ophthalmic care facilities, favorable Medicare policies, and rising geriatric population are some of the key factors attributed to the regional growth.
