The global Refractive Surgery Devices market size is expected to be worth around US$ 300.8 Mn by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Refractive Surgery Devices market size was valued at US$ 180.2 Mn in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

 As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers have started spending more time on digital devices. The trend of working from home has contributed to an increase in eyestrain, dry eye, and myopia. Furthermore, the growth of the geriatric population has increased the demand for refractive surgery devices. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the geriatric population would be about 72 million individuals by 2030.

Refractive surgery allows a person to be more independent by eliminating the need for spectacles or. Consumers have managed their personal spending and emphasized health and wellbeing during the pandemic, which has increased the demand for refractive surgery devices. Whereas the market for refractive surgery devices is being hindered in developing countries due to a shortage of surgical equipment to address refractive defects.

Report Highlights

Myopia held the largest share of 30.1% in 2020 and is expected to grow at a moderate rate during the forecast period. The prevalence of myopia is increasing globally at a high rate, with a significant increase in the risks of vision impairment. As per the WHO, countries in which the prevalence of myopia has been estimated and measured as low in the past (e.g. India) will have major increases by 2050. Hyperopia held a significant share in 2020 as it is a frequent refractive disease that affects both children and adults. The frequently used method for medically correcting hyperopia is excimer laser surgery (193 nm).

The astigmatism segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate of 10.4% during the forecast period. The astigmatism segment is anticipated to boom in the market due to the advancements in technology and the increased rate of astigmatism disorder. According to the American Optometric Association, almost everyone has some degree of astigmatism, which can be corrected by most forms of refractive surgery. This is expected to boost the segment growth during the forecast period. 

The lasers segment held the largest revenue share of 44.9% in 2020 owing to the increased usage of laser surgeries for vision correction and technological advancements. The segment will expand at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028.LASIK and other laser refractive surgeries, including PRK and LASEK, are in high demand. This is due to decreasing adoption of eyeglasses or contact lenses for vision correction over refractive surgery due to the high success rate. The Refractive Surgery Council (RSC) strongly started 2021 with a nearly 30%increase in laser vision correction procedures yearly. 

The microkeratome segment is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period. The fast expansion of the geriatric population and the rise in the frequency of eye diseases are expected to drive the segment. Furthermore, technological modifications to the blade angle approach, blade's oscillation frequency, and the blade's material have been attempted to improve flap cutting and decrease uneven astigmatism, which is a significant factor fueling the segment growth.

The hospitals segment held the largest share of nearly 47.0% in 2020. The procurement of ophthalmic refractive surgical devices in these settings due to their longer shelf life is expected to contribute to the segment growth. Increased refractive surgeries, improved healthcare facilities, and favorable reimbursement policies are some of the factors expected to propel the growth of the hospitals segment at a profitable rate over the projected period. Furthermore, the growing number of hospitals in emerging countries and the improvement of existing eye care infrastructure are expanding the market.

Ambulatory surgical centers are anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The rising popularity of ambulatory surgical centers is due to convenience, closeness, and reduced costs for patients and insurance. Patients may find that ambulatory surgical centers provide more convenience than hospital OPDs, such as the ability to schedule surgery more quickly. This is expected to boost the segment growth.

North America held the largest share of over 30.0%. High incidence of refractive errors, the presence of significant market players, and the availability of effective reimbursement policies are expected to contribute to the regional market growth. According to the WHO statistics, the number of people aged 65 years and above in the country is expected to reach 78 million by 2035, which will have a positive impact on product demand. Moreover, the implementation of advanced technologies for the development of surgical products is expected to augment the market growth in the region.
