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

The global Tonometer market size is expected to be worth around US$ 483.10 million by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Tonometer market size was valued at US$ 319.7 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Rapidly increasing geriatric population and improving life expectancy are some of the major factors expected to contribute toward market growth. People aged 60 and above have an increased risk of developing glaucoma. As these devices play a significant role in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, people with diabetes are twice as likely to develop glaucoma as compared to non-diabetics. Additionally, the International Diabetes Federation reported that around 463 million adults (aged 20-79 years) were living with diabetes in 2019, and the number is expected to reach 700 million by 2045. Increasing prevalence of glaucoma risk factors, such as myopia, hypertension, and diabetes, is expected to drive the demand for advanced tonometers in the long run. These devices significantly reduce the risk of infection, are highly convenient and easy to use, and can be used at home as well once the patients have been trained.    

Report Highlights

Based on type, the market is classified into application, rebound, indentation, and dynamic contour. The applanation market is further segmented into Goldmann and Perkins applanation tonometry, non-contact tonometer, and ocular response analyzer. Indentation tonometers include Schiotz tonometers, pneumotonometers, and tono-pens.

Applanation tonometer held the largest market share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. The advent of technologically advanced tonometers with improved diagnostic accuracy and patient comfort features contributes to segment growth. For instance, Ocular response analyzer G3 by Reichert measures IOP accurately without corneal contact, thereby eliminating the need for anesthesia and sterilization. However, risks associated with traditional Goldmann and Perkins tonometers, such as cross-contamination or corneal abrasion, are expected to hamper segment growth in the future.   

Rebound tonometer is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period. Increasing inclination toward quick, easy to use, sensitive, and portable devices is contributing to the growth of this segment. Rebound tonometer is a handheld device that does not require professional skills or intensive pre-training, and is hence a popular choice for in-home care and screening programs. Icare Finland is a major market player in this segment wherein the majority of its rebound tonometers are approved by regulatory bodies such as the U.S. FDA and EU.         

Based on portability, the tonometer market is classified into desktop and handheld devices. Handheld tonometer held the largest market share in 2018 and expected to grow at a steady rate over the forecast period. The significant share of this segment can be attributed to factors such as ergonomic design and affordable prices.

Desktop tonometers such as Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) or Dynamic Contour Tonometer (DCT) measure IOP independent of the corneal biochemical properties. An increasing number of ocular surgeries such as keratoplasty, glaucoma, cataract, and other refractive surgeries is expected to drive the segment’s growth. IOP measurement supported with a detailed study of corneal biomechanical properties is crucial in the treatment of these conditions to reduce future medical costs.

Handheld tonometer is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Tono-pen, Perkins tonometer, and rebound tonometer are commercially available as handheld devices. Portability, usage convenience, and enhanced patient comfort of handheld tonometer are the factors expected to drive the growth of this market over the forecast period. For instance, Icare HOME by Icare Finland is a compact handheld rebound tonometer that accurately measures IOP with a single push of a button and can even be used by the patient at home once the patient has been properly trained regarding its usage.

Based on end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, ophthalmic centers, and others. The ophthalmic centers segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to large patient pool, increasing government and private funding, and the availability of skilled professionals.

The ophthalmic centers segment is also expected to grow at a steady rate over the forecast period. Cost-effectiveness and accessibility are the major factors expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Glaucoma management requires regular check-ups and follow-ups. Considering its growing prevalence, it could only be managed by a collaborative effort of all the end-users such as ophthalmic clinics and hospitals. Furthermore, with glaucoma care cost being reimbursed in several countries such as U.S. and Germany, the market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period.
