Ophthalmic Devices Market Size To Reach $9.79 Billion By 2030 | CAGR of 4.92%

Ophthalmic Devices Market Growth & TrendsThe global ophthalmic devices market size is anticipated to reach USD 9.79 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.92% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The rising geriatric population is presumed to propel the need for ophthalmic devices due to the high risk of developing chronic eye disorders. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the geriatric population will be about 72 million individuals by 2030. The rising prevalence of eye disorders, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, is also boosting product demand. As per the WHO, glaucoma accounts for 4.5 million cases of blindness globally. In the United States, glaucoma is termed the “Silent Thief of Sight,” which is the second-leading cause of blindness.

The market growth can also be attributed to technological advancements, such as the development of intraocular lenses, fundus cameras, and OCT devices. Furthermore, the increasing involvement of market players in expanding treatment solutions through strategic alliances is expected to present this market with a potential growth platform. Approximately 10% of the people suffering from eye disorders are expected to experience loss of vision despite the proper treatment, as per the statistics of the WHO, driving the clinical urgency to incorporate highly advanced ophthalmic devices. Furthermore, rising demand for minimally invasive and complication-free operative surgeries is expected to boost product demand. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of the population’s screen time was increased, resulting in increased cases of various eye issues, which will support market growth over the forecast period.

The growing geriatric population is increasing the demand for ophthalmic devices, as they are more susceptible to age-related ophthalmic disorders. According to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the geriatric population is expected to reach around 72 million by 2030. The increasing prevalence of diabetes and the incidence of diabetes-related blindness are predicted to fuel market growth. According to the World Health Organization, nearly 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, and the majority are living in low- and middle-income countries.

Increased screen time due to the lockdown measures in the COVID-19 pandemic has been associated with the onset and progression of various eye diseases, thus driving the demand for eye examinations. In June 2020, Johnson & Johnson Vision donated USD 320,000 to provide eye care to COVID-19-impacted patients. The organization conducted this donation to the Optometry Cares unit of the American Optometric Association (AOA) Foundation and the American Academy of Optometry Foundation (AAOF).

Regional Insights

North America held the largest share in 2023. A high population of older adults and rising prevalence of chronic eye conditions resulting from factors, such as high stress and unhealthy lifestyles; ultimately leading to diabetic retinopathy, are considered high-impact rendering drivers for the market. In addition, the incorporation of new reimbursement models for ophthalmologic treatment and a stringent regulatory framework aimed at patients’ safety, is expected to fuel product demand in this region.

The U.S. possesses a well-developed healthcare system with leading academic institutions and research facilities. This encourages innovations in ophthalmic devices in terms of minimally invasive surgical techniques, advanced diagnostic instruments, and personalized medicine approaches, thereby propelling growth for the U.S. market. The U.S. spends significantly on healthcare compared to other developed countries, with total healthcare spending projected to reach $4.8 trillion by 2030. This translates into increased funding for specialized therapies and devices, including eye care.
