Intraocular Lenses: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – With the global population graying at a rapid pace, vision care is undisputedly an expanding segment of the medical industry. The segment continues to drive the market for medical devices such as intraocular lenses owing to the growing number of cataract and refractive surgeries performed every year. The market today is inundated with numerous types, and styles of Intraocular Lenses (IOLs), varying in size, and attachment mechanisms. With several new product development initiatives up their sleeves, leading players are expected to unravel a slew of new and advanced products in the upcoming years. From a technology perspective, IOLs have, over the past decade, witnessed a landmark shift from the conventional hard IOLs to foldable IOLs. Accommodative IOLs are cutting edge breed of lenses designed to offer multi-focal vision through adroit adjustment to the movement of the ciliary body in the eye. Enthused by the numerous dynamic benefits offered by silicone and acrylic, other developing regions across the world are exhibiting astounding interest in the technology variant, which is fast waning in developed markets such as the US, and Europe.
As stated by the new market research report on Intraocular Lenses, the US continues to remain the largest regional market. Cataract surgery with an IOL implant is a highly practicable solution in the US for adults over the age of 65. About 3.2 million cataract procedures are conducted annually in the US and with the number of adults over 65 years of age likely to cross 70 million by 2030, opportunities remain high in the market. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing and a high potential market for IOLs. The percentage of cataract occurrence is relatively high in the developing nations owing to the large population size. Besides, the market for ophthalmic products is as yet unsaturated in the region with more than three fourths of the population in need of vision correction treatments in some countries. Segment-wise, foldable IOLs have almost wiped out the hard IOL market globally. Major share of the growth in the IOL market in the future is likely to emanate from PC-IOLs and other advanced procedures, which are expected to corner greater share of the IOL market.
Major players in the marketplace include Alcon, Inc., Abbott Medical Optics, Inc., Bausch & Lomb, Inc., Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, EuroCrystal SA, HumanOptics AG, OPHTEC BV, and Staar Surgical Company.
