Report Description

Ocular Implants Market is expected to exceed the market valuation of more than US$ 17.7 billion in 2027 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 6% during the forecast period (2021-2027). This is due to the increase in the aging population across the globe and the availability of reimbursement facilities which is boosting the market growth. For instance: as per census.gov in the 2030s when baby boomers will be older than 65 years, 21% of the American population will be elderly which is a significant rise from 15% in 2018. In addition, the advancement in ocular implant technology is also enhancing the market growth globally.

The advancing technologies and the growing elderly populations are the main reasons for the high market growth. Additionally, the increase in chronic and eye diseases is also helping the growth in the Ocular Implants. For instance: about 3 million Americans are currently suffering from Glaucoma. Additionally, in 2019, 16.5% of the American population was 65 years or older. With this growing elderly population, the number of eye complication due to aging are also increasing. Cataract surgeries are performed more than 2 million times every year in the United States. All this is helping the growth of the Ocular Implants market in the region.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Product, Ocular Implants segment holds the major share”

Based on Product, Ocular Implants Market is segmented into intraocular lenses, corneal implants, orbital implants, glaucoma implants, ocular implants, and others. The intralocular implants segment was valued at US$ XX billion in 2020 and is likely to reach US$ XX billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of XX% from 2021-2027. An intraocular lens (IOL) is an artificial lens inserted in the eye. It replaces the natural lens of the eye which is removed during cataract surgery. IOL helps bend light rays to enter the eye better, helping the individual see better. According to WHO, 65 million individuals are suffering from cataracts currently throughout the world. This number is increasing yearly with the increase in the geriatric population. The National Eye Institute published that cataracts are most prevalent in populations over the age of 80 (68.3% in the U.S.) and in the 70-79 age group (42.8% in the U.S).

“Amongst Material, Acrylic segment holds the major share”

Based on Material, Ocular Implants Market can be bifurcated into integrated or non-integrated. Integrated ocular implants further include aluminum oxide, hydroxyapatite, and others. Non-Integrated ocular implants further include acrylic, glass, and silicon. Acrylic accounted for a market valuation of US$ XX billion in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ XX billion by the year 2027, at a CAGR of XX% over the analyzed period. Acrylic, also known as Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a transparent thermoplastic that can be used as ocular prosthesis or as replacement intraocular lenses after the treatment of cataracts when the original lens has been removed. Acrylic has much higher compatibility with human tissues than glass. Surgeons typically implant more than 6 million lenses per year. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and a 2-3-week recovery period is required.

“Amongst Application, Glaucoma Surgery segment holds the major share”

Based on Application, Ocular Implants market can be segmented into glaucoma surgery, drug delivery, aesthetics, oculoplasty, age-related muscular degeneration, and others. The glaucoma surgery segment generated revenue of US$ XX billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period to reach a market valuation of US$ XX billion by 2027F. This was since there is a growing awareness about this disease among people increases the demand for its early treatment. In 2017, there were an estimated 57.5 million people affected with glaucoma worldwide and this number has gone up to 76 million in 2020.

“Amongst End-User, Hospitals segment holds the major share”

Based on End-User, the market is segmented into hospitals, specialty clinics, eye institutes, and others. The hospitals’ segment was valued at US$ XX billion in 2020 and is likely to reach US$ XX billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of XX% from 2021-2027. However, the fastest-growing segments are anticipated to be eye institutes with a CAGR of XX% owing to the rising eye care services in remote areas. The number of people above the age of 60 years is expected to become 2.1 billion by 2050. Additionally, by 2050, around 50% of the world will be myopic due to the significant increase of myopia among young children. This trend is due to an increase in the number of people needed ocular implants and boosts the growth of the ocular implants market.
