Tonometer Market

Global Tonometer Market is expected to foresee significant growth. APAC to lead the growth!

Tonometry is a diagnostic method that, using different tools allows the evaluation of the pressure existing inside the human eye. The rising prevalence of eye diseases such as glaucoma and myopia has a significant contribution to the market of the tonometer. For instance, as per the National Health Portal, in India, glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness with at least 12 million people affected and nearly 1.2 million people blind from the disease. More than 90 percent of cases of glaucoma remain undiagnosed in the community. Furthermore, the surging geriatric population coupled with the increasing ocular diseases among them is also driving the market growth of the tonometer.  Therefore, increasing demand for eye-care devices is expected to drive the global tonometer market at a CAGR of 5%, during the forecast period.  

COVID-19 has slowed the growth of the tonometer market, as countries were forced to implement lockdowns during the first half of 2020. The healthcare facilities were only treating emergency cases and postpended the inessential appointments including eyecare centers. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic also halted the supply chain which results in a shortage of the raw material required for the manufacturing of the devices.

Based on technology, the market has been categorized into applanation tonometer, non-contact tonometer, rebound tonometer, indentation tonometer, and others. Amongst these, the applanation tonometer category is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The applanation tonometer measures the internal fluid pressure of the eye. It involves a slit lamp equipped with forehead and chin supports and a tiny, flat-tipped cone that gently comes into contact with the cornea. Furthermore, the test measures the amount of force needed to temporarily flatten a part of your cornea. Additionally, the higher accuracy and the painless diagnostic procedure are attributed to the segmental growth of the applanation segments during the forecast period.

Based on the portability, the market has been categorized into desktop and handheld. Among them, the handheld segment is expected to have the fastest growth in the market owing to its ergonomic design and affordable prices. Furthermore, the rising demand for portable and homecare diagnostic devices results in the market growth of the handheld tonometer. For instance, in March 2021, iCare launched iCare home 2. The iCare HOME2 tonometer provides ease of use in measuring patients’ real-world IOP outside normal clinic hours to help support glaucoma management.

Based on type, the market is classified into direct and indirect. In 2020, the indirect category accounted for a significant share of the market and is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the rising demand for non-invasive diagnostic procedures with higher accuracy. The presence of a large number of diagnostic tests available in the category attributed to the growth of the segment in the tonometer market.

Based on end-users, the market is classified into hospitals & clinics, specialty centers, and others. In 2020, the specialty centers accounted for a significant share in the market owing to the rising number of ophthalmic disorders and the specialty of the centers in them. In addition, Cost-effectiveness and better accessibility are the major factors expected to drive the market growth of the specialty centers.
