Cataract Surgery Devices Market Trends



  • Rising prevalence of cataract to propel market growth


Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that the market for cataract surgery devices will rise significantly due to the increasing prevalence of cataract. The rising prevalence of cataracts is creating a major opportunity for cataract surgery devices expansion, which will ultimately accelerate market growth over the anticipated years. Globally, 30 million cataract surgeries were carried out in 2022. Over 10 million cataract operations are carried out worldwide year, with rates ranging from 100 to 6000 procedures per million people. Most ophthalmologists—about 50%—regularly operate on cataracts. Additionally, it is anticipated that the market value for cataract surgery devices would grow over the forecast period due to rising awareness of the illness and developing healthcare infrastructure in emerging nations. Furthermore, one key factor that is anticipated to fuel the market expansion for cataract surgery devices throughout the forecast period is aging. One in five persons over the age of 65 have cataracts, for instance, according to the AGS Health in Aging Foundation in 2019. Also, the likelihood of having a cataract is 50.0% if the person is in his mid-seventies. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR for cataract surgery devices.Figure 1: Cataract Incidence by AgeCataract Incidence by Age

Furthermore, the advent of laser technology is the most notable of the many positive developments that market participants have brought about for the devices and equipment used in cataract surgery. The corneal incision, the opening in the lens capsule, and information about the lens are all performed during cataract surgery with laser assistance. This industry has been significantly impacted by the development of laser technology, which has improved cataract surgery and introduced new levels of safety and accuracy. Femtosecond laser systems have greatly improved the accuracy of cataract surgeries and may soon outperform conventional hand-held procedures. For instance, after realizing the enormous demand and advantages of laser technology, Abbott laboratories, which lacked this technology, acquired Optimedica for $250 million to enter the market for cataract surgery devices.


However, the development of the global market for cataract surgery devices is being significantly influenced by the accessibility of cutting-edge, high-quality IOL implants. In this surgery, the implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL) is a widely accepted method. An intraocular lens is an artificial lens that is implanted inside the eye to take the role of the retina's natural lens, which is typically surgically removed during this procedure. IOL implants that are state-of-the-art and of the highest calibre can lessen the need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery and offer lifelong vision clarity. IOL implants are typically used more advanced by younger persons than by elderly people. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate cataract surgery devices market revenue globally.


Cataract Surgery Devices Market Segment Insights


Cataract Surgery Devices Device Type Insights


The  Cataract Surgery Devices Market segmentation, based on device type, includes Intraocular lens (IOL), Ophthalmic Viscoelastic Device (OVD), Phacoemulsification Equipment and Femtosecond Laser Equipment. The intraocular lens (IOL) segment held the majority share in 2023 in the  Cataract Surgery Devices Market data. Medical devices are utilised during intraocular lens (IOL) cataract surgery to remove cataracts from the eyes. IOLs are used to correct eyesight by being placed into the eye through a tiny incision. IOLs can be made of artificial materials or can be made by physically removing the normal lens and substituting it with an IOL.


Cataract Surgery Devices End-Users Insights


The  Cataract Surgery Devices Market data, based on end-users, includes Ophthalmology Centers, Hospitals and Clinics. The hospitals segment dominated the cataract surgery devices market revenue for cataract surgery devices in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2024-2032. Throughout the projection period, the hospitals segment is expected to be driven by an increase in the number of cataract operations performed in hospitals across all geographical regions. The adoption of cataract surgery devices in hospitals is likely to be boosted by a number of factors, including changing healthcare infrastructure in developing nations and an increase in the number of cutting-edge healthcare facilities, which will ultimately speed up the growth of the hospital segment in the market over time.
