Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration Market Trends



  • Growing Prevalence of Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration with growing geriatric population to boost the market growth.


Despite an increasing life expectancy and decreasing fertility levels, the older population in the world is growing rapidly, according to a UN report published in December 2020. In 2020, 727 million people were 65 or older, and the number is predicted to rise to 1.5 billion by 2050, according to the same report. There is a projected increase in the proportion of people aged 65 and over in the population from 9.3% in 2020 to 16.0% in 2050. The same is predicted in China. The UN projects a rise in the share of seniors from 12% in 2020 to 26% by 2050.


To support national and international health goals, comprehensive and comparable health spending estimates are crucial to health policy and planning. On February 20, 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a new report on health expenditure, indicating that  health spending increased by 6% in low- and middle-income countries and 4% in high-income countries. There is a shift in how external and domestic funding is used, but in middle-income countries, external funding is declining. Governments spend less than 40% on primary health care.


Only a few medications, primarily anti-VEGFs, are approved to treat age-related macular degeneration. Anti-VEGF drugs require repeated and inconvenient intraocular injections, which makes treatment more burdensome and results in non-adherence. It is being developed by companies to develop longer-acting anti-VEGFs and vitreous implants to facilitate sustained drug delivery to overcome this obstacle. It is expected that long-acting anti-VEGF drugs such as Beovu and Vabysmo will propel market growth in the coming years. Still, the entry of biosimilars and a high adoption rate of off-label drugs like impede market growth. 


However, the FDA approved a biosimilar version under the brand name BYOOVIZ in September 2021 for treating wet AMD, myopic choroidal neovascularization, and retinal vein occlusion in the United States. This is another factor driving the growth of the dry age-related macular degeneration market revenue.


Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration Market Segment Insights


Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration Stages Insights


The dry age-related macular degeneration market segmentation, based on stages, includes early age-related macular degeneration, intermediate age-related macular degeneration, and late age-related macular degeneration. The early age-related macular degeneration segment held the majority share in 2021, contributing to around ~35-37% with respect to the dry age-related macular degeneration market revenue. As AMD patient numbers increase at this stage, it is difficult to distinguish between early-stage AMD and later-stage AMD. Early-stage AMD does not result in vision loss and is diagnosed by the presence of medium-sized drusen beneath the retina. The drusen are deposits of amorphous debris that form near the retinal pigment epithelium's basement membrane.


Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration Age Group Insights


The dry age-related macular degeneration market segmentation, based on age group, includes above 75 years, above 60 years, and above 40 years. The above 75 years segment dominated the dry age-related macular degeneration market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. In the elderly, vision loss is a serious problem since it gets worse over time. There are two primary types of macular degeneration dry macular degeneration and wet macular degeneration. Both are potentially fatal and require medical attention, which is why there is an increasing number of elderly patients in the dry age-related macular degeneration market growth.


Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration Route of Administration Insights


The dry age-related macular degeneration market data has been bifurcated by route of administration into oral and injectables. The oral segment dominated the dry age-related macular degeneration market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Nutrition therapy is prescribed as the main preventative measure for dry age-related macular degeneration. Zinc, copper, beta-carotenoids, and other antioxidants are prescribed. Because most of the clinical studies have used this route of administration, it holds the largest share of the dry age-related macular degeneration market.
