Eye Melanoma Market Scenario:


Melanoma is the cancer of melanin-producing cells. Eye melanoma or ocular melanoma can develop in the middle of the three layers of the eye, i.e., in between the sclera, retina, and uvea. The diseased layers of the eye cannot be visually examined, making the diagnosis of the disease difficult. The sensation of flashing lights, blurry vision in one eye, and loss of peripheral vision are some of the common symptoms of the eye melanoma. Increasing prevalence of the eye cancer and growing geriatric population are the major drivers of the market growth. According to the Cancer Research U.K, approximately 750 new cases of eye cancer were reported on a yearly basis within the U.K from 2013-2015.


Moreover, it was estimated that from the last decade, the prevalence of eye cancer has increased by 25% in the U.K. Additionally, rising healthcare expenditures and increasing research and development investments by the major players of the market boosts the market growth. However, lack of awareness, high diagnostics, and surgical procedures costs are estimated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. The cost of the therapeutic procedures like laser iridotomy is estimated to be around USD 1,068 to USD 1,188. This makes such procedures an out of pocket concern for many patients.


Eye Melanoma Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period.
