Ophthalmic Lasers Market Scenario:


The Ophthalmic Lasers Market was valued at over USD 1,050 in 2017 and expected to register CAGR 4.6% during the forecast period (2018–2023).


Ophthalmology is a branch of medical science which deals with complications related to eyeball and orbit. Ophthalmic lasers are important in correcting vision and repairing the damage. The growing geriatric population with ophthalmic problems, increasing number of product approvals, and increasing prevalence of chronic ophthalmic disorders are expected to drive the growth of the market. Moreover, Chronic disorders such as diabetes are responsible for retinal disorders and increasing prevalence of disorders related to the eye as well as contributing to the growth of the market. According to the World Health Organization, Diabetes is a major healthcare concern and more than 422 million adults were suffering from diabetes in 2016, and it caused approximately 2.2 million deaths.


The rising cost of ophthalmic procedures, the high price of ophthalmic lasers products, and lack of skilled personnel for the effective use of ophthalmic lasers products may hamper the growth of the market during the assessment period.

Ophthalmic Lasers Market Regional Summary


Global Ophthalmic Lasers Market Share, by Region, 2017 (%)


Source: MRFR Analysis


The Americas are likely to dominate the Global Ophthalmic Lasers Market owing to the technological advancement in the region, increasing ophthalmic disorders and rising geriatric population. Increasing geriatric population results in increasing patients with compromised vision or damaged eyeball which is driving the market growth. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is increasing rapidly and by the end of 2050 more than 7.9 million people in the US will suffer from primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Moreover, favorable reimbursement policies and government initiatives for the development of the healthcare sector are also contributing to the growth of the market.


The European market is expected to be the second-largest ophthalmic lasers market. The market growth in this region can be attributed to the increasing ophthalmic surgeries in the region, raising awareness about the innovative technologies, and improvement in the healthcare sector with respect to infrastructure and facilities. According to the European Commission, cataract surgeries are common in the European region, and more than 4.5 million cataract surgeries were performed in European countries in 2016.


Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing ophthalmic lasers market during the forecast period owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, rising investments in healthcare and expansions by market players in the region. According to the international diabetes federation, approximately 19% of the total population in the region is suffering from diabetes which is near to 84 million and caused 1.3 million deaths.


The market in the Middle East & Africa is expected to account for the smallest share of the global market due to an underdeveloped healthcare sector, lack of technical knowledge, and poor medical facilities.
