Ophthalmic Lasers Market Overview


The Ophthalmic Lasers Market is expected to reach USD 5.3 billion and expected to register CAGR 19.7% during the forecast period (2022-2030). Ophthalmic lasers are medical devices that are used to treat eye ailments like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. The laser console, foot pedal, and laser delivery system are the three major components of a laser system. In the ophthalmic laser treatment, laser energy is delivered to the patient's eye using a variety of delivery methods connected to the console through a fiber optic cable. This treatment can also be used to perform procedures like photocoagulation, vitrectomy, and laser capsulotomy.


The global market of ophthalmic lasers is predicted to rise as the geriatric population with ocular diseases grows, as does the number of product approvals and the frequency of chronic ophthalmic disorders. Furthermore, chronic diseases such as diabetes are responsible for retinal illnesses and the rising prevalence of eye ailments, thus contributing to the market's growth. The market is also growing with a rise in the senior population, resulting in more patients with vision problems or damaged eyes.

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.

Recent Development


The EVO/EVO+ Visian Implantable Collamer Lens is available for the first time in Illinois at Kovach Eye Institute. This lens has been recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the correction of myopia and myopia with astigmatism. EVO is an additive surgery that does not require the removal of corneal tissue or your natural lens, unlike other procedures. An EVO lens works with the natural elements of the eye to improve vision, comparable to adding a lens to a camera.


Ziemer USA, Inc., a subsidiary of Ziemer AG (Switzerland), has announced a new relationship with CorneaGen, a manufacturer and developer of FEMTO Laser Technology and Corneal Diagnostic equipment. Both firms hope to add new applications to the Z8 through their collaborative development efforts. The enhanced applications will allow the Z8 to undertake innovative corneal therapeutic treatments and have a significant clinical impact on patients.Intended Audience:
