Optical Biometry Devices Market Overview

The Optical Biometry Devices Market is anticipated to reach USD 302.23 Million by 2030 at 4.60% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030. The optical biometry devices market is one of the high potential markets during the forecast period. The study further indicates that this market will reach its peak due to the high demand for better vision quality among people.

Eye problems are one of the common and great problems among people. These problems occur in the human body for various reasons. One of the main reasons for this problem is the growth of the geriatric population ( old age). Besides this reason, there are many reasons like eye disease, radiation, lack of nutrition, and the mutation in human genes. The optical market growth analyses the situation like market trends, market development and users and segmentation many others. The experts of the National Institute of Ageing (NIA) are saying that the growth of the geriatric population will reach up to 72 million by the end of 2030.

The government is taking steps like setting up eye disease camps and developing awareness among people. Besides these reasons, optical biometry devices help protect the eyes from different radiation and rays. These products help to see properly more. As per the historic data period, in 2017 the World Health Organization (WHO) took a step forward to make collaboration with different partners. This step was initially taken to celebrate and spread awareness on World Sight Day. This was a great strategy to highlight the facts about eye disorders.

Optical Biometry Devices Market Covid 19 analysis

In the year 2020, a deadly virus was spread out all around the world. It became a disastrous situation not only in human life but also in every step globally. Many progression suddenly forced to stop because of the outbreak of this virus. This situation slowly turned into a pandemic situation. Governments decided to lockdown and social distancing. These situations made a drastic change in every business. In this situation, people started working from home. This situation made an increasing screen using time among people. Due to this process, people started suffering various eye-related problems.

This is the main reason for the growth of this market. On the other hand, the business faces many difficulties in the growth segment. The sudden closure of eye clinics is one of the main causes of the reduction in this business. Besides these facts, the reduced numbers of elective surgeries, and the delayed response in eye treatment also made a great loss in this market. People were fearing the outbreak of COVID-19 and getting infected. The online store and virtual checkup system were making the profits in this market. The offline optical biometry devices market saw a bad time during this situation. Universal eye health is a worldwide action program. In 2014- 2019 this plan was launched to spread awareness about blindness and vision restoration. This plan influenced the government to take further steps and assign funds for various programs about eye disease and educating the people.

Optical Biometry Devices Market Dynamics

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :

    Optical biometry, also known as ophthalmic biometry, is a highly accurate, non-invasive automated method for measuring the anatomical characteristics of the eye. This method is used for intraocular lens (IOL) power calculations in clinical practice.

    Next-generation optical biometry devices reduce the undetected poor fixations by the optical ultrasound biometry devices. Furthermore, these devices are highly efficient and fast, eliminating manual errors from traditional biometry devices. For instance, Pentacam AXL is used with a single measuring operation. It has a comprehensive biometry for intraocular lens (IOL) database and provides a well-targeted screening process for eyes.

    The optical biometry devices market was valued at USD 275 million in 2018.

    The optical biometry devices market would record a CAGR of 4.60% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2030.

    The optical biometry devices market would be dominated by swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT)-based biometers.
