Scleritis Market Size

ID: MRFR//1224-HCR | 90 Pages | Author: Rahul Gotadki| June 2024

Scleritis is often associated with autoimmune and rheumatic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. The prevalence of these underlying conditions significantly influences the market for scleritis treatment, with a focus on addressing the systemic factors contributing to inflammation.
Scleritis has been reported overlaps patients of different age group, but tends to be more frequent in adults. It is paramount to recognize patient demographics with scleritis, especially with regard to age distribution and gender, in order to shape the treatment policy based on these results and foster any potential trends in the market for specialized therapies.
The lymphatic system organization and role modulation in scleritis assists development of specific, targeted treatment attitudes. The discovery of some specific cytokines and inflammatory mediators as reasons for scleritis help pharmaceutical companies to develop biologic drugs and immunomodulators for the treatment of scleritis.
The market of scleritis treatments is impacted by ophthalmic innovations like vision technologies and laboratory examination tools. More accurate diagnostics, earlier detection and surveillance of scleritis translate to improved outcomes for patients, thus, highlighting the efforts made in the field of modern ophthalmic equipment.
One of the frequently used therapy drugs in scleritis drugs is corticosteroids. The key function is to bring the inflammation down. The market reflects adventurousness in steroid preparations, dosage patterns and other anti-inflammatory trends that prevent reliance on long-term steroid therapy and side effects minimisation.
One of the major therapeutic agents in treating scleritis includes immunosuppressive medications; therefore, these are particularly helpful in the treatment of the severe or recurring inflammation. The advancement of drug development in the field of immunosuppressive is one of the key factors that affects the market of scleritis treatment as the drugs are targeted towards high efficacy and low risk.
The various subtypes which scleritis can present as, anterior, posterior, or necrotizing, can be found among the different forms. The difference between the characteristics of distinct types and the therapies needed for each subtype can be used to refine market strategies and focus on personalizing approach for different patient segments according to their type.

Ongoing clinical trials and research initiatives in the field of scleritis contribute to the market by expanding the understanding of the disease and exploring novel therapeutic options. Research funding drives innovation, supporting the development of new treatments and interventions.
The extent of health insurance coverage for scleritis treatments affects patient access to medical interventions. Comprehensive insurance policies that cover immunosuppressive medications, biologics, and ophthalmic procedures impact the overall demand for scleritis care.

Scleritis Market Overview


Scleritis Market Size was valued at USD 2.9 Billion in 2023. The Global Scleritis industry is projected to grow from USD 3.08 Billion in 2024 to USD 4.99 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032).

Scleritis is a medical condition that causes painful inflammation of sclera (white part of the eye). In some severe cases, the disease is reported to cause loss of vision, i.e., by affecting episclera and sclera. Thus, its timely diagnosis and treatment are necessary against scleritis. Focal redness or violaceous discoloration, scleral thickening, late scleral, and scleral necrosis are some of the prominent symptoms associated with the disease.


It is established that more than 50% of scleritis cases are associated with autoimmune disease, including rheumatoid arthritis. The prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis is increasing and, thus, the susceptible scleritis patient population. It is suggestive that the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis was about 0.5–1.0% within regional boundaries of North America and Northern Europe. This scleritis market is indicating a positive market growth during the forecast period, 2022–2030.


Moreover, factors such as the growing aging population and increasing per capita healthcare expenditure boost the market growth. However, lack of awareness in the middle-income countries and the absence of targeted treatment is estimated to restraint the market growth during the forecast period.
