Focus on diagnostic and monitoring devices, surgical devices, vision care

DUBLIN, March 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Ophthalmic Devices Market (by Applications, Products, End Users, Regions), Impact of COVID-19, Major Transactions, Trends, Key Players Analysis, Recent Developments – Forecast to 2027” report has been added to from offer.

The Global Ophthalmic Devices Market is Expected to Reach US$68.2 billion by 2027

Ophthalmic devices are designed for diagnostic, surgical and vision correction purposes. These devices are continuously gaining importance and adoption due to the high prevalence of various ophthalmic diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and other vision-related problems.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO): Worldwide, at least 2.2 billion people are visually impaired or blind, of whom at least 1 billion have preventable or unavoidable visual impairment. not yet been processed. Hence, the growing number of eye-related disorders propels the demand for vision care devices, which in turn propels the growth of the ophthalmic devices market.

However, factors such as the high cost of ophthalmic devices and shortage of skilled professionals with expertise in ophthalmic surgery are expected to hamper the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Ophthalmic Devices Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has become a global stress test. As the number of people infected with the virus continues to rise around the world, uncertainties about global economic growth are growing.

The COVID-19 pandemic has limited the growth of the ophthalmic devices market, mainly by Europe, Asia and the United States, by the social restrictions and other precautionary measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, when governments started to lift social restrictions, the negative revenue trend of these companies started to stabilize and level off before the third quarter of 2020.

In the coming years, ophthalmologists are expected to witness an increase in the influx of patients, thereby driving the ophthalmic devices market.
