Research and Markets logo

The global glaucoma therapeutics market has reached a value of 6.8 billion US dollars in 2020. Going forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during 2021-2026. Bearing in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst continuously monitors and assesses the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors. This information is included in the report as a major contributor to the market.

Glaucoma therapy refers to various treatment alternatives for primary open-angle (POA) and closed-angle (CAP) glaucoma. The disease is characterized by structural changes in the optic nerves which usually lead to vision loss and blindness. Treatment of glaucoma can be initiated with topical eye drops, which consist primarily of beta-blockers, prostaglandin analogs, cholinergic carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and alpha-adrenergic agonists. These eye drops minimize the production of fluid in the eyes, thereby reducing intraocular pressure (IOP). This can be followed by traditional or laser surgeries or a combination of the two, which use products such as implantable extended-release devices, polymer-based contact lenses, drug-eluting tear plugs, micro-needle injection devices and micro-dosing technologies.

One of the key factors driving the growth of the market is the increasing prevalence of glaucoma across the world. Glaucoma is very common in patients with diabetes and other eye disorders, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and dry eyes. In this light, the increase in the geriatric population, which is more susceptible to such diseases, creates positive prospects for the growth of the market. In addition, the growing health awareness among the masses and the growing preference for laser glaucoma surgery is also driving the growth of the market. In addition, the development of innovative combined excavations acts as another growth factor. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are creating anti-glaucoma drugs and prostaglandin analogues in combination with two or more drugs to control high IOP levels. Other factors, including the advent of advanced glaucoma diagnostic techniques, as well as improved healthcare infrastructure, are expected to further drive the market.
