Glaucoma Therapeutics Market Insights:

The global glaucoma therapeutics market is anticipated to gain traction in the future. Projected CAGR is pegged at 2.9% for the forecast period (2020-2026). The market is slated to reach a valuation of US$ 7.6 Bn.

It is established that glaucoma affects 2% of the world’s population. The number increases with passing age, accounting for almost one-tenth of the population aged 70 years and above.

Moreover, people afflicted with diabetes are more likely to experience vision related problems as high blood sugar leads to diabetic retinopathy.

However, the COVID-19 outbreak is poised to slow down the pace of volumes for certain therapeutic drugs. Fortunately, supply chain disruptions are anticipated to remain absent as companies have adequate inventory.

Glaucoma Therapeutics Market: Technological Insights:

Several technological advancements in drug delivery are anticipated to leverage the scope of glaucoma therapeutics. These advancements include: implantable extended-release devices, polymer-based contact lenses and intraocular delivery technologies.

Other options include drug-eluting punctal plugs, microneedle-injection devices and micro-dosing technology. These approaches were elaborated upon at the Glaucoma 360 New Horizons Forum in San Francisco in February 2020.

These approaches are anticipated to significantly enhance the quality of life of glaucoma patients and provide more effective therapies to better preserve vision in glaucoma.

Another technological development is the Eyemate intraocular sensor, which offers a new way to reliably measure 24 h intraocular pressure. The sensor is designed to stay in the patient’s eye indefinitely.

It does not require any battery. It derives its power through electromagnetic inductive coupling to an external magnetic field generator.

Glaucoma Therapeutics Market Leaders

The global glaucoma therapeutics market consists of the following market players: Allergan plc, Merck & Co., Inc., Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc., Santen Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd., Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Aerie Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Out of these, Novartis AG comprises the maximum market share of glaucoma therapeutics drugs.

This is because of its Alcon division which focuses on development of eye care products. Some of its brands include Travatan, Simbrinza and Azarga, which contribute the maximum revenue share to Novartis’s revenue.

Allergan Plc., occupies the second position in the market, and include top selling brands like Lumigan, Alphagan, Ganfort and Combigan. More recently, the company also received an approval from the FDA to launch its DURYSTATM Biodegradable Sustained-Release Implant. This device is designed to reduce intraocular pressure in open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension patients.

COVID-19 Market Insights:

The COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to moderately impact the glaucoma therapeutics market. Leading players are ensuring that the supply of critical products is not hampered. For instance, Alcon has initiated its Global Crisis Management program to implement business continuity measures and action plans.

The company’s manufacturing sites are open and are working to mitigate supply chain disruptions. Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Inc., now known as Bausch Health, is directing its resources to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. It is working with multiple health authorities to make VIRAZOLE available as a potential treatment for COVID-19.

Aerie Pharmaceuticals, however, has registered a decline in the pace of volumes of its Rocklatan and Rhopressa ophthalmic drugs in the first quarter of 2020. A positive partial offset has been witnessed from increasing three months’ supply activity. However, with many eye care professionals’ offices remaining closed, new prescription growth has slowed.

Fortunately, no supply chain disruptions have been experienced for the Rocklatan and Rhopressa drugs. The company believes it has approximately three years of starting materials and active pharmaceutical ingredients in inventory. Additionally, an adequate supply of finished products for a period of six months is also available.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Analyst’s Viewpoint:

The glaucoma therapeutics market is poised to expand positively in the future. Increasing preference for combination drugs, coupled with technological breakthroughs in glaucoma treatment are key growth levers. Moreover, application of nanotechnology is poised to offer convenience to glaucoma patients and enhance their quality of life. Regionally, North America is set to dominate the glaucoma therapeutics market, while Asia-Pacific shows promising growth prospects. The recent COVID-19 outbreak is not anticipated to disrupt supply chains of key manufacturers engaged in producing glaucoma therapeutic drugs. This is attributed to implementation of business continuity plans and robust co-ordination across departments.
