Sales Analysis of Intraocular Lens (2017-2021) & Market Forecast Estimations (2022-2032)

The world has witnessed a prominent increase in the incidence of cataracts and this has led to an increased number of cataract surgeries being performed across the world. This is expected to primarily drive the intraocular lenses market potential across the forecast period.

Increasing prevalence of diabetes in the general population is one of the major factors that is causing cataract problems and is expected to positively impact sales of intraocular lenses over the years to come. The growing geriatric population is also one of the more important prospects that favor intraocular lenses market growth since aging people are more prone to vision impairment and cataracts.

Technological innovations, the development of novel intraocular lenses, and the rising adoption of premium intraocular lenses are also expected to uplift the overall intraocular lens demand over the next ten years.

However, the lack of favorable reimbursement for postoperative issues and the use of premium intraocular lenses are expected to have a hindering effect on the overall market potential through 2032.

From 2022 to 2032, sales of intraocular lenses are slated to increase at a steady CAGR of 5%.

Will Increasing Incidence of Diabetes Impact Intraocular Lens Demand?

“Rising Prevalence of Diabetes Increases the Risk of Vision Impairment”

Diabetes and vision impairment are directly related as an increase in blood sugar levels leads to structural changes in the lens of the eyes. Hence, diabetic people are more prone to cataracts and other vision impairment issues, which is expected to favor sales of intraocular lenses through 2032.

Moreover, the rising senescent population across the world is also expected to drive market growth across the forecast period as these aging people are more prone to diabetes and ophthalmic conditions.

“Affordable Nature of Monofocal Lenses Backs their Popularity”

The global intraocular lenses market, based on product, is segmented into monofocal intraocular lenses and premium intraocular lenses. The premium intraocular lenses are further segmented into multifocal intraocular lenses, toric intraocular lenses, and accommodative intraocular lenses.

Monofocal intraocular lenses are anticipated to be highly popular across the forecast period owing to their low cost as compared to premium intraocular lenses. The recommendation of monofocal intraocular lenses by ophthalmologists and favorable reimbursement coverage for these lenses are other factors that are expected to drive their popularity over the next ten years.
