Global Corneal Surgery Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during forecasted period 2017-2023.
Corneal surgery devices are the devices used during the transplantation of cornea. Visual impairment can be caused due to genetic factors, diseases like diabetes and other infectious diseases and much more. According to WHO, 422 million people are suffering from diabetes globally and this number is increasing at the rate of 8.5%. According to American Academy of Ophthalmology, diabetes is responsible for causing visual complication in approximately 4.5 million Americans. An increasing number of surgical procedures and rising prevalence of diabetes and other diseases has promoted growth of the market. Increasing aging population, introduction on advanced devices for treatment and increasing healthcare expenditure has also contributed in the growth of the market. Moreover, continuous developments and high advancement in the corneal surgery devices, increasing incidence of diabetes, and increasing number of corneal surgeries has provided fuel for the growth of the market. Whereas, high cost of treatment and risk of infection due to devices has hampered the growth of the market. The risk of infection is very high since the cornea has no blood vessels and it derives its nutrients from the aqueous humor. Thus, prophylaxis treatment is an important part of the treatment even if there is no infection. Cornea rejection, occurs in about 20% of cases. Graft failure can also occur at any time after the cornea is transplanted, even years or decades later. These complications are the greatest barriers for the global corneal surgery market.
